Digital Camera Review Test Appareil Photo Numerique Prueba camara digital Digitale Camera Test Dijital Kamera Incelemeleri Digitalkamera Test Digitalkamera Stylus 740 review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Olympus Stylus 740 digital camera review. The versatile 5x, 1:3.3-5.0 zoom lens on the Olympus Mju 740 is equivalent to 36-180mm on a 35mm camera, great for capturing more general scenes and then zooming in to specific details. Inside the Olympus Mju 740 is a beast of a lens and a 7.1 million pixel CCD that together deliver razor-sharp photographs. Photos and movie files can be stored either on the cameras’ internal memories or on optional xD-Picture Cards. Fitting in with today’s more active lifestyles, an underwater case is available as well. The Olympus PT-034 Underwater Case will take the camera down to depths of 40m.

According to Joshua Waller: "To turn the camera on, the power button is pressed and is ready for taking photos when the light stops flashing (about 1.5 seconds). The mode dial rotates through Playback, Program, Anti-shake, Scene, Guide and Video. The Menu button reveals options dependant on the mode selected. The +/- allows adjustment of Exposure Value. The Print button can be used when connected to a PictBridge compatible printer, or when in a shooting mode, to toggle to Playback. The Macro button toggles through the macro modes, to previous image in playback, or pan left in Zoom playback."

Olympus Stylus 740 digital camera - Responsiveness
Joshua continues: "The camera is fairly quick to switch on and take photos, being ready in just under two seconds. Focusing seemed fairly quick (under 1 second in low light). The playback mode is a bit sluggish with large files, taking a little less than one second before displaying when going between photos (this does depend on image size) - however the zoom is very quick. The camera shutter response seemed very quick when pre-focused, with a time of around 0.1 seconds."

Olympus 740 compact camera - Image quality
"Image quality was generally good, with good colour, contrast, and detail, although images were slightly soft straight from the camera and could benefit from sharpening. Saturation was slightly lower than I would have liked to see (this can be increased by using some of the scene modes, or Edit in playback mode), as a comparison the Olympus SP-320 had higher saturation on its default settings. Images had generally low noise at most ISO settings up to ISO200. Purple fringing was low in most photos, but can be seen in some extreme test cases near the corner of the wide-angle shots when examined closely."
