Olympus FE-5030


Olympus push the boundaries on the 14MP point-and-shoot market

A 14MP camera with a 5x optical zoom for as little as £119.99 is an offer that's hard to ignore. The FE-5030 has its fair share of problems, but it caters well for the beginner's needs and few come cheaper.

Olympus FE5030 14MP Compact Digital Camera - Grey.


Easy to use, no trying to fathom things out. Good and clear picture. Not really had the time to experiment with all the facilities yet as It is new to me at the moment, but I am very satisfied with the product.
