Advantages: atractive, easy to use, good quality, small, good optical zoom, image stabilisation, video
Disadvantages: some settings are not saved when you switch modes or turn off

This camera has a lot of good points. It's small, attractive, very easy to use, and it's also pretty fast / responsive. Overall, I'm delighted with it. (And I'm generally hard to please). I chose this camera over newer models. And I am glad I did. I would ...

Brilliant Olympus FE-340

Advantages: Great Zoom, 8 fantastic scene modes, face detection, Good battery
Disadvantages: Can be slow taking photo, Flash can ruin pictures sometimes

This was a birthday present that I picked for myself and I don't regret it. The zoom is amazing, I can get a clear picture from about 100 metres away if not further. Before taking the picture, when zooming far it does look very blurry but it sorts its ...

Olympus C-8080 Wide Zoom

Advantages: Durable magnesium case, excellent lens.
Disadvantages: Auto focus sometimes fails on long distance shots, manual focus fiddly.
