Olympus FE-26

 

Olympus FE-26 is a brand new addition to its FE Series. Yes, I am talking about the FE series by Olympus which is known for advanced and user friendly features packed together at affordable price. And this makes FE series by Olympus a hot favourite in...

Great camera for the price

 

Overall the best camera that we have ever owned. At times you can tell its a fairly entry level point and click, with its oh so slightly cheap feeling, but for the money, you absolutely cant go wrong.

Love the picture quality, ease of use, the lcd is awesome

Mid lighting causes me focus problems at times

XD card limited to 2GB storage?

 

I have a number of Micro Sd and SD high capacity cards and now I have to buy an XD card that costs as much for a 2GB card as the 8 GB card class 6 I just bought. I hate proprietary cards make you pay more and get less small capacity

Nice compact package, big screen, I figured the other reviews can cover the quality and features fo the camera

You are forced to use XD cards and they are only available with a max size of 2 GB! this is a big deal breaker for me. I just bought 2 ea 8GB micro SD cards and they were the same price each as the tiny 2 GB card

Caution - no sound

 

This camera's fine for my needs, but be careful if you think you can record movies. You will be sorely disappointed as the video capture does not have audio.

Nice form factor, pics of very good quality

Video mode does NOT record sound

Good Camera for the price

 

I never expected a camera that i bought for $68 to have every feature I wanted but for the price it is a great buy! I can live with the silent video because in the end it is not a camcorder and we cannot expect miracles from a budget product. I...

12 Megapixels result in a nice quality photos and especially for the price! Had an older Olympus camera with 4 megapixels and it still runs pretty well, I have good faith in this brand and have had good results. The camera is super light and pretty...

Can record video, but without sound it is pretty pointless. Besides that cant find much wrong with it

What do you expect for under $100?

 

I have to laugh at those that give this cam a poor rating, because what do you expect for this price? This especially counts for the review by the guy who bought it as a cheap gift and expected it to perform miracles - GIVE ME A BREAK, PAL. I'm glad...

Super light, super easy to use. Menu system one of the best I've seen as it has nice friendly icons with on-screen use. Battery door is spring-loaded (very cool). You'll be up and running in minutes. Color representation is spot-on. Quiet operation

Shutter button not round. Typical to this price range, it only likes sunny outdoor shots. Typical to point-and-shoot Olympus brand, the best shooting modes are DIS and Sport, all others are worthless

out the door!

 

can't think of one, although initially thought that a price for 12mpx Olympus would be a decent deal

its unbelievable that a such poor quality camera in all aspects can be marketed under the Olympus brand. I was going to give to someone, but after spending about 30 min with it, I cannot think of a person that I can give this as a gift, because they...

Pretty Good

 

Very good camera, pictures some in fast, very nice resolution and the screen looks beautiful. Good and cheap camera. 12MP's for under a $100 bucks? DEAL

None so far

The Best Point n' Shoot I've ever owned!

 

I bought this camera right after I accidentally broke my Panasonic, and wow, what a great value! Compared to my Panasonic, this camera is truly superior. 12 megapixels, adjustable ISO, white balance, file size, etc. I was disappointed with the zoom,...

Easy to Use, Excellent Picture Quality, Lightweight

Short Battery Life, Bad in Low Light
