This camera does not have the capability to shoot images in black and white. What you need to do is to take the images in color, download them to computer and then use photo editing software to then be in black and white. Most software applications have that as an editing option.

I have a olympus FE-280 camera, I need to know how to date stamp photos


The FE-280 will not deface your photos by scrawling digits across them. However, the data is stored with each file. Just about any photo viewer should be able to show you this data. Depending on the program and printer, you can print the date on the image, in the margins, or on the back. Refer to the documentation for whatever program you're using to print. If you print directly from the camera, the instructions are in the "Printing pictures" section of the Advanced Manual (page 29 in my copy).

How can i take black and white photos with this camera?


You can't. The FE-280 always captures in color. You can convert to black&white using just about any photo editing program on the computer, and this is the recommended procedure, as you have more control over saturation, brightness, etc. And, in the event a UFO lands and Bigfoot steps out of it, you'll have color pictures to sell :-)

How do set olympus fe-4000 to take photos in black and white?


Sorry, but the FE-4000 does not have a black&white mode. However, just about any photo editing program will have the ability to convert a color photo to black&white. Doing so on a computer gives you much better control over brightness, contrast, and other factors.

Hi, my olympus FE-290 suddenly went black. couldnt see through the lense. Couldnt click the snaps. It happened all of a sudden. It did let me click the photos 5 mins before and suddenly when I was trying...


I just solved the problem. The lens system wire connector to the main pcb was out of this female conector. Only you need its disassemble the camera and in the back of the lcd there's the conector, press it with carefully and test your camera.

BE CAREFULLY WITH THE LCD WIRE WHEN YOU TURN IT.

How to shoot in black and white?


This camera is not capable to shoot images in black and white as this is not a menu selectable feature of this camera. You can take the image in color and then download it to your computer and then using photo editing software change the image to black and white or monotone using the edit function in that photo editing program.

I set up the date & time on my Olympus FE-280 but whenever I print, the datestamp does not get printed on the photo. How can I print the photo with the date stamp on it?


FE 280 does not have the option of printing datetime stamp on the photos. As it will affect the resolution they did not provide this option.
