Olympus µ [mju] Digital 800

 

Olympus has squeezed an 8 megapixel CCD into its latest mju, but does the 800 live up to its heritage?

Olympus Mju 800 review

 

The weatherproof Mju 800 has an unusually wide viewing angle and has 19 scene modes to try out

The Mju has hidden depths with aperture-priority and shutter-priority modes, but alas no fully manual mode.

Olympus Stylus 800

 

Photos turn out very well when printed up to an 8 x 10 size.Good colour rendition.Excellent monitor.Little shutter lag.Zoom shows little distortion.Weatherproof design.

Some noise in images.Compression occasionally too strong at the highest image quality.When seen on a monitor at 100% scale, images look over-processed.

Olympus MJU 800

 

Olympus MJU 800 Review. If you are looking for a digital camera that can operate without a problem in the rain then it is worth taking a look at this camera. It has special protection to keep it safe from the elements.

Stylish weatherproof body ; In camera photography guide ; Lowlight photography

By the end of my tests I was a big fan of the Olympus MJU 800. It is a well made digital camera that takes good photos both indoors and outdoors. The in camera guide to taking photos is a marvelous innovation and should be applauded.

Review of the Olympus mju 800 - Digital SLR Reviews

 

I've tested some great Olympus cameras in the prosumer sector but have not really come across a compact or mju model that I've been able to recommend unreservedly.

Olympus Stylus 800 Digital

 

This is a great camera. An eight megapixel compact, it's cheaper than some seven megapixel cameras.

Beautiful LCD, guide function perfect for beginners, fully manual control options, weatherproof body

Image quality below expectations, camera could be a little smaller

A highly recommended purchase. Although the image quality was not quite up to what we were expecting from an 8 megapixel sensor, for the price it still blew the competition away.

Very high image quality ; Stylish design and water resistance

On-screen guides are cumbersome

Stylish, well-designed camera offers terrific image quality, is water-resistant, and has a big, bright LCD screen.

Olympus Stylus 800

 

The Olympus Stylus 800's photo quality needs to improve to make it a real compact contender.

Solid construction and bright, clear 2.5-inch LCD screen. On-screen help features.

Image quality could be sharper. Slow recycle time.
