Designed to take the knocks, bumps and other trials of daily life with ease, the exceedingly tough Olympus ?’?µ (mju) 720 SW heralds a brand new era in digital photography. Waterproof to 3m and resistant to falls from up to 1.5m, this attractive yet incredibly robust camera can take pretty much anything life throws at it ???‚??? whether that’s being showered with champers or dropped into a mountain stream.
With interest in extreme sports and activity holidays at an all-time high, the Olympus ?’?µ (mju) 720 SW is set to find a place in many holidaymakers’ backpacks this year. Olympus has optimised the standard weatherproof qualities found in all ?’?µ (mju) cameras, making this new model waterproof to 3m and shockproof according to MIL STD (Military Standard). Now, when other cameras reach their limits – such as at the shoreline of the beach or when crossing a mountain stream – the ?µ (mju) 720 SW really comes into its own.
It’s a classic case of “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”, as for even more rough stuff, the ?’?µ (mju) 720 SW users can boost the camera’s waterproof capabilities further, from 3m to an incredible 40m with the optional PT-033 underwater case. Being waterproof the ?’?µ (mju) 720 SW is ideal for taking snorkelling or canoeing. Among its 24 scene modes, which cover most everyday shooting situations such as portraits, landscapes or sports, this camera also includes modes specifically created for underwater photography.
Or so the guys at Olympus claim…
…so I tested if they are telling the “shockproof” truth by dropping the camera from about 1.5 meters!
…and then I tested if they are telling the “waterproof” truth by dropping the camera in an aquarium full of water!
And after all the “testing” the Olympus Stylus 720 SW digital camera still works just fine 😉
