I have been the proud owner of the Olympus µ[MJU:] Digital 730 for 4 years. At the time of buying it was the most stylish, slick compact camera available and for me it is still a contender 4 years later. One of the main features that attracted me to this camera is the extremely large colour 3inch viewing screen. Gone are the times of peering at tiny 1inch screen to see you photographs.
Not only is this camera attractive to look at but it is also extremely practical. The slim metal body is weatherproof; the quality of the pictures taken day or night is great. Which is what it's all about really, capturing your treasured memories and experiences in good quality. The timer gets frequently used by me enabling me to capture the whole family. With the easy to used buttons everyone has been able to have a successful go on the camera, from the children to the grandparents. The display screen also shows how many pictures have been taken to you know exactly how much room you have left on your memory card. I tend to charge the li-ion battery if I know that I'm going to an event or will be using the camera a lot that day & from charged the battery has never run out on me...touch wood
I really can't say enough good things about this camera with its x3.0 optical zoom, 7.1 mega pixel, anti shake to avoid blurred photographs, microphone for videos. The only function that it is lacking is being completely waterproof so not suitable for water fans, you'll need to stay poolside rather than dive straight in with this camera
With an exceptionally large 7.6cm LCD, the µ 730 ensures framing is a joy and lets results be shown to whole groups of friends at once. The camera's stylish, weatherproof metal body is extremely slim and exudes unmistakable elegance wherever it is taken. Due to the incorporation of Olympus-developed Bright Capture Technology, shooting in the dark environments show significantly better results by increasing the contrast on the LCD and brighten up the pictures considerably. This technology is also incorporated in the movie function. Yet the µ 730 can do even more in the dark - thanks to illuminated buttons, finding them won't be left to chance any more.
