Olympus Stylus 710

 

Included Memory: On Board, Media Format: xD-Picture Card, Type: Ultracompact, Maximum Resolution: 3072 x 2304 pixel...

Very portable. Light weight. Guide mode lets you quickly change settings. Stylish design.

Performance and picture quality just mediocre. Some shutter lag. Subpar video capabilities.

The Olympus Stylus 710 is a stylish package that needs better performance and picture quality.

Olympus mju 700 review

 

The Olympus Mju 700 (known as the Stylus 700 Digital in the USA) was officially launched at the beginning of this year and is a member of the internationally renowned Mju family. The analogue version of the Mju was a world wide success and this fact...

With the Olympus Mju 700, Olympus offers high resolution to consumers in search of a user friendly, compact design camera. 7.1 Megapixels is a lot for the average consumer and I suspect this has more to do with 'the more pixels, the better the picture'...

How does this stylish Stylus perform in the very crowded ultra-compact field? Find out now in our review

Stylish, compact, water and scratch resistant body ; Large 2.5" LCD display is visible in low light (though see issues below) ; Very good performance ; Tons of scene modes ; Support for underwater cases ; Nice in-camera guide/help system ; Very good...

While there are some nice features on the Stylus 710, I was ultimately disappointed with its photo quality, which is the most important feature on any camera. If you're only going to be making 4 x 6 prints and can live with the flaws I mentioned in...

Olympus MJU 700 Digital Camera Review

 

Out of the box the camera looks different to most on the market with its odd shaped yet groovy design, with the right hand (while holding) side being thicker than the left. However this does not feel in any way awkward to hold and sits quite snugly in...

First up, the general functionality, control layout and menu system on the camera are all positioned where they should be… where your right thumb sits for easy access

Olympus Stylus 710

 

Olympus' answer to increasingly small cameras is to make their line of compact cameras even more compact. And here it is. The Stylus 710 has 7 megapixels, a 2.5 inch LCD, 3x optical zoom and a weatherproof body. However, it has no manual controls and...

7 megapixels in an all-weather body ; Large LCD with good visibility ; Fast performance - until the buffer fills ; A great big collection of scene modes ; Camera guide and help

No manual controls ; Slow lens (Aperture range one of the worst I've ever seen) ; Low resolution LCD ; Sub-standard low-light focusing ; Slow (for "normal" mode) and limited continuous shooting ; No real optical image stabilization ; Not-even-close 8...

The Stylus 710 has 7 megapixels in a stylish and somewhat sturdy all-weather body which resists scratches. Though it has nice things like a large LCD with good visibility, there always seems to be a downside to every positive thing on the Stylus 710....

The Stylus 710 ($349) is the latest addition to Olympus' line of ultra-compact, weatherproof cameras. Being 0.8 inches thick, the 710 is the thinnest camera yet in the Stylus series. Other features on the camera include a 7.1 Megapixel CCD, 3X optical...

Olympus Stylus 710 Digital Camera Review

 

At first glance, the Olympus Stylus 710 is very stylish and more compact than expected.

Very stylish and weatherproof at the same time ; High quality construction ; Nice LCD, visible in direct sunlight (adjustable brightness, gains up) ; Full Auto and Program Auto mode (you can change ISO, white balance, etc) ; 3.7 fps high speed...

Hard to hold ; High noise levels above ISO 100 ; Low frame rate on movies ; Battery life unimpressive

The Olympus Stylus 710 is an attractive camera that provides the weatherproofing that the Stylus line is known for. A quite capable camera, it captures nice pictures with accurate color and good exposure. It does suffer from high noise when the...
