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 love taking pictures. Especially the ones that capture the moment. I've owned this camera for almost 6 months, and I wish I never bought it. I owned the pentax opti 20w and it was the best camera I've ever owned! The first one I owned was the opti 10w, it was lost, the second opti 20w fell about 20 feet from the sea wall on to rocks into the water. That's what did it. But, other than that it took ALOT of beatings! I figured I'd try to olympus 790sw.
Summary: Initially I was very satisfied with this camera, the build quality seemed high and it did withstand knocks, bumps, drops and water. I excitedly took it mountain biking, swimming, hiking and everywhere with me. It was good to have a camera I could just put in my pocket and not worry about breaking. The image quality was slightly below average for what you'd expect from a digital camera with such a high resolution however it made up for this in ruggedness and usability.
Summary: Déjà équipé d'un appareil photo réflex numérique, il me fallait un modèle plus compact, capable de faire des photos dans toutes les situations avec quand même une exigence de qualité assez élevée. Un Bon coup dans les Valseuses J'ai donc fait l'acquisition de cet Olympus, donné comme résistant à une chute d'1 mètre 50, et étanche jusqu'à 3 mètres de profondeur.
Pros: antichoc, étanche, prix, qualité d'image
Cons: pas de mode "tout manuel", pas de RAW, flash de compact, bruit numérique
