Olympus Stylus 850 SW Reviews
GoodGearGuide reviews the Olympus Stylus 850SW and writes;
“Noise was kept well under control at low ISOs, with everything up to ISO 400 being adequate for small prints. If you plan on making enlargements you may wish to stick to ISO 200 and below, but even then the noise isn’t so prominent that it really detracts from the image.”
ThinkCamera reviews the Olympus Stylus 850SW and writes;
“The picture quality, lens range and the battery may not be top rank, but no other manufacturer has put as much effort into reinforcing (literally) a whole line of camera models. That’s the ticket – the most significant reason to buy an Olympus µ [mju:] 850 SW is if you will distinctly benefit from its tough features.”
