Olympus mju 7040

 

We review the Olympus mju-7040 - the latest compact camera with a 3" LCD, 2GB of memory and in-camera guide mode too!

The rich feature set of a 3” screen, 2GB on-board memory and a stunning 28-196mm equivalent zoom lens makes for a very potent combination. With Olympus' trademark on-camera instructions and no shortage of scene modes on offer we sorry to see the...

Olympus MJU 7040

 

The MJU 7040 can be recharged by attaching it to a computer. It has 2GB of storage built in, a 3 inch LCD screen and is capable of shooting High Definition movies. Although I found the camera easy to use there were a couple of issues with picture...

Ease of use - USB battery charging - 2GB of built in memory - built in manual

Shutter delay - picture quality

I like the fact that Olympus display current settings on the right hand side of the LCD screen. To change a setting you just scroll down and select the setting you want to change. This helps to make the MJU 7040 very easy to use.

Olympus Mju 7040 Review

 

Announced at CES 2010, the Olympus mju 7040 (called the Olympus Stylus 7040 in North America) is a 14-megapixel digital compact camera with a 7x zoom lens, image stabilisation, 720p HD movie recording, in-camera manual, 2GB of internal memory and SD /...

I really wanted to like the Olympus mju 7040. After all, it's a lightweight, absolutely pocketable little snapper that packs a highly versatile 28-196mm equivalent zoom lens and image stabilisation - what's not to like? Well, just a couple of things,...

This is used by my father in law and he finds it a bit confusing at times trying to access the required facilities using the menus.

Suprising Results

 

I really think we have reached a tipping point with the size and weight of some of the current point and shoot cameras as far as camera steadiness is concerned. These cameras are so light and so small that it is a little hard to grip them and to push...

Wide angle lens, good picture quality, adequate video and a good zoom range ; What I was looking for in a camera was all of the above and this Olympus (my first) delivers. I use Canon cameras professionally and have used Canon and Nikon point and...

Lack of a custom white balance- come on Olympus- if Canon can put a custom white balance on their lower end point and shoot cameras, you can too ; The battery life is not good at all- be sure you purchase at least 1 extra ; The power save feature works...
