The Help Guide on the FE-130 and FE-140 is a built-in manual that explains all of the terminology of specific functions and the pre-programmed scene modes. It's also a tutorial that educates users on how to accomplish specific effects, such as "shooting into backlight" and "adjusting coloration." The shooting guide not only provides detailed descriptions for various photographic scenarios, but also actually sets the camera with the touch of a button, making the transition from learning to doing instantaneous.
The FE-130/140 features an easy-to-use "One Touch" design with individual buttons for shooting, reviewing and deleting images conveniently located on the top of the cameras with icons so that frequently used functions can be accessed easily. The Help Guide, direct print, zoom and delete options are at your fingertips. Macro mode, Flash mode and a selftimer are located on the arrow pad for quick use while setting up the perfect composition.
The inclusion of 22 shooting modes accessed via a rotating dial and menu button on the back of the camera makes it easy to capture great images in a variety of lighting situations, such as Sunset, Portrait, and Night Scene. QuickTime Movie mode enables users to create short movies of events that can be emailed to family and friends. The Digital Image Stabilization Mode is for capturing crisp, clear pictures - free from the blur sometimes caused by camera shake or moving subjects - with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speed.
The TruePic TURBO™ image processor significantly enhances image quality and delivers faster overall processing speeds for rapid startup, shutter release and playback. TruePic TURBO™ enables the cameras to capture information from every pixel with pixel "micro-smoothing" that delivers clearer and more color-accurate photos, even at lower resolutions.
The new FE-Series enables users to add colorful borders and titles on their images, adjust brightness and saturation, crop and resize images, switch from color to black and white or sepia, even red-eye fix - all without using a computer.
With the power of PictBridge technology, photos can be printed directly from the camera to any PictBridge-enabled printer, such as the Olympus P-11 Digital Photo Printer, without using a computer. Printing and sharing images has never been easier, and the P-11's photo lab-quality dye-sublimation printing produces archival- quality prints in rich color.
Connecting any FE Series camera to a computer is easy with the USB Auto Connect
feature, which connects the camera directly via USB 2.0 cable and requires no
software. The included
OLYMPUS Master software provides the ultimate in digital imaging management. An
intuitive user interface makes downloading to your computer quick and simple, and
images are searchable by date or keyword in the Calendar View.
