Olympus FE-140 review:

 

Olympus FE-140 If you want a simple camera, look no further than Olympus's FE-series point-and-shoot models, which have no manual settings but include low price tags and helpful features for photography newbies. The Olympus FE-140 is at the top of the...

Extremely simple; handy features for newbies.

No manual controls; mediocre image quality.

The Olympus FE-140 is a fine selection if you don't want to make decisions, but it doesn't offer many choices either.

Olympus FE-140

 

A fairly solid, low priced digital camera. It may not have the same feature range as more advanced cameras have, but the upside to this is that there is not much to learn. You should be up and running in no time.

Ease of use ; Low price

Picture quality

"The Olympus FE-140 is an easy to use, inexpensive digital camera. With six megapixels it has plenty of power for large prints. Although you need to make some allowances for digital cameras in this price bracket I was still disappointed with the...

Consumer review (cnet.com)

Worked OK for a few years.

 

I got it on clearance for $50, so I can't complain about it too much. It actually worked fine for a couple of years. But now, I have the mysterious "BATTERY EMPTY" message even with new sets of batteries. No more camera, so I thought. But then I bought...

Steady shot worked decent.

No viewfinder, can't see the display outside. Colors are a little off, video resolution is only 320x240

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Get something else

 

All in all this camera is a flop, especially at this price. Basically, you are paying more to get a higher megapixal number which means very little. My old 3 MegaPixel Kodak camera took much clearer images. This one has pixelation at any resolution....

Hmmm...good size LCD ; Can take pictures at 2816 x 2112 ; I didn't pay for it since it was a gift? Wait no that's bad, now I have to ask for a reciept to return it with

Very grainy pictures at all resolutions ; Not that I would use a camera for video, but that is grainy and choppy as well
