Olympus FE-280 8MP Digital Camera (Silver)

Condition: Brand new, USA Warranty
The FE-280 (Silver) features Digital Image Stabilization Mode and Edit, coupled with 21 Shooting Modes, means you'll get high-quality results in all shooting situations.

If you want a compact digital camera that offers easy-to-use features, amazing image quality and a slim go-anywhere design, the FE-280 is the camera for you. Digital Image Stabilization Mode and Edit, coupled with 21 Shooting Modes, means you'll get high-quality results in all shooting situations. Available in four color options.


  • Get superior image quality with a high-resolution, 8-megapixel CCD. Create large prints without losing any detail.
  • The precision-crafted Olympus lens delivers sharper, clearer images and brings you 3x closer to the action without taking a step.
  • 2.5" High-Resolution LCD (230,000 pixels) with Backlight Boost Button provides easy composing, shooting and sharing of your images with friends and family.
  • With high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds, Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) allows you to freeze the action and capture sharp, blur-free images. DIS Edit gives you the option of fixing blurry images right in the camera.
  • Face Detection tracks your subjects' faces within the frame and focuses and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
  • Using a live, multi-frame window on the LCD, Perfect Shot Preview lets you see the effects of various settings before you shoot, so you can always capture the perfect shot.
  • Use Perfect Fix to instantly correct your shots. With the touch of a button, lighten shadows, remove red-eye and eliminate blur, so your less-than-perfect shots can still turn out just as you planned.
  • Program Auto Mode gives you greater creative control so you can adjust settings like white balance and ISO.
  • Bright Capture Technology displays a clearer, brighter image on the LCD when previewing and capturing pictures or recording video in low light situations.
  • Learn as you go. The In-Camera Help Guides provide a brief description of camera settings and features, conveniently displayed on the LCD, at the push of a button.
  • Using 21 preset Shooting Modes, you can optimize the camera's settings for any shooting situation to ensure you capture a great shot. Modes include Smile Shot (NEW!), Portrait, Landscape, Light Scene, three Underwater shooting modes and more. You can also shoot TV-quality movies.
  • Quickly and easily find your favorite images. My Favorites is an in-camera album that stores your favorite images so you can easily share them with friends and family.
  • Initially developed for the professional Digital SLR, the FE-280's TruePicTM III Image Processor delivers superior images with true-to-life color, sharper detail and less noise.
  • The included Lithium-Ion rechargeable battery provides long-lasting, economical shooting power so you'll never miss that important shot.
