Olympus FE-200

 

An absolute beginners model with a decent specs list

A wide-angle lens with5x optical zoom gives this appeal,but its basic build may put someoff. A good choice for newcomers

The 6-megapixel Olympus FE-200 is an entry-level compact that combines point-and-shoot simplicity with a zoom range to give it that little bit extra

Olympus FE-200 review

 

If a camera comes with the highest price tag in its product line, you'd think it would be the best. The Olympus FE-200, however, proves otherwise. Although it boasts the nicest lens and costs more than other FE-series cameras, this 6-megapixel shooter...

Decent lens; small body.

Poor performance; no white balance controls; exposure problems.

This extremely sluggish shooter is a poor choice when compared to less expensive alternatives.

Decent lens ; Small body

Poor performance ; No white balance controls ; Exposure problems

While the Olympus FE-200 should be the most impressive member of the FE-series, its terrible performance places it far behind the FE-180 and FE-190. Combined with a price that's higher than most budget cameras, the FE-200 just doesn't cut it. If you're...

For a wider view, reach for the Olympus FE-200. This ultra-compact, metal clad camera features an impressive 5x zoom lens that stretches from wide-angle - great for landscapes - all the way to telephoto. So, no matter where the photographers are, they...
