Olympus mju 830


With the sort of weather we've been having lately, a rainproof camera should sell well.

(£215). Its closest competition may be the new Nikon CoolPix S510, also £190, although that camera has only a 3x zoom lens and isn't weatherproof.

Olympus [mju:] 830: Review


Here's looking at Mju...

Easy to use ; Splashproof body ; Useful macro mode ; Shadow adjustment is useful ; Image stabilisation a bonus

Weak flash ; Noise/contrast issues at higher ISO ; Simplicity at expense of user control

we tested recently), but it is splashproof. It will survive a mild moistening, but not a thorough drenching - so if you routinely dip your camera into beer glasses full of lager, look elsewhere. If you get the camera wet then dry it off before pressing...

Olympus Mju 830


Matt Grayson takes a look at the Olympus Mju 830 whilst thinking of a suitable pun for the intro.

Good looks; Great build; Weatherproof; Good lens quality; Super macro mode is good

Noise results are saddening

Olympus Stylus 830 Review


Sensor-shift Image Stabilization helps reduce blur due to camera shake and Digital Image Stabilization favours a high ISO and fast shutter speed to reduce or eliminate blurring caused by subject movement.

Long zoom and sensor-shift image stabilization


The ultra-compact 830 is an interesting addition to the Stylus line. You get an attractive, handy 8-megapixel point & shoot camera that comes in a variety of cool colors. But it costs a full $80 more than the seemingly identical Olympus Stylus 820 that...

5X optical zoom, Dual image stabilization, 640 x 480 movies at a full 30 fps, Advanced face detection mode, Weatherproof body, Digital image stabilization, Underwater modes, PreSet Shooting Mode lets you select best setting

No voice recording mode, xD-Picture card harder to fnd and more expensive, Smaller screen and less onboard memory

Olympus Stylus 830 digital camera Review and Prices


Olympus has packed a lot of punch into its ultra-compact, beginner-level digital camera, the Stylus 830. And if you can find this model for quite a bit less than its $299 suggested price -- which you probably will be able to do -- you'll have a great...

Good value, great image quality, 5X optical zoom lens, image stabilization, stylish camera body, sharp and bright LCD

Layout of controls can be a problem for some people, battery life can be less than expected

Olympus Stylus 830


The 8-megapixel Olympus Stylus 830 combines an extended 5x optical zoom lens with the slim case of a pocket-friendly point-and-shoot. Few current digital cameras combine the same skinny body with an extended zoom lens. The Stylus 830 features a...

Although it has impressive specs, the Stylus 830 fails to deliver in image quality. Colors are dramatically inaccurate, especially yellows, greens, and blues. This makes photos of blue skies and green foliage look dull. White balance is equally bad,...

The world of mid-level compact point and shoots is an increasingly crowded place, and the list of highly competent ones seems to have grown exponentially. With its well regarded all-weather technology, the 8 megapixel, 5x zoom Olympus Stylus 830 would...

All-weather construction, Fast, fast, fast, Light on the saturation, sharpening, Good macro modes

Difficult user interface, Soft images, Weak and inconsistent battery life, Frightening flash unit
