Olympus FE-360 is the “Best Low Cost System” in Backscatter’s 2009 review

In Backscatter’s Best Underwater Point & Shoot Cameras for 2009 review, the FE-360 was selected as the best camera for divers looking for a camera in the $259 — $850 price bracket. The article goes into great detail on what to look out for when selecting an underwater photography system that is based on compact digital cameras.

To make this system work underwater, you’d need to at least purchase the Olympus PT-044 Underwater Housing to go with the camera.

FE-360 tested in DPReview’s Budget Camera Group Test

In their Budget Camera Group Test (Q4 2008) Review, DPReview concluded:

With the FE-360 Olympus has managed to produce the perfect product for someone who wants a cool looking camera but isn’t actually that bothered about taking pictures. Building a camera to a price is always going to involve compromises and Olympus chose (sensibly, from a commercial point of view I guess) to blow the entire budget on the casing, which certainly looks and feels more expensive than it is. Unfortunately that means that it appears some serious corner cutting has happened inside the camera, resulting in a performance and picture quality that struggles to be anything more than merely adequate.
