From the Manufacturer
Choosing the right compact digital camera has never been easier thanks to the new Olympus pocket-size FE-Series cameras that make capturing brilliant images as simple as point and shoot. The FE-350 delivers high-tech features without being bland -- this stylish, sleek and downright fun-to-use models makes everyone who has one the life of the party.
Featuring 8-megapixel resolution, Face Detection, Digital Image Stabilization, Perfect Shot Preview and three in-camera Help Guides, the FE-350 allows you to learn on the go and capture all of lifes special moments in brilliant detail at the touch of a button.
Stylus FE-350 Highlights
Powerful optics Great images start with great optics. The FE-350 has a 4x wide-angle lens (28-112mm equivalent; f2.7-5.4), which brings subjects closer when the zoom is used, and the wide-angle capability fits more of the subject in each frame -- capturing incredible scenic shots and large group portraits, even indoors!
Face Detection Face Detection tracks faces within the frame and automatically focuses (Face Detection AF) and optimizes exposure (Face Detection AE) for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures. Even if your subject is moving, the camera continuously tracks your subject's face without having to press the shutter button.
Digital Image Stabilization Mode and Edit Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) helps capture crisp, clear pictures. DIS freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject.
17 pre-set shooting modes The FE-350 offers numerous pre-set shooting modes, such as Sports, Fireworks and Night Scene with Portrait. The camera also delivers VGA-quality video and sound, which enable users to shoot and share movies on the big screen or on the Web.
Expression Edit Now you can really turn a frown upside down! This fun feature uses Face Detection technology to edit a subjects facial expression after the image is captured. Four different expressions can be previewed in a multi-frame window on the LCD, and users can select their favorite expression at the touch of a button.
Perfect Shot Preview All new FE cameras offer Perfect Shot Preview mode, which enables users to preview and select various photographic effects on a live, multi-frame window on the LCD before snapping the shot. This feature allows users to see precisely what the image will look like when adjustments are made, ensuring users are capturing the exact image they want. It is a great way for novice users to learn about the effects of different photography techniques, such as exposure compensation, white balance and metering.
Perfect Fix In-Camera Editing Life does not always go according to plan. Olympus helps by providing technology, which enables users to edit images in-camera after the photos have been captured. The FE-350 offers Red-Eye Fix and Lighting Fix.
Expanded Control and Easy Operation In some situations, you may want more creative control when composing images. The four new FE cameras offer Program Auto Mode. Located on the cameras mode dial, this option enables consumers to easily adjust ISO and white balance. Additionally, the new FE-Series cameras feature three in-camera Help Guides, making digital photography simple and fun for users of all ages and skill levels. A tutorial "shooting guide" educates users on tips for achieving specific effects, such as "shooting into backlight" and "brightening subjects." The shooting guide not only provides detailed descriptions for various situations and environments, it also automatically sets the camera with the touch of a button, making the transition from learning to taking great pictures instantaneous.
Olympus Master 2 software Olympus Master 2 software provides the ultimate in digital imaging management. An intuitive user interface makes downloading to your computer quick and simple, and images are easily organized by folders or albums and searchable by date in Calendar view. And with one-click editing tools, such as red-eye removal, images can be touched up before printing or emailing. Online support, templates, firmware upgrades and other user services are just a mouse-click away. Use the optional muvee Theater Pack to create professional quality slide shows and DVDs from your pictures using any of several built-in templates.

The wide-angle lens is great. It lets you fit more into a shot.
Pictures taken indoors are surprisingly inferior. I know the product description mentions picture stabalization, but I didn't see any sign of it. What I did see was that it's almost impossible to take a good picture indoors in regular indoor lighting conditions. I'm not talking about a few candles, but really normal indoor lighting with a bit of indirect sunlight and a lamp switched on. Without the flash, images come out blurry; and with the flash, items in the foreground are too bright while the background is too dark. This for me was a huge disappointment.
I have no complaints, however, about the pictures this camera takes outdoors. They are stunning, rivaling the ones I used to take with my old SLR, pictures I used to sell to newspapers. They're crisp, and their colors are sharp. This is a great camera for outdoor shots.
The large viewing screen is very nice and makes it easy to see what your picture will look like before you snap it.
The buttons are a bit difficult to figure out, not the worst I've seen, but also far from the best. I don't know why, but I also keep finding my camera has switched itself back to automatic settings after I've changed them to turn the flash off. If I could, I would reset the settings so the flash only turned on when I wanted to use it. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be an option.
All in all, this is a good camera for the price, with a few drawbacks.
There's one more thing I would like to mention: I highly recommend getting the 2GB Olympus XD card with this camera. It's expensive, but it holds 1,000 high quality 8MP pictures. The carrying case is nice and cushiony, but it's really tiny, basically a camera version of a cloth eye-glasses case. You can do without that, but you can't do without the XD card. The camera can't hold more than ten or so pictures without it.
I gave the camera a rating of four stars because I need to be able to create panoramas and the Olympus Master software provided with the camera doesn't do that great of a job stitching photos together. I have been getting better results from other photo software using the same pictures. So,the problem isn't all in the pictures I have been taking.
However, the camera yields excellent results in the photos and is easy to use. The camera is a steal for the price.
Only negative and its not really an issue but it uses a special Lithium battery that is included with the camera. So you can not just pop in a new set of AA/AAA. Got a spare for $12.00 on Amazon so that is covered.
so so, but the battery life is fantastic. If you take the time to read the manual, it can do loads of stuff. I, do not read the manual. Great for an inexpensive camera. I think a little better than the Koday Easy Share.
I bought it for my 13 year old daughter and she loves it and I don't worry about it too much because the price was so reasonable.
The only thing is that it takes a specific storage disc and I couldn't use the one that I had bought for it.
