First Look: Olympus Stylus 770SW

1:21 /

A stylish, rugged 7-megapixel digital camera that has a 3x optical zoom and a 2.5-inch color LCD and can take pictures underwater.

[ Music ] >> Hi, I'm Will Greenwald, associate editor for CNET.com and this is the Olympus stylus 770SW. This is the follow-up to Olympus's previous SW camera, the 720 SW which was shockproof and waterproof and Olympus has made this one even more rugged. In addition to being dropped proof and, oops, Olympus has made this crush proof, you can put up to 220 pounds on it and freeze proof, you can freeze it at as low as 14 degrees Farenheight[sp?]. For most cameras the liquid crystal display will start to get really wonky and simply the camera will not work at that temperature, so this is pretty impressive. In addition, when you're diving it has a built in manometer which is sort of like an ultimater only in reverse, it lets you see how deep you are going in the water, among other features. And it will actually record to the information stored on the image how deep you are when you shot, which makes this really handy if you are diving and want to take pictures. Beyond that this is pretty much a standard seven mega pixel point and shoot camera, three X lens, 2 1/2 inch screen, nice handful of manual features but really it's the ruggedness that makes this camera really interesting. I'm Will Greenwald and this is the Olympus stylus 770SW. [ Music ]
