Steve’sDigicams reviews the Olympus Stylus 7040 and writes;
“Looking at our outdoor sample images, you can see that the camera gives you a good exposure and pleasing colors. However, when viewing the photos at 100%, there is a noticeable amount on noise in the image. With an ISO of 64, the image should not show any noise. “

PhotographyBlog reviews the Olympus Stylus 7040 and writes;
“For the most part, ISO 200 is OK and ISO 400 is usable, but sometimes you can easily see noise at the lowest settings too…, the Olympus mju 7040 works quite well in the field, as long as you don’t want to shoot moving targets in low light, a task almost no digital compact camera is suited to anyway.”

Great for the price | Rating: ★★★★☆
“I bought this to replace an older, 6 mp camera, and it is great. picture clarity is awesome, battery life seems to be very good, and it is EASY to use. The camera has more optical zoom than I have ever seen on a camera its size, and a great macro setting….overall, I highly recommend this camera to anyone looking for a new personal or easy to use small business camera. ” – By Theresa
