Olympus Stylus Digital 830

 

The Stylus 830 features Dual Image Stabilization, which combines mechanical Sensor-Shift Stabilization with Digital Image Stabilization (High ISO) to compensate for both camera shake and moving subjects. The camera also offers a 5x optical zoom to...

Stylus digital cameras are renowned for their high performance, style and ability to withstand the elements. The Stylus 830, Stylus 820 and Stylus 1200 feature light-weight metal bodies with rubber gaskets throughout the interior to ensure that rain,...

Long zoom and sensor-shift image stabilization

 

The ultra-compact 830 is an interesting addition to the Stylus line. You get an attractive, handy 8-megapixel point & shoot camera that comes in a variety of cool colors. But it costs a full $80 more than the seemingly identical Olympus Stylus 820 that...

5X optical zoom, Dual image stabilization, 640 x 480 movies at a full 30 fps, Advanced face detection mode, Weatherproof body, Digital image stabilization, Underwater modes, PreSet Shooting Mode lets you select best setting

No voice recording mode, xD-Picture card harder to fnd and more expensive, Smaller screen and less onboard memory

Olympus Stylus 830 digital camera Review and Prices

 

Olympus has packed a lot of punch into its ultra-compact, beginner-level digital camera, the Stylus 830. And if you can find this model for quite a bit less than its $299 suggested price -- which you probably will be able to do -- you'll have a great...

Good value, great image quality, 5X optical zoom lens, image stabilization, stylish camera body, sharp and bright LCD

Layout of controls can be a problem for some people, battery life can be less than expected

Olympus Stylus 830

 

The 8-megapixel Olympus Stylus 830 combines an extended 5x optical zoom lens with the slim case of a pocket-friendly point-and-shoot. Few current digital cameras combine the same skinny body with an extended zoom lens. The Stylus 830 features a...

Although it has impressive specs, the Stylus 830 fails to deliver in image quality. Colors are dramatically inaccurate, especially yellows, greens, and blues. This makes photos of blue skies and green foliage look dull. White balance is equally bad,...

Olympus Stylus 830 Review

 

The world of mid-level compact point and shoots is an increasingly crowded place, and the list of highly competent ones seems to have grown exponentially. With its well regarded all-weather technology, the 8 megapixel, 5x zoom Olympus Stylus 830 would...

All-weather construction, Fast, fast, fast, Light on the saturation, sharpening, Good macro modes

Difficult user interface, Soft images, Weak and inconsistent battery life, Frightening flash unit

"Guide" sort of guides you through various scenarios and sets the camera properly. This mode also lets you preview a scene through a multi-frame window that shows how the picture looks with four different settings. You then pick what suits you best

Olympus mju 830

 

With the sort of weather we've been having lately, a rainproof camera should sell well.

(£215). Its closest competition may be the new Nikon CoolPix S510, also £190, although that camera has only a 3x zoom lens and isn't weatherproof.
