Pros sharp portrait, easy to use, good flash.
Cons Extremely slow focus in dim lighting; poor documentation on exporting Images
Summary This is my second digital camera; my first is a Canon S2 IS which I love but it is too bulky to fit in my shirt pocket, so I purchased this Olympus. The FE-120 is very simple to use, I started using after a 1-minute quickly scan through the "quick start" pamphlet. The camera does not have much MANUAL functions other than choosing resolution level and on-off-auto flash.
I tested it in various lighting, in bright lighting everything feels "normal", but in dim lighting; two 100watt incandescent bulbs lited 12x12 room; surprise...after you press the shooting button fully, it takes 3 seconds for the camera to acquire focus and then flash. So you'll have to countdown from 5,4, 3-snap,2,1,flash. to keep your objects holding their posture. Hopefully your objects could hold still that long.
The resulting pictures are excellent though, at widest focus and default "High-Quality" setting, it's even better than the Canon S2IS at it's wide shots. At "Super HQ", it's gets better still. The Flash is very good at under 13 feet. No red-eye reduction though.
The bundled software is good for transferring images from camera and keeps images sorted by date, for editing...you'll need to pay for the upgrade. It took me almost an hour to figure out how to export the images as JPG so that I could use other software to edit. The user-manual is very weak on this. Tip; for those who want to export their images; use the Olympus Master, choose backup images, backup to media, choose your target folder, start backup. Looks easy now, but try figuring that out on your own...
Have not tried the panoramic views and movie functions, no comment on these.
Bottom line, if your objects are adults and can hold still for 5 seconds in dim lighting, it's excellent. Outdoors, bright lighting, good rating.
Pros Very durable and compact design
Cons Lacks professional features
Summary I've had this camera for over a year and really love it as an all-around picture taker. It takes great shots and has a variety of preset optiosn. The downsides - it lacks adjustable professional settings and is slow with a 1GB high speed chip. On a recent cruise, another downside showed itself - lack of a viewfinder and inability to see the LCD in bright light. Most of my pictures I took without even looking at the camera. Overall, it's a good entry level camera.
Pros Light, Saves Batteries and takes those vivid pic that u always want
Cons It dictakes to u and doesn't really allow u to do what u want
Summary I love this camera. it was my second. My first camera the Polariod PCDC 5070 did not possess optical zoom so as u can guess this camera was a immediate breathtaker. This camera is for anybody out there who needs wonderful pic, is not a professional photographer and who's has no income and has to save and buy like I did.
Pros Excellent picture quality; Good Zoom; Great Close-Up Pictures
Cons Very Slow Auto Focus in Dim/Dark areas
Summary This was my second camera I have purchased prior to the Kodak EasyShare C300. Overall, this is a great camera. There are many great features about this camera. First off, I like to get close to my subjects in photos. You can be only an inch away from what you're photographing with still great picture quality. The flash will not bleed the pictures, so you can get good photos is no lighting. The camera contains many settings for different enviornments. The only problem with this camera is long time between when you click the button and it actually takes the picture. This wait extremely long if the camera is trying to auto focus when there is little light. Other than this one issue, the camera has great functionality and takes good pictures.
