Great concept but fails on what counts the most

  • Summary: I really liked the design and functionality of the camera. I spend a lot of time outdoors and having a waterproof camera was excellent. It is small enough to fit in a pocket, so I could take it with me wherever I wanted. Unfortunately, it wasn't as comfortable and easy to hold as I imagined. My finger kept getting in the way of the shots. I found the picture quality to be very poor. This bad quality outweighed everything good about the camera.

  • Excerpt: Not happy! This is the second MJU 720SW I have had; the first failed in water and was replaced by Olympus (their customer service is very good indeed). This unit also failed in water and ruined my memory card taking over 200 holiday pics with it!! I'm also not thrilled with the picture quality, despite the 20 or so settings images are just not sharp enough.

Some things to consider BEFORE buying

  • Excerpt: I took my MJU 720 to Africa with me on an overland trip. The two main qualities which attracted me was having it be indestructable; and that I could take it underwater with me. It has been a good buy overall but there are certainly a few things which I would have liked to be aware of before I bought: Cons: As with most new digitals the included memory is just a token - you will need to get a bigger memory chip at cost.
  • Pros: Tough, compact, big display, waterproof, shockproof
  • Cons: LCD is prone to scratching; images can be blurred without a steady hand !

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera about four months ago in Australia (I did forget about the Australian lead though and fortunately I had a lead at home to use to charge the battery). The key reasons I bought is was because it was waterproof (thought I might spill water on it) and shock proof (have a tendancy to drop things). The camera does have alot of features, such as the different modes to take a picture, e.g. indoors, through a window and landscape etc.
  • Pros: Waterproof, good features .
  • Cons: Picture quality

  • Excerpt: E r f a h r u n g s b e r i c h t Testkamera: Olympus mju 720 SW [ Allgemeines und Technisches Vom Optischen her ist die 720 SW schon schick, wenn auch an einigen Stellen extrem glänzend, was ziemlich verspielt aussieht. Aber darüber konnte ich dann doch noch hinweg sehen. Die 720 SW ist eine ähnliche Kamera wie die Pentax W10, denn die 720 SW ist auch für Unterwasseraufnahmen geeignet. Allerdings ist die 720 SW besser, wenn es um Tauchtiefe und Stoßfestigkeit geht.
  • Pros: Design noch ganz okay // 24 Motivprogramme
  • Cons: ungünstig platzierte Linse //  Rauschverhalten // Bildqualität
