>> REVIEWS (last update: 30.05.06)

LetsGoDigital reviewed the Olympus MJU 700 and wrote:
“The Olympus Mju 700 gives you good image quality, the colour reproduction is fine and the user friendly operation is a joy to experience. The quality of the automatic white balance pictures is very good and hardly need to be corrected. The integrated pre-programmed scène modes make it much easier to take complicated pictures. The built-in Help function in particular is a welcome alternative to ploughing through an instruction manual.”

T3.UK reviewed the Olympus MJU 700 and wrote:
“Considering the low price and overall thinness, there’s little to complain about.This is the Geoff Boycott of cameras: it might lack flair, but it does a solid job in all conditions. If you want a reliable camera for all seasons, then look no further.”

Megapixel reviewed the Olympus MJU 700 and wrote:
“With the sensitivity set to 64 ISO, noise is undetectable in photos captured outdoors and with good light. Images captured at 100 ISO are likewise very good, noise being only detectable in shadow areas. At 200 and 400 ISO, noise becomes increasingly visible, and can be found in areas that contain uniform colours as well as in shadows. Nevertheless, 400 ISO is useable in bright daylight, and can produce good photos while ensuring that the camera has a sufficiently high shutter speed to freeze movement.”

ePhotozinet reviewed the Olympus MJU 700 and wrote:
“The well-thought-out design of the Olympus Mju 700, makes it a very easy camera to use. All of the controls are within easy reach of your thumb and the wedge-shaped body feels more secure to hold than other ultra-compact digital cameras I have used.
The quality of images produced is good, although I would have liked the SHQ mode to have used less compression to reduce the appearance of Jpeg artefacts in the images. The well-controlled noise levels up to ISO800 make this a very flexible camera for shooting in all sorts of conditions.”

Pocketlint reviewed the Olympus MJU 700 and wrote:
“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.”

>> PRESS RELEASE

London, 26 January 2006 – It’s a problem we’re all familiar with, the atmospheric lighting in bars, candlelit restaurants and at concerts looks great but flash photography leaves everyone looking like they’ve been caught in a headlights of an oncoming juggernaut. Luckily the Olympus µ (mju) 700 has the perfect solution built in.

Olympus’s innovative BrightCapture Technology allows the 7.1 million pixel µ (mju) 700 to take perfectly exposed shots in low light without having to use flash, so all of the romance, drama and excitement of the occasion are perfectly preserved. And as BrightCapture also boosts the power of the camera’s large 6.4cm LCD screen, there’s no more groping around in the dark to frame photos either.
