Olympus Stylus 740 (mju 740 Digital) review
Mar 10, 2007

I've a lot of cameras, up to 1ds. Got this because I wanted something pocketable for particular occasions.
You cannot see the screen in really bright sunshine and there's no optical viewfinder. Mind you most of its competitors are similar I imagine. Allowing for the 5x zoom, image quality is good. Some edge softness at particular focal lengths. Very easy camera to use but I don't think I'd buy one again. I'd get one with an optical viewfinder and a shorter zoom, with better lens quality.
