Olympus µ 720SW - Rugged Digital Camera - Test Shots - Exposure Evaluation

Summary

Our Score:

6

This page consists of resized images so that you can evaluate the overall exposure.

The wide end of the zoom range is equivalent to 38mm which is below average for a 3x zoom camera, and is quite blurry at the corners of the frame. In HQ mode compression artefacts rob the image of a lot of fine detail.

----

The long end if the zoom is equivalent to 114mm. For a laugh compare this shot to the similar image from my Sony Alpha DSLR review.

These small Olympus cameras are not completely knock proof. Mine was in my pocket which got a sideways clunk and cracked the screen. Cost me £128 to fix. When it next went for a swim it filled with water and never worked again. It is back with Olympus. Will update on response but if it is bad news I'm composing a song and video for YouTube about my shock and waterproof camera which is not.
