Lag time between shots plague an otherwise excellent bargain camera.

These new FE-series cameras feature an enhanced Help Guide that makes digital photography simple for users of all levels. A tutorial "shooting guide" educates users on tips for achieving specific effects, such as "shooting into backlight" and...

Sometimes you just don't want to agonize over whether you should choose the soup or the salad, the Coke or the Pepsi, the PC or the Mac. Olympus realizes just how hard choices can be, which is why it makes the FE series of digital cameras. They're...

Extremely simple to use.

Shoddy incandescent white balance and complete automation mean severely yellow indoor photos; soft images; sluggish performance.

With poor indoor white balance, soft images, and sluggish performance, it's best to give this camera a pass.

Olympus FE-210 Digital Camera Full Review

 

The Olympus FE-210 is the most entry level of Olympus' four new entry level FE digital cameras.

2.5 inch LCD ; Lightweight, compact, good construction ; Nice built-in Guide system

No audio in movies and only 15fps framerate ; User can't select ISO or metering method ; Significant lens distortion

If you're in the market for a sub-$150 camera, the Olympus FE-210 is a viable option for you.  Decent image quality and decent speed of operation are the primary plusses, in my opinion.  Another possible selling point, especially for beginning digital...

"Perfect camera for indoors OR outdoors!!"

 

I use this in a retail store where we often take pictures of customers and items they are purchasing. It has NEVER failed to produce a picture worthy of being on Facebook without using any software to brighten or correct. I love this camera!

Easy to use and very stable

"One word, AWESOME!"

 

Firstly the brand, Olympus, the price, the results! HIGHLY recommend!

This model is VERY user friendly. Takes amazing pix! Was huge Fuji fan, not anymore, although Fuji makes great cameras.

None. I'm into photography quite heavily. Outdoor pix, i develop my own, second to none. People complaining about indoor pix, With proper lighting, great!

"Unhappy with sub par FE-210 camera!"

 

Awful product. After a few months the lens would not close. Returned it to Olympus, 2nd camera did same thing now Olympus doesn't want to correct the problem. Think twice before you purchase an Olympus product! The camera I got was obviously defective....

It came with a nice strap.

Hard to like a broken camera!
