Olympus Stylus 410 Review
26 April 2013
Summary: A good basic camera with a few extra perks: the LCD screen's quality is astounding and it can take a little more of a beating with its durable, all-weather design (but don't dunk it in the pool!). It records QuickTime and mpeg movies. Basically easy to use, the menu is a but hard to navigate at first.
Pros: Good picture quality, Wonderful LCD screen, Durable and weather resistant
Excerpt: Olympus 410 is an all-weather, splash water and dust resistant digital camera. With all the features that a modern compact digital camera should have, along with a nice design, and dust and water resistant construction, people with active lifestyles can take this camera along wherever they happen to roam.
Excerpt: Olympus America Inc., www.olympusamerica.com $380 street Good 4MP image quality; weather-resistant body Average boot-up times (other cameras are getting quicker) The Olympus Stylus 410 is a good choice as an entry-level subcompact digital camera, with easy handling and good image quality. The camera's "all-weather" capabilities should be attractive to those who plan to do a lot of outdoor shooting.

Summary: The µ[mju:] 410 Digital is as easy-to-use, good looking
and delivers similar image quality as its predecessor the
µ[mju:] 400 Digital. It gets 1/2 star more because of
the improvements that Olympus have made, but it doesn't quite
earn the maximum rating simply because it still doesn't offer
enough photographic control.
Summary: Test shots were rather contrasty with above-average saturation and blocked out highlights in brightly-lit conditions. Low-light shots contained a scattering of stuck pixels but were otherwise relatively noise free. These shots had a more usable dynamic range than shots taken in bright sunlight. The white balance control was an above-average performer, particularly with the manual pre-sets. Average shutter lag was 0.85 seconds. . .
Pros: Plenty of playback options, Good battery life, Weatherproof (but not immersible)
Cons: Weak, non-adjustable flash, Slow response times [BG05]
Excerpt: Nell'universo delle fotocamere digitali ci sono varie categorie: essenziali, di gamma media, avanzate, ecc. Dovrebbe risultare un'altra categoria in più: quella figata delle fotocamere. Permettetemi l'espressione, ma è l'aggettivo più adeguato per la mju 410: è un'autentica figata. Ed una volta che tralasciamo il lato estetico e l'usiamo -ti rendi conto di quante cose- per fotografare…Scatti anche foto belle!
Pros: Buone rifiniture e corpo resistente, molta buona qualità dell'immagine, assenza di aberrazioni cromatiche...
Cons: è impossibile controllare manualmente la sensibilità, assolutamente automatica, con un flash poco potente...
