Olympus Stylus 770 SW Review

 

There is no digital camera available like the Olympus Stylus 770SW.

Stylus Stylus 770 SW

 

The two letters at the end of the Olympus Stylus 770 SW's name indicate that it's shockproof and waterproof, without the need for an optional housing. I found that it lives up to its name, but I still wouldn't buy it for use underwater.

Waterproof and shockproof Quick startup

LCD is hard to see underwater No optical viewfinder

In our image-quality tests, the Stylus 770 SW earned near-average scores for most measures but received slightly above-average marks for color accuracy and exposure accuracy. It took 246 shots on one charge over 2 hours, 15 minutes, which doesn't sound...

Review: Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera

 

This camera is rugged and reasonably good looking. And that's pretty much where the praise runs out.

Olympus Stylus 770 SW

 

This Stylus for Olympus won't be washed up when things gets wet.

Both waterproof and shockproof. Decent performance.

Confusing menus. Mediocre image and video quality. Pricey for an ultracompact.

Review: Olympus Stylus Zoom 770 SW

 

The expression on the face of that puffer fish? Awesome. Our crayon and napkin illustration for the folks back home? Less so. Good thing for...

Military and industrial certified for dust, shock, and liquid immersion. Truly pocket-sized. Bright 2.5 LCD screen is great outside. On-screen depth information for underwater shooting. Four different modes for shooting underwater

No manual exposure controls. Only crushproof up to 220lbs-no running this cam over with your car. Lengthy shutter lag when shooting in Normal mode. Video capture tricky to initialize. Only supports xD media

Olympus Stylus 770SW review

 

There aren't many waterproof compact cameras out there, let alone one made to survive drops of up to 5 feet. Olympus designed its 7.1-megapixel Stylus 770SW to do just that, providing real competition for Pentax's waterproof Optio W30 . By its tough...

Camera is waterproof to 32 feet; shock resistant to short drops and mild impact.

No manual exposure controls; slightly soft images

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

Olympus Stylus 770 SW Digital Camera - Hands-On Preview

 

It's unclear whether consumers realized the significance of last year's Olympus Stylus 720 SW introduction. For those who missed it, Olympus underscores that significance in 2007 with the improved Stylus 770 SW. The Olympus 770 SW goes deeper...

Shockproof. Waterproof. Freezeproof. Crushproof.

 

As far as diving goes, the Olympus Stylus 770 SW is a terrific companion. We wouldn't take it on a really deep dive, but anything that'll take you to perhaps 70 feet is apparently okay. We recommend, of course, that you observe the 33 foot depth limit,...

Real diving now possible with new 33 feet depth limit, Can actually handle depths of 66 feet and more (not recommended, but we tested it), Inherent waterproofing provides peace of mind when handling in/around water, Can survive 5-foot drops and 14...

Use of underwater wide-angle modes requires practice, Strictly point & shoot, Elegant metal body easily gets scratched, Wish it'd fit into the PT-033 case, Need better handstrap for underwater use, Uses often hard-to-find xD-Picture Card
