I got the Olympus FE-200 digital camera as a Christmas present. I was absolutely ecstatic to get a digital camera with a zoom, display screen, that shoots short video clips, and has other options.

It has a rechargeable battery, and comes with the charger, no more having to buy batteries all the time for my camera. It takes about 2 hours to fully charge the battery and once charged it lasts for about 6 hours.

It has settings for macro (close up pictures), landscape, portrait, auto, movement, night portrait, indoors, candlelight, self-portrait, sunset, fireworks, through glass, cuisine, and documents.

It has a 5x optical zoom and a 4x digital zoom. I don't care for the digital zoom at all as it lowers the quality of the picture. What I mean with lowering the quality is that the photos become a bit blurred and out of focus. But the optical zoom works great and does nothing to lower the quality of the pictures taken.

My only complaint with the camera is that there is a distinct pause between when you take a photo and being able to take another one. I've often found this extremely frustrating when trying to take pictures of my horses out running or playing.

Overall for someone that is just looking for a decent camera to take photos with for your personal use, this is a good camera. If you are more of a professional or want the ability to take multiple photos, one right after another, I wouldn't recommend this camera.
