Olympus FE-20 digital camera review

 

Why Buy the Olympus FE-20? If you are looking for a digital camera to slip into a pocket and is easy to use then the FE-20 is one to consider. It is a fair bit cheaper than most pocket cameras too. Image Quality

Olympus FE-20

 

The Olympus FE-20 is one of the cheaper pocket cameras. It has 8 megapixels and a 3x optical zoom lens. This camera is very easy to operate too. As you would expect picture quality is good rather than excellent, but the FE-20 is able to handle most...

Ease of use - design is good for a cheaper camera

Slow to turn on - slow to take photos

This camera does exactly what it sets out to do. It delivers decent snapshots at a reasonable price. It is unfussy both in design and ease of use. The one issue I have with it is it is slow to start up and slow to take a picture.

Olympus X-15/FE-20

 

It is aesthetically pleasing and very light, along with being relatively easy to use

Awful image quality and tacky build, felt like it could break easily and definitely wasn't worth the money

Olympus X-15/FE-20

 

I have bought this camera for two separate people and i think for the neatness of size and the ease of use it is ideal for a day to day camera. It is fairly intuitive and certainly small enough to put in a handbag or pocket just in case there is...

Limited zoom but for the price of it i don't think you can expect that much more.

Olympus X-15/FE-20

 

It was very easy to use and it is a very nice colour! It had an editing system which was great and it had a number of settings including macro mode which is useful. It takes great pictures and the zoom is great. It can also take films which is good.

Overall it was a very good camera but there wasn't any playback volume for the videos which was a shame. It says in the instruction manual that there was audio so I tried to fix it but it still didn't work.

Great size. Fits in a pocket without any problem. Picture quality is excellent as are the controls. I would recommend this camera without hesitation.

None, so far.
