Olympus FE-340

 

Is the top model in Olympus' FE range one of the good ones?

Olympus FE-340

 

The 8 megapixel Olympus FE-340 has a longer than standard 5x optical zoom lens. This pocket sized camera performed well in all my tests and I would recommend it to someone who is looking for a less expensive pocket camera.

Extra zoom on a pocket camera - simple and easy to use - overall picture quality

Nothing really stands out

I really like the FE-340. Picture quality is good and it also scores well for ease of use. It is small enough to fit into a pocket and gives you a bit of extra zoom over most smaller compacts. Excellent value for money.

Olympus FE-340 Digital Camera - Express Review - The Imaging Resource!

 

Joining in the trend to re-energize the staid, seemingly all-silver world of digital cameras, the Olympus FE-340 offers a fun selection of body colors (pink, red, and blue), though you can also choose more conservative silver and black styles if that's...

Small, slim size ; 5x optical zoom ; Enjoyable to use ; Light weight ; Smile Shot and Face Detection for good, in-focus pictures of kids ; Good selection of useful preset shooting modes ; Good overall color ; Large 2.7-inch LCD is usable in very bright...

High lens distortion at full wide angle ; Distracting image noise at ISOs 400 and up ; Some blurring in corners at both zoom settings, especially the lower left corner ; Slightly soft detail definition overall ; Slow shot-to-shot times

With an initial MSRP of US$199.99, the Olympus FE-340 is an excellent deal. You get a lot of resolution and a good zoom lens, plus a nice array of helpful exposure modes and creative options. The available exposure modes also accommodate a wide range...

Olympus FE340

 

In the slew of cameras released by Olympus this year, there's the FE340: 8 megapixels with 5X optical zoom. It also features Perfect Shot Preview, a high range of ISO sensitivities and playback image editing. Is it worth it to pick up the Olympus...

Compact design available in five colors and above average 5X zoom ; Easy to use - few buttons and built-in help ; LCD viewable in various conditions (Especially with backlight boost) ; Perfect Shot Preview ; Hands-free smile detection automatically...

No manual controls at all ; Lacks 'real' image stabilization ; Below average battery life ; Burst mode is missing ; Slow overall performance; poor low-light focusing ; Plastic tripod mount, no USB 2.0 High-speed

The Olympus FE340 is a simple 8 megapixel camera for casual point-and-shoot purposes. The camera is powered by a lithium-ion battery (thus the thin design) and packs more zoom than you'll typically find on a camera like this. That'll be 5X optical...
