Olympus Stylus 760 (Black)

 

We suspect Olympus must have put Hermes in charge of the Stylus digital camera releases since they came to market so quickly. The Stylus 740 and 750 are barely six months old, and the Stylus 710 was only about that old when they arrived. With an...

Sleek, light body; almost no lens distortion.

Slightly sluggish performance, mediocre color reproduction.

The Olympus Stylus 760 is a great choice if you just want a small, light, weather-resistant camera, but beware of image flaws.

Olympus Stylus 760 Digital Camera - Express Review

 

Reviewer Rob Murray found a lot to like in the Olympus Stylus 760, but also at least one "glaring" issue, namely glare from the LCD monitor when shooting outdoors. The Olympus 760 is compact, ultra-stylish, slips in and out pockets easily, and takes...

"Lower your standard from perfection & its a great deal"

 

Have owned 4 or 5 Olympus cameras over the years and have taken plenty of pics both film & digital. Am not a pro but do know my way around the menus and how to tweek shots for best results. Love the size of the 760 and most pictures have turned out...

For the money, I can't find anything to gripe about. I wasn't expecting DSLR capabilities when I bought this but have been very pleased with performance & durability.

See Above.

Olympus Stylus 760

 

Well made camera that looks very nice and compact. Weather proof feature is useful. Main advantage is that this is a lightweight, easy to use style camera. The LCD screen is relatively large and clear. Both start up time and shot to shot time is...

Olympus Stylus 760

 

Used it for about 6 months, image quality is very good for a low-end P&S. Pics are very very sharp, color is good. As matter of fact, this camera takes better pic than my other camera - Nikon P4.

Product Specifications

Life is a blur. Your images should be crisp and clear. The 7.1 megapixel Stylus 760 digital camera combines an impressive suite of features previously unavailable in a single Olympus model. New Dual Image Stabilization technology compensates for camera shake and freezes action with stunning clarity. The camera's All-Weather design seals out moisture so you can safely shoot in the elements. With Bright Capture Technology, you'll get vivid images in low light, without a flash. And share all your great shots on the 2.5" Wide-View LCD, featuring a backlight boost button for enhanced visibility even in direct sunlight.
