Reviews and Problems with Olympus mju 740 / Stylus 740

Showing 1-7 of 7

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. It is also pleasing to the eye.
  • 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

Digicam Review
14 September 2007
  • Summary: : The Olympus Stylus / Mju 740 has a lot going for it, particularly the 5x optical zoom lens and ultra compact weather proof body. The camera would be especially suited to someone who wants to take their camera with them in all weathers. The solid build of this camera is likely to make it last well, and makes it good value for money. Image quality was generally good, although slightly under-saturated for some people's tastes, and images can be slightly soft.
  • Pros: 5x Optical zoom lens, Weather proof, Very compact, Very Stylish, Guide Mode, In camera editing (red-eye removal, contrast, saturation etc), Digital Image Stabilisation mode (ISO up to 1600 at full resolution), Very good exposure / metering, Good colour, Good Macro modes, 23 Scene modes
  • Cons: Doesn't feature custom white balance, Panoramic mode only available with Olympus XD cards!, Lacks picture options of other Olympus cameras, i.e. Saturation, Contrast, Sharpness instead you'll need to use one of the Scene modes, or Edit in playback mode (though no Sharpness).
