Olympus FE-5010 Highlights
Intelligent Auto Thinks for You
While the new FE-5010 cannot file your income tax return for you, it can perform numerous challenging tasks and is as smart as it looks. Thanks to Intelligent Auto, the FE-5010 automatically identifies the scene you are capturing (Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro, Sports) and automatically adjust the camera’s settings to capture the best quality results.
In Control with Pre-Set Shooting Modes
If you do not want Intelligent Auto to make the decisions for you, the new FE-5010 offers numerous pre-set Shooting Modes, such as Sports, Fireworks and Night + Portrait. The camera also offers VGA-quality video and audio, which enables users to shoot and share movies on their TV or on the Web. Plus, with the Olympus Master 2.0 software, you can easily upload your movies to YouTube to share them with the world. The FE-5010 also features Smile Shot, which tracks your subject’s face to detect a smile and automatically fires off three consecutive shots so you never miss that perfect smile. This feature is great for parents trying to capture hard-to-predict baby smiles. The FE-5010 offers 18 Shooting Modes. This includes three for underwater shooting with the camera’s optional housing.
Image Stabilization for Virtually Blur-Free Photos
Dual Image Stabilization on the FE-5010 adds mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization to Digital Image Stabilization to provide one powerful two-in-one anti-blur solution for capturing great images even if the photographer or the subject is moving. Olympus' mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization keeps images sharp by adjusting the image sensor to compensate for camera movement, which often occurs in low-light conditions when shutter speeds are slower. By combining the two technologies, FE-5010 users are able to take crystal clear images in virtually any shooting situation.
Advanced Face Detection
Advanced 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. The FE series cameras can detect up to 16 individual faces in one shot.
Perfect Fix In-Camera Editing
The FE-5010 camera offers Red-Eye Fix and Lighting Fix, plus in-camera editing features such as resizing and cropping, which enable photographers to edit images after a photo has been captured.
All Olympus digital point-and-shoot cameras accept xD-Picture Card media. Starting with products available in August 2008, they also accept microSD memory cards to capture images. The new FE series cameras offer the flexibility to use either xD-Picture Card or microSD memory cards, which is just one more advantage of Olympus point-and-shoot cameras.
Easy Operation and Help Guides
The new FE series cameras feature enhanced In-Camera Help Guides that make digital photography simple and fun for users of all ages and skill levels. In addition to the Help Guide that displays a brief description of camera settings and features on the LCD, all three cameras allow consumers to easily adjust ISO and white balance settings using the Program Auto mode. Additionally, Exposure Compensation enables users to preview and select various exposure effects on a live, multi-frame window on the LCD before snapping the shot. This smart feature allows users to see precisely what the image will look like when adjustments are made, ensuring they are capturing the exact image desired. Program Auto and Exposure Compensation are great modes that enable novice users to get results like the pros while learning about the effects of different photography techniques.
TruePic III Image Processor
The FE-5010 features Olympus’ exclusive TruePic III Image Processor, which was developed for the demanding performance of professional Digital SLR (single lens reflex) cameras. Olympus’ enhanced TruePic III Image Processor produces crystal-clear photos using all the pixel information for each image to deliver superior picture quality with more accurate colors, true-to-life flesh tones and faster processing speeds. TruePic III also captures crisp, clear images at high ISO settings.
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. A direct link makes uploading your images and videos to YouTube easier than ever. Additionally, 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. Additionally, create scrapbooks, greeting cards and other fun prints using the optional ArcSoft Print Creations plug-in.

Dec 2009 update - We had an issue with the lens, but it was still under warranty and Olympus fixed it quickly. I wish it was a little faster at taking pictures, but maybe I haven't set some setting.
The problem didn't develop until after we'd had the camera a few weeks - and the on-line return policy is 14 days at Adorama (Amazon partner). And also note that if you chose free shipping and return within 14 days, you now get to pay the original shipping cost plus that of sending it back. Sometimes on-line isn't the best way to buy after all I guess.
I have contacted Olympus - they'll let me send it in at my expense and they'll decide if they'll fix it for free or not. Not quite the experience I'd hoped for two weeks after buying a new camera.
This problem is a bummer, but otherwise the camera works great for what I wanted.
Unfortunately my experience with this camera was unlike my 2 previous olympus purchases. It may be that the camera I received was defective because the camera has a whole list of problems which is why I am returning it. The camera locks in picture mode and I have to take out the battery and restart. The camera will often, but not always not allow me to view the pictures I just took when I push the play button. Finally, when the camera would actually take pictures and allow me to see them the color and quality was so/so at best.
Again I am not saying Olympus is a bad company, I actually had great experiences with them in the past; however, I would not recommend this camera based on my experience with it.
