Olympus MJU 810

 

Poor weather conditions are no obstacle to the Olympus MJU 810. It can cope with rainy days without a problem. Small enough to slip into a pocket, it has eight megapixels and a three times zoom lens.

"The Olympus MJU 810 is probably the best bet if you are looking for a weatherproof digital camera. It is not perfect, but I prefer it to other cameras in this range. With eight megapixels, digital image stabilisation and help text to guide you through...

A little disappointing, the MJU 810 doesn't quite live up to its predecessor's name offering a solid if not awe inspiring compact model with poorer than expected image quality.

Weatherproof, Nice design

Image quality lacking, No manual features

C|net just layed mits to the 8 megapixel Olympus Stylus 810. In their review of this weatherproof (not waterproof) shooter with image stabilization, c|net calls the 810 a "very good" camera with "solid" image quality. Sure, noise is the "biggest...

Olympus Stylus 810 review: Olympus Stylus 810

 

intro The versatile, water-resistant 8-megapixel Olympus Stylus 810 adapts to dim environments as readily as it braves damp ones. Thanks to a combination of high sensitivity (up to ISO 3,200), digital image stabilization, and Olympus's Bright Capture...

Offers high ISO settings; digital image stabilization; quick burst mode; solid image quality.

LCD washes out in bright light; no manual controls; some features available only at lower resolutions.

If you can stand a bit of noise, the Olympus Stylus 810 can handle your low-light and high-speed shots. Unfortunately, the easily washed-out LCD limits its use in sunlight.

Olympus Stylus 810

 

Olympus' new top-of-the-line Stylus camera is, supposedly, the Stylus 810. It has 8 megapixels, a 3x optical zoom lens and a high-resolution 2.5 inch LCD. Best of all, it's weatherproof (different from waterproof) - means you can even pour water on it...

8 megapixels in an all-weather body ; Average battery life ; Large high-resolution LCD which is sharp and visible ; Fairly powerful flash ; Extremely high-speed continuous shooting (though at 3 MP only) ; A great big collection of scene modes ; Camera...

No manual controls (The Stylus 800 had priority modes) ; Good low-light viewing but bad low-light focusing ; Slow (for "normal" continuous shooting) and limited continuous shooting ; No real optical image stabilization ; Not-even-close 10 cm macro mode...

Stylish and all-weather, the Stylus 810 is a pocket point-and-shoot camera with everything you need to, well, just point and shoot - 8 megapixels for cropping/printing, a large visible LCD, in-camera guide and 20 scene modes.
