Editor's Review

Olympus' FE 5010 packs a ton of zoom power into a conveniently small package. Outfitted with a surprisingly powerful 5x optical zoom with Dual Image Stabilization and 10-megapixel resolution, the FE 5010 is sure to draw attention. Features like Smile Shot, Advanced Face Detection and automated shooting modes makes sure that nothing ever comes out blurry or darkened. A 2.7-inch LCD monitor makes it easier to take and review your photos.

I LUVVVVVVV My New Camera! (TMeyer — 01/30/2010)
Before this camera I had purchashed the first Sony Cybershot DSC T1. For the amount I paid for the Sony, I expected a much better experience with my photos. I was highly disappointed. My photos taken outside in daylight turned out okay most of the time, but more often than not they were blurry - especially if taken indoors or in darker settings. I would have to tell my children not to move, while I tried not to move and still 3 out of 5 wouldn't turn out. When I purchased my Olympus, after I charged it I started snapping photos of my children while 'walking' into the kitchen and they came out perfect! I snapped some photos of our family room without lights on and it turned out perfect. I was so impressed with that I went into my daughters room, closed the door, turned off all lights and snapped a photo - it came out perfect - you couldn't tell in the least there were no lights on. I am verrrryyyyyy happy with my camera! Although, I do need to read more into the manual to see if there are different settings to elimate the pause when recording the image so I can get my son who likes to cover his face when I try to get a photo. :)

I'm returning it (Laurie — 07/02/2009)

I bought the FE 5010 while on vacation because our old camera started taking very blurry shots (it was about 8 yrs. old and we were planning on replacing it soon anyway). I took over 100 pics without reading the manual cover to cover (I briefly scanned it) and many of the pics didn't come out well at all (blurry, dark, etc). I figured it was because of my lack of knowledge about the camera so I came home from vacation and read the manual in depth. I'd like to think I'm a fairly intelligent person but this manual was confusing and was certainly not "user friendly." I set the modes to what I believed would give me better shots and I began experimenting. The pics didn't come out much better than before reading the manual. This camera is new to the market and I feel that it has great features but isn't equipped to take beautiful, clear shots. Luckily the store I purchased it from said I could return it within 30 days if I was not happy with it. I'm going to that store today to make the return.
