Olympus Mju-mini

 

Never wishing to be seen to stand idly by while the competition innovates, Olympus is always looking for ways to develop its record-breaking Mju cameras. Last time the sacrosanct design was refined brought about a format evolution, from film to...

Size, looks, function and start up time

Focus can be temperamental, flash flare in the viewing screen, power button too near shutter release.

Overall the Mju-mini is a pocket full of dynamite. The design looks great and Olympus fans will be delighted by the familiarity of the controls and functions. It's nice to see Olympus getting the bit between their teeth again and developing their...

Olympus Mju mini | Stylus Verve

 

With the µ-mini DIGITAL, Olympus has proven that making an unconventional camera design without sacrifising handling comfort is not an impossible task. This unique digital lifestyle icon is an exciting high quality product that proves the sceptics wrong.

Olympus MJU Mini Digital

 

Olympus MJU Mini Digital Review. This is one of the smallest digital camera around. Certainly small enough to fit into a pocket. The downside of the camera's very small size is the fact it can only cope with a very small optical zoom lens.

So much style ; Picture quality ; Ease of use

Only uses Olympus xD Picture cards ; Macro/Close Up shots ; Flash range limited

Best camera in terms of style for 2004. The final total is dragged down by the low macro mark. Otherwise this camera comes highly recommended.

Olympus Mju Mini Digital

 

As a gadget, this makes a great camera, and as a camera it makes a great gadget. The Mini features the same high-quality features as the fully-fledged Mju, only its smaller, slicker and with a much bigger screen. At less than 150, the Mju Mini is clearly

Olympus Mju Mini Digital

 

The Mju Mini has an interesting size and shape - it's the smallest of the cameras on test and has a wonderful curved body.

The pictures it took weren't bad for its lower specification, but you get the feeling that you're paying a premium for the packaging rather than the camera technology.

Olympus MJU Mini

 

Olympus typically stick with a fairly traditional, conservative design for their digital cameras, so when we pulled the MJU Mini Digital from the box,...

Looks great, well designed

Poor functionality

A very small, very stylish camera that is a great offering for beginner photographers.
