Olympus [mju:] 1060

 

Another trendy compact from Olympus, with a good range of features included on board

A great-looking camera with some standout features, but some little quirks let it down slightly. Performance is good overall, with plenty of functionality included

Olympus Mju 1060

 

Strong, simple and stylish, but is the price too high?

Build quality, image quality, lens

Menu system, low light performance, value

Although it is quite expensive, the Mju 1060 offers superior build quality, stylish appearance and simplicity of use, combined with very good image quality.

Olympus MJU 1060

 

The Olympus MJU 1060 has a longer lens than most smaller compact digital cameras. Other features worth mentioning include image stabilisation, a 3 inch LCD screen and a super macro mode of 2cm. Picture quality is standard for this type of camera as are...

Style - ease of use - length of zoom

The MJU 1060 does most things well enough. Perhaps focusing could be that bit sharper

When it comes to picture quality, shutter design and the majority of features the MJU 1060 is a fairly typical point and shoot digital camera. The main attraction is the 7x optical zoom lens in a compact body. This is a very handy feature in a smaller...

One for beginners

 

If you are just ­planning to get your feet wet with digital cameras, the Olympus mju 1060 is designed just for you.

Lots of useful modes such as Guide and iAuto mode for beginners ; Slim design ; long zoom range

Poor ISO performance ; video capture could be better

To sum it up, this is the camera for you if you are not completely familiar with cameras in general.

Olympus MJU 1060

 

Stylish compact camera with 7x optical zoom.

7x optical zoom with stabilisation, intuitive beginner modes, 3in display

High noise levels, slow shot-to-shot time, missing several key manual features

Olympus' MJU 1060 is a pretty decent beginner camera with its large screen and bevy of novice modes, but its images have some issues and it can be slow at times.

Whether you're after a little sophistication or a simple camera, the Olympus Mju 1060 delivers both in a stylish package. Its long zoom range will give it a leg up on many 10-megapixel competitors in its price range too.

Stylish ; Easy to use ; Nice mix of auto and manual options ; Good 7x optical zoom

No wide-angle ; Slow between shots ; No optical viewfinder

Conclusion Whether you're after simple or a little sophistication, the Olympus Mju 1060 delivers both in a stylish package. Its long zoom range will give it a leg up on many 10-megapixel competitors in its price range too.

Olympus Mju 1060 Digital Camera Review

 

The Mju 1060 is a recommendable little unit from the Olympus range that truly offers the complete package: 10 mega pixels, 7 times optical zoom, dual image stabilisation, 21 scene modes, in-camera editing capability, face detection and shadow...

A simple but helpful additional feature is the illumination of the function identifiers on the Mju 1060. When the camera is turned on, a function is accessed, or a shooting mode is changed, a green light shines through the majority of buttons making...
