The Olympus FE-115 is a five megapixel digital camera with a 2.8x optical zoom lens. Its main attractions are ease of use and low price. It is a no frills digital camera and I can see the FE-115 appealing to anyone who is looking for a simple digital camera without spending a fortune.
The built in flash unit has a maximum range of 3.8m. This falls to 2.2m when the zoom lens is being used. The flash modes the camera has are automatic activation in low and backlight, red-eye reduction, fill-in (forced activation), off (no flash). There are a small number of preset scene modes you can take advantage of. Whenever you use a scene mode you indicate to the camera the type of shot you are about to take. The camera will then use what it considers to be the optimum settings for the photo. The scene modes available are Portrait, Self Portrait, Night Scene and Landscape. There is also an option that allows you to piece together panoramic type shots. This is only available when you use Olympus own brand memory cards. Digital Image Stabilisation can be used as well.
If you can accomodate dark images at times, small LCD screen and taking single shot in 1.09 seconds and five shots in 22.58 seconds, FE-115 is certainly worth considering with it’s low price tag.
