Soild built camera
Strengths: Large LCD, small size, easy to use
This camera is solid built with a lot features. The size is small and can be easily carry. The LCD is large enough for reviewing photos. It can be connected with a PC without having software installed and can be used as an external storage.

This is a fine camera for the price.
Strengths: Solid built, large LCD, easy to use
Weakness: no view finder
Bought this as a gift and people liked it. Pictures look good. Colors look real. The large LCD is attractive at this price range. It is a better buy than its previous generations FE-110, FE-120.

OK camera if you get it at lower costs.
Strengths: Takes good pictures in outdoor situations with good light. LCD screen nice size for pocket camera. Easy to use - 9 yr old learned point & shot in about an hour (even learned to view and delete.
Weakness: Pictures seem dark or distorted when taking in a low light situation. Not really pocket size but still ok (light weight)
I purchased this camera for under 100.00 on sale. It is a decent camera if you want an extra one around. I own a larger Oly camera and just wanted one the kids or I could easily take on trips. Outdoor pictures turn out great. Even cropped and enlarged to 8X10, the pictures are nice. The indoor pictures are not as crisp and seem darker. (Probably due to the size of the lens)Action (sports) mode seems to take the best picture because pictures will blur if someone is moving a little. All in all, I am happy with the purchase because I bought it knowing it would not perform as well as my larger camera. However, for the price, my kids can use it without trouble and I will not lose a lot of money if something happens to it.

Get much more bang for your buck elsewhere
Strengths: PictBridge compatible 6.0 MP ccd
Weakness: Slightly bulky 2.5" LCD is on the small side only 4x digital zoom
This is a camera I'd willingly pay around 75 bucks for, just to have as a spare. However, at double that & up, it's no bargain. Shutter speed is slow, image stabilization is nonexistent. Highly recommend Sony CyberShot instead.

Nice little camera
Strengths: Inexpensive. Good features. Easy to work with.
Weakness: Runs out of batteries too fast. Not the best LCD screen picture quality. Not my personal best choice camera
For 125$ this is definitely a nice camera, if you are looking to get a low-mid end camera. Specifications are decent, but not the best. Print quality of pictures are decent. I dont like the LCD screen that much.
On the whole nice camera and i would rate 3.75/5

Strengths: Use standard AA batteries, big screen (for the price), craddle free, light
Weakness: No sound record!, xD cards (instead i.e. SD), no view finder.
We will return it for a refund, may be we will select a Cannon or Casio.
Took me a while to figure out that the lack of sounds for the clips.

Great price for an Olympus Camera but ....
Strengths: Great price for something to snap pictures and storage on the internal memory. Silver color looks beautiful.
Weakness: The picture quality is "grainy" when taken under low light. You see dots and missing pixels. Taking a picture requires a 1-2 second pause before it takes the picture.
The pictures on the LCD is not what you get when you transfer them to the computer. The quality appears to degraded.
The Olympus picture transfer program is not user friendly. Didn't know at times if the pictures really transferred.
You have to buy the expensive xD card for picture memory. That's more money spent for a low end camera.
For the extra money, why not just get a Panasonic or Canon.
I returned my camera to the store. Don't waste your time or money on this one.

considering the price this camera's nice
Strengths: very user friendly, takes great outdoor pictures, video recording outdoors was clearer than I expected
Weakness: slow shutter speed, indoor pics a little dark
I bought this camera for $139 on sale found a 1Gb xd memory card to 34.99 so for about $175 I now have a great camera and 700 pictures to take. Cant beat all of that and 6.4 megapixels.
