Olympus FE-3010 review

 

What's worse in a sub-$130 camera: slow performance or mediocre photo quality? With the Olympus FE-3010 you don't have to decide because you get both. All joking aside, for me, it's about performance, and more specifically shutter lag, as cameras...

Nice design, build quality; very good color, white balance.

Slow performance; soft photos.

The Olympus FE-3010 is a good-looking ultracompact camera that takes pictures--eventually.

Review Of The Olympus FE-3010 Camera

 

The menu system of the FE3010 is attractive and easy to use. The sub-menus drop down into more detailed lists which make it easier, not that the 3010 has much to offer. The FE 3010 continues to use the xD cards like in its older models, so the memory...

Deadly design; tough in build; vivid colors; good white balance; not much in weight; not a complicated device to use; not at all expensive

Images are not sharp; sloppy in performance

The mild way of putting this would be; this camera is something that you've got to steer clear of. The 12 megapixel resolution in the camera is not helping any manner. If you need to click pictures of mountains and other such motionless land-scapes or...

OLYMPUS FE-3010 Orange 12.0 MP 2.7" 230K LCD 3X Optical Zoom Digital Camera

 

Slim, lightweight design. Easy-to-navigate menus with easy-to-press buttons

Most pictures shot with flash turn out grainy, even while shooting in higher resolutions, in action setting.Those without flash often turn out blurry

Not worth the price even on Shellshocker

 

I bought this for my girlfriends graduation present, well that was a waste as her 3 and a half year old camera took WAY better pictures, and was not even a big ticket item.

It took pictures and was compatible with MicroSD cards, lots of different settings

Every picture i took with this camera came out blurry no matter what i did it just did not take good pictures ; 1 dead pixel as well ; There are many other cameras out there that will take much better pictures at this price range

Nice deal

 

Pics are very good Great features softwear is excellent,Batteries last a very long time im going on 3rd day since i charged it and still shows good life. as usual All ahil the cosmic EGG shell shockers make you even better Eggtopuss!

i bought this as Shell Shocker deal, not disapointed in any way, I was a Canon man forever, but this cam has 2x megapixels and an extra zoom option my powershot dosnt have at 1\2 price

Canona use AA battaries, this uses a different battery, but came with charger, so i bought an extra battery and a 2 Gig mem card add 30 $ to get me vacation\roadtrip ready still less than my canon

Dont be fooled. This is a nice camera!

 

No this is a $1000 digital camera that has a but for what it's worth I can say though I got more then I paid for. Great deal and unique color... my camera will proabably never get mixed up with others.

Huge potential for me... the ablity to us a micro SD card (it takes my 8gb no problem) Cool settings for different picture styles and sizes, The ablility to record video, Rechargeable battery. Small but camera case (this camera is not light junk)

It wasn't free? LOL. I think the biggest bummer but, i did kinda know that is you cant plug the camera in and charge the battery while using the wall adapter. you have to remove the battery to charge. I might just buy another battery

Look in the manual bag friend

 

For $70 shipped, a 12 MP camera , yes no sound playback, but wttff there's sound to the AVIs, what more do you need? lol.

This camera was purchased during the recent shellshocker as well. There is a memory card in it, you have to look in the plastic bag the manual comes in, it's taped to the back of the manual. I know quirky place to put it, but it is indeed there ;...

Great Compact Camera

 

Cheap. Bought mine as a replacementfor an FE 45 which was broken. We are very happy with this camera. Of course I realize some hi-tech pros may noy be happy with this camera ; But for an all around family camera, it's a great buy
