The Stylus 720 SW can withstand a 5-foot drop, shoot under water up to 10 feet, and combines light, durable body construction and shock-absorbing materials throughout the interior. The stylish and compact Stylus 720 SW offers 7.1 megapixels of resolution, a 3x internal zooming lens, 2.5" LCD, Bright Capture Technology, Digital Image Stabilization Mode and much more. Designed for everyday use yet versatile and rugged enough to shoot on the mountain, at the game, at the party, on the beach or up to ten feet underwater.
The Stylus 720 SW is packed with a wealth of premium features such a large 2.5" LCD and Olympus' exclusive Bright Capture Technology providing dramatically improved shooting in low-light conditions - indoor, sunset, night time, and underwater. The combination of Olympus' TruePic TURBO Image Processor and the 7.1-megapixel image sensor capture crisp, high-quality images fast. And the 28 shooting modes - including Digital Image Stabilization Mode - offer maximum versatility for shooting in most any situation.
Built with durable materials and shock-absorption technology that minimizes the impact delivered to the lens and circuitry, the Stylus 720 SW delivers superior durability in a premium point-and-shoot digital camera. Swimming, surfing, hiking, climbing, mountain biking, skiing or snowboarding - the 720 SW performs in any conditions. The all-weather exterior with rubber gaskets and O-rings allows the camera to shoot under water to depths up to 10 feet. If you want to go deeper, the optional PT-033 underwater housing enables the camera to shoot at depths up to 130 feet.
Low-light photography has never been easier thanks to Olympus' revolutionary Bright Capture Technology. Shooting in low light is easy with a brightened preview on the LCD; and with specific scene modes for high sensitivity settings (up to ISO 2500) and rapid auto-focus, even fast-action photos can be captured under low levels of available light. The Stylus 720 SW also features Digital Image Stabilization Mode for capturing crisp, clear pictures - free from the blur sometimes caused by camera shake or moving subjects - with high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speeds.
With a bright, wide-view, 2.5-inch color LCD, the Stylus 720 SW easily doubles as a portable digital photo album. The larger LCD makes it easier to see your images clearly both when shooting and sharing photos with friends without having to download to a computer.
With 25 pre-programmed scene modes, such as Beach & Snow, Available Light Portrait, Sunset, and Under Water Snapshot, the Stylus 720 SW makes it easy to capture beautiful images in a variety of lighting and shooting situations. And with its QuickTime Movie Mode you can also record VGA-quality videos with sound, limited only by the size of the internal memory or xD-Picture Card in the camera.
The compact, all-weather Stylus 720 SW can go virtually anywhere you can. The body is
constructed of durable, lightweight metal with rubber gaskets throughout the interior to
ensure that rain, sleet, snow won't get in the way of great photos. And with its new
optimized battery design, the Stylus 720 SW can take hundreds of shots between charges.
Connecting to a computer is easy with the USB Auto Connect feature,
which connects directly via USB cable and requires no software. Or, If you prefer,
forget the computer altogether. The power of PictBridge technology enables photos to be
printed directly from the camera to any PictBridge-enabled printer.
