This was the worst camera that we saw in 2009 and it seems like Olympus has already abandoned it and moved on to the FE-46. The FE-45's biggest problem was its atrocious battery life—it cut through a fresh set of Duracell AA alkaline batteries in 12 minutes when we tested it. That's unacceptable by itself, and when you toss in a clumsy interface and mediocre pictures, it adds up to the worst camera of the year. Fortunately, this camera is no longer widely available, but steer clear it you do see it. Try the Canon SD1200 instead.
