Olympus mju 1030 SW

 

Tough by name, tough by nature. We take a look at the new Olympus mju 1030 SW

Olympus has packed the camera with a whole bunch of features, including 24 scene modes, nicely illustrated in the menu with examples of the type of photography they are designed to deal with. This makes it a useful camera for those that aren't into...

Olympus Mju 1030 SW review

 

Olympus has taken things to extremes with the Mju 1030 SW. It isn't just rugged – it's super-sexy

A sexy snapper that can be taken to the extremes and still produce good snaps

Olympus 1030 SW review

 

A great way to take great underwater pictures without getting a financial soaking

Unrivalled build quality ; Takes good pictures ; Impressive range of features ; Still manages to look stylish

Images can be quite noisy ; No image stabilisation

With its superb build quality, competent images and rugged good looks, the Olympus mju 1030 sw is a fantastic piece of kit. If you need a camera that can go anywhere (including the sea) and cope with a harsh environment, then this is the compact model...

Olympus Stylus 1030 SW review

 

Olympus has some of the roughest and toughest cameras on the market, most notably the 10-megapixel Stylus 1030 SW, a compact, point-and-shoot camera that's rugged enough to outlast any contestant on Survivor. But you don't have to be exiled or an...

Rugged, sealed body that's waterproof, crushproof, shockproof, and freezeproof; solid build and design, onboard Guide for beginners; live preview.

Average image quality and performance.

Other cameras may deliver better image quality and performance, but none can survive the range of conditions that the Olympus 1030 SW was designed for.

If the usual suspects don't suit, a bit of ruggedness from Olympus might be just the ticket.

Olympus MJU 1030 SW

 

If I was looking for a tough, hard to break digital camera I would buy the Olympus MJU 1030 SW. You can take it just about anywhere and do just about anything with it. It fits into a pocket and takes a decent snap. It does more or less exactly what it...

Waterproof and shockproof - looks good

There is nothing that really stands out

"The MJU 1030 SW is a tremendously tough and rugged camera. It is small enough to slip into a pocket and takes a good snap shot too. This camera is well worth considering if you are looking for a robust, take anywhere camera."
