Olympus Stylus 800 Digital Camera Preview
by Howard Creech -  9/19/2005

Shortly after its introduction (in 1990) the rugged little Stylus became the 35mm P&S camera of choice for a generation of World trekkers, travel writers, print & TV correspondents, and extreme sports fans. The new digital Stylus 800 retains much of the style, charm, and usability of its film predecessor plus the ability to withstand extended exposure to mist, rain, snow, jungle humidity, desert dust, and ocean spray.  The Stylus 800 also boasts 8-megapixel resolution, a bright 2.5 inch LCD screen, a 3X optical zoom, "Point & Shoot" ease of use, manual exposure capability, and an ISO 1600 sensitivity setting.

The Stylus 800 is a worthy successor to that first Stylus and a super choice for weight or space conscious skiers, hikers, backpackers, bikers, treasure hunters, wanderers, and pretty much anyone who enjoys photography, doesn't mind breaking a sweat, and loves the great outdoors.
