A decent camera for a decent price


If your looking for a good camera this is the one for you but remember to take care of it and it will take care of you

Excellent picture quality ; Its small size really give you a lot of bang for your buck ; Its a very flexible camera in terms of settings and what can be done with it once hooked up to your computer

The only real con about the camera is that it is fragile so be careful if you have it in your pocket while you are rock climbing or other strenuous activity. CARRYING CASE IS A MUST

olympus camera


newegg had camera here in record time and i have enjoyed using their website and have referred others to it.

great size, very compact great for being on the go. i bought this camera to carry in my purse. I generally use my Nikon SLR for special occasions. But in the past have always had olympus cameras with good luck. this camera is very easy to manuever thru...

i agree with the other review that when viewing the pics on the screen it had a orange tint to it. But i also agree that it takes good pics. Not a bad price either.

Great little camera!!!


This little camera is a great point-and-shoot, and comes with a good macro focus. The options are easy to find and activate

The buttons to go from photo mode to view mode can sometimes get stuck down, but they still function okay

Consumer review by:



When looking into the LCD screen it looks a little orange and not as clear. but when snapping a photo it comes up perfect. Just for some reason the LCD screen seems to not display as good as the picture it's self. but its not a big deal cuz its all...

Nice looking, GREAT pictures. Works well. Lots of options.

nothing really, read "other thoughts"

OLYMPUS FE360 Blue 8.0 MP 2.5" 154K LCD 3X Optical Zoom 0.7" Super-Slim All-Metal Body Digital Camera

Nice little P&S camera


Use the wrist strap. Read the manual, to learn all it can do. Bought as a gift for father-in-law, he loves it and it takes great pictures. Not as feature-full as more expensive cameras, but it gets the job done with minimum fuss for a non-camera person...

Good price, good feature set, good quality brand, good pictures. 8 MP

Can feel a bit small in the hand, may be easy to drop if not careful

Product Specifications

For those looking to step their style up a notch, the FE-360 offers the same amazing features as the FE-20 - 3x optical zoom and 8 megapixels - and even packages them in a chic metal body. Naturally, Face Detection technology is also incorporated, making the FE-360 the life of any party! Digital image stabilization with up to ISO 1000 is similarly included, ensuring that pictures will be sharp and blur-free. A 2.5" LCD display makes it easy to frame and review your shots.
