Olympus Stylus 500 (mju 500 Digital) review

Easy to use, fits anywhere. Splash and dust proof.
Picture quality okay but not as good as the stylus 410 IMHO.
New battery lasts longer but the ones from earlier stylus can be used too. they also fit in the same charger


Good enough camera but NOT to be carried in your pocket,
aluminium front is quite weak so after a month it got dented and the slide would not work. Easily fixed it myself, lost warranty ofcourse but that does not matter much as Olympus is very quick to state that damage is not due to normal use. AND you'd have to wait for about three monothes to get your camera back....
