Olympus FE-340 Review

Review Summary
Reader Score: 9.00 (out of 10)
Review (Summary): "The Olympus FE-340 is the current mid-range model of the entry-level FE line of digital cameras from Olympus. The FE-340 is an 8 megapixel camera, with a 5x optical zoom, 2.7-inch LCD, and a sturdy, slim metal body. With a 5x zoom in a slim body at a budget price, the FE-340 has been building interest among buyers looking for something that breaks the "3x zoom" mold without breaking the bank.

... f you are looking for a well built, slim, entry-level camera that's easy to use, the FE-340 makes a good choice. However, the average image quality and smeared flash photos make this camera fall short of perfection. ..."

Review (Summary): "Joining in the trend to re-energize the staid, seemingly all-silver world of digital cameras, the Olympus FE-340 offers a fun selection of body colors (pink, red, and blue), though you can also choose more conservative silver and black styles if that's more to your liking. But the Olympus FE-340 is more than just colorful fun, the camera also offers 5x optical zoom, 8.0 megapixels, Face Detection, Smile Shot, Digital Image Stabilization, and a large LCD screen. ...

... . Despite its slightly sluggish cycle times and so-so performance in terms of image noise, the Olympus FE-340 performed fairly well overall. General color and exposure are about right and pleasing, and the camera seems to handle the normal range of lighting and exposure conditions well. ..."

Review (Summary): "The FE-340 is an 8.0-megapixel, 5x zoom compact camera with a 2.7-inch, 230k monitor. It has an aluminum body and is available in a range of colors including black, grey, silver and the rather fabulous metallic pink of my review sample (and boy did I get some funny looks while testing it!). ...

... 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. ..."
