not as durable as led to believe

Ted Lifset, Amazon
28 August 2013
  • Summary: I purchased this camera for its all around durability - waterproof, drop-proof, freeze-proof, idiot-proof. Just what I thought I needed for a two week rafting trip in the depths of Alaska. It held up fine for those two weeks but I guess it didn't appreciate returning to civilization as much as I did. It no longer wanted to focus properly, and some sand entered the lens area that just royally fouled up the sliding cover.

was happy with it at first

  • Summary: Was originally very happy with this camera. Used it in a pool, took it snorkeling and skin diving, played around at the beach, no issues. True, the photo quality could be a bit better, but overall, it gets the job done. Then just recently, on a very shallow swim, in very calm water, I noticed the LCD crapped out. Got back on land, checked it out, and found that it had flooded.

Point and Pray

Thomas Adamski, Amazon

  • Summary: Poor latch on battery compartment will eventually admit water, ruining the camera. Lack of a viewfinder forces you to rely on the LCD screen which washes out completely in sunlight.

Very disappointed

J. Hensley "Outdoor guy who takes pictures", Amazon
16 July 2007
  • Summary: Apparently digital cameras haven't come very far in the last 7 years. Just bought the 770SW and thought I'd test it out. I shot a series of indoor, outdoor, and macro shots, using the same focal point, with my old 2MP Fuji and the new Olympus. I shot at two different quality settings on each and with an array of camera settings (canned features, white balance, iso, etc). No zoom. Then I downloaded them and compared them side by side.

Not fit for surfing

dogdogbobbob "noj", Amazon

  • Summary: This camera is not a good choice for surfers. Mine broke after 30 mins in 3/4ft swell, water entered the battery compartment and bye-bye camera. I'm sending back to Olympus. Suspect it would be fine in pools, still water etc.

Assez déçu du Olympus 770 Sw

petitcoquelicot, Ciao
20 July 2009
  • Summary: Voyageant beaucoup et faisant pas mal de sport (natation, VTT en particulier) je voulais un appareil robuste et étanche pouvant m'accompagner partout, sans trop me soucier de l'appareil en question. D'après les caractéristiques techniques, il est résistant à une charge de 100kg et à une chute de 1,5 mètres. De ce point de vue là, il n'y a rien à redire, pas de dysfonctionnements malgré plusieurs chutes : c'est du matériel robuste.
  • Pros: solidité
  • Cons: qualité image moyenne, flash peu puissant, lourd

Appareil déconseillé pour le snorkeling.

sgonidec, Ciao
6 December 2007
  • Summary: J'ai utilisé cet appareil en juin 2007 pour un séjour en Asie. Bilan , après 3 utilisation en mer en masque et tuba, l'appareil est devenu inutilisable. un peu d'eau était rentré dedans. Super pour un appareil étanche! Finalement, Olympus m'a redonné un appareil neuf mais je n'ai pas de souvenir des philipines comme je l'aurais voulu! J'ai tout de meêm pu récupérer mes photos sur carte mémoire.
  • Pros: Compacité/Qualité de construction et SAV Olympus
  • Cons: Qualité de l'image , Ecran nul au soleil, étancheité à revoir
