      Good value for money!

      I have recently bought this Olympus FE-5020 camera on ebay for about £80 and think it is great!!!

      The first thing that attracted me - it's size: 9.3 cm x 2.5 cm x 5.6 cm, weight - 107g. Such a compact and mega slim camera with a big LCD screen. It's so convenient to take it anywhere with me! I easily put it into my pocket, so don't have to carry a bag with me!

      You are offered a variety of colours: dark grey, red, blue, white, brown. I preferred the red one 

      What I also liked about this camera is that it offers 12 megapixels, so even very big printed pictures are high quality. I have had a baby a while ago, so I enjoy taking pictures of her. And all prints look just fab! I made some pictures size A4 - everyone who visits us say they look like they were taken by a professional photographer (which I'm not...)!

      With AF Tracking, camera automatically tracks moving subjects and captures them. I didn't expect this feature can be useful. But now with a baby..... Sometimes there's no other way to capture her!

      5x optical zoom - well, I haven't tried that yet. But it's a great way to capture for example panorama views. I think it will be very useful during holidays. Cause I remember often failing to take good pictures of some great views.

      Use one of 21 Shooting Modes: Intelligent Auto, Program Auto, Digital Image Stabilization Plus, Magic Filter (Pop Art, Pinhole, Fisheye), Scene Modes (1. PORTRAIT, 2. LANDSCAPE, 3. NIGHT SCENE. 4. NIGHT+PORTRAIT, 5. SPORT, 6. INDOOR, 7. CANDLE, 8. SELF PORTRAIT, 9. SUNSET, 10. FIREWORKS, 11. CUISINE, 12. DOCUMENTS, 13. BEACH & SNOW, 14. PET), Movie. They optimize the camera's settings for ideal results. Or try moviemaking with the camera's Movie with Sound capabilities.

      This camera is so easy to use, that I didn't need manual instruction - a lot of features are explained directly in camera.

      Another one good thing I liked about this camera - LI-42B Li-ion rechargeable battery, which should last about 150 pictures, though it lasts longer for me  I enjoy that I don't have to carry spare AA batteries with me. Just have a charger which is a compact one too.

      Olympus FE-5020 supports microSD Memory Card that wasn't included with the camera. I wasn't very fond of it first. But I managed to find it cheap - bought a Sandisk 2GB microSD Card with an adapter (to fit computer) for £4.15. So I'm happy now 

      I have this Olympus camera for a few months already and still think it is great! I like quality of pictures, fast shutter speed (my previous camera was very slow...), is very stylish and pocket size!

      All features in this camera make it almost a half professional camera. Trust me, it's such a good value for money!!!
