Olympus FE-370


In conclusion, the FE-370 is a great little point-and-shoot camera that can be taken almost anywhere. Olympus offers users a wealth of features in a convenient package that won't break the bank. If you are looking for a quality camera that won't...

Olympus FE370 Review at DP Interface


No doubt the FE370 produces some pretty decent photos (some competition can do better though) but the camera still compromises other key areas of shooting such as performance and battery life.

I have few complaints about the Olympus FE-370. If you are looking for a reasonably priced, compact digital camera this one is well worth considering.

About J Ledbetter's comment on 18 Mar 09 - 'For some reason that I can't figure out, when you put it in Program mode, it only allows for 5 mega pixels.' - Obviously he has set Fine Zoom ON, if you set Fine Zoom OFF 8 mega pixels is available in P mode.

FE-370 is well-built, overall a good compact camera considering the price. The problem is noise reduction rather than noise itself. Picture is smudged in indoor shot at ISO 800 and it is very ugly. You'd better not exceed ISO 400

Overall, a good camera. Being an Olymopus fan, the menu has a small learning curve, as they are all very similiar as far as that goes. Nice compact size, good sized display and no AAA' s needed. Nice setup with the rechargeable Lithium-ion.

Camera has 8 million effective pixels...only in Auto mode. For some reason that I can't figure out, when you put it in Program mode, it only allows for 5 mega pixels. I am not really happy about that. I guess that they think that people that buy...

From the specs this looked a good camera, 5 x optical zoom, easy menu system, dual memory format and well constructed body. I bought this to compare against a similar spec point and shoot camera,the Fuji J50 and found the following... The main...

See above ; I was not expecting the Olympus to fair worse, the J50 had so many bad reviews I felt it would be a sure winner but sadly not

Product Specifications

The FE-370 delivers a surprising level of performance in a compact package. Its precision 5x zoom lens captures the exciting details of every scene. Thanks to dual image stabilization, a feature that combines both mechanical and digital image stabilization and is incorporated in an FE series model for the very first time, clear images are always ensured. In addition, intelligent auto mode makes it easy to take great images - it can automatically detect a range of common shooting scenes and then adjust settings accordingly. With Advanced Face Detection technology, the FE-370 is the ideal camera for perfect pictures of human subjects. It's able to recognize up to 16 distinct faces and select the ideal shooting parameters - and matched with the smile shot function, it will automatically take the picture when it detects your subject's smile. Like its fellow FE series cameras, its small and sleek metal body features 8 megapixels. Shots can be framed and reviewed on the large 6.9cm/2.7" LCD.
