Olympus mju 780

 

Duncan Evans dons waterskins and wellies in order to review the all-weather mju 780. Well, that’s what he said he was wearing them for.

7Mp resolution; Good ISO range; 5x optical zoom; Easy to use; Stylish and solid; Guide mode for beginners; Weather proof

ISO performance poor

A brilliantly designed unit, the MJU 780 will please a variety of consumers with its optical image stabilisation, 5x optical zoom and high ISO sensitivities. Its pictures aren't the best on the market but they are more than adequate for most uses.

Image Stabilisation, Brilliant design

Slow burst mode, No manual white balance, Slow shutter speed

Olympus Stylus 780

 

Olympus's Stylus 780 packs a 7.1 megapixel sensor, a 5x optical zoom, a crisp 2.5-inch LCD, and face-detection technology into a weatherproof camera body that is slightly larger but more stylish than the Sony DSC-W80's.

Image quality not as good as FujiFilm's F40FD

Olympus Mju 780

 

The Olympus Mju 780 is a 'weatherproof' blinged-out 7-megapixel compact digital camera with a wealth of shiny bits and a whacking great 5x optical zoom.

Outlook On top of all this, the Mju 780 claims to be weatherproof. That sounds like fightin' talk ... We'll be putting this disco duck through its paces in a full review soon.

Olympus Stylus 780 Review

 

I saw the Olympus Stylus 780 at the 2007 PMA tradeshow in Las Vegas and couldn't wait to try it. It's got all the makings of a great pocket-sized, outdoor and travel camera. The weatherproof body, Dual iS image stabilization, new TruePic III processor,...

Weatherproof, Pocket-sized, 5x optical zoom, Real mechanical image stabilization!, Live histogram display, Great high-ISO performance, Excellent macro options

No optical viewfinder, Weak flash, No aperture or shutter speed display, Soft spots in lens, Slow shot-to-shot time

There are so many good things about the Olympus Stylus 780. It fits in your pocket, it's quick, it's weatherproof, the image stabilization works great, and the high ISO performance is amazing for a compact digital camera. But no matter how much I want...
