Intelligent Auto + Shadow Adjustment Technology, AF Tracking and many other great features put picture-taking magic right in your hands.

AF Tracking.
The camera automatically tracks the movements of frequently-moving subjects—kids and pets, for instance—and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so that they’re captuRed clearly and sharply with ease.

Intelligent Auto + Shadow Adjustment.
The two technologies combine to identify the type of scene you’re going after—for instance, Portraits, Landscapes, Night + Portraits, Macro or Sport—and automatically adjusts the camera’s setting to achieve the best results possible.

Advanced Face Detection.
The camera can track up to 16 faces in one shot and then automatically sets the focus and exposure to optimize the clarity of every face in the frame.

Digital Image Stabilization.
With higher ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds, you can capture sharp, blur-free images, even when your subject is on the move.

Magic Filter.
Get creative with artistic filter effects such as Pop Art, Pinhole or Wedding.

Comments about Olympus Olympus FE-26 Digital Camera (Silver):

Drains batteries way too fast. Directions say to minimize this, limit the use of holding the shutter button half-way down. Well, that's how you focus it! Very disappointed and will probably just give it away. This camera will most likely not have enough juice to function when you need it.

Comments about Olympus Olympus FE-26 Digital Camera (Silver):

this camera has alot of features and 12mp. i especially like the +- exp feature it gives you a preview window of all the ev +- values from 0 to +-1.7. the face recognition is good as well as all the scene modes. whats really impressive is iso's from 80 to 1600. my nikon dslr starts at iso 200. there are 2 video modes 15fps or 30fps BUT NO SOUND. this is the only negative i found with the camera. but for [$] i guess you can't complain. i teach photography and shoot weddings. this is an awesome little pocket camera.
