Excerpt: Great photos deserve to be admired -- and not as tiny snapshots. They should be at least 13x19 inches. Pigment printers can be pricey, so check out two dye-based alternatives from Canon and Epson.
Conclusion: Olympus Mju 9000 digital compact camera Olympus throws in the Mju 9000 to try and seize the much-desired title of most popular Megazoom camera.

Summary: Olympus has the right idea with their new Stylus-9000 digital compact, and that is to put more optical zoom power into a smaller and more compact body. The idea that is driving their current line of compact ultrazooms is to offer an alternative to the bulkier DSLR-esque bodies (like their SP-590 and...

Cons: Poor at high ISO, Uses xD memory card, Few manual controls
Conclusion: The Olympus Stylus 9000 aka Mju 9000 is a really small 12 megapixel camera featuring a big 10X optical zoom lens. It’s the smallest “super-zoom compact” camera you can get at the moment, and it fits nicely into most pockets.

Cons: No manual controls, Poor ergonomics: tiny controls, small zoom controller and no right grip, Battery life is a tad below average, Poor low-light performance; no long exposure mode, Paltry frame rate for burst mode, So-so movie mode, no HD capability; can’t use zoom or image stabilization while re...
Conclusion: Picture quality is not perfect, but the flaws only become noticeable if you are planning to make larger prints. The Olympus MJU 9000 is certainly a very handy size for a camera offering this much zoom.
Pros: Ease of use - smaller size for longer zoom
Cons: Purple tinge to some photos - photos could be a degree sharper
The Olympus Mju 9000 is a small digital camera but it has plenty of features and a telephoto zoom lens

Cons: Auto modes tend to over-expose shots on bright days, possible to install battery the wrong way around, soft images, uses xD cards instead of SD, sluggish performance
Excerpt: The Olympus mju 9000 camera quite easily fits in the palm of my medium sized man's hands. One of the mju 9000's main advantages is that it's both a little lighter and smaller than its main competitors, the Panasonic Lumix SX200 IS and Canon PowerShot SX200 IS, especially in width, although there's...
