The Olympus FE-120

So if you are honing your photographic skills on the British countryside you will be able to capture close up every petal and leaf.
For new photographers the smart FE-120 can predict the ideal exposure for your picture taking scenarios. Or for tailor made image taking choose from 16 scene modes to suit your scenario including ‘Portrait’, ‘Candle light’ and ‘Night scene’. The FE-120 also records videos so you can make movie memories too.
Although it’s packed with special functions there’s no need to worry about fiddling around with complicated controls. The FE-120 is simple to use with menus clearly displayed and simple button functions. The camera also takes standard or rechargeable AA batteries.
