Comments about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera (Silver):

This is a great camera to get started on. The extremely small size makes it perfect to slip into a pocket and take wherever you go. It takes good pictures as well as videos. Very easy to use as well. The only problem is that it does not take clear pictures in low light conditions. A good choice for someone who wants a nice camera for not a lot of money.
