Olympus FE-180 review

 

Lack of control isn't necessarily a bad thing in cameras. If the camera does its job well, the automatic mode should be all you need to take a good snapshot. Unfortunately, cameras tend not to do their jobs well without user tweaks. Thankfully,...

Great white balance; comes with batteries and charger.

Softens details; awkward tripod mount; no manual controls.

This inexpensive shooter won't wow you with features, but its price and pictures are nice.

Better than the abysmal FE-170 but by how much?

Olympus FE-180

 

Olympus introduces the FE-180 camera with 3x zoom that proves that photography is fun. With a no-nonsense "one button, one function" design and a 6.0 million pixel CCD, the Olympus FE-180 makes taking - and printing - even larger size photos a cinch....

Olympus FE-180

 

The Olympus FE-180 is another 6.0 megapixel point and shoot camera in the FE series that featurs 3x Optical Zoom, a long battery life (up to 500 frames per charge), 2.5 inch LCD screen and USB 2.0 connectivity. Like the other new cameras in the FE...

Like the other new cameras in the FE Series of cameras from Olympus the FE-180 features digital image stabilization, 16 shooting modes and is powered by 2 AA batteries

Buy a Different Camera

 

Every digital photo needs a little sharpening. By cropping I can use some of the photos that I shoot with this camera but I am bitterly disappointed in it. I have owned six digital cameras; this is probably the worst one I've ever owned other than one...

It has 6MPs. Can be purchased for under $200, and is easy for a novice to use. It comes with a battery recharge unit and rechargeable batteries, has a built in flash. Saving the prints to the computer is easy and fast. There is a cable provided to...

This camera tends to put a fringe on objects. In my opinion this is unacceptable. For example, a tree limb will have a blue fringe or outline. A flower might have a pink fringe. The center of the shot can be quite clear but once you expand outwards...

OLYMPUS FE-180 Silver 6.0 MP 2.5" 110K LCD 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

 

Overall, I'd say that this camera is far better than the FE-170, but some of the design choices are disappointing.

This is my second Olympus camera. Before buying from newegg, I went and bought an FE-170 (an older model) from Radio Shack for slightly more than this camera. As soon as I saw neweggs price, I went and returned it, and bought this one instead ; It has...

I've found that xD cards are a bit more expensive than SD or MMC. The camera is a bit slow, you have to wait several seconds between shots. The FE-180 doesn't use a mini usb connector like the older Olympus models (including the aforementioned FE-170)...

The right camera for me

 

I have owned my Olympus fe-180 for a couple years and I still love it. I can operate it one handed with either hand. In my line of work I have to take pictures of buildings. The employer's camera is an older Canon with a very small display screen...

Long lasting battery power, easy to use

Memory card is not one of the more common types
