Olympus Stylus Digital 1200

 

The Stylus 820 and 1200 feature a 2.7-inch HyperCrystal LCD, which is great for easily composing, editing and sharing images with friends and family. Additionally, capturing breathtaking landscapes is a snap with the in- camera panorama mode offered in...

The Stylus 1200 includes a Digital Image Stabilization Mode, which boosts ISO sensitivity and shutter speed for capturing crisp, clear pictures that are free from the blur sometimes caused by camera shake or moving subjects - in virtually any shooting...

Stylus 1200

 

The Summer 2007 lineup of new Olympus consumer digital cameras contains not one but two 12-megapixel models. That is a full 4,000 x 3,000 pixels, certainly more than enough to crop and zoom to your heart's content. It also brings up a number of...

12 megapixel resolution, Bright hi-res 2.7-inch LCD with backlight boost, 640 x 480 movies at a full 30 fps, Advanced face detection mode, Weatherproof body, Digital image stabilization, PreSet Shooting Mode lets you select best setting

No voice recording mode, Only 3X optical zoom, xD-Picture card harder to find and more expensive, No underwater modes

The Stylus 1200, like other Olympus cameras, has both a macro and a super-macro mode. That can be a bit cumbersome. The macro mode goes from eight inches to infinity whereas super-macro goes from 1.2 inches to a bit over two feet. Still, it's nice to...

No voice recording mode, Only 3X optical zoom, xD-Picture card harder to find and more expensive, No underwater modes

The ultra-compact Stylus 1200 breaks a new barrier for Olympus as the first Stylus camera with 12-megapixels. That gives you a lot of resolution to work with. It is also an attractive, easy-to-use point & shoot camera with a large 2.7-inch hi-res LCD,...

Olympus MJU 1200

 

If you are a fan of past Olympus MJU cameras then the MJU 1200 will be right up your alley. It doesn't differ much from previous units, bringing the s...

Great design, guide mode good for beginners, nice panorama options, relatively low noise

Extremely slow shot-to-shot time, burst mode only operates at 2048x1536, corner softening, slightly pink flesh tones

If you can live with the very slow shot-to-shot times and low resolution burst mode Olympus's MJU 1200 offers a sturdy and stylish compact, which captures good images and has a nice array of features.

Olympus Mju 1200 12Mp compact camera review

 

The Olympus Mju 1200 doesn't differ much from previous units, bringing the same features list, weatherproof build and stylish design to the table. This time around Olympus has packed in a 12Mp sensor which does improve the image quality a little, but...

A sturdy and stylish compact camera then, the Olympus Mju 1200 offers good features but performance sluggish.

Olympus Mju 1200

 

The top-of-the-line mju 1200 features a 12-megapixel sensor, as well as face detection and shadow adjust.

Gorgeous styling ; Sturdy construction ; Simple to operate

Idiosyncratic controls ; Uninspired feature set ; Only supports xD card format

The Olympus Mju 1200 is certainly capable and stylish. It's perfect for those search of a good-looking, pocketable point-and-shoot, and don't want to worry about the mechanics of photography. It's pricey, though, heading down the Canon IXUS route of...

Olympus mju 1200

 

The weatherproofed Olympus mju 1200 sports a 3x optical zoom covering 35-105mm......

Good operation, design

Inferior image quality

A good-looking compact let down on closer inspection by poor image quality and flimsy construction.
