The Olympus 770 SW has now been replaced by the tougher Olympus Stylus TOUGH 8010.  Here's what we said about the 770 SW when it first hit the shelves:

The Olympus Stylus 770 laughs at dangers that would cripple or damage other, weaker cameras. This masochistic model can endure a 5 foot drop, a 5 fathom dunk in the water, extreme cold up to negative 10 degrees Celcius, and up to 220 pounds of weight on top of it. The 770 can't be beat, battered, crushed, frozen, or otherwise mutilated (though it's hard to believe the LCD screen and lenses can stand up to such demands even if the body can). Perfect for the outdoorsy types, the 770 also has a special LCD that can operate well in bright sunlight. This camera is built to survive; just be sure not to test it in conditions where you might have difficultly sustaining your own life.
