00:00:08 00:00:10 Welcome back to ComputerTV.
00:00:10 00:00:12 I'm Sam and today I'm going to tell you about this new Olympus.
00:00:12 00:00:15 This is the FE-45. Now if you're in the market
00:00:15 00:00:18 for a new digital camera, don't want to spend too much money
00:00:18 00:00:20 but you want all the basics and more
00:00:20 00:00:22 this is definitely a great digital camera for you.
00:00:22 00:00:24 Now it is a point and shoot camera,
00:00:24 00:00:25 it's perfect for beginners
00:00:26 00:00:28 and it's really really easy to use.
00:00:28 00:00:30 Alright so let's take a look around it,
00:00:30 00:00:33 right here we're going to power it on with the power button.
00:00:33 00:00:35 Alright and you'll see right here
00:00:36 00:00:39 you have your 3x optical zoom, your 4x digital zoom.
00:00:39 00:00:42 Now this is a 10 megapixel camera.
00:00:42 00:00:44 And when I turn it to the side,
00:00:44 00:00:46 I'm going to go in and out,
00:00:46 00:00:48 you'll see the zoom. It's nothing too crazy,
00:00:48 00:00:52 you're not going to get professional looking images
00:00:52 00:00:55 with this thing but it will definitely do the job.
00:00:55 00:00:58 When I turn it over you'll see you have a 2.5 inch LCD screen.
00:00:59 00:01:01 Nice images, look there I am, hi, I'm here.
00:01:01 00:01:05 Now you have ISO capabilities until 1600,
00:01:05 00:01:08 you also have 16 different shooting modes,
00:01:08 00:01:12 including movie mode. You have 19 megs of internal storage,
00:01:12 00:01:18 but you can also get one of those xD or microSD cards,
00:01:18 00:01:20 and you can have all the images you need
00:01:20 00:01:22 saved on your digital camera.
00:01:22 00:01:24 Now what's cool about this is that in playback mode
00:01:25 00:01:26 you have instant editing, so you can resize,
00:01:27 00:01:29 you can do a slide show, also has red eye reduction,
00:01:30 00:01:32 all that without plugging into a PC.
00:01:32 00:01:35 Has digital image stabilization,
00:01:35 00:01:37 so if you're somewhere rocky you don't have to worry
00:01:37 00:01:38 about getting blurry images,
00:01:39 00:01:40 the camera will do a lot of the work for you.
00:01:41 00:01:44 You also have face detection, which is great for those pictures
00:01:44 00:01:46 that you like to take when you like stretch out your arm
00:01:46 00:01:47 like so and you're like errr.
00:01:48 00:01:50 Face detection definitely comes in handy for those.
00:01:50 00:01:53 And this camera takes two AA batteries
00:01:54 00:01:56 so no rechargeable batteries here, two AAs.
00:01:57 00:02:01 Alright so, as I was going around with this 360 tour of mine
00:02:01 00:02:04 you'll see right here this is the shutter release.
00:02:04 00:02:06 This is how you take a picture.
00:02:06 00:02:10 Alright on the back you see again your 2.5 inch LCD screen.
00:02:10 00:02:13 You have your wide and your tight right here for your zoom.
00:02:13 00:02:15 You have your display button,
00:02:15 00:02:18 so if you don't want any of those fancy numbers on there,
00:02:19 00:02:21 and also you have your grid for your composition.
00:02:21 00:02:25 Ok so right here you have your mode selector
00:02:25 00:02:28 to go from manual to program, scene selection,
00:02:28 00:02:30 your playback button, and around the square you have
00:02:31 00:02:33 some dedicated buttons for your flash, your exposure,
00:02:33 00:02:35 your macro mode and your self-timer
00:02:36 00:02:38 so you can set up pretty little shots of you and the fam.
00:02:38 00:02:41 And then right here you have your trash button,
00:02:41 00:02:45 and your menu button. Then on the back you'll see
00:02:45 00:02:47 to hook up to a tripod you've got here
00:02:47 00:02:50 this little, what do you call this?
00:02:50 00:02:53 Tripod holder. And then here,
00:02:53 00:02:55 this is where your rechargeable batteries goes
00:02:55 00:02:59 as well as your xD or your microSD card.
00:02:59 00:03:02 And on the side right here this is your USB port,
00:03:02 00:03:03 your mini-USB port actually,
00:03:04 00:03:05 this is how you hook up to a PC.
00:03:05 00:03:09 You can upload all your videos to Youtube, Facebook,
00:03:09 00:03:11 just get everything off your camera
00:03:11 00:03:13 and share it on the web.
00:03:13 00:03:16 Alright so I'm sure you guys are getting antsy over there,
00:03:16 00:03:18 you really want to take a look inside this camera,
00:03:19 00:03:21 see all the things it can do, so let's get started.
00:03:22 00:03:24 Alright so right now we are in program mode,
00:03:24 00:03:26 also known as manual mode,
00:03:26 00:03:28 and when you're in program mode
00:03:28 00:03:32 and you hit menu, you'll see it takes you to your camera menu.
