Summary: I bought this camera based on the fact that you can drop it and it still works. The camera is quite small which is very useful for putting in handbag and comes in a range of colours-I have shocking pink:) I am not a proffesional photographer but in my opinion the camera takes good quality pictures and videos. Its very easy to use and after you have taken a picture you can chagne the colour to black and white which I really like.
Summary: This camera can do everything I need it to do. It has many, many different settings. It has been dropped my kids countless times and still working. Definitely the best camera I have ever bought!!!!
Summary: Having tried various other cameras we saw the advert for this camera with the little boy and the dog. We have two very active boys who enjoy taking pictures and actually capture some lovely shots, but unfortunately are not as gentle as you would like them to be with cameras . Consequently we bought this camera about 18months ago, it has taken pictures of kick boxing competitions with very good action shots, it has taken pictures of bonfire night with some lovely...
Olympus µ[MJU:] 850 SW: Being Waterproof Doesn't Compensate For It's Failings.
11 February 2009
Summary: This is the "Olympus mju 850 SW" compact digital camera. It offers the user eight megapixels, a focal length of between 38-114mm, a face detection mode, and good macro capabilities. The camera uses XD memory cards, and an Li-ion battery. It also offers an ISO range spanning from 64 to 1600.
Pros: Waterproof, Shockproof, Freezeproof. Good Macro Mode. Good Build Quality.
Cons: Generally Poor Picture Quality. Slow to Process Image. No Control Over Shutter Speed. Over Priced.
Summary: We bought a pair of these cameras for our office to replace our previous site cameras which were getting broken and unreliable. As you can imagine, they have a fairly rough time of it, being used by different staff, on building sites, in all weather, five days a week. We've had them for several months and the only thing that has happened is some slight scratching of the front panel. Picture quality is very good and the menus are easy to use.
Summary: I saw the adverts on tv and knew what a great camera it would be. If your someone like myself who drops and breaks everything this camera is for you. Excellent for taking to the beach being dustproof, and the underwater capabilities are amazing. Easy to charge, recommend buying the biggest memory card (2GB?) as you don't want to have to sacrifice any older pictures. Comes with a little bag to keep it nicely tucked away and clean.
