Review: Olympus FE-5010 digital camera

 

The Olympus FE-5010 takes good pictures and is easy to use. And if that's all you're looking for in a compact, then you'll probably be satisfied with this camera.

Taking pictures with the FE-5010 is straightforward. You choose from one of four basic modes: Program Auto, iAuto, Scene, or Movie. Then set the zoom and click the shutter. The FE-5010 takes it from there, employing technologies such as dual image...

Olympus Mju 5010

 

Flexible, easy to use and excellent picture quality

Some of the instructions are not clear in the manual, the covers on the battery compartment and USB compartments are very flimsy and do not feel hard-wearing.

Olympus Mju 5010

 

Excellent camera, although I am still trying to navigate the operating instructions - see below! I purchased the camera (reluctantly) to replace an identical but earlier model which got damaged while on holiday - the newer model is equally easy to use...

Detailed instructions are only available via the computer - I would much rather have had a 'paper copy' handbook to refer to.

Olympus Mju 5010

Olympus Mju 5010

 

just the job for a holiday camera - all the options you can hope for and more. HD movie capability with good image stabilization. Everything you might need for a still picture with its 14 million megapixels; loads of features, some silly but Automatic...

Battery only lasts a couple of days of if you are taking plenty of pix but as you can easily recharge either via a/c supply or by plugging straight into a laptop via USB port - this isn't an issue. All in all a great little camera.

Consumer review (newegg.com)

Great Olympus Camera!

 

Wonderful product, service, and delivery as I've become accustomed to when I go through Newegg! (Ordered this camera Monday morning, was taking pictures with it by lunch on Tuesday!)

12 megapixels ; Great zoom (both optical and digital) ; Light and slim design ; Excellent owner's guide and software included ; Battery charger (and battery of course) included were a definite plus

no viewfinder (advertised as such, just used to having one on other cameras I've had) ; Battery length is OK, but get a backup for long trips
