Olympus mju:1000: 10 megapixel, 3x optical zoom, compact digital camera

Share


Olympus
expanded their ‘mju’ range of digital cameras still further with the mju:1000, boasting 10 megapixels in a compact shell.

Now megapixels aren’t everything, sure, but this packs more punch for image capture than any of the other compacts Olympus have released in the range.

There’s a 3x optical zoom which the Fine Zoom feature can take to 5x. There’s BrightCapture for photos in low light, 20 pre-defined capture modes, digital image stabilisation, and Perfect Fix button for correcting blur, backlight, and red-eye.

Casing is weatherproof, as with all in the mju range, and there’s a built-in help system. The camera comes with lithium-ion battery and charger, and will be available for around £330 from October.
