|Olympus FE-230 - Optical lens|
According to Steve Digicams: "The FE230 features a 3x optical zoom lens, which offers a typical range for a compact consumer model, with plenty of positions to help you compose a shot. Covering a 35mm equivalent range of 38 - 114mm, it favors the telephoto end. However, the 38mm wide angle extreme will afford nice landscape and group photos, while the telephoto end is great for close-up portraits or macro photography as well as helping bring your distant subjects a bit closer. I noticed moderate barrel distortion and slight pincushioning at the wide angle and telephoto extremes, respectively."
Olympus FE230 review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "The Olympus FE-230 is powered by a tiny LI-42B 3.7v 740mAh Lithium Ion battery pack that is charged in the included rapid charger. Olympus does not specify the battery runtime, however, I found battery life was good, allowing me to capture about 70 pictures, several short movie clips as well as conclude many other tests with power to spare. Because you can use one battery while charging another, we suggest you add at least one extra pack to your purchase and keep it charged and ready at all times."
