Review: Olympus Stylus 7000 digital camera

 

The Stylus 7000 certainly delivers in terms of style, ease of use, and a creative feature set.

For general photography, the automatic camera mode is a good place to start. The Stylus 7000 will set exposure and aperture for you, but you can customize the settings by enabling exposure compensation, white balance adjustment, and a host of other...

Olympus Mju 7000 Digital Camera Review

 

Are you a chronic self-portrait shooter or frequent happy snapper whose photos are generally of people? Or do you upload a lot of images to social networking sites such as Facebook or MySpace? If your answer is yes to either of these questions then...

Obviously, the overall effect is increasingly dramatic as the subject fills more and more of the frame but that's not to say it won't work as well for couple and group shots etc. It is important to be aware however, that the images processed in beauty...

Olympus Stylus 7000 review

 

Because it's so light (132g), you can slide the Olympus Stylus 7000 into your top shirt pocket and barely notice that it's there. And when it's time to shoot, an array of intriguing features will help you capture the moment.

The Olympus Stylus 7000 certainly delivers style, ease of use, and a creative feature set. The 12Mp resolution extends the reach of an already hefty 7X zoom, but users will have to accept some compromises in image detail. This camera is ideally suited...

Olympus mju-7000 review

 

Shopper isn't the only publication to have spent the past year criticising camera manufacturers for using sensors with huge resolutions and tiny sizes, which invariably lead to mediocre image quality.

Olympus µ-7000 review

 

Poor battery life and the high price are turn-offs, but on balance this is a likeable point-and-shoot camera. Fujifilm's F100fd takes better pictures, but this is easier - and more fun - to use.

Olympus MJU 7000

 

With the MJU 7000 you get extra zoom in a smaller body. It takes a decent picture too. There are few pitfalls, but few points to get really excited by either. If you are looking for a extra zoom for your snapshots, take a look.

Ease of use - smaller size for longer zoom - good sized screen

Nothing really stands out

The Olympus MJU 7000 offers something different to a lot of digital camera with its longer lens and compact size. It appears to have few, if any, major drawbacks and does a decent enough job. If you would like a smaller camera with some extra zoom it...

Olympus Stylus 7000 review

 

The Olympus Stylus 7000 proves a handsome compact camera that drops points due to image detail.

Light compact stylish design, crisp, shake-free compositions, excellent illuminated back-panel, useful in-camera editing options, in-camera panoramas

Image detail soft, HD compatibility but only standard-def

The Olympus Stylus 7000 is a handsome compact camera that features a 12Mp resolution, a 7x optical zoom (37mm to 260mm), and a large, 3in LCD.
