Olympus 720SW camera - ISO & Noise |
According to Yin Wong: "Noise seems to be visible at all ISO levels, and above ISO 64 and ISO 100, there seems to be very aggressive noise reduction. ISO 200 is usable especially in regular-sized 4x6 in. prints. Above ISO 200, the presence of noise takes the form of colored splotches. Generally, with CCD image sensors like in the Olympus 720SW, noise usually becomes more prominent at slow shutter speeds. Chromatic aberration is present in everyday high contrast shots.
Olympus Stylus 720SW digital camera - Waterproof housing
Yin Wong continues: "Shock proofing is only one of the attractive attribute of the Olympus 720 SW. It is also waterproof [other Stylus models are only certified "weatherproof"] down to a depth of 10 feet for up to 1 hour. We have also verified that the camera can be dunked under water [we spent 4 days at the beach and took it swimming] without adverse effect but have not tested the "up to 1 hour" part [after every saltwater use, we rinsed it well and soaked it for about 10 min. in a tub of fresh tap water].

Photoxels was founded in 2002 by MyKhanh Wong (Owner, Editor) and Yin Wong (Contributing Editor), the editors behind Photoxels. In 2001, we went on the Web to learn about digital cameras like everyone else. But it seems that the more we read about digital cameras, the more reviews we scrutinized, and the more we searched... the more confused we became. If we were somewhat confused about which digital cameras to buy before visiting the digital camera review sites, we became even more confused after reading most of the (very) technical reviews. Slowly, one article and one review at a time, we pieced together what were really important to know about digital cameras and clarified many of the digital photography-related terminology. We decided to share what we learned on the Internet, and Photoxels was born.
