Olympus Mju 1040

 

A Mju with plenty of mojo

Stylish appearance, fast and reliable, lots of features for the asking price

Underpowered zoom and flash, occasional image issues, small and unwieldy buttons

The Mju 1040 is an impressive compact camera characterised by style, portability and lightning-fast results. Aside from a few minor performance issues, it ticks nearly every box on a casual photographer's wish list.
