Olympus mju 790 SW

 

If you enjoy being dropped from a height into freezing water, Olympus has just the camera for you

The 790 SW looks rather different to the previous SW models. The almost military styling of the 770 and 725 has been softened, and the new camera looks a lot more like a conventional pocket compact. The case is still made almost entirely of metal, and...

Olympus 790 SW review

 

If you are heading out for the slopes or off scuba diving then the rugged 790 SW could well be the thing to slip in your backpack

If used properly this rugged camera is well worth the money and makes you feel a little more manly into the bargain

Olympus Mju 790 SW 7Mp compact camera

 

Just breaking the £200 barrier – although it's a safe bet retailers will price it at a more appealing level – is this waterproof (to 3m deep) and 'drop proof' (from heights up to 1.5m) beauty from Olympus, the Olympus Mju 790 SW.

The Olympus Mju 790 SW is a camera that is less about headline image quality and more about the practicalities of taking photos in scenarios that would otherwise test – or possibly destroy – lesser rivals. You pay a premium for the Olympus Mju 790 SW's...

OLYMPUS STYLUS 790 SW

 

Point-and-shoot digital camera makers make many claims about their products, but few boast about the toughness of their snappers as Olympus does about its 7.1 megapixel Stylus 790SW ($239-$350). What sets this byteshooter apart from others in its class...

Olympus MJU 790 SW

 

The Olympus MJU 790 SW is a waterproof, shockproof and weatherproof digital camera. It is small enough to fit into a pocket and looks good as well. This is a 7 megapixel model with a standard 3x optical zoom lens. If you are looking for a poolside...

Indoors when light not perfect - ease of use - style and design - waterproof - shockproof

Sharpness of photos - photos very bright

"There are not many waterproof, shockproof and weatherproof cameras out there. If you are expecting the very best in picture quality you will be disappointed, but if you are looking for a fun camera to use at the beach then this one is worth looking...

Olympus mju790SW

 

When someone tells a reviewer that a camera is drop, shock and water-resistant, what do they seriously expect to happen? Quite... the claim's going to be tested. What red-blooded reviewer is going to take some camera maker's word for it?

Ease of use, Picture quality

Fiddly buttons, Could do with a more rugged finish

Small, easy to use and with good picture quality this is ideal for the great outdoors
