Comments about Olympus FE-310 Digital Camera (Silver):

Nice camera but the LCD screen cracked the first month. This camera was kept in a camera case and never dropped or damaged in any way. I read that this is an issue and the LCD can crack in cold weather. Don't leave in your vehicle overnight if you live north of the equator in the winter time.

Comments about Olympus FE-310 Digital Camera (Silver):

I got this camera for our visitor from Romania. She was in the U.S. for 10 days and took about 900 pictures. Her pictures started out quite good and got better all the time. She loves her camera and got some great pictures in Minnesota and Chicago. Now she sends me pictures from Romania.

The 5X optical zoom is a great advantage. Coupled with the 8 Mega Pixel CCD this is a great camera. This one was for my son and his wife and i am thinking of getting one for myself as a compliment to my Nikon 8700. There are many time I would like to stick a compact digital in my pocket and the Olympus fills the bill
