Olympus Stylus 720 SW reviews

CNET has reviewed the Olympus Stylus 720-SW and write: “The 720-SW performed well but not exceptionally during our tests; for most photographic purposes it’s quite well suited, although we did notice that the shutter was a touch sluggish when attempting any kind of quick photography. Despite the claims of the BrightCapture technology, we found that the camera also tended to overfill any dark scenes with its admittedly dazzling flash, leading to more than a few washed out pictures.”

Steves digicams has reviewed the Olympus Stylus 720 SW and write: “the Stylus 720 SW is a tempting digicam in the weather resistant/water proof class. While Olympus claims it is also “Shock Proof” up to 5 feet, we opted not to test this feature; we’ll take their word for it. The camera’s 7-megapixel SHQ images have plenty of resolution to create high-quality prints up to 13×19 inches or larger. The only real issues we had were with the poor position of the lens and the below average results of its VGA movie mode. With an MSRP of $399, it offers a great value for a 7-megapixel underwater capable digicam.”

Digital Camera Info has published a Olympus Stylus 720 SW review and write: “Perhaps the camera’s best asset is its thick metal body: the Olympus Stylus 720SW can be dropped from 5 feet without incident because of its floating inner circuitry and sturdy outer body. This digital camera, with a waterproof classification that allows it to be immersed for an hour in 10 feet of water, also takes the all-weather Stylus line to a new level. On paper, the Olympus Stylus 720SW looks extremely attractive. In practice, however, many of its features fail to impress.”
