One of four simultaneously announced new FE-series digital camera models with approachable, beginner-friendly features, the Olympus FE-240 ships from February 2007 priced at $250. The Olympus FE-240 combines a seven megapixel CCD imager, an impressively compact Olympus-branded 5x optical zoom lens, and a 2.5″ LCD display in a pocket-friendly body. The FE240 aims to keep things simple, with thirteen scene modes that make it easy to get the shot without understanding the subtleties of shutter speeds, apertures and the suchlike.

As well as 20MB of built-in memory, images can be stored on xD-Picture cards. The FE-240 offers a maximum ISO sensitivity of 1000, and has a VGA movie mode with sound at a framerate of 30fps. Power comes from a proprietary Lithium Ion rechargeable battery. There’s also USB computer connectivity, and video out to let you see your photos on a television.
