Replaced my Stylus 410

20 November 2010
  • Summary: I loved my Stylus 410. I could take it in the shower and it would stop each and every drop...frozen dead in their tracks. I expected this from the 1030SW. I do my best not to drop my camera, however accidents happen. I do take it in the shower every once in a while. I honestly felt I had outgrown my 410 and what else would I replace my best friend with but a newer model.

Leakage Under Water

25 February 2009
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for use in places where I don't want to take my digital SLR: hiking in humid or dusty,sandy places, near waterfalls and snorkeling. Last week, I used it for the first time under water during a week in the Bahamas. On the second day of snorkeling, I started seeing low battery warnings on a just-charged battery following by a reset of my current settings. Returning to my hotel, I opened the battery compartment and discovered several drops of water.
  • Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use
  • Cons: Image Quality, Leaky under water, Poor Operation in Low Light

Olympus Stylus 1030SW Digital Camera

MichaelKerber, Rate it all!
2 November 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera to replace my old powershot SD700, which broke when it was dropped onto a carpeted floor from a height of maybe 4 feet. Overall, I'm happy with the Olympus, but it falls short of my SD700 in a few areas. Pros: - The Olympus is smaller than I expected. It fits easily into my pocket and is not cumbersome to carry around on backpacking trips, for example. - This thing is durable. You can feel the "sturdiness.

Olympus Stylus 1030 SW

  • Summary: I love how wide the lens is on this camera! Much wider than any other camera I've had recently. I took this camera on a river rafting trip for three days and on the last day I had some fogging in the lens. By the end of the trip I could hardly see anything. This happened without really having the camera submerged and was mainly just splashed a lot.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Easy Setup, Strong Construction

Lots of Noise

29 July 2008
  • Summary: I used this camera for underwater photography. There was a tremendous amount of noise in the pictures. It was presented as being usable up to 10m. However, my experience is that it isn't adequate for below 1 m without an additional light source.
  • Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy to Keep Clean, Strong Construction
  • Cons: Long Lag Time, Poor Operation in Low Light
