Olympus Stylus 1030SW
16 September 2009
Conclusion: The tough, waterproof Olympus Stylus 1030SW takes terrific pictures in practically any situation including treacherous weather or terrain, but if you're looking for speed, you may be disappointed by significant shutter lag and recycle times.
Pros: Rugged and waterproof. Takes underwater pictures and video. Terrific image quality.
Cons: Significant shutter lag and long recycle times between shots. Uses xD-Picture Cards, which are limited to 2GB storage. (Can use microSD cards too but requires an adapter to do so.)
Summary: You don't have to climb Mt. Olympus to appreciate the 1030 SW. Its durability and ability to capture sharp photos in a wide variety of shooting conditions makes it a versatile camera for travelers and thrill-seekers alike.
Pros: Rugged yet sleek design, Simple interface, Speedy performance, Records smooth video
Cons: No optical image stabilization, Reds and pinks sometimes appear muted, Flash sometimes overwhelms low-light shots
Summary: Olympus' Tough 1030SW doesn't take massive leaps ahead of its predecessors, but it does introduce a few minor improvements and remains a good choice for users after a unit that can take more than its fair share of punishment.
Pros: Waterproof to 10m, shockproof from 2m, snow- and crush-proof, fairly sharp images, low noise levels
Summary: Though you'll find some good deals online, you're not going to buy an Olympus Mju 1030 SW unless you also buy into its exterior toughness – as it's obviously costing you a little extra over similarly specified competitors. At a time when a lot of rivals shout about features that amount to little more than gimmicks, however, it's good to find Olympus providing the consumer with a unique selling point that is more than just a conversation piece and is genuinely useful.
Olympus µ 1030SW: Diese Outdoor-Kamera überlebt fast alles
19 November 2008
Summary: Wenn die Olympus-SW-Serie wasserdichter und stoßfester Kameras die Bergsteiger der Kamerawelt sind, so ist die µ 1030SW Reinhold Messner. Sie verkraftet mehr Belastung sowie Stürze aus größerer Höhe und taucht tiefer als irgendeine andere Kompaktknipse auf der Welt.
Pros: extrem robust, 10,1 Megapixel, tolles Display
