PocketLint has reviewed the Olympus Mju 700, a 7.1 megapixels point-and-shoot digital camera featuring ‘BrightCapture Technology’ which will allow you to take perfectly exposed shot in low light withouth having to use flash. The camera also has weatherproof metal body with 3x optical zoom (37-111mm equivalent) and a large 2.5″ LCD Screen
“Colour rendition is natural while focusing seemed a tad awkward in macro or super-macro settings or when shooting in low lighting. The lens is on the soft side and all my shots benefited from a small amount of sharpening on PC.
As for overall image quality, apart from those issues with softness and slight barrel distortion they’re fantastic. Getting closer on screen reveals the excess noise in shadows and the flattening of some detail due to the camera’s image processing algorithms. If you want to crop into an image or make those larger prints the sensor makes possible, you’ll need to invest in a bigger memory card and shoot in Super High Quality mode to get the most out of the camera.”
