Question about Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

1 Answer

FE 280 unclear pictures

My photos are not as clear as I would expect. My previous olympus (older 4MP) always gave clear pictures. The photos seem better when taken outside. I am using the anti shake mode (the hand symbol.) Have I got some setting wrong ? The camera is only 2 months old.

    I have been experiencing similar problems with my Olympus FE280. It is really inconsistent in the quality of pictures--some will turn out great, some will turn out fuzzy in certain parts and clear in others, it's really frustrating. I'm planning on returning it to the factory since it's still under warrantee. I should have just stuck with buying another Canon!

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 :-)

Dull colorless pictures


Have you made any changes to the settings? Check the ISO, picture quality (should be at highest setting), white balance, etc. You could also go into the setup menu and find the "reset" entry to reset back to default factory settings.

The date doesn't show up when I print pictures from my Olympus FE-280 camera. How do I get he date to print on my photo's?


By default Olympus cameras do not print the date on the images when they are downloaded to a PC. Olympus does not include this functionality because they feel that it detracts from image quality. There is a function of the camera called print order that you can set that it will print the date on the images but this is only if you take the card to a photo processing store. However if you use the Olympus Master software and print the images that you have previously transferred there is a check box in the print setting window that you can add the date and or time to the printed image.

How do I erase ALL my pictures?


When you connect your camera to the computer it should appear as an external hard drive on your desktop (as well as start up your photo handling software).  At the desktop level you should be able to open the camera as a drive and navigate the folders to the photos.  Then you can delete them the same way you would delete any file and empty the trash before you unmount the camera from the desktop..  Sports are so variable that one group of settings would not work satisfactorily for all.

How to shoot in black and white???


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 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.
