Olympus mju 820 review

 

With its lightweight, weatherproof case, the 820 is perfect for beach holidays and sports.

Weatherproof, ultra-compact, a bit slow.

Olympus mju 820 8Mp compact camera

 

The Olympus mju 820s subtly asymmetrical design makes it feel much smaller than it really is.

The Olympus mju 820 is a highly impressive camera with strong specifications and image quality. It earns our Best Buy award.

Olympus Mju820 8Mp compact camera

 

The Olympus Mju820's subtly asymmetrical design makes it feel much smaller than it really is. It's only when you compare it side-by-side with other compact cameras you become aware of its slightly larger dimensions.

The Olympus Mju820 is an impressive camera, with a high specification and good image quality at a very competitive price.

Olympus mju 820 review (Olympus Stylus 820)

 

Can the Olympus mju 820 review (Olympus Stylus 820), an affordable weatherproof camera from Olympus really impress?

Olympus MJU 820

 

The Olympus MJU 820 is a rare weatherproof digital camera. Its metal body and various seals will protect it from most types of weather. It has 8 megapixels and a 5x optical zoom lens.

Weatherproof - neat design

Sun glare

If you are looking for a digital camera you can use in just about all weathers than this camera is worth a close look. It just about fits into a pocket and is available in four different colours. It has a longer zoom than most pocket sized cameras.

Olympus Mju 820

 

As part of a family of three, the Mju 820 should offer something that the others don't have. All we have to do is work out what that is. Olympus Mju 820 Specification

Weatherproof; Help guide; Best bits of two cameras in one

Backing out of the Menu is annoying

Olympus mju 820

 

Can this affordable weatherproof camera really impress?

Weatherproofing, Wedge-shaped design

Soft, Noisy images, Muddling interface

A mixed bag of a compact that impresses little aside from its weatherproof capabilities

Expert Review

 

Olympus's MJU 820 doesn't capture brilliant pictures, but its combination of a stylish and sturdy design along with some nifty features and funky guide mode make it a reasonable happy-snap camera for novice users.

Beautiful design, splash proof, fast burst mode, cool panorama feature

Soft pictures, white balance presets aren't entirely accurate, slow shot-to-shot time
