Express Review posted for Olympus Stylus 760|

Reviewer Rob Murray found a lot to like in the Olympus Stylus 760, but also at least one "glaring" issue, namely glare from the LCD monitor when shooting outdoors.
The Olympus 760 is compact, ultra-stylish, slips in and out pockets easily, and takes great pictures under the right conditions. It's also splashproof, a very nice feature if you're ever caught in a rainstorm with your camera.
The LCD screen is big, bright, and high-resolution too, but when Rob took it outdoors, glare from the sun made it all but impossible to see what he was framing. This is frequently the case with LCD viewfinders, but many cameras also offer an optical viewfinder as an option for just such situations. Unfortunately, the LCD is the only viewfinder option on the Stylus 760.
Bottom line, the Olympus 760 is almost a great camera, but a near-miss when its glare-prone screen is taken into account. For more details, see our Olympus 760 Express Review.
