Summary: Sub-$100 cameras are tough to recommend, despite the incredibly low price. Most of the time, these types of cameras have so many drawbacks that they're going to be extremely frustrating to use, making that money you saved seem hardly worth the hassle.
Summary: The mju 7010 is versatile and easy to use, and it is capable of producing good results in most normal situations. However its poor low light performance, limited battery duration and relatively high price make it less appealing in comparison to its many rivals.
Pros: Lens quality, compact size, build quality
Cons: Low light focusing, slow performance, battery life
Summary: The Olympus Stylus 7010 is an ultra-compact with a 7X wide-angle optical zoom lens, built-in stabilization and a 12 megapixels sensor. Image quality has both good and less good aspects, falling just short of a good Rating. In terms of speed though, this digital camera does well.
Pros: Natural image colors, Good white-balance with light cast under tungsten, Good lens sharpness, Mostly reliable exposure, Very fast and responsive, except for EC and some review features, Excellent LCD visibility
Cons: High noise at all ISO, Fine details are muddled by noise-reduction, Color shift at ISO 1600, Too few zoom steps, Very limited feature set, no custom white-balance, no short self-timer, Below average image stabilization, Short battery-life
Summary: A big step forward from the old mju-7000, the Olympus mju-7010 combines a 7x wideangle zoom with a slim body. It looks great, handles well and its pictures are pretty good too. An in-camera panorama feature and some neat 'magic filters' are a welcome bonus
Pros: 7x wideangle zoom; good pictures at medium to high ISOs; attractive design.
Cons: Fine detail isn't the best we've seen; focus tracking could be quicker.
Excerpt: The plastic µ-7010 isn’t as alluring as its aluminium-clad rivals, but there are a few strips of metal to reinforce it and the overall effect is reasonably smart. The 2.7in screen has excellent viewing angles and the backlit buttons add a touch of class to proceedings.
Conclusion: I would describe the Olympus MJU 7010 as a standard compact camera offering that bit extra zoom. Not every camera can stand out for the crowd and I would say this camera is good enough without being anything special.
Pros: Very good. I found it easy to track down the settings I was looking for.
Conclusion: The Mju 7010 is coolly minimalist in appearance and whilst at times less can indeed be more, here it’s simply a bit un-involving. Take away the better than average zoom range and the fun effects filters and this is just another run of the mill compact that fails to excel or excite, the blame for...
Pros: User friendly operation, solid construction, portably pocket sized, quick and responsive for the most part
Cons: Still images are flat and dull in appearance straight out of the camera (if not utilising magic effects filters), with loss of focus towards frame edges when shooting at maximum wide angle. No HD movies, which seems amiss when similarly priced rivals are offering this
Summary: Despite the fact that Olympus has revamped its formerly rather tired looking menu icons and provided users with a funkier if cartoon-ish interface, plus shoehorned in some creative effects filters and user friendly features, the Mju 7010 is an otherwise fairly run-of-the-mill snapshot camera for the...
