Digital Camera Review Test Appareil Photo Numerique Prueba camara digital Digitale Camera Test Dijital Kamera Incelemeleri Digitalkamera Test Digitalkamera Stylus 720 SW review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Olympus Stylus 720 SW digital camera review. The Olympus 720 SW incorporates 7.1 million pixels and a precision 3x zoom lens. The metal-bodied Olympus Stylus 720SW camera is available in a choice of three sharp colours: Dusky Pink, Polar Blue and Steel Silver. Olympus 720 SW users can boost the camera's waterproof capabilities from 3m to an incredible 40m with the optional PT-033 underwater case. Combined with the bright, 3x zoom lens (equivalent to 38-114mm on a 35mm camera) photographers benefit from the large 6.4 cm LCD monitor that incorporates the innovative Bright-Capture Technology.

According to Joshua Waller: "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 photos taking around one second or less before displaying when going from photo to photo, however the zoom is very quick. The Olympus Stylus 720 SW camera shutter response seemed very quick when pre-focused, with a response time of around 0.1 seconds.

Olympus Stylus 720SW camera - Ergonomics
Joshua continues: "The buttons are fairly easy to use, and they are in a good position. There aren't too many buttons on the camera, which should make it simpler to master the cameras basic functions. The buttons feel okay, although some may find them small, especially the power button. The shutter release is good. The four-way controller could be labelled more clearly; however, this may have made the camera appear less stylish. I thought the camera felt quite good ergonomically, although there is no handgrip on the front of the camera, and a small bit at the back sticks out to act as a thumb grip."

Olympus Stylus 720SW digital camera - Image quality
"Outside, the camera has good colour, with good saturation and contrast. There was good detail although some images seemed a little soft. Noise seemed low for ISO100 photos. I turned up the quality to maximum to avoid jpeg artefacts. Exposure seemed good with detail visible in the light, and darker areas. Images had generally low noise, at most ISO settings up to ISO200. Images were slightly soft straight from the camera and could benefit from sharpening. Purple fringing was quite low.", concludes Joshua.
