Showing 1-5 of 5
Thinnest 5X optical zoom camera in its class
30 November 2011
Summary: In its own right, the Stylus 740 is a moden digicam that has a whole lot going for it. It is very small and light, yet offers the most desirable 5X optical zoom and comes with a very high-resolution LCD that greatly helps in figuring out which pictures are good and which can be deleted.
Pros: Small and light 7.1 megapixel camera with hi-res LCD, Weather-proofed to handle splashes, a bit of rain and snow, Great 5X zoom, superb image stabilization, Optional PT-034 underwater case good for 133 feet diving, Love the many scene modes and the special guide mode
Cons: Strictly point & shoot, Use of underwater wide-angle modes requires practice, Somewhat odd-looking wedge design, Uses often hard-to-find xD-Picture Card
Excerpt: Taking a slight diversion from that of the camera norm, the mju legacy continues with the Olympus mju 740 (Olympus Stylus 740 in the US). It features 5x optical zoom lens and weatherproof metallic body
