Olympus Stylus Verve

 

Supplied accessories may differ in each country or area

Good resolution for a camera of this class, Bright, vivid and generally pleasing results, Weatherproof, Excellent build quality, Attractive design and remarkably good handling, Lots of scene/subject modes, Generally reliable exposure, Fast, reliable...

Images over-sharpened and too contrasty for some tastes, Tendency to under-expose in bright high contrast scenes, Slow flash recycling, Images shot at over ISO 64 fairly noisy, No exposure information in record or playback modes, Some basic controls...

As a straightforward point and shoot camera the Stylus Verve does a perfectly good job at a competitive price point.

Olympus Stylus Verve Digital Camera Camera

 

The 4-megapixel Olympus Stylus Verve provides more form than function. Its colorful case is unique and weatherproof, but its performance is so-so.

As for image quality, this camera performed in the bottom third of our currently tested point-and-shoots. The Stylus Verve received its worst scores in our sharpness and distortion tests and performed squarely in the middle in our exposure tests. In...

Olympus Stylus Verve

 

The Olympus Stylus Verve is certainly one of the cooler-looking ultracompact digital cameras on the market today. And it's full of nice design touches, like a weather-resistant body, and a built-in lens cover that can't accidentally be pushed open. But...

Cool design, available in different colors. Excellent selection of scene modes and sample images. Menu structure is easy to navigate. Weather-resistant body.

Zoom is only 2X. Images lack crispness and show significant noise. LCD is choppy when panning, no optical viewfinder. Movie mode is disappointing.

Olympus Stylus Verve review

 

Olympus Stylus Verve The Olympus Stylus Verve's sexy Euro design is sure to attract the attention of snapshooters using more-conventional digital compacts, but so-so image quality and middle-of-the-road performance hamper this study in style over...

Eye-catching design; selection of camera colors; weatherproof body; lots of scene modes and special effects such as fish-eye distortion.

No optical viewfinder; zoom limited to 2X; awkward shape precludes one-handed shooting; slow autofocus in dim light; mediocre image quality.

A sexy design can't overcome the average picture quality and mediocre performance of this ultracompact 4-megapixel shooter.

Olympus Stylus Verve

 

The Olympus Stylus Verve is a compact, fashionable and all-weather, 4.0-megapixel digital camera that's available in 6 brilliant designer colors. Instead of the typical "boxy" body, the Verve sports rounded corners and a smooth contoured shape.

Bottom line - the Verve is a great addition to Olympus' Stylus line. We feel it will make a great vacation or outdoors camera, especially if you plan on getting a little wet! And it's not too expensive with an MSRP of $349. There are just two things you'l
