Summary: During my review of the Olympus Stylus 7010, I found a beginner-level camera with one of the larger that you'll find in a sub-$200 camera. The Stylus 7010 also offers some interesting features, what Olympus calls "magic filters," which are that allow for effects such as fish eye, among others.
Pros: At less than $200, this camera is a great value, Large (7X) optical zoom lens rarely found on models in this price range, Super macro mode works great for extreme close-up photography, Can see explanations of most features through "?" button, "Magic" filters add some interesting shooting options
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: 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.
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
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.
Summary: Mit ihrem zweifarbigen Gehäuse – wahlweise silberfarben-schwarz, grau-schwarz oder pink-schwarz – ist die Olympus Mju 7010 ein echter Hingucker. Auch mit ihrer Ausstattung, allem voran dem 7fach-Zoomobjektiv mit einer Brennweite ab 28 Millimetern, muss sich die Digitalkamera nicht verstecken.
