Released August, 2009
The Pros:Runs on common AA batteries, easy to find and replace on the go - or carry extras and recharge later if planning ahead. Good macro and super macro mode. Photos are 314 dpi.
The Cons:No sound while recording video. Basic point and shoot - limited 3x optical zoom, simple electronics, no image stabilization, mediocre image quality. Cheaper looking.
Olympus' FE-26 is an entry-level point-and-shoot digital camera with similar features to the FE-25. Unlike the FE-25, the FE-26 cannot record AVI video, which is one major difference between the two, but the FE-26 has more shooting modes and a higher overall resolution and a larger LCD screen.

The FE-26 also has a lower price point, and focuses on being a budget camera. Its optical zoom is 3x, it has 20 preset shooting modes. It has ISO speeds up to 1600 and autofocus tracking, which both help to minimize blurring and enhance clarity in moving or low-light images. This camera operates on AA batteries, can accept either XD memory or microSD cards (with an included adapter), and comes in four different colours. One other feature is an effects mode that digitally renders images in different artistic stylings (e.g. pinhole).

Good macro and super macro mode.
accepts both microSD and xD memory cards, fairly common, affordable
No sound while recording video
basic point and shoot - limited 3x optical zoom, simple electronics, no image stabilization, mediocre image quality
runs on AA batteries rather than a higher capacity (and included) lithium-ion battery pack
Even new batteries on my camera last for 30 - 40 pictures, not using flash
