New Olympus 770SW swims with the fishes

Plunging to depths that would have other 'waterproof' snappers reaching for a snorkel, Olympus’ new digi diver will happily swim with the fishes

Plunging to depths that would have other 'waterproof' snappers reaching for a snorkel, Olympus’ new digi diver will happily swim with the fishes and live to tell the tale.A swan dive into 10m deep water is no problem for the Mju 770SW, while back on dry land it’ll also survive a 1.5m plummet to the dirt.Magic moments are taken care of by the 7.1MP sensor and non-protruding 3x zoom lens. Oh and it'll handle temperatures right down to minus 10 degrees – not that we'd advise venturing into the water at that point.It officially swims into shops next month but you can find a few etailers jumping the gun right now with models in silver, blue and mocha. Better get your trunks on.
