The FE-200 is one of several additions to Olympus' FE series of entry-level point-n-shoot
models for 2006. Slim, compact styling and new features have been added to these latest FE
cameras, including Digital Image Stabilization, a large 2.5-inch LCD, 6.0-megapixel CCD image
sensor, and 5x optical zoom lens.
The 5x "wide" optical zoom (28mm-140mm equivalent in 35mm photography) makes it easy to get
everyone and everything into one shot. The FE-200 captures large family photographs, even
when there's no room to back up, as well as vast scenic panoramas. Its metal body provides
durability and a sleek appearance.
These new FE-series cameras feature an enhanced Help Guide that makes digital photography simple
for users of all levels. A tutorial "shooting guide" educates users on tips for achieving
specific effects, such as "shooting into backlight" and "adjusting coloration." The shooting
guide not only provides detailed descriptions for various photographic scenarios, but also

deleting images, conveniently located on the top of the cameras with icons so that frequently
used functions can be accessed easily. Shooting, playback, zoom and delete options are at your
fingertips. Macro mode, flash mode and a self-timer are located on the 4way controller for quick
use while setting up the perfect composition.
The inclusion of 16 shooting modes, including QuickTime® Movie, accessed via a rotating dial
and menu button on the back of the cameras makes it easy to capture great images in a variety
of lighting situations, such as Sports, Fireworks, and Night Scene with Portrait. The FE-180,
FE-190 and FE-200 models offer QuickTime® Movie mode, which enables users to create short
movies of events that can be emailed to family and friends.
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.
