    The Stylus 1010 is an older camera but it's a better one. The only advantages the FE-5010 has are its Intelligent Auto mode (which automatically selects certain scene modes) and its smaller size. The 1010 has more optical zoom, a burst mode (for continuous shooting), a very good flash and a powerful battery. The battery on the FE-5010 is weak - you'll be lucky to get 100 pictures before you have to recharge. The 1010 will take at least 200 pictures before the battery runs down.

    Thanks Andy for your helpful comment :)

    Is it true that 1010 images are rather blurry? or it is just pertained to the camera movement while taking pictures?

    Thanks ;)

    I don't know where you heard that Stylus 1010 images were blurry. DCR's review of the 1020, practically the same camera, said of its image quality:

    That's a very positive review of the camera's image quality.

    Here are some sample photos - they don't seem blurry to me.

    Thanks Andy :)

    I read about blurry images in these links :

    http://forum.digitalcamerareview.com/showthread.php?t=11542

    & this one too:

    However, I'll consider buying the 1010 Olympus camera comparable to other camera brands due to its battery capability.

    Thanks. ;)
