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...
