  • Summary: As far as diving goes, the Olympus Stylus 770 SW is a terrific companion. We wouldn't take it on a really deep dive, but anything that'll take you to perhaps 70 feet is apparently okay.
  • Pros: Real diving now possible with new 33 feet depth limit, Can actually handle depths of 66 feet and more (not recommended, but we tested it), Inherent waterproofing provides peace of mind when handling in/around water, Can survive 5-foot drops and 14 degree temperature!, Optional PT-035 underwater c...
  • Cons: Use of underwater wide-angle modes requires practice, Strictly point & shoot, Elegant metal body easily gets scratched, Wish it'd fit into the PT-033 case, Need better handstrap for underwater use, Uses often hard-to-find xD-Picture Card

Olympus Stylus 770 SW Review

Digitaltrends
1 November 2007
  • Conclusion: There is no digital camera available like the Olympus Stylus 770SW. None can take the beating this camera can. If you’re an outdoorsy type and are looking for an easy-to-carry camera to take along on your treks, this is the one.

PC Magazine

  • Conclusion: Whether you're in the pool, at the beach, or trudging across frozen tundra, the Stylus 770 is tough enough to take what you dish out.

Review: Olympus Stylus Zoom 770 SW

Wired
4 June 2007
  • Excerpt: The expression on the face of that puffer fish? Awesome. Our crayon and napkin illustration for the folks back home? Less so. Good thing for the Stylus 770 SW. This waterproof compact shooter survived both a stomp from a size 13 boot (connected to a 212-pound tester) and a night in the freezer...
  • Pros: Military and industrial certified for dust, shock, and liquid immersion. Truly pocket-sized. Bright 2.5 LCD screen is great outside. On-screen depth information for underwater shooting. Four different modes for shooting underwater.
  • Cons: No manual exposure controls. Only crushproof up to 220lbs-no running this cam over with your car. Lengthy shutter lag when shooting in Normal mode. Video capture tricky to initialize. Only supports xD media.

Olympus 770 SW

21 May 2007
  • Summary: Not happy to sit on its laurel, Olympus has equipped its second generation SW digital camera, the Olympus Stylus 770 SW , with even more "toughness." We thought last year's Stylus 720 SW was built as tough as it gets -- but the Stylus 770 SW improves upon it with waterproof capability up to 10m (33...

Olympus Tough 770SW

Good Gear Guide.au
7 November 2007
  • Summary: Designed specifically for a niche market, the Tough 770SW is an ideal camera for those into the rougher side of life. Its pictures aren't the best we've seen, but for some that isn't the primary concern when buying a camera, and for those people this model may be a good choice.
  • Pros: Basically everything proof, macro light for close up photography, good, noise performance at ISO 100
  • Cons: Some under sharpening issues, slow burst mode, slow shutter speed

Expert Review

Digital Camera Magazine
1 September 2007
  • Summary: This genuinely tough and thoroughly usable Olympus Mju is well worth buying for its rugged build quality alone. The average image quality that it produces isn't too exciting - but the extreme nature of the photos that it enables you to take is. Well worth a tst run, dive, hike or jump.
