Olympus Stylus 1050 SW

PC Magazine
6 February 2009
  • Conclusion: Waterproofing, ruggedizing, and a unique "tap-control" feature don't make up for subpar image quality and long shutter lag in this Olympus point-and-shooter.
  • Pros: Waterproof, shockproof, freezeproof. Built-in accelerometer and "tap controls" let you activate some features by tapping. Descriptive menus and features are very intuitive and helpful for beginners.
  • Cons: Long shutter delay. Long wait time between shots. Sharpness weakens at image edges. Noticeable color fringing. ISO speeds 400 to 1600 are very noisy. LCD shows significant motion blur.

  • Conclusion: The 1050SW is a tough and smart little camera, but its somewhat crude and complicated operation, basic lens and lack of image stabilisation count against it.

Olympus mju 1050SW review Review

CNET
20 November 2008
  • Summary: It's quite astonishing that such a slim and elegant camera should also turn out to be so tough. But its small size and slippery finish does limit its usefulness in those extreme environments it's so good at surviving, and its controls and its picture quality are no more than average
  • Pros: All kinds of proof, Slim and elegant
  • Cons: Maddening tap control, Average lens and picture quality

Olympus µ 1050 SW

CNET
2 December 2008
  • Excerpt: Avant tout destiné aux baroudeurs, cet appareil photo numérique est en premier lieu assez fin (2,3 centimètres) et plutôt léger (152 grammes). Les points d’originalité de l' Olympus mju 1050 SW sont sa résistance aux chutes jusqu’à 1,5 mètres, sont étanchéité jusqu’à 3 mètres et sa capacité à supporter des températures jusqu’à -10°C.
  • Pros: caractéristiques tropicalisées, manipulation en tapotant, capteur 10,7 millions de pixels.
  • Cons: zoom insuffisant, stabilisateur numérique et non optique, n’accepte que les cartes xD et micro SD.
