Conclusion: The Olympus Mju 1060 is a compact 10 megapixel camera with a huge 7X optical zoom lens which is something you wouldnâ€™t expect in a camera this size. Thereâ€™s a sizable 3 inch LCD on the back along with backlit buttons and an ISO range which reaches 6400 which makes it SOUND like a good low-light camera.
Pros: Lots of zoom in a pocketable form factor, Huge viewable LCD and backlit buttons, Intelligent Auto mode, very good macro and plenty of scene modes, Perfect Shot Preview, Shadow Adjustment and playback edit tools, Decent image quality up to ISO 400
Cons: No manual controls, Below average battery life, Poor low-light performance; no AF assist lamp, Sensor-shift stabilization and zoom cannot be used in movies; xD-card requirement, Disappointing burst mode; so-so performance
Summary: : The Olympus Mju 1060 is a very good camera - however it has some minor flaws - which if corrected would make this an excellent camera. One of the most obvious flaws with this camera was the lack of focus assist lamp - this meant that the camera would often fail to focus correctly indoors in low light - so if you often go out to low light venues then this camera simply isn't for you. When indoor shots were in focus images looked great with excellent skin tones.
Pros: Very good colour - good skin tones, 7x optical zoom lens, Large high quality 3.0 inch screen, Ultra compact, stylish metal body, Includes face detection and anti-shake technologies, Quick - with some very quick continuous shooting modes (at 3mp), Intelligent Auto mode, Excellent built in help and guide
Cons: Average battery life, Menu system could be simpler to use, Lacks manual white balance, No focus assist lamp indoor photos often out of focus!, Image stabilisation doesn't work in video mode, Takes XD memory cards slow, and max size 2gb
Summary: Whether you're after a little sophistication or a simple camera, the Olympus Mju 1060 delivers both in a stylish package. Its long zoom range will give it a leg up on many 10-megapixel competitors in its price range too.
Pros: Stylish, Easy to use, Nice mix of auto and manual options, Good 7x optical zoom
Cons: No wide-angle, Slow between shots, No optical viewfinder
