Olympus MJU 840

 

Olympus' range of MJU cameras have consistently offered stylish, durable and feature filled compact cameras for day-to-day point and shoot photography...

Great design, solid build quality, lots of features, low noise levels

White balance presets result in inaccurate colours, some corner softening and minor blurring, slow burst mode

It doesn't take the best pictures on the market but they are fine for small- and medium-sized prints and the combination of style, strength and features makes the MJU 840 an attractive all-purpose point-and-shot.

Buy one for a friend.

Everything about this camera is a pro, there are no cons. I can`t believe this thing is 99 bucks, it should be 200 refurbished, and 400 new

No cons

Great pocket camera

 

I had a Olympus Stylus 500 (5 mp), and a Stylus film camera before that. They are all good quality camera of small size. After two years of abuse by my kids, the Stylus 500's sliding lens cover broke, the weak spot mentioned by other reviewers. I am...

Small size, solid build, good picture quality, use MicroSD card (Big saving on card cost)

HQ video (640x480, 30 fps) can only go 10 seconds. Olympus should specify that
