Olympus Stylus 790 SWThe Olympus Stylus 790 SW is a waterproof and shockproof, 7-megapixel shooter that comes in a variety of colors.
[ Music ] >> Hi, I'm Will Greenwald, assistant editor at cnet.com and this is the Olympus Stylus 790 SW. This is the follow-up to the Olympus Stylus 770 SW which was their last waterproof, weather-proof, pretty much everything-proof camera. Like the 770 SW, this camera can be soaked, it can be frozen, it can be stomped on, and it's also dust-proof. It can handle being submerged in up to 10 feet of water and there's an optional casing so you can take it into lower depths. It can -- shock-proof, so if you drop it, it doesn't really -- hurt it. Which is a lot more than I can say for a lot of cameras. Look, still works. It can handle fine dust, it can handle freezing, it can handle pretty much anything you can throw at it. And in terms of consumer point-and-shoot cameras this is one of the more durable you're going find. Now, it's a 7 megapixel camera, so it hasn't changed a whole lot from the 770, but it does use Olympus's TruePic III image processor, which means it should be a little faster and produce a little better picture quality. Also, unlike the 770 SW this comes in five different colors. So if you want to take away a lime-green or an orange camera and go swimming with that, you can. I'm Will Greenwald, and this is the Olympus Stylus 790 SW. [ Music ]