00:03:32 00:03:35 Now when you click OK on the camera icon
00:03:35 00:03:36 you'll see you have some options,
00:03:37 00:03:40 white balance, ISO, remember you have capabilities up to 1600
00:03:41 00:03:42 so if you're shooting in really low light
00:03:42 00:03:45 your image should still come out pretty decent.
00:03:45 00:03:49 You also have panorama, now this has panorama abilities
00:03:49 00:03:51 for 10 different images and what it does
00:03:51 00:03:54 is it takes these images, kind of pastes them together
00:03:54 00:03:58 until you have a panoramic view of wherever you are.
00:03:58 00:04:00 You have face detection, we're going to take,
00:04:00 00:04:02 we're going to set face detection on.
00:04:02 00:04:05 Face detection really comes in handy sometimes.
00:04:05 00:04:07 Ok, so we're all done here,
00:04:08 00:04:09 we're going to get out of here
00:04:10 00:04:11 and I'm going to take a picture of myself right now
00:04:11 00:04:13 so you can see the face detection.
00:04:13 00:04:15 See that green box, that's face detection.
00:04:15 00:04:18 It makes sure that all the images are in the shot
00:04:18 00:04:22 and that they're not blurry, everything's you know,
00:04:22 00:04:25 it gets exposed correctly. All right, here we go.
00:04:28 00:04:34 Ok, not bad. Now let's go and show you another mode now,
00:04:34 00:04:36 now that you've seen program/manual mode
00:04:36 00:04:38 and you do that by again hitting your mode button.
00:04:38 00:04:42 IAuto mode, now let's say you don't want to do any work,
00:04:42 00:04:43 you want the camera to do everything for you,
00:04:43 00:04:46 find out what scene is best, this is iAuto mode
00:04:47 00:04:50 and it's fantastic if you're a beginner.
00:04:50 00:04:52 Ok let's get out of here, vibration reduction.
00:04:53 00:04:55 Now this is a digital image stabilization,
00:04:56 00:04:59 I'm telling you if you are on a boat, somewhere rocky,
00:04:59 00:05:00 taking pictures of moving objects,
00:05:01 00:05:02 this is really really going to come in handy,
00:05:03 00:05:05 it's going to make sure that your shots don't come out blurry.
00:05:06 00:05:08 Alright we're going to go to another mode.
00:05:08 00:05:11 Scene mode, ok. So here you have 16 different options,
00:05:11 00:05:14 we're go through them. You have potrait, landscape,
00:05:14 00:05:17 night, night and portrait. Ooh, look at that combo.
00:05:18 00:05:22 Sport, indoor, candle, self-portrait,
00:05:22 00:05:27 got a bunch on here, documents, back up to portrait again.
00:05:27 00:05:30 Ok let's get out of here, so that's scene selection mode
00:05:30 00:05:33 and like I said it makes sure that your images
00:05:33 00:05:35 are going to come out perfect,
00:05:35 00:05:38 you know crystal clear, everything you know is going to be right
00:05:38 00:05:40 as far as the setting goes.
00:05:40 00:05:43 Alright so again here is your movie mode.
00:05:43 00:05:44 Now when you're in movie mode
00:05:44 00:05:46 you have a couple of different options
00:05:46 00:05:50 for sizing, and if you click on the menu button right here
00:05:51 00:05:53 and you scroll up to image quality,
00:05:53 00:05:58 you'll see you can choose beteen VGA and QVGA.
00:05:58 00:06:01 Now VGA has a 640 by 480 resolution
00:06:02 00:06:05 and QVGA has 320 by 240 resolution.
00:06:05 00:06:08 Now this is great if you're planning on uploading it
00:06:08 00:06:11 to the web, you don't want your movies to be too big.
00:06:11 00:06:15 And then in frame rate you have 30 fps or 15.
00:06:16 00:06:19 Alright, now let's get back out of here.
00:06:19 00:06:23 This is movie mode again and to change modes back to P
00:06:24 00:06:27 you just click your mode, your moods,
00:06:27 00:06:30 ha your mood, your mode selector right here.
00:06:30 00:06:33 Ok so now once you're in playback
00:06:34 00:06:36 you just click this blue playback button,
00:06:36 00:06:39 you can see all of your images, you can sort through them all,
00:06:40 00:06:42 look at these, ok here we go.
00:06:42 00:06:44 And if you click menu brings you back up
00:06:44 00:06:49 to your menu selections, and if you go into edit here,
00:06:49 00:06:53 this is where you can resize and you can crop your image as well.
00:06:54 00:06:57 So once you, you know, crop your image,
00:06:57 00:06:58 cut off an arm here and there,
00:06:58 00:07:03 cut off you know, some hair you can just click menu
00:07:03 00:07:06 and you're back to where you started. Ok.
00:07:07 00:07:09 And if, when you're also in playback mode,
00:07:09 00:07:14 if you hit menu and you move to your left,
00:07:14 00:07:15 excuse me, here is your slideshow.
00:07:16 00:07:17 And this is great if you're showing,
00:07:17 00:07:18 if you've just gone on a trip
00:07:18 00:07:20 and you want to show off all your pictures
00:07:20 00:07:22 but you don't want to sit there like going through each one,
00:07:22 00:07:24 slideshow really really comes in handy.
00:07:25 00:07:27 Ok I think we're all done here,
