Olympus mju 5010


Slim build, slim pickings?

Slim and slight but packed with features to explore – performance lets it down in some areas, though.

Olympus MJU 5010


This camera is priced about right. Picture quality matches up to most cameras in this price bracket. I found the camera easy to use and it fits easily into most pockets.

Ease of use - USB battery charging - 1GB of built in memory - built in manual

Turn on time - shutter delay

Olympus has recently included details of current settings on the right hand side of the LCD screen. This makes it easy to see current settings and to change them.

Takes picture very fast. Great clarity. Excellent modes to choose from or just use the Intellegent Auto mode and you don't have to worry about choosing. Very compact. Beautiful color. Love the beauty mode and the in camera black and white and sepia...

So far so good :)

Great for what we needed!!


This camera has been great for taking pictures at family events, travel, and other misc. places. The camera is easy to use and download pictures. The only problem we have is that red eye seems to be bad in certain lights and the pictures will blur if...

Easy to Use, Lightweight, Compact

Bad in Low Light

If compared to Canon IXUS 80is, I would prefer Canon eventhough it is 8 mp but would use the Olympus as a backup. Would now go back to Canon IXUS series anytime as the colors are brighter and softer. Canon Ixus series is really easy to hold with one...

I too bought this camera from JBHifi with a 15% discount from sale price as this Olympus is 14 mp with 5x optical zoom. My current Canon Ixus 80 is only a 8 $mp. Pros Cheap, 14 mp 5 x optical zoom in built 1 gb memory 8 mp, rechargable through usb

Like the other reviewer, hard to see in sunlight, hard to hold in one hand to take pictures.

This camera has some brilliance to it , 14 mega pixels, really good zoom and lots of settings. It takes a very good photo and is very light, tiny and oh so compact that you can't help but like it physically. But the real downer is the LCD screen which...

Very small, light and takes good quality photos. There are lots of setting to play around with and if you read the book you may actually be able to work this camera.

I recently took it outside to take photos of the beach and sky which would have been great if I could have seen anything I was pointing the camera at. The LCD screen is utterly useless in daylight... you just aim and hope for the best. I am quite...

This has to be the worst camera I have ever purchased and I will be going back to the more reliable and user friendly Canon. I have only had the camera for 4 weeks and have been completely frustrated with so many aspects of it.

Small, lightweight and compact. Video quality is very high. Price is reasonable.

Not much about this camera I have liked to be honest. Poor battery life, slow response, night shots are not very clear, images are often distorted after using the zoom lense, operating buttons are way too small - often takes several attempts at...

Olympus Mju 5010


Excellent camera, although I am still trying to navigate the operating instructions - see below ; I purchased the camera (reluctantly) to replace an identical but earlier model which got damaged while on holiday - the newer model is equally easy to use...

Detailed instructions are only available via the computer - I would much rather have had a 'paper copy' handbook to refer to
