Olympus Mju 9010 Review

 

Some digicams hit the shelves and at first appear to be run-of-the-mill compacts with little to offer. How blasé can you get!

Quality: about average. Why you would buy the Mju 9010: you want an HD video camera with follow focus; you need a 10x zoom. Why you wouldn't: you need more control over picture taking.

Olympus Stylus 9010

 

I get this Olympus after test some cameras from the latest and I can say this one is good. The picture is non much better than Canon SX200 or Nikon s710. The sensor is standard one but the differens, I think, is to use good lens. Whit this one I find...

No problem at all but for this model Stylus 9010 the Olympus make chipper Case, no more in great Aluminium. The structure is in plastic. :cry:cry!! ;)

Olympus mju 9010

 

Olympus' long-zoom compact just got an upgrade

What does make a good impression is the mju 9010's appearance. The camera's body has been re-designed, transforming the rather ugly shape of the mju 9000 into a very handsome new style. The body is fractionally thicker at 31.1mm, but smaller in other...

Olympus mju-9010 review

 

With its 10x optical zoom and slim design, the µ-9010 seems like a very flexible camera for taking a wide range of shots. On paper it's a promising contender to the other compact ultra-zoom cameras, weighing less than its rivals and costing less than...

A little lighter than most big-zoom compacts, but also a little slower and takes less attractive photos

Olympus Mju 9010 review

 

The Olympus Mju 9010 is a power-packed compact camera that is priced competitively as a compact zoom camera. But will all these powerful specs make the Mju 9010 an outstanding camera? Our point and shoot test will answer that soon enough.

The classy looking Olympus Mju 9010 scores high in terms of features but it shoots just average quality images and videos. If you want long zoom and HD video in this price range, you can consider the Samsung WB550 which has a wider angle lens and more...

Olympus mju 9010 review

 

The mju 9010 promises much but doesn't really deliver. Physically, it's fine. It's compact, portable, affordable and easy to use. But the image quality is weak and the movie mode has serious limitations. If you're shopping for the best compact...

10x zoom range ; In-camera manual ; Straightforward controls

Weak HD movie mode ; Below-average definition ; Clunky panoramas

Conclusion The mju 9010 is a pretty plain camera that turns in a pretty plain performance. It's £30 to £40 cheaper than the class-leading Panasonic Lumix TZ10 superzoom, but so it should be, because it's nowhere near as good. As do-it-all compact...

Olympus Mju 9010

 

This long-zoom compact digital camera has 10x optical zoom lens, 2GB of internal memory and more. How about the image quality?

10x optical zoom ; Good flash exposure ; Only a few noticeable purple fringes ; 2GB built-in memory ; USB Charging

Images lack good sharpness ; Loss in detail and noise level is high at ISO400 ; Poor focusing in low light ; Slow shot-to-shot time ; Sluggish interface ; Insufficient shortcuts for basic operations ; Acceptable HD video quality

The new compact digital camera, Olympus Mju 9010 has a healthy list of features that includes 10x optical zoom, 2GB built-in memory, 720p HD video recording and HDMI out. However, it has barely acceptable performance in terms of speed and image quality.

First take: Olympus Mju 9010

 

This compact has a large onboard storage memory, something that other current point-and-shoots lack.

Good!

Olympus Mju 9010 review

 

Olympus Mju 9010's compact design does not betray its optical zoom performance. That is precisely this mega zoom camera's spearhead. It is small and light enough to put in your pocket and it is equipped with a large focal range with which you can...

The Olympus Mju 9010 is in itself a pretty good camera. It is a camera with a large optical range with which you can photograph all-round in a relatively simple way, as the theory goes. Whoever is looking for a small format, lightweight camera, but...
