Incorporating a ?one button, one function? design principle, the FE-210 is ready for use straight out of the box and 15 scene modes have been pre-programmed with the best settings for many common shooting situations such as Indoor, Fireworks, and Self Portrait ? a handy Movie function has even been included to let users record the action as it happens.

To meet memory needs, the camera?s internal memory is complemented with an xD-Picture Card slot.
