I had an olympus camera before and love the brand name.
Glennice A. Brumfield
Most of the controls are within the menu system, which is easy to navigate, but it means a lot of button pushing to change the type of AF or shooting mode.

This digital camera takes great pictures and is easy to use.

I really love the Olympus FE-5020. It produces very acceptable images for this price range. Olympus is a brand you can rely upon. I also own an Olympus Stylus 500 which I bought 5 years ago and it has produced many great images.

I see that the two previous reviewers here have decided to return their cameras. Don't let that turn you off this camera. I am very fussy about picture quality. I was a professional photographer for 20 years before I left the business. Sure, there will always be cameras that take better pictures, but for this price range you won't go wrong.

The thing about this camera that really appealed to me is the 24mm lens. I also own a Panasonic FZ28 and a Sony HX1, and while they are both superb cameras, they only go down to 28mm on the wide end of the zoom. The Olympus FE-5020 nicely fills that gap. Another thing I love about the FE-5020 is it's compact size. It fits in my jacket pocket and will go with me everywhere. That's a bonus because you can't take photographs when the camera is sitting home because you didn't feel like lugging it around.

I don't find the controls too small. I'm a guy with large hands and have severe carpal tunnel syndrome but I manage nicely in navagating the camera settings.

It is true that you will probably need to manipulate the photographs on a computer. I believe that the beauty of digital photography is the ability to work on a computer rather than breathing the toxic fumes of a darkroom. To me, digital photography is 50% camera work and 50% computer enhancement. If you're not onboard with this, you may want to look elsewhere. The images I enhance on the compter are great. You can either use Picasa which is free or the Olympic Master software included with the camera.

My Canon SD850 got claimed by the sand dunes recently so I needed to replace it. I was looking for something with a wide angle lens at a decent price. After some research I decided to purchase the Olympus 5020 and here are my thoughts after some time with the camera:

First off the image resolution is decent, but the colors are very flat and don't seem very accurate. Sure you could fix this in post processing, but you shouldn't have to do that. The camera does seem to do well inside with flash as long as the subject is within a few feet. I actually probably could have dealt with the color issue, but the more I played with the camera the more I got annoyed by some other things. Olympus boasts about AF tracking and face recognition, but these modes do not operate simultaneously, you have to pick one or the other and at that neither seems to work well. Also, the stabilization that is a standard feature on most cameras doesn't operate all the time, but has to be selected as a separate shooting mode. One really odd thing that I couldn't figure out is when in the standard "P" mode the camera doesn't shoot in full 12mp, but only 5mp; I went through all the settings, but couldn't figure out why this was happening. Macro mode leaves a lot to be desired, the documentation claims 3cm, but the best I could do was about twice that distance. There's pretty much 0 user control; in some settings you can change the white balance and ISO, but that's it.

Most of the controls are within the menu system, which is easy to navigate, but it means a lot of button pushing to change the type of AF or shooting mode.

Great little camera for a very reasonable price plus free shipping from
Amazon. The 24mm wide angle lens makes point and shoot much easier, as it eliminates the hassle of having to back up to include everything or everyone in a close in shot. I would have prefered a written instruction manual as opposed to the supplied CD. The "quick start" instruction sheet is, I think, too brief.

I bought this camera after my daughter lost my Sony CyberShot. I was upset when she lost it because, not only was it expensive but I had really liked that camera. Yet, when replacing the Sony, I didn't want to pay that sizable amount again so I starting looking at other options. I liked the looks of the Olympus and the price was reasonable. It seemed to have the same features as the Sony and long ago I had an Olympus camera that had been a good quality camera.

This Olympus camera, I just love. It is as easy if not easier to use as the Sony. For the first "outing" with the Olympus, we went to Universal Studios in Burbank, California. The group consisted of five females and if you have ever been with a group of women that size or larger, then you know that we will all go in different directions all at once. So a lot of the pictures I took were on the run holding the camera up in the air. I would hold the camera at almost arm-length away and looking at the display to make sure my aim was decent enough to get the picture I wanted within the frame. Then I would just press the little button on top.

Even with running and jiggling the camera, all the picture came out clear. None of them were blurry or out of focus. And the color quality is vivid and crisp. It is amazing that such a little camera at a low to moderate price would take such great pictures. I actually think it is better than the Sony. It is the most user friendly, point and shoot camera I have ever owned. I highly recommend this camera to anyone looking for that style of digital camera
