Olympus Stylus 720 SW review

 

Olympus Stylus 720 SW

Waterproof up to 10 feet; shock-resistant to drops and mild impact; easily pocketable; better-than-average outdoor image quality with impressive detail.

Few manual controls; cumbersome interface; low-light images prone to visual noise.

For those who need a tough, waterproof, and ultracompact digital camera, the Olympus Stylus 720 SW's strengths outweigh some frustrating usability issues.

Olympus MJU 720SW

 

Weatherproof to a depth of 3m and also shockproof if you drop it from 1.5m the Olympus MJU 720SW is somewhat less delicate than the majority of digital cameras out there. Worth a close look if you are looking for a camera to take to the beach.

Robust ; Style and colour choice ; Waterproof

Shutter lag

"Waterproof and shockproof the Olympus MJU 720SW clearly offers something different to the rest. The camera performed well in my tests, is straightforward and pocket sized. All in all it should be a popular digital camera."

Olympus 720SW

 

Some nice features, Shockproof, Waterproof

Images could be better

Whilst this camera's pictures could be better, it's superior design and rugged features are a huge boon, and for many people will make this the ideal camera.

Olympus Stylus 720 SW

 

Drop it or soak it, the Stylus 720 SW point-and-shoot keeps on clicking.

Very good picture quality—underwater and above ground. Both waterproof and shock-resistant.

Slow recycle time. Some shutter lag. Pricey. Choppy video with tinny sound.

Olympus Stylus 720 SW Camera

 

Looking for a camera for klutzes? If you tend to be hard on your cameras (by dropping them in a pool, for example) Olympus may have your number. The Stylus 720 SW ($400 as of 6/15/06) is the first pocket-sized digital camera I've seen (and I've seen...

Solid metal body, minimal shutter lag Rated waterproof and shockproof

Dimly lit LCD Can't alter contrast/saturation settings

Also, digital noise was evident in images shot at ISO 400 and higher--a common problem with point-and-shoot cameras offering high ISO settings. The 720 SW allows you to manually set its light sensitivity up to ISO 1600, though a couple of the...
