Olympus Mju 1030 camera

 

The Mju 1030 SW is the first in Olympus' ‘Tough' series with a 10-megapixel image sensor. Waterproof to 10 metres, it is also well-capable of withstanding a drop of two metres and can tolerate temperatures down to -10 degrees Celsius and pressures of...

After just six months, the camera started to have problems with its flash. I noticed that when I took pictures in low light, the images came out very dark. Other times, images looked overexposed. Since my camera was still under warranty, I took it to...

Olympus MJU 500

 

Olympus' MJU Digital 500 is a disappointing offering in the 5 megapixel digital camera category. We have come to expect great things from them, with ...

New user friendly

Blocky design, poor menu system

A fairly poor choice in this price point, especially compared to Olympus' other offerings. Only recommended for new users

Olympus Mju 710

 

Its weather-resistant body and high ISO might make this Mju sound like a good vacation camera, but disappointing performance, poor image quality, and a mediocre LCD seriously hurt its potential.

High ISO sensitivity offers more flexibility in low light; captures fast action shots

Poor image quality; mediocre performance; no manual controls; LCD washes out in bright light

Despite the attraction of a weather-resistant body, the Olympus Mju 710 falls short with disappointing performance and overprocessed images.

Olympus [mju:] Stylus 790 SW review

 

The ultimate hardy compact?

Genuinely rugged camera ; Waterproof, without the padding ; Elegant body shape ; Guide mode is like a photo-tutor ; Well-saturated low ISO images

Rugged wins over performance ; Underexposure in low light ; Over exposure with flash ; Blotchy high ISO images ; Price Comparison ; Olympus ? [mju:] Stylus 790 SW

All of this means, if you are worried about getting your camera wet, if you are concerned about carrying a camera for those 362 soggy days the UK gets every year, or if you are frightened about getting sand or snow in your parts the Olympus ? [mju:]...

Test shots were rather contrasty with above-average saturation and blocked out highlights in brightly-lit conditions. Low-light shots contained a scattering of stuck pixels but were otherwise relatively noise free. These shots had a more usable dynamic...
