Olympus Stylus 850 SW review

Handling is good and start-up time is quick so it should be great for snapping action shots, but... like so many other "robust" cameras... there is no control lock. You _will_ bump the macro button or similar and spoil the shot if you are wearing gloves and moving fast. Disappointing.

Image quality is so-so, even when it is being used in an ordinary handheld manner (scenery, people).

Some very good prices now that it is discontinued, so it could be a good buy if the waterproof aspects are the primary concern.
