Review: Olympus FE-5010 digital camera

 

The Olympus FE-5010 takes good pictures and is easy to use. And if that's all you're looking for in a compact, then you'll probably be satisfied with this camera.

Taking pictures with the FE-5010 is straightforward. You choose from one of four basic modes: Program Auto, iAuto, Scene, or Movie. Then set the zoom and click the shutter. The FE-5010 takes it from there, employing technologies such as dual image...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Olympus Camera!

 

Wonderful product, service, and delivery as I've become accustomed to when I go through Newegg! (Ordered this camera Monday morning, was taking pictures with it by lunch on Tuesday!)

12 megapixels ; Great zoom (both optical and digital) ; Light and slim design ; Excellent owner's guide and software included ; Battery charger (and battery of course) included were a definite plus

no viewfinder (advertised as such, just used to having one on other cameras I've had) ; Battery length is OK, but get a backup for long trips

Awesome zoom!

 

I say 4.5 egss, because I wish the battery life was better. I am use to the Canon SLR cameras, which have awesome battery life. Of course they cost 4 times the price of this camera. As far as the color choices on pictures, I just want my camera to take...

Maybe made of plastic, but I haven't had any problems. I have taken this camera to amusement parks, MLB games, etc. and packed it in my purse or bag along with water bottles, keys, and much more. It still looks brand new. The zoom is fantastic. We were...

Need to practice with it to see which is your best setting for the amount of light you have and for clarity. The camera tries to do a lot of focusing for you. Sometimes it focuses on something you weren't after. I would say that this is a good camera...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Ehh.

 

Pretty poor buy. I wouldnt recommend this to anyone, a cheaper camera would be a better buy as long as it isnt plastic.

Cheap for the specs, good zoom

Plastic, very slow shutter, very poor color. This has very few lighting options and the colors are not great

Consumer review (newegg.com)

New to the Digital Camera

 

This is your standard digital camera that can be used for everything. light. 12 megapix

Does not have many shooting features. no black and white or other color changing modes. plastic feels like it could break at anytime

Great little camera!

 

I LOVE this camera! It takes fantastic photos, has a long-life rechargeable battery and is very portable! I found the menu options very intuitive and easy to use. I also love the fact that I got a great little camera for a great price. That was...
