Olympus Mju 1200 12Mp compact camera review

 

The Olympus Mju 1200 doesn't differ much from previous units, bringing the same features list, weatherproof build and stylish design to the table. This time around Olympus has packed in a 12Mp sensor which does improve the image quality a little, but...

A sturdy and stylish compact camera then, the Olympus Mju 1200 offers good features but performance sluggish.

Good operation, design

Inferior image quality

A good-looking compact let down on closer inspection by poor image quality and flimsy construction.

Olympus Mju 1200

 

Proof that looks aren't everything

A good camera, but promises too much. It has issues with fine detail, but is perfect for the point-and-shoot user

Great design, guide mode good for beginners, nice panorama options, relatively low noise

Extremely slow shot-to-shot time, burst mode only operates at 2048x1536, corner softening, slightly pink flesh tones

If you can live with the very slow shot-to-shot times and low resolution burst mode Olympus's MJU 1200 offers a sturdy and stylish compact, which captures good images and has a nice array of features.

Olympus Mju 1200

 

The top-of-the-line mju 1200 features a 12-megapixel sensor, as well as face detection and shadow adjust.

Gorgeous styling ; Sturdy construction ; Simple to operate

Idiosyncratic controls ; Uninspired feature set ; Only supports xD card format

The Olympus Mju 1200 is certainly capable and stylish. It's perfect for those search of a good-looking, pocketable point-and-shoot, and don't want to worry about the mechanics of photography. It's pricey, though, heading down the Canon IXUS route of...
