Olympus mju 1010 & 1020


Two virtually identical cameras, but why?

. It is quite a compact camera, measuring 99 x 56.3 x 25.2 mm including the lens, and quite light too, weighing only 135g minus the battery. Incidentally, does anyone know why camera weights are always quoted minus the battery? It's not like you can...

Olympus mju 1020


With its oft-used wedge-shaped design, the Olympus mju series has won many admirers

Wedge-shape design, Backlight buttons

Washed-out images, ISO performance

A well-designed compact that performs well in use but is let down by poor image quality.

Olympus - mju 1020


Sporting a similar shape to its other mju (μ) siblings, the 1020 is a glossy gadget with an impressive 7x optical zoom; pretty decent for a compact camera. It's this lens functionality that helps the μ1020 ...

The Olympus μ1020 is an attractive camera with good functionality and quick response times. The 7x optical zoom is generous for a compact camera, although the motor is a little noisy. Generally, picture quality is reasonable for snaps but don't expect...

Olympus MJU 1020


Having looked at several models in Olympus' latest refresh of its compact range it has become obvious the improvements are fairly minor. However that ...

Crisp pictures, great design, lots of features, 7x optical zoom

Sluggish burst mode, some colour and exposure issues

Packing in a 7x optical zoom into a slim body Olympus' MJU 1020 is a fantastic all around point and shoot. It takes nice snaps, has a ton of features and looks sensational. Our only major concern is the slow burst mode, which may impact some users.

Olympus Stylus Digital 1020


Great images begin with great optics, and the new Stylus line-up offers amazing optics. The Stylus 1010 and Stylus 1020 feature new lens technology that enables the 7x optical zoom lens (37mm-260mm equivalent in 35mm photography, f3.3-5.3) to magnify...

The 840 and 1010 cameras are equipped with large, high-resolution 2.7-inch HyperCrystal LCD screens with high contrast and anti-glare technology for clear visibility, even when pictures are composed in bright sunlight. The HyperCrystal LCDs also offer...

Olympus Mju 1020


The Olympus Mju 1020 offers a broad feature set in a slim, stylish package, but average image quality and memory card restrictions may dissuade buyers.

Slim, stylish design ; 7x optical zoom ; Sensor-shift image stabilisation

No viewfinder ; Must use Olympus-branded xD card for in-built panorama function ; Fingerprint magnet

Those after a stylish point-and-shoot with an affordable price tag and more features than you know what to do with, will be happy with the Olympus Mju 1020. If you want to do more than just take happy snaps, we suggest taking a few test shots before...

Olympus Stylus 1020 Review


With a 7x zoom, the 10 megapixel Olympus Stylus 1020 packs a long-reach punch not seen in many ultracompacts.

Overall I think the Olympus Stylus 1020 performed quite well, producing some great snapshots with little or no effort. The SteadyShot shake reduction feature on this camera worked very well, helping those shoot from the hip at any moment shots turn out...

Olympus Mju 1020 Digital Camera Review


To put it simply, you get what you pay for with the Olympus Mju 1020 so if you're in the market for a low-fuss, rugged, point-and-shoot digital compact that you can take and use virtually anywhere, this palm-sized, lightweight unit is a great option....

The neatly packed Mju 1020 kit includes the camera, strap, dedicated battery and charger, a USB cable, an AV cable, software (Olympus Master 2), manual, warranty card and a MicroSD attachment MASD-1. Unfortunately, it seems to be an industry standard...
