No-Fuss Point-and-Shoot Camera

All automatic features. Comfortable design. Good image stabilization ; Images are too soft. No manual controls

Images are too soft. No manual controls

As a no-nonsense compact shooter, the Stylus 750 works. However, for the same price, you can find a camera with more features and better image quality.

Olympus Stylus 750

 

Stylus is storied name in Olympus history, with the company selling zillions of the weather resistant film and digital cameras over the years. The beauty of the Stylus is its ability to be taken almost anywhere. If you're out on a rainy day, you can...

5x optical zoom; slim; weather-resistant case; mechanical (not digital) image stabilization

Pokey response; high noise levels; lackluster picture quality

it's tough for me to recommend this camera because the overall quality of the photos lags behind the leaders.

This slim, waterproof camera is rugged and offers antishake, but battery life and image quality are middle-of-the-road.

Image stabilization, Waterproof case

Low battery life, Lacks manual controls

Olympus Stylus 750 Digital Camera (7.1MP, 3072x2304, 5x Opt, 17MB Internal Memory, SD Slot)

 

Based on the Stylus 750's features and sturdy design (it costs $400 as of 10/6/06), this camera is particularly suitable for casual photographers who spend a good amount of time shooting outdoors. For one thing, it's a slick piece of hardware. The...

Image stabilization ; Waterproof case

Low battery life ; Lacks manual controls

The Stylus 750 is weatherproof and offers image stabilization, but it's expensive considering its lack of manual settings.

Olympus Stylus 750 (black)

 

The Stylus 750's sturdy metal body is a gentle wedge shape, making the camera extremely comfortable for one-handed use. However, the tapered left side makes it even more awkward for left-handed users than most point-and-shoots. The controls are mostly...

Decent image quality; comfortable design.

No manual exposure controls; sluggish performance.

It's a bit slow and lacks manual exposure controls, but the Olympus Stylus 750 is still a very nice snapshot camera.

Olympus Stylus 750 Digital Camera - Express Review

 

The Olympus Stylus 750 is designed to go anywhere the average enthusiast photographer is likely to want to go. Featuring a nicely sculpted, pocket-friendly, all-weather body with dual-mode image stabilization, the Stylus 750 features an Olympus-branded...

Stylish, ultra-compact design ; Large 2.5 inch LCD ; All-weather seals and gaskets ; Optional underwater case, with modes to match ; 7.1 megapixels of detail ; 5x optical zoom with up to 28x total zoom ; Dual image stabilization (sensor-based and...

LCD very hard to read outdoors ; Blurred images using stabilization and digital zoom ; Very small, oddly shaped control buttons ; Fairly dramatic softening in the corners and sides of images ; Very stiff Shutter button ; An awkward menu system ; No...

The Olympus Stylus 750 also has a 2.5 inch LCD display with a higher-than-average resolution of 215,000 pixels. As is common on many digicams these days, this LCD is the sole method of framing images, as the Olympus 750 forgoes any form of optical...

The Stylus 750 has a slightly cheaper sibling, known as the Stylus 740. It costs $50 less, and has the same features as the 750 except for image stabilization

5X zoom in a compact, stylish, all-weather body (that comes in four colors no less) ; Optical image stabilization ; Large, sharp 2.5" LCD display; easy to see in low light (but see issue below) ; Tons of scene modes ; Live histogram in record mode ;...

Softness around edges of frame; fuzzy details ; Redeye a big problem ; LCD difficult to see outdoors ; No optical viewfinder ; No AF-assist lamp; poor low light focusing ; No manual controls ; Unimpressive movie and continuous shooting modes ; Below...

The Olympus Stylus 750 is a camera that I really wanted to like, but it just doesn't do it for me. It's okay for the point-and-shoot crowd who will be making small prints, but my thought is: why bother when there are cameras that can do the same things...

Olympus Stylus 750 Digital Camera Review

 

The Olympus Stylus 750 was one of four new cameras added to Olympus' weatherproof Stylus line back in August (the others were the 730, 740, and 1000).

nice looks ; helpful guide feature ; weatherpoof (water resistant, dust proof) ; 5x optical zoom ; optical image stabilization ; average image quality

only 15 fps movie capture ; Olympus menu system takes some getting used to ; average battery life (you'll probably want a spare battery for a week-long vacation)

Whenever someone is looking for weatherproof camera, an Olympus Stylus model always gets a mention.  Not only are they protected against the elements (with rubber gaskets), but they're very stylish, sturdy and compact. 

Product Specifications

The irresistible Stylus line takes another leap forward in digital technology. The 750 incorporates Dual Image Stabilization - mechanical CCD shift and Digital Image Stabilization. This advanced imaging solution further prevents the blur caused by camera shake and moving subjects. You'll love the 750's thin, sleek design and the powerful 5x optical zoom.
