Okay for the reason I purchased it

James M. Johnson, Amazon
27 February 2013
  • Summary: I have another identical model, so I know my issue is a malfunction of the used unit I purchased and not the model as a whole. The camera is great. Good optics, weather resistant, fits in a pocket - and Olympus sells underwater cases pressure rated to 40 meters for most of its point & shoot cameras at reasonable prices. The problem I have with this used unit is there is obviously a short. If you you leave the battery in the camera it will be dead in a day or so.

  • Summary: Get ready to experience compact digital photography in a new light! With an attractive metal body in silver or black and a 5x optical zoom, the Olympus µ [mju:] 780 bestows photographers with both beauty and brawn. The powerful lens lets users zoom in for candid shots at a party, or frame nature scenes with added ease and flexibility.

I do not recommend this camera

gypsea "gypsea", Amazon
27 September 2008
  • Summary: For the money (I paid about $300) and have been using in for about 6 months in a variety of situations, it is not a good deal. I bought it for the water resistancy, which is about the only good thing besides the size. The LCD is impossible to see in bright light. The icons on the buttons are wearing off already. In very bright light, there is often a white circle near the center of the photograph. I have a 2G card and shoot at high res.

Good Pics, Bad Video

CA-SATX "CLA", Amazon
13 February 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera after doing a lot of comparison shopping. I find the camera to be just fine although nothing spectacular. The pics are good but not great. The scene guide is great for an amature like me. The dual-image stabilization seems to work very well. I am often outdoors when I use this camera so the all-weather nature of this camera is great. The LCD screen is quite nice and big but is worthless in bright light.

Totally satisfied

Roger P. Akeley, Amazon

  • Summary: I have used this camera in a variety of situations and it doesn't disappoint. The pictures are clear, the zoom capability is a real advantage over the normal 3X optical zoom, and the closeups are awesome. Took pictures in the near-dark of historic potato houses and it brought these musty rooms to life. I could see in the picture what my eyes couldn't see, without glare or unnatural looking light.

Video is limited to 10 seconds - major limitation

Todd E. Bryant, Amazon
4 August 2007
  • Summary: I've owned numerous Olympus cameras, and our family uses them to take photos and videos for family DVDs. Being able to take 640x480 video at 30 fps is the main feature I'm looking for. The specifications said the camera takes 640x480/30fps video, but you have to read the fine print in the instruction manual to see that 640x480 video is capped at 10 seconds. It's difficult to make much use of a 10 second video!

Not so exciting as it looks.

Sudhindra Chada "sudhi.", Amazon
4 July 2007
  • Summary: First things first... This camera truly has all the features that were advertised... the dual-image stabilization... the shadow adjestment technology... all these work very well... This one slips so comfortably into pocket that sometimes you forget that you carrying a cam. Even the look of the cam is very stylish. this performs very sweet in Day light and even in low light... the problem creeps in at nights... whatever mode you use... whatever settings you change...

Olympus Stylus 750

David Newton, Amazon
1 July 2007
  • Summary: 1) A view finder is a must! Cannot see the subject in the LCD screen in bright light and is totally worthless outdoors. (Olympus says to change the screen contrast. No measureable improvement.) 2) Battery does not last long, especially if using the flash much. 3) No 12V auto charger available. 4) Exposure button pressure is too high increasing rate of shake, blur and out of focus. 5) The price of the camera has dropped 50% in less than 4 months.
