Olympus has released another ultra-compact camera, the Stylus 7010. It features 12 megapixel image stabilized sensor, 2.7 inch HyperCrystal II LCD and 28mm wide angle 7x optical zoom lens – all housed in a chic slim body.
The camera is very easy to use, and even beginner can capture nice images with it thanks to its innovative Intelligent Auto (i-Auto) Mode that automatically identifies five common types of scenes and adjusts settings accordingly. Dual IS (Optical and Digital Stabilization) performance further ensures that every shot is clear and eliminated blurring caused by camera shake.
The Stylus 7010 offers features AF tracking function which guarantees that even moving subjects are perfectly in focus at all times.
It also includes a set of ‘magic filters’ such as Pop Art, Pin Hole, Sketch and Fish-Eye filters. Pop Art, for example, make images colors look more intense and vivid.
What’s more, the 7010’s Beauty Mode smoothes out imperfections from the final image for a fresh complexion and In-Camera Panorama Mode helps to make expansive shots outdoors, landscapes or cityscapes.
The Stylus 7010 is for the most part responsive and intuitive to use, and shouldn’t tax its target audience. It will suit someone looking for an inexpensive snapshot model to tuck into a shirt pocket or clutch bag when heading out on a Friday night.
The 7010 has a long zoom in super thin ultra-compact body. It comes in about average, in terms of overall performance. It offers no manual control over exposure and delivers noisy images sometimes. It isn’t the slowest camera in its class, but it’s not the fastest either.
This is a standard compact camera offering that bit extra zoom. Not every camera can stand out for the crowd, so this camera is simply good enough without being anything special.
