Written on: 02/04/2010

This is a review about the Olympus FE-170, digital compact camera. It has 6mp resolution and that is enough for a compact. more MP only means more noise and noise is hard to remove.

this camera shines in bright light due to limited iso , but any how i am glad it doesn't handle high iso's for that i have my DSLR

What i like is the digital image stableliser and the power of pen;ight witch can be bought at almost any place in the world , and yes it can handle NIMH accu's batteries

it makes a… Read Full Review

Written on: 02/11/2009

Overall it's an easy little camera to use and fits in a pocket quite well. Image quality is pretty good in good lighting conditions but degrades quickly in less than favourable lighting.

Like other Olympus digitals I've used it absolutely eats batteries and you had better carry a few spare batteries with you at all times if you don't want to get caught out. If they could sort this problem out their digital cameras would be approaching the quality of their film cameras!… Read Full Review

“I have not been able to use my Olympus FE-170 camera...”

Written on: 09/05/2009 by Stanley Brand (1 review written)

I have not been able to use my Olympus FE-170 camera properly because the batteries run down much too quickly. I have tried all sorts of batteries, including re-chargeable ones and they do not last for more than three shots. I am fed up with it and will shortly be buying another make… Read Full Review

Avoid the Olympus FE-170 at all costs! There are far, far better cameras out there - and they are a lot cheaper!

Written on: 12/02/2008

The Olympus FE170 has a massive 6 Mega pixels and 3x optical zoom making it a good all rounder. As it records good film as well which is only limited by memory space. It is aimed at the beginners and those who want a fuss-free camera which is what attracted us to it. We must say that the image quality is also superb… Read Full Review
