Olympus FE-5020


$179.00 Released August, 2009

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Offers a higher level of optical zoom than all compact cameras in the same price segment (5x). Also offers a wide angle lens than all compact cameras in the same price segment. Good quality zoom, relatively distortion free, minimal chromatic aberration at the corners.

The Cons:Limited range of features, just the basics. Sluggish menu performance, takes a long time to change settings or view photos, can get frustrating. Noise issue in pictures, even at low ISO settings.

Olympus' FE-5020 is a mid-range point-and-shoot digital camera with very similar features to the FE-5010. The only differences are that the FE-5020 has a wide-angle lens and autofocus tracking which the FE-5010 does not have, but the FE-5020 lacks the FE-5010's shake sensor stabilizer and "smile shot" mode.
