Olympus FE FE-300 12.0 MP Digital Camera - Black

Want to do more for less? With a giant 12.0 Megapixels, the Olympus FE-300 is the solution. Encased in a slim, metal body, this model doesn't compromise functionality for simplicity. A bright 3x optical zoom together with a large 6.4cm LCD make framing shots a breeze. Meanwhile, BrightCapture Technology works to improve results in low-light conditions. The integration of the powerful TruePic III image processor puts unprecedented power and image quality at your fingertips. So that high performance doesn't translate to difficulty, the FE-300 features the "One button, one function" design principle. Together with a built-in guide function, it ensures the greatest of photographic ease and flexibility. With 17 scene modes including Candle, Fireworks or Portrait, you may never have to manually adjust a setting. And using the integrated Face Detection Technology, the inventive Smile Shot mode even recognizes faces in a scene and then automatically releases the shutter when subjects smile. Meanwhile, an eight-step mode dial means you're never more than a few clicks away from the appropriate camera mode. What's more, high ISO settings minimize the chance of blur caused by camera shake, and 25 languages on board ensure that menus are easily navigable for virtually everyone. Equipped with both internal memory and an xD-Picture Card slot, the FE-300 is ready to capture both still shots and movies with sound up to memory capacity. And the Olympus Master software including the Muvee Pack trial version makes it a cinch to transfer, edit and archive images on a personal computer.

I do like having the option of being able to take a digital photo at an event (like a birthday, wedding, etc.) and do so occasionally. I probably use a digital camera about 10 times a year,...
