Summary: However, the Stylus 7010 has a few awkward features, especially the navigational buttons on the back. The directional buttons are not raised, making it easy to have your finger slip and push the wrong button. It's also possible to end up in an odd shooting mode because of a tricky menu structure.
Pros: At less than $200, this camera is a great value, Large (7X) optical zoom lens rarely found on models in this price range
Cons: Navigation button is awkward to use, Menu structure is a little confusing to use, Images seem a little flat, not vibrant, Only one 16:9 ratio resolution option, no other non-standard ratios available, Low-light photos have some noise
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: Consumers have always loved tiny cameras and Olympus has long been the industry leader when it comes to producing mini-cams. Their “Pen” series half-frame cameras were small before small was cool, and the first Stylus was a tiny clamshell style 35mm point and shoot.
Pros: Long 7x zoom, Super thin, ultra-compact, Faithful color reproduction
Cons: No manual exposure, Noisy images, Slightly slow shot-to-shot
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.
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
