Olympus Stylus 830 Review

Review Date: Dec 17, 2007

Olympus Stylus 830
Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Olympus Stylus 830 (Mju 830 in UK) features 8MP resolution on a 1/2.35 in. CCD image sensor, 5x optical zoom, a large 2.5-in. LCD monitor with a high 230,000 pixels resolution and Bright Capture Technology which allows for enhanced previewing and image quality in low light.

One of the main attraction of the Olympus Stylus 830 is its All-Weather capability (equivalent to IEC Standard publication 529 IPX4) which means it is resistant to water sprays, splashes and the elements. Note that it is splashproof, not waterproof [for that, you need the Stylus 770 SW or Stylus 790 SW].

The Olympus Stylus 830 provides 26 shooting modes, including 23 easy-to-use Scene Modes and QuickTime (640 x 480 @ 30fps) movie with sound. A built-in Help GUIDE provides tips to help you decide which setting is ideal for each situation. Face Detection tracks your subjects' faces within the frame and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure. Perfect Shot Preview lets you see the effects of various settings in real time. Perfect Fix lightens up shadows and remove red-eye in-camera.

Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization combines with high ISO sensitivity (up to ISO 1600) and fast shutter speeds to minimize or reduce blurring caused by camera shake and subject movement.

The Olympus Stylus 830 should appeal to point-and-shoot photographers desiring an ultra-compact, all-weather digital camera with the famous ease-of-use of the Stylus line of cameras.
