Quotes from the Reviews - What People Say about:

Battery

Battery:
"Quality is decent but battery life is terrible"
_
"I am reading complaints about wanting a viewfinder at the same time batteries draining, but if you are taking pictures in a brightly lit area then why are you even bothering to use a flash?"
_
"That the camera uses AA batteries and never has to be on a charger is terrific."
_
"The lack of battery life is a huge problem."
_
"Reading buyer comments from a number of sites, it's clear that TERRIBLE battery life is a common issue."
_
"Previously I could get about ten flashes before the batterys failed."
_
"Quality is decent but battery life is terrible"
_
"The camera takes AA batteries so pretty easy to find."
_
"the camera takes great pics but the batteries are out of power much too fast."
_
"Battery life is, however, excellent so I rarely have to pop in new ones in any hurry."
_
"So, given my experience with previous digital cameras(one a Kodak 5.0 megapixel, the other a Vivitar model camera)which both DID actually EAT up their batteries, this one has had GOOD to Very good battery life, from my experiences(* only shot 2 xD cards through it, NOT a huge amount of experience with the camera, I will admit), so for the more circumspect, I would say that this Olympus camera offers very much, SATISFACTORY battery life, in comparison to other earlier digital cameras."

Price

Price:
"I paid $110 in May of 08 and I couldn't recommend it at that price."
_
"Please see past the perks and notice the simple problem that will waste your money!"
_
"Like any camera in this price range there will be some drawbacks, but for for a digital novice its ease of use and overall performance are tops."
_
"Great deal on price."
_
"All in all this camera is very well worth the price , and yes you can mount it on a tripod , and use it as a video camera with sound , to connect directly to your computer , and yes the cables are also provided !"
_
"I would trade it in a heartbeat for a camera half its price, because they almost all have white balance settings, good auto-focus, and ISO up to 1600."
_
"This FE-310 Model Camera, built by Olympus, a company in the photographic equipment industry that has always held up to a high degree of quality and durability, is easier to use than the 2 previous digital cameras that I've owned, and for the price(* especially at used prices) to get this 5X ZOOM LENSE power at that low price is a very good bargain."
_
"I got it cheap and took it to the bar last night and was happy."
