Olympus Tough 770SW

 

Are you tough enough? This is the question Olympus keeps asking the models in the Tough series of cameras, and apparently the answer is no, because th...

Basically everything proof, macro light for close up photography, good ; noise performance at ISO 100

Some under sharpening issues, slow burst mode, slow shutter speed

Designed specifically for a niche market, the Tough 770SW is an ideal camera for those into the rougher side of life. Its pictures aren't the best we've seen, but for some that isn't the primary concern when buying a camera, and for those people this...

Olympus' Tough 770SW might not produce perfect images, but you'd be hard pressed to find a compact camera as tough as this one.

Camera is waterproof to 10 metres ; Shock resistant to short drops and mild impact

No manual exposure controls ; Slightly soft images

Image quality Images from the Tough 770SW weren't perfect, but that's not surprising given this camera is built more for extreme durability than optical purity. For example, our test images looked slightly soft overall and had more image artifacts than...

This olympus camera is great. I was bought this camera i think on my summer vacations. Its image quality is great. I many times hear a praise about canon eos-1d that its result is extremely good but its very pricey. I have already a camera which is...

Solid image quality ; Attractive design ; Anti-shake capabilities ; Excellent video specs ; Zippy performance

On/off button a bit awkward

Very tought waterproof and shockproof camera, yet still lightweight and small. The picture quality is quite good and I found indoor photo quality and in low-light photos were reasonable. The range of scene modes are great, however there is no dedicated...

Waterproof, shockproof, crushproof, good quality photos, great variety of scene modes, easy to use (except for the menus). The pros outweigh the cons

Silly menu setup and user interface, no dedicated scene mode button, can be a little slow to process things, no manual exposure settings. No complaints about movie mode quality as that is not what I buy a still camera for, however you have to press at...

It's really tough. Value for money. It's also stylish. Great outdoor pictures.

Very well built; strong. Great LCD screen. The torch included

Only 3x optical zoom. No manual white balance. Bad indoor pictures. Movie only 15 fps. Average battery

Taken over 500 holiday snaps with it. Underwater, outdoor, indoor and indoor with no flash- all great shots. Extreemly high ISO means no flash, and acceptable image quality for 6x4cm only prints

Unbreakable. It's the Landcruiser of digital cameras. Underwater photos alone are worth purchasing this camera

No optical image stabilisation

Its not heavy at all, its lighter then most other cameras. The menu design isnt the best, but you get used to it. The picture quality is wonderful and sharp, with colors generally vibrant. Picture noise is minimal until you go past ISO400...

Its near invincible. I dare you to try and break it. Great photo quality generally(a few photos were a tad washed out) Small size

only 3x optical zoom, menu takes some getting used to, no included memory card, only 18mb internal memory

Great for the beach but that's about it. It's a heavy thing that takes flat pictures with a badly designed menu system, going deep into it just to get Vid clips is more than annoying, Also the auto white balance simply does not work, requiring manual...

Bomb proof and waterproof just as the ads say

Flat pictures, annoying menu system, Auto white Bal, poor
