Consumer review (newegg.com)

Don't get this camera

 

My samsung impression I use to have at att was a 3mp with no frills and no flash and took better quality pictures than this thing. That was one of the worst phones for ATT for messaging too! WTH, wake up olympus!

Nothing

Everything. It doesn't register batteries that are rechargeable, regardless of the type, and says it's full the first time you turn it on, then it says empty no matter what you try. I've had this over a year now and have only been able to take about...

v good product

 

I got this for essentially the same price also refurb. from a different vendor and find it well worth the cost. The LCD is very large and it works great with an eye-fi upload device.

good price ; ease of use ; many functions

few manual controls

Consumer review (newegg.com)

wasted my money

 

I had an HP CB350, 12 MPX that was way better than this one but dropped it in water by mistake. I guess I better go back to buy another PH one.

color and a free case

blurry pics that are way worst than my phone,s 1.5 MPX pictures. the menue is kind of hard to adjust since the manual doesn,t tell you what they mean. Took me 6 days so far to try to adjust it for a desent shot and I failed

Dissappointment

 

I had a 12.1MP HP CB350 that had super quality pics than this one. Tried all the settings for most of the week on 3 different projects and came up empty. Save the time and money and look some where else.

Marked at 14 MP. Comes with a free case

Does not take pictures like a 14MP. Menue and manual are worthles and do not improve the outcom by that much

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Bad buy

 

Dont buy it.

Takes decent video

Takes worse photos then my old camera that is 5 years out dated. Every photo is either blurry, way to bright, most the time both. Has a lot of different settings but none of them take good photos. The image stabilization doesnt work at all. Plus it...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

didn't focus around the edges

 

Good standard camera, 14 mpxls, fairly easy to use

it did not take good pictures. We decided to return it because the edges were too blurry for us. We wanted a way to take pics of art, but this camera was far worse than all of our other cameras

Consumer review (newegg.com)

For the price, an OK buy.

 

Does what it's supposed to, point and shoot camera

Unless you tweak the settings every time you turn it on, every single picture taken on auto will be extremely blurry. Even with optimal settings, the picture quality isn't very good for a 12mp camera

Olympus FE-45

 

This maybe just this camera. I have to go back to manufacturer because I ordered before Christmas for a Christmas gift and tried using for New Year's Day so it's not eligible because it's after the 30 day returning policy. Won't be ordering gifts from...

Great looking camera. Favorite color. It had all the features needed, small easy to handle. It takes regular AA batteries which I prefer because remembering to charge batteries when a shot is not planned is a pain. For the price, its a good camera

Figering out the right settings was a little complicated ; recevied camera when we took pictures and view screen wasn't clear. It had white lines throught the pictures. The lighting was yellow orange and blurred. Reset the settings and still not clear...

It's reasonable

 

Good price

Uses AA batteries, which can be slow money drainer over time
