Olympus Stylus 750 Review

Olympus Stylus 750

The Olympus stylus 750 is extremely lightweight with a big review screen. It is fairly easy to operate and learn powered with a lot of customization features. It is also supplied with a user manual and the onboard help menu. The picture quality is very sharp with vivid colors both indoors and outdoors when assisted with scene settings, macro, and super macro. The stylus 750 is packed with the bright capture technology for low light shooting and the resultant picture quality may well give its competitors a shiver. The movie feature with Stylus 750 can be easily activated. The biggest advantage with Olympus Stylus 750 is that it is weather proof. It can survive in harsh weather conditions and probably will not die out with some snow or rain spilled on it. This may offer tremendous advantage to photo enthusiasts who want to stop at nothing. It is available in trendy black and elegant silver outer case.

The 750 are bundled with the Dual Image Stabilization feature i.e. mechanical CCD shift and Digital Image Stabilization. This advanced imaging solution additionally prevents the blur caused by camera shake and moving subjects and produces quality images. However, the LCD screen fades in bright light making it difficult to shoot especially in sunlight. Another problem is that the screen is not anti reflective and therefore has to be repeatedly adjusted to avoid reflection. The Stylus 750 is not equipped with an optical viewfinder leaving photographers only the LCD mode to view subjects. This is the main reason that the battery life would not last long enough to survive more than a day. The 750 stylus is a little slow in operation and there aren’t many manual controls for customized settings either.

Overall, the stylus 750 stands apart among its competitors with its weatherproof feature and dual image stabilization.
