OK, I have had this for a while, and its my first digital thats not been a canon. I purchased it for a few reasons as a pocket camera to suppliment my Powershot S2IS and my latest EOS 1000D DSLR which are both big. First, the size , Its great, very compact yet still offering a big display, second, good specs on paper, I still wanted a reasonable degree of zoom, and megapixle count. Finally, I liked the in hand build quality, it feels sturdy for the size. Over all, Its a decent camera, but its ...

I bought this camera in a hurry as I was leaving in a 4-month extended business trip. My original intention was was to buy a the Fujifilm J50, which I had researched, but bought the FE-340, which was ame price, in a last minute change of mind. I was pleasantly surprised to find how good my purchase was. I already have an Olympus C-750 camera so the menus were easy to find my way around and I was pleased to see this new camera is much more responsive and actually take the shot when I push ...

I just bought this camera as a pocket camera and find that it is awesome in some aspects of indoor shooting. I don't like the flash to come on every time you change a setting.

To put this review in perspective when I mark a 3 etc I'm realistic about how I think it compares to others in it's market (slimline/compact) etc...It seems EVERY camera gets a rating >3 for just about everything...and not every camera can be "better than average"...anyway that gripe out of my system... I think most people will use the editing software that came with the camera (which is very good for the novice to keen amateur) to adjust photos, otherwise the internal editing features are ...

OK, so to put this into perspective...I was after a simple P&S camera to compliment my SP-350, which tends to be a little too big to slot into my pocket if I'm off to a party or the pub. I chose this camera on the basis of: 1. Size 2. Price 3. It's an Olympus, so I would be familiar with setup, menus, etc On this basis, I'm very happy with it. I'm a bit frustrated with the lack of total manual control, but I was aware of this before I bought it. Just suffering some withdrawl symptoms ...
