Olympus' new eight mega pixel compact snapper
Eight mega pixel compacts appear to be everywhere at the moment. The latest entrant is the Mju Digital 800 from Olympus. Set to go on sale in July the eight mega pixel model features a tough weatherproof body which is finished in either silver metal or dark blue. Features include a 3x optical zoom, nine scene programme automatic exposure modes and a Macro shooting option. Images can be framed and reviewed on its 6.4cm LCD monitor and then stored on either the camera’s 19MB of internal memory or an x-D storage card. The camera also shoots video in VGA quality with sound.
