Olympus 850 SW

  • Excerpt: If your rambles take you through adverse terrain and extreme climate (or if you're just generally clumsy), having a digicam like the 850 SW is a definite plus. Why? Because it's shockproof and waterproof. While such ruggedness is great, are the pictures good enough?

Cameras
16 April 2008
  • Conclusion: I see the Olympus MJU 850 SW as a camera that you can use just about anywhere. The picture quality could be better, so it's more likely to appeal to someone who is after a snapshot camera they can have fun with rather than one that will produce the perfect picture.
  • Pros: Waterproof and shockproof - looks good
  • Cons: Picture quality could be better

  • Conclusion: It takes decent pictures, is easy to use, is likely to survive most things better than the person holding it and given all the above, is actually very reasonably priced to boot. As a combination, that is actually a pretty compelling one.

CNET
3 July 2008
  • Summary: Während Freiluftaktivitäten versagen Kameras oft genau dann den Dienst, wenn es anfängt, interessant zu werden. Die 850SW ist selbst für anspruchsvolle Skifahrer, Biker und Schnorchler robust genug und liefert trotz etwas langsamer Performance helle, beeindruckende Fotos und Videos.
  • Pros: allgemeine Robustheit, elegantes, flaches Design, helle Fotos mit kräftigen Farben
  • Cons: lange Verschlussverzögerung, eher durchschnittliche Funktionen
