Question about Olympus Stylus 720 SW Digital Camera

1 Answer

Minor problems when dry, completely useless when wet

My Olympus stylus 720 SW seems to have some glitches. It takes pictures when the button is not fully pressed, that halfway where the camera should only focus and wait for you to press the button completely before capturing the image. Also, in video mode the video will not stop recording. I have to press the power button and turn the camera off to stop recording a video. both of these problems occur even when the camera is dry. If I take the camera into the pool, maximum 5 feet deep, there is a serious problem and it cannot be used at all until i take out the battery and memory card and let it dry out in the sun with the battery compartment cover open and the USB cover open.

How do I use the timer on my my Olympus Stylus 720 SW.


To shoot with the self timer: have the camera in shooting mode - press teh down arrow on the back of the camera until the symbol shows that looks like a clock - this turns self timer on.

After it is set to ON - fully depress the shutter button - this will start the self timer process you have 12 seconds if you want to be in the shot -

This is a one shot deal. If you wish tio take another photo using self timer you have to set it up again.
