Olympus FE-210, FE-230, FE-240, FE-250 Digital Cameras Announced

by Reads (3)

Olympus has updated its entry level FE line of digital cameras with four new models. The FE-210, FE-230, FE-240, and FE-250 will be available in February with prices ranging from $149 to $299. Ease of use and slim, sturdy metal bodies pretty much define the FE line and the new models represent, with bodies as slim as 0.6 inches.

All four of new cameras feature 2.5 inch screens, a built in help guide, digital image stabilization, and several preset shooting modes. With the exception of the FE-210, the new cameras also have Olympus’ Bright Capture technology, a first in this FE line.
