Olympus Stylus 1030SW

PC Magazine
24 April 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: 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
  • Cons: Colour issues, chromatic aberration problems, slow burst mode

Olympus µ 1030SW: Diese Outdoor-Kamera überlebt fast alles

CNET
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
  • Cons: langsam, weiche Bilder
