Olympus FE-100 Review. A basic starter digital camera. It is likely to appeal to someone who does not want to break the bank on a digital camera. Ease of use is anither attraction.

Olympus FE-100

 

This is a cheap and cheerful camera, which takes pictures without fuss

There seems to be a glitch with the software, that doesn't allow old pictures to be deleted
