The Classic Olympus Stylus 550WP
[easyazon-block asin=”B001P06Q0C” align=”left”]The Olympus Stylus 550WP is definitely an outstanding digital camera and, better still, it comes with a very fair price. In fact, at under $180, this camera remains a tremendous buy as it is packed with scores of features commonly found on more costly models.
At only 1.4lbs, you would assume such a lightweight camera would have limited attributes. This is not the case at all! With the Olympus Stylus 550WP, you gain access to a solid camera that is easy to transport anywhere you wish. The exterior is made from aluminum which adds to its durability. In fact, this camera is waterproof (up to ten feet) which means it will not suffer damage from moisture or exposure all that easily.
But, what about the actual pictures it takes? You will never be disappointed with any photos you capture with this camera. It maintains 10-megapixel resolution which means the quality of the pictures will be above reproach. When you want to take a great photo and you want it to look good, this camera will prove to be a tremendous help.
The camera also comes with a 3x optical zoom which means distance will likely not be a problem unless you are trying to capture something from very far away. In general, you should not have much difficulty snapping photos of any image that is relatively close.
Among the most common “areas of contention” would be whether or not a camera is compatible with different memory in picture cards. (You never know when the enclosed camera card/picture card becomes lost) Thankfully, this model is compatible with xD Picture Cards and microSD memory cards which means you have many more options when the time comes to replace the original item.
The bottom line here is the Olympus Stylus 550WP is both an excellent camera and a fair priced one. Consider that a grand plus when you are in the market for a new camera.
