The first thing you'll notice is the slim body, thinner than most 3x zoom cameras. The finish is nice, and camera appears solid in your hands. The 5x zoom has average smoothness and noise. That little extra reach can really make all the difference.
The selection dial makes this a joy for someone new to photography. There's an excellent photo & description of each mode, and a very helpful "guide" setting.
The only "cons" on this camera are that it uses the xD memory card instead of the easy to find SD cards, and that it doesn't have an anti-shake system (the anti-blur mode uses a high ISO).
It would be hard to find a camera even close in both function and style in roughly the same price range. But look at the black finish, and you'll really fall in love!
A. The manual is weak, mentions memory card only in passing. But lost near the bottom of a page, it does say
"memory card - see advanced manual".
In a hurry in my hotel room to fire photos, I must find and fire up my laptop to use this "advanced manual on a CD". This is a classic symptom of missed deadlines when they burn CDs to cover for poorly written manuals, likely conceived before the product was even manufactured.
B. Missing pixel in top right corner of black display shows 'green'. Right out of the box, a very visible, imperfection
C. Odd Modes, seem promising but fail
I. Fireworks mode!! Wow, how long have I wanted this!! Now at 4th of July fireworks, the photos come out like doubleexposure on slow film. Nice effect, if you like Monet, but not expected from a camera.
II. Still haven't figured out the cryptic green lines in 'Panorama' mode.
D. Last straw... taking photos of fireworks, experimenting to find the best mode, I must wait for a PROGRESS BAR "processing....." for 5-15 seconds between photos, Not even my 1996 Olympus made me wait that long.
E. Bonus... the battery charger and power cord is bigger than the camera. The battery looks just like a cell phone batter.... $60-$99 at Amazon... $22 for 2 on eBay.
F. Comes with video cable for slide shows on your newer television or laptop.
G. Beautiful, helpful, although somewhat crowded display.Read more ›
I have tried seven newer digital camera ( all brands) this year. None of them came to my sactisfaction. I already have two fe-240 and I just in need of another one. But it is not available in the retail store anymore, not even the manufacturer direct. Fortunately, I locate one in Amazon, togeher with a couple of XD memoriey cards. I sure enjoy what I have.

This camera is nice and small enough to fit in your pocket. It has a great zoom but the pictures turn out fuzzy. Even in decent conditions some of my pictures arn't clear. Read morePublished on July 10, 2009 by C. Traver
I bought this slightly over a year ago and it broke already, had it just long enough for the warranty to be null & void. The lens won't stay out.Published on July 5, 2009 by Felicia Hass
This camera is a disappointment. It is very blurry/grainy on any setting unless you are outside in bright sunlight- then it is only slightly grainy. Read morePublished on February 10, 2009 by E. Crosswell
