Olympus Stylus 850 SW review

The image quality is about average for a $250 point-and-shoot, maybe even a little better than average and everything else about the camera is excellent: it's small; it's fast: and it's easy. (No image stabilization, but it's a cheap camera.) What makes this camera an extraordinary value is that you can jump into the water with it (including salt water) and even under the water (though not scuba diving) and it works as well as on dry land. If the movie feature works at all (I haven't tested it yet) it will be even more valuable. I'm completely satisfied.


None if you don't expect more than the specs offer.
