Olympus Stylus 760 Reviews

TrustedReviews reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
“In most respects the Olympus mju 760 is a typical feature-starved budget-priced 3x zoom pocket compact, but superior build quality, stylish design, excellent low-light focusing and of course its weatherproof body set it apart from the crowd. Image quality is no better than most cameras in its class, but no worse either. As a basic snapshot camera it offers excellent value for money.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

GoodGearGuide reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
“During our speed tests, the MJU 760′s performance was a mixed bag. Its shutter lag was a little sluggish, at 0.12 of a second, but its shot-to-shot time of one second, and power up time of 2.2 seconds were more impressive…One of the best things about Olympus cameras is the controls and interface. They are extremely intuitive, with a simple function wheel and directional pad setup..”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Cameras.UK reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
“You are not exactly spoilt for choice if you would like a camera you can take out in the rain. The Olympus MJU 760 does not quite hit the spot for me without being a poor digital camera. A 20% all round improvement wouldn’t go amiss with this range of cameras…The Olympus MJU 760 falls short in my view when it comes to the all important picture quality. Weatherproof digital cameras are few and far between, so it is a shame to see it is unable to quite hit the heights some of its rivals can. ”
Rating: ★★★★☆

Pocket-Lint reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
..”the lens performance is not compromised. Detail is plentiful, colour is well rendered, and white balance is very good with only slight issues in the auto mode when indoors under mixed lighting where an odd orange cast is evident. One further niggle however is a big contrast loss when shooting backlit scenes….The combination of a very pretty and pocketable camera you can use in almost all weathers makes the Mju 760 a tempting treat. Its £200 price tag is attractive too and providing you don’t expect to make big prints from higher sensitivity shots, the Olympus Mju 760 is a great little compact..”

ImagingResource reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
“Olympus’s Stylus 760 camera is a very handy size, and can produce good pictures under the right conditions. In my testing though, I was expecting more from its image stabilization system…. All in all, the Olympus 760 is a stylish and responsive camera, with splash resistance thrown in for good measure, and helpful features in the form of its Guide mode and helpful explanations in its menu system. If Olympus could just put a good anti-reflection coating on its LCD, I think they’d have a winner, but as it is, it counts as a near miss in my book.”

Steve’sDigicams reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
“The 760′s ergonomics are excellent. It is very compact, yet its wedge shape makes it easy to hold. The controls are well placed and functional, allowing your thumb to fall over them naturally…The image quality could be better and unfortunately it uses the incredibly slow xD memory cards that Olympus and Fujifilm designed (we hope someday they’ll switch to SD). If you’re in the market for a versatile little pocket-digicam that you can take out into the rain, look no further. With an MSRP of about $249.99, we feel it offers an outstanding value and should be a very popular model this year. ”

CNET reviews the Olympus Stylus 760 and writes;
“Our testing yielded reasonably sharp photos with well-resolved details in the center, although there were a few spots where postprocessing smeared some edges–a common problem in compacts. Colors tended to be a bit too cool but appropriately saturated, and measured noise was surprisingly low, appearing as only a moderate grain even at ISO 800. At ISO 1,600, however, the photos exploded with noise-driven speckles and fuzz. As you’d expect from the narrow, short-range zoom lens, distortion was almost nonexistent, barreling only slightly at the edges at its widest…The bottom line: The Olympus Stylus 760 is a great choice if you just want a small, light, weather-resistant camera, but beware of image flaws.”

I’ve just had an Olympus Stylus 760 for Christmas. But on downloading video clips to PC I find that Windows shuts down, as fatal error caused whenever video clips are included in the photo download to PC. If I copy to C drive file, and try to run the video clip Windows shuts down (DEP message). Similarly I have copied to a memory stick, tried to view the video clip and again Windows Explorer shuts down. My previous Olympus mju mini never caused me any problems with video clips, what is the problem here? Any advice appreciated. Thanks.
