Olympus Olympus Stylus 1000

 

Olympus's Stylus 1000 ($350 as of February 15, 2007) is one of a handful of weather-resistant digital cameras built for times when things get a little damp. But while the Stylus 1000 is an all-weather model, it's not waterproof, so don't take it...

Water-resistant body ; Useful help system selects settings

LCD is difficult to see in bright light ; Antishake simply boosts the ISO setting

The durable Stylus 1000 is water-resistant and its help system is useful, but its antishake system is unimpressive.

Olympus Stylus 1000 review

 

You can't have everything, especially among Olympus compact cameras. While they have plenty of similar cameras that serve specific purposes, there's no catch-all, high-end, great-at-everything camera. The Olympus Stylus 720SW offers waterproof...

Decent image quality at low sensitivity; helpful low-light features.

Noisy at high sensitivity; distinct purple fringing; sluggish; burst and high-ISO modes only shoot at half-resolution or lower.

This small 10-megapixel shooter can produce great shots if the scene is well lit, but watch out for noise at about ISO 200.

Olympus Stylus 1000 Digital Camera - Full Review

 

One of the better Stylus models, the Stylus 1000 adds high resolution with sensor sensitivity up to ISO 6,400 and a comfortable control button layout. With very low lens distortion and a 15x combined optical and digital zoom range, not much escapes it....

Stylish, ultra-compact design ; Large 2.5 inch LCD with high resolution ; All-weather seals and gaskets ; 10 megapixels of detail ; Live histogram ; Help system for Menu items ; Guide mode for photo solutions ; In-camera editing of red-eye, blur, and...

LCD hard to read outdoors ; No autofocus assist lamp ; Tendency to oversaturated color, and blow out highlights ; High ISO settings of limited value compared the marketing attention they're given ; Poor balance of highlights and shadows, resulting in...

The Olympus Stylus 1000 features a 1/1.8 inches CCD imager with a resolution of 10 megapixels, the highest of any Stylus digital camera to date. This is coupled with an Olympus-branded 3x optical zoom lens with a pretty standard 35 to 105mm equivalent...

Olympus Stylus 1000 Digital Camera Review

 

The Olympus Stylus 1000 features 10 megapixel capture resolution, a 3x optical zoom, and a 2.5 inch LCD.  As a member of the Stylus line, the camera is also “weatherproof”.  Rubber gaskets and O-rings provide water resistance and dust proofing.

The mju 1000 definitely looks the part, but does it have the image quality to match?

Olympus Mju 1000

 

This small 10-megapixel shooter can produce great shots if the scene is well lit, but watch out for noise at about ISO 200.

Decent image quality at low sensitivity ; Helpful low-light features

Noisy at high sensitivity ; Distinct purple fringing ; Sluggish ; Burst and high-ISO modes only shoot at half-resolution or lower

The Olympus Mju 1000 offers high-resolution images and a water-resistant metal body. Unfortunately, noise issues and slow performance mean poor photos in low light. Unless splashability is a major factor in your purchase, you might want to look at...
