Excerpt: I love this camera it takes great pictures, but in the sun it is hard to see the lcd screen. I wish it had the view finder on it. This camera really is shock proof and water proof. I live near the ocean and i have kids so it really derable and great for parents!
Excerpt: The Olympus Stylus 790SW Digital Camera is the best digital camera I have ever owed. I have been thru 4 Sony digital cameras that died on me within a year of purchase. After lots of research I found out that Olympus was making some great long lasting cameras that can be dropped and still work flawlessly.
Excerpt: I have been taking underwater photos for more than 25 years and find this small, simple to use camera a great companion for sailing, windsurfing and snorkling trips and well as skiing and other outdoor activities where snap shots will do. The picture quality is fine and the features (movie, snow etc) are most of what snap shot photographers need. Cons:The zoom is only 3x and it has no view finder making it difficult to frame a picture in very bright light.
Okay picture quality, easy to use, waterproofing great feature.

Excerpt: After having lost my Sony DSC P100, a really nice and compact camera, I looked for a replacement and bumped into the Olympus µ 790 SW by pure chance. In spite of being a less "professional" camera I instantly fell in love with it because you could go swimming with it right out of the box.
Excerpt: I have 2 SLR digital cameras and love them. But both were too bulky to carry on an overseas trip where I wanted to pack light but still get lots of quality photos. After searching through the camera aisles, I finally settled on the Olympus Stylus 790SW. I'm thrilled with my choice. It has a clear view of the photo that will be stored--no surprises. Two features are dear to me--the one to help the shaking hand 8^) and the feature that lets you focus on your subject,...
Excerpt: The Olympus Stylus has allowed me to take my camera anywhere and everywhere. I am really hard on all of my electronic equipment and have broken many digital cameras in the past. However, this camera has allowed me to go swimming, skiing, hiking, kyaking, partying, and so much more. It has great quality and is easy to use.
Excerpt: This is a great camera and a wonderful value for the money. Day time pictures and night pictures are clear. Many menu choices to help you get the best picture possible for what ever the scene is. The software for the pc that comes with the camera is great and easy to use. It will help you make very professional photos. This camera can be used for underwater photos and catchs clear photos of moving objects. It can also take small videos.
Summary: I have owned the camera for years now and just now writing a review. Battery life is great and picture quality is super. This camera has been everywhere with me and in some very rough places I might add and has held its own very well. For the price I paid for it on here you can't bet it.
Excerpt: The Olympus Mju 790 SW is my first digital camera. But I have to say I am a bit dissapointed about the image quality. The colours are not always correct. I used to borrow cameras from friends, so I do know a bit about different camera models. The price of a Olympus 790 is not high, but by spending a little more money, I think you can definitely buy a better digital camera.
Summary: I bought this camera and used it on several kayaking trips where it got SLIGHTLY wet and the camera functioned just fine. However, I just took it underwater for the first time while snorkeling and it leaked into every area (i.e. battery and memory card slots, plug in port, etc) and quit working. It's supposed to be waterproof up to 10', and I was maybe 1'-2' underwater. I ended up taking out the memory card and battery and blow drying the camera until it was dry.
