Olympus FE-230 review

 

Ask me no questions and I'll tell you no lies. Better yet, ask me no questions, and I won't have to think too much about how to take pictures. That's the philosophy behind Olympus' FE-series of cameras. Rather than offering manual settings and...

Excellent indoor white balance; simple to use

Sluggish performance; soft images

If you really want a camera that does the thinking for you, this is a good choice. Otherwise, look for faster, more reliable models.

The FE-230 is a small, cheap compact with a good build quality and reasonable specification in a slim casing.

Perhaps not the best digital camera I have ever reviewed, but the Olympus FE-230 does offer pocket sized simplicity at a low price. In fact this is the cheapest pocket sized camera I can recall reviewing. It is well made and very easy to use.

Ease of use

Sharper towards the edges of photos - shutter delay

Style is held in high regard for digital compact users, a fact that Olympus has taken to heart with the new FE-230.
