Olympus FE-190 review

 

With a small frame and a smaller price tag, Olympus's FE-190 hopes to attract the fashionably frugal. This 6-megapixel shooter doesn't offer the manual controls more advanced photographers desire, but its other aspects make up for its automation.

Compact; great white balance; solid images.

Few features; no manual controls.

If you don't mind the lack of features, Olympus's FE-190 offers pretty pictures and a slim body at a low price.

Is the the FE-190 a great camera for the money, or did Olympus cut too many corners to keep the price down? Find out now in our review

Remarkably stylish and well built for the price (though see issues below) ; Big 2.5" LCD display; decent outdoor and low light visibility (though see issues below) ; Easy to use, with plenty of scene modes ; Unique shooting guide feature ; Good bundled...

Lots of corner softness; occasional vignetting as well ; Redeye a big problem ; Lacks even the most basic controls (like white balance), which can cause many image quality problems (see examples in review) ; Low LCD resolution ; No optical viewfinder ;...

Unfortunately, the old adage "you get what you pay for" applies to the Olympus FE-190. Despite its nice design and low price, it's just too stripped down for me to recommend. Do yourself a favor and spend a little more on a better camera -- I've listed...

Olympus FE-190 Digital Camera Review

 

The Olympus FE-190 is one of the latest digital cameras to be added to the FE line.  The entire line is dedicated to the purposes of being easy to use and easy to afford.  The 6 megapixel FE-190 looks like a much more expensive ultra-slim camera, at...

Lovers of minimalist design will adore the slender new FE-190 digital camera from Olympus. Measuring just 18.5mm deep, this slim, metal bodied camera can be slipped into a shirt pocket to be taken anywhere. It also features a large 6.4cm LCD screen...

Olympus Stylus FE-170/FE-180/FE-190

 

Let's say you want to spend under US$200 for a new digital camera and have always liked Olympus. You're in luck because this past summer the company announced four new FE-Series point-and-shoot digital cameras. They are all in Olympus' "Easy & Fun"...

Very low price for a good 6.0 megapixel camera, Higher-res screen than its pricier siblings, Uses standard AA batteries, Jack for optional A/C adapter, Comes with rechargeable AAs and charger, Has 640 x 480 movies with sound and zoom, TruePic TURBO...

No audio, Doesn't come with rechargeable batteries or charger, 320 x 240 video without sound or zoom, Lack of TruePic TURBO processor visible in lesser picture quality, Limited ISO range (400 max), Only 10MB onboard meemory, No audio clips or voice...

So our favorite in this lineup is the FE-180. It's a very nice 6-megapixel camera with a good lens, good digital image stabilization, a decent 2.5-inch display, speedy 640 x 480 movies with sound and zoom, and a nice 22MB of internal memory for when...
