Olympus Stylus-7010


Despite its 7x zoom lens, the 12-Megapixel Olympus Stylus 7010 ($199.99 direct) is a tough sell when you consider that the same-price Kodak EasyShare M580 ($199.99, ) offers all of the Stylus' features, and then some, along with better image quality....

7x optical zoom in thin body. Unique auto-focus can lock onto and tracks moving objects. Fast lens motor provides speedy zooming

Soft images. Noticeable shutter lag. No HD Video capture. Proprietary USB and AV connections

The Olympus Stylus-7010 packs a 7x zoom into its small body, but soft images and a lack of HD video recording hold this budget camera back.

Olympus Stylus 7010 Review


Olympus has been known for bringing camera concepts down to size - the original half-frame Pen, their latest Micro Four Thirds efforts, and now the Stylus 7010.

Long 7x zoom ; Super thin, ultra-compact ; Faithful color reproduction

No manual exposure ; Noisy images ; Slightly slow shot-to-shot

Noise levels are quite reasonable up to ISO 200, but distortion levels rise as sensitivity rises. At ISO 400 and higher, noise is noticeably above average.

Great Camera


Really, really like this camera. Made a great Christmas gift for my mother who also was very impressed.

Coming from my Olympus 1010 I had high hopes this camera would be somewhat more refined, sure it enough it is. Still has great picture quality, amazing zoom, with an easier to use GUI interface and iAuto. All packed in a true front shirt pocket size....

It'd be nice if it came with a case, they are only a few dollars extra but you'd think for that cost they'd include one and perhaps gain some name recognition

Fragile as an egg


My first and last Olympus purchase

Good optical zoom & decent pictures for a point and shoot

Dropped it less than 3 inches from desktop onto edge of keyboard and shattered this 'extra special' hypercrystal LCD. I am in disbelief as my last 2 Canon digital cameras withstood much more serious abuse without a hiccup
