Olympus's ever-growing FE range has a tradition of transferring sleek design and advanced features to the price-conscious consumer – a trend continued in the 7MP FE-240.

Olympus FE-240

 

The Olympus FE-240 is an inexpensive, pocket sized digital camera. Another advantage it has over other cameras with a similar specification is its longer than standard zoom lens.

Longer zoom on a pocket sized camera ; Guide to picture taking

Picture quality ; Shutter lag

"The Olympus FE-240 is a seven megapixel, pocket sized digital camera. The feature that makes it different to many other digital cameras of this type is the fact it has a longer than standard 5x optical zoom lens."

Olympus FE-240 review

 

Sometimes you just don't want to agonize over whether you should choose the soup or the salad; the Coke or the Pepsi; the PC or the Mac. Olympus realizes just how hard some choices can be, which is why it's made the FE series of digital cameras....

Decent pictures; small and light.

Very slow performance; no manual settings.

The Olympus FE-240 is slow and doesn't have any manual settings, but at least it takes good pictures.

Decent pictures ; Small and light

Very slow performance ; No manual settings

Despite the Olympus FE-240's sluggish performance and almost complete lack of manual settings, it's still a pretty good camera for new users. If you simply want to take decent photos and don't want to fiddle around with a lot of menus and buttons, it's...

Olympus FE-240 Digital Camera Full Review

 

The Olympus FE-240 is another 7.1 megapixel model in Olympus' latest line-up of four digital cameras in the FE line.

5x optical zoom ; Slim, metal body ; Good construction

Grainy LCD (low pixel count) ; Slow card access times ; Not a speed demon

If you have your eye on a new Olympus FE model and have a bit more to spend than you would on the FE-230, I would point you towards the FE-240, with its 5x optical zoom.  They're essentially identical cameras, except for the lens.  While camera speed...
