From the Manufacturer
While small in size, the Olympus FE-370 is full of impressive imaging technologies packed into a slim, colorful metal body ideal for people on the move. The FE-370 features 8.0 megapixels of resolution; Dual Image Stabilization for virtually blur-free images; Face Detection for crisp portraits; Perfect Shot Preview to see various shot options before the shutter is pressed; In-Camera Help Guide that makes print manuals obsolete; a rechargeable lithium-ion battery for convenience; and an LCD backlight boost for viewing in bright light.
- Dual Image Stabilization virtually eliminates blur from shaking hands or moving subjects and joins with the TruePic III Image Processor to produce crystal clear images.
- A new Intelligent Auto Mode selects the appropriate shooting mode automatically based on where the camera is aimed, and optimizes the settings accordingly.
- Powerful 5x optical zoom captures action at a distance that is displayed on a big and bright 2.7-inch high resolution LCD.
- Smile Shot automatically triggers the shutter only when a subject smiles, and Expression Edit can even turn frowns upside down.
New Intelligent Auto Mode
Tired of changing the settings on your camera every time youre shooting something different? Included in the FE-370, the Intelligent Auto Mode automatically identifies what you are shooting (Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro, Sports) and adjusts the cameras settings to capture the best quality results. First-time users will enjoy this quick and hassle-free feature, which does the thinking for them and produces incredible images like a pro.
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-370 can detect up to 16 individual faces in one shot.
Perfect Shot Preview
Both 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 they are capturing the exact image desired. 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.
Pre-Set Shooting Modes Featuring Smile Shot
The FE-370 offers 18 pre-set shooting modes, such as Sports, Fireworks and Night Scene with Portrait. The cameras also offer VGA and AVI-quality video and sound, which enable users to shoot and share movies on the big screen or on the Web. And Smile Shot tracks your subjects 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 hoping to capture hard-to-predict baby smiles.
Perfect Fix In-Camera Editing
The FE-370 camera offers Red-Eye Fix, Exposure Fix and in-camera editing features such as resizing and cropping that enable photographers to edit images after the photo has been captured.
Photographers sometimes struggle with making subjects say "cheese." Now they can really turn a frown upside down when their subjects refuse to smile for the birdie. This fun feature on the FE-370 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.
Easy Operation and Help Guides
The new FE-Series cameras feature an enhanced In-Camera Help Guides that make digital photography simple and fun for users of all ages and skill levels. The FE-370 offers Program Auto Mode. Located on the cameras mode dial, this option enables consumers to easily adjust ISO and white balance. A tutorial "shooting guide" educates users on tips for achieving specific effects, such as "shooting into backlight," perfect for bright situations such as a day at the beach, and "adjusting image quality" for uploading images to auction sites. The shooting guide not only provides detailed descriptions for various situations and environments, but also sets the camera for optimum results with the touch of a button.
TruePic III Image Processor
The FE-370 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, which are traditionally associated with increasing image noise or producing grainy photos.
All Olympus digital point-and-shoot cameras accept xD-Picture CardTM media. The FE-370 is also equipped with an adapter, which will enable microSD memory cards to be used when capturing images. The microSD cards are emerging in consumer electronic devices, including mobile phones and PDAs. Users can also easily display photos on their HDTVs.
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. Additionally, with one-click editing tools, such as red-eye removal, images can be touched up before printing or e-mailing. 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 camera has a good solid feel in the hand, and the view screen has good resolution and shows the image smoothly. I compared this camera to several other similar cameras in an electronics store before I bought it at amazon. The reason this one appealed the most was that the buttons don't get in the way when you're trying to take a picture. Some other cameras have wheels that stick out from the side of the camera, so it's very easy to accidentally change settings. This has well placed and simple buttons that are easy to use. They are small, but that was the case on all the other cameras of this size.
The camera takes a second or two to focus, but seems to find focus consistently. The face detect doesn't work that great for moving targets (toddlers) but seemed to work okay for posing adults. Once the focus is found, fully pressing the shutter release took the picture instantly. The camera feels very responsive, but only if you focus first. The few times I pushed the shutter without focusing first, I missed the shot because it took so long to focus and take the picture.
The image stabilization seems to work okay, I didn't notice a huge improvement. The digital stabilization resulted in very poor image quality, so I turned that off. I found that the pictures turned out much better with flash instead.
The picture quality is very good in broad daylight, but the pictures start getting fuzzy when the lighting is not so good. It seemed the picture quality is about average. The pictures are a bit distorted at wide angles, but I think that is expected at this level of camera.
Overall, I would recommend this camera as a fun point and shoot camera that is easy to use and looks and feels nice.
The shell feels pretty solid, the LCD screen is good, the speed is just fine, the battery life is great, but unfortunately the picture quality is BAD.
You don't notice is when you take portraits as much, unless there's something in the picture that is square/rectangular. This is where you really see the distortion in the lens.. items with straight lines have a rounded look to them, almost like a fisheye lens.. It is pretty, pretty BAD.
So if you're thinking of buying this camera for taking pictures of your kids or dogs, it's probably just fine. If you're buying this camera to take pictures of real estate or eBay items that need to show an item accurately, you might want to look elsewhere.
If you need the best camera, go to the SLR level or get a point and shoot of 350 dollars... This is a camera that takes good pictures (inside, outside) it has nice analysis, nice zoom and is loaded with features. I personally have an Olympus SLR and I just bought this so that I have something to easily carry around, when SLR is too bulky, or in places where you don't want to risk to take your SLR... (like in a sandy beach...)
That being said, I used it once... and I am ok with the pictures... (of course it doesn't compare to my SLR pictures). They were inside pictures in a basketball game, where I was able to zoom really close to a player...
The build is pretty nice and sturdy... It feels quite heavy although is a small camera.
My only complain is that when it focus on something it makes a strange noice and at first I wanted to returned it. I don't know if it is mine or it is a general issue... I will further investigate what happens.
If you need a cheap camera that takes good pictures, this one is definitely for you. If you have more expectations, and you want the best picture quality around... buy something else.
the only thing that is a little irritating is that it does Not take pictures fast enough, so sometimes you miss that moment... It is an old model (discontinued), so that should tell you something.
But it works great for me to take on our trips and take pics with my daughter.
