Olympus FE-340 Reviews

DPInterface reviews the Olympus FE-340 and writes;
“Bottom line is, the Olympus FE340 is a very much automatic mode camera which can take some decently good shots straight out of the box BUT is not for the impatient or for snapping pets, kids, sports or anything that’s moving quickly. ”

TrustedReviews reviews the Olympus FE-340 and writes;
“The build quality is good, and the LCD monitor is outstanding, but the styling is awkward and ungainly and the handling could be better. Low-light performance is below average, but the camera is redeemed somewhat by good image quality.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

ImagingResource reviews the Olympus FE-340 and writes;
“Its 8.0-megapixel CCD captures fairly high resolution images, with good overall detail, though finer details are a bit on the soft side. Our sample also produced soft images in the lower left corner… All in all, not a bad camera. ”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Olympus FE-340 and writes;
“I was pleased with our indoor quality results. The flash was able to provide good exposure of the subject, without trying to illuminate the background. The colors and skin tones look very natural. Portrait mode combined with Face Detection Technology makes shooting portraits a breeze. ”
