Olympus Stylus 600 (mju 600 Digital) review

Nice camera in many ways, esp the weatherproofing and construction.
Easy to set up and use though menu system took a little getting used to, results pleasing for beginner.


Big problem with image quality. If camera used in basic program mode you can set resolution up to full 6mP. However if you use the Scenes mode the available light programs reduce the resolution to 1mP as well as increase sensitivity. I can't see wy anyone would use a 6mP camera to store 400kB files with no way of overriding the set-up.
Solution avoid available light modes and chech camera resolution is set for max in other modes which default to 5mP.
Wierd logic for what should be great camera.
