Olympus Stylus 9000

Digital Photography Interface
23 September 2013
  • 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 compactâ€� camera you can get at the moment, and it fits nicely into most pockets. The camera has a large and very usable 2.7 inch LCD on the back and backlit controls for operation in low-light.
  • Pros: 10X optical zoom lens; this is the smallest super-zoom compact camera, Very usable LCD screen in low/bright light; backlit buttons, Easy to use Intelligent Auto mode and picture taking help tooltips, Perfect Shot Preview, Shadow Adjustment and playback editing tools, Decent image quality below ISO 400
  • 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 recording

Printer Test: Canon PIXMA Pro9000 and Epson Stylus Photo 1400

Pop Photo
27 February 2010
  • 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. This segment has been in the limelight for the last few years now, not in the last place because of the innovative advancements that Panasonic has achieved in this segment. Many similar cameras have been launched to this market lately, such as the Canon SX200 IS, Panasonic Lumix TZ7 and Samsung WB500 (HZ10W U.S.A. model).

Olympus Stylus-9000 Review

Digital Camera Review
11 September 2009
  • Summary: The Olympus Stylus-9000 finds itself in a category of camera just below the ultrazoom, but has just enough focal power to get itself out of the standard 3x zone. It aims to provide a broad spectrum of zoom range and 12 megapixels of high-resolution. The 12 megapixel club seems to the sweet spot where noise is filtered out because of larger pixel sites on DSLRs, but this mentality doesn't transfer well to the image sensor that is less than an inch on most...
  • Pros: Fast AF and shutter response, Great optical zoom power, Faithful color reproduction, Compact body that's great for traveling, Deciphered contrast well in most scenes, iAuto works well
  • Cons: Poor ISO performance, Various forms of image degradation (vignetting, fringing, lens flare), Uses xD memory card instead of SD, Very little manual control over exposure

Cameras
8 August 2014
  • 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

Good Gear Guide.au
1 April 2010
  • Summary: There is plenty to like about the Olympus Mju 9000: it has a great zoom lens, useful in-camera editing functions and panorama stitching. You might have to play around with it in order to get the best image quality, but it can take clear and vibrant photos.
  • Pros: 10x optical zoom, illuminated control buttons, great super-macro mode
  • 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

Olympus mju 9000

  • 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 only 5mm or so difference between them.

28 May 2009
  • Excerpt: This 12-megapixel camera has a 28-280mm (film-equivalent) lens. Image stabilisation is by sensor shift. The 67mm LCD screen has good resolution, contrast and colour. Construction is rugged and attractive. Control buttons are small and will be tricky for thick-fingered users. Manual controls are limited - there are no P, S or A modes. The range of scene modes covers most situations, and they adjust the camera well enough for specific subjects and lighting.
