How much movie recording time does the FE-270 have?

In movie mode, the FE-270 can, in most cases, record continuously up to the capacity of the storage medium. When the available capacity is greater than 29 minutes (as when using 1GB or 2GB xD-Picture Card™ media), the maximum recording time per movie is restricted to 29 minutes. Additional movies may then be recorded up to the capacity of the storage medium.

The chart below shows the maximum continuous recording time available to the FE-270 when shooting movies using the camera's internal memory and a variety of optional xD-Picture Card media. The chart assumes that the memory medium has been freshly formatted.

Does Olympus offer an AC adapter that is compatible with the FE-270?

Olympus offers a 110/120 volt AC adapter (E-7AU). It is ideal for conserving battery life and is especially useful when downloading files to a computer, for extended work in a studio, during printing, or when viewing images while connected to a TV or VCR.

Do not connect or disconnect the AC adapter while the camera is turned on. Doing so could affect the camera’s internal settings or functions. Be sure to read the instruction manual for the AC adapter.

To purchase the E-7AU AC adapter (Item #200751-410) from Olympus’ online store, click here.
