Olympus Stylus u770SW: Tough Camera, More Pics

Illustration for article titled Olympus Stylus u770SW: Tough Camera, More Pics

We briefly mentioned the Olympus Stylus u770SW point-and-shoot camera in a post last month, but we didn't have very good pictures of it and scant information. A bit more has leaked out about this hardened, waterproof camera that can be taken down to 33 feet underwater, including the fact that has a 7.1-megapixel sensor and 18MB of internal memory.

It's nice and small, too, at just over 3.5 inches wide and weighing 5.5 ounces. We also found out the camera will be available in three colors, the silver color you see here, along with purple and brown. Take a look at a closeup of the back of this upcoming underwater point-and-shooter, after the jump.

Olympus still hasn't quoted pricing or release date on this tough mofo. We'll probably get a hands-on at PMA next month.



Update: The price is $379.99 and it will be released on March 19, 2007. Check it out on this Amazon pre-order page. Thanks, Andy!

DISCUSSION

I owned the Olympus 720SW and just bought the Olympus 770SW and there are several improvements over the 720SW:

- Waterproof to 33feet the 720SW was 5 feet

- Freeze-proof

- Crush-proof to 220 lbs

- Manometer - this is a device to measure pressures, like water depth or altitude. Records this info with the photo so you can prove your bragging rights on how deep you were with the camera.
