Olympus Stylus 1030 SW review

Overall great little camera if used for what it was
designed for.

I've had this one for a bit now and it has been a great little companion for getting into tight spots and coming
out with a perfectly usable foto.

Underwater is fine, I keep mine lubed up with a high
quality silicone lubricant and you will find it aids the
watertightness of the system.

I find the 5mp resolution to be the least noisy, best
results so far has been to force the camera to an ISO
of 80 and then work the stops so that you are always
shooting at -0.3 to -0.7 and then manipulate the
image in photoshop after. 10mp is exceptional on the
macro function.


The canned settings should be trashed, they are stupid!
