Your first car may have been an old heap and your first place more a hovel than a home, but there is no reason for your first camera not to live up to expectation if you purchase an Olympus FE-120.
This first rate camera for beginners is packed full of the kind of features your more experienced digital camera using friends will be impressed by. Its 6.0 mega pixel resolution makes sure pictures have pinpoint clarity even while the camera gets close up with a 3x zoom lens. Its Super Macro technology allows even the tiniest detail to be captured up close, from just 2cms away. 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.
