Olympus Stylus 410 (mju 410 Digital) review
Mar 28, 2005

Takes excellent shots in good light, quality becomes slightly grainy in low light but that's to be expected. Outdoor shots and daytime shots have excellent colouring and crispness, and don't need any pohotoshopping before printing. Indoor shots can come out looking a little funny under automatic setting, but more often than not they are very well coloured and good under the flash also, and improve with tweaking of settings. Feels very solid in the hand, but isnt heavy, just well constructed - you'd feel safe popping it in your bag unprotected. Has a simple yet effective set of modes - there are quite a few modes and options to choose from, but not a lot more than what you would need for taking good scenery and portrait shots.

Problems:

The door to the conections is held shut by the dorr 'wedging' into place - it feels like over time this may become looser, perhaps lowering the weather resistance. It seems ok so far, though. A clasp or lock might have been nice.

It is possible to close the lens cap too quickly, such that it hits the lens barrel as it moves out of the way when turning the camera off. This is easily avoided by taking your time ... but I can see the barrel becoming scratched in the future. Still, the cover provides far more protection while the camera is off than other brands.
