Olympus Mju 9010 Reviews

TrustedReviews reviews the Olympus Mju 9010 and writes;
“The Olympus mju 9010 is a good looking and well made camera, with a well designed easy-to-use interface, with a price and feature set that put it in the middle of the long-zoom pack. The massive internal memory, built-in manual and downloadable software are useful innovations, but the sluggish performance, lack of AF assist lamp and image quality issues will limit its appeal.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

LetsGoDigital reviews the Olympus Mju 9010 and writes;
“we have concluded that the camera is successful in the practical sense, and that it only has a few glitches in the technical aspect. We attribute this to the high resolution on a small sensor, which has several negative effects… “

“On a more positive note all my outdoor photos are sharply focused and these levels are retained well as you move out towards the edges of the photos. The colours are well balanced, although in my second outdoor shot the blue of the sky looks overdone for my own personal taste.”

Pcworld reviews the Olympus Mju 9010 and writes;
“Focusing in good lighting happened fairly quick though in low light the Mju 9010 failed many times. The dual IS system worked efficiently though, even toward the end of the tele, it let us capture images at very reasonable sharpness.”

PCAdvisor.uk reviews the Olympus Mju 9010 and writes;
“Images showed good sharpness at and around the centre whereas corner softness was visible. Chromatic aberrations were not a big issue as even in bright areas they were hardly visible. The slight barrel distortion was seen but not noticeable enough to ruin the image quality.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

PhotographyBlog reviews the Olympus Mju 9010 and writes;
“During the test, the Olympus mju 9010 produced images of distinctly better quality than its little sister the mju 7040. At most focal lengths and subject distances, the lens was noticeably sharper, especially off centre, where the 7040’s 7x zoom often struggled.”

Olympus Mju 9010 Features

HD movie (MPEG-4 AVC / H.264) recording
Extended HDTV (1280 x 720 pixels) movie recording is possible thanks to the advanced MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 movie compression format.*6 *7 *8 Compatible with the SD/SDHC memory card, movie recording can be started and stopped at the touch of a button.

Made possible by the incorporation of a 2 GB memory, photo-surfing allows you to download favourite pictures from your PC back to your camera, search desired pictures according to recording information such as “date”, “iAUTO” and “scene mode”, and view them on the camera. It’s just like the camera version of netsurfing. With the provided [ib] software, users can create image collections based on various criteria such as who is in the picture or where it was shot.*9

[ib] software
To help people make the most of the possibilities of digital imaging, Olympus has developed a powerful new software solution called [ib] to connect “images” (pictures and movies) and “humans” based on the concepts of “easy”, “safe” and “fun”.
[ib] allows you to organize old pictures, as well as newly recorded pictures. When the camera is connected to a PC for charging the battery, newly recorded pictures are automatically transferred to the PC so you never forget to back up your precious pictures. The software automatically classifies the pictures according to their recording date when uploading to the PC. It is also capable of recognizing the persons shot as subjects and classify the pictures accordingly. In addition, it can assign recording location information for each classified event or each picture. By making classification and organization of multiple pictures simple and easy, [ib] enables you to easily find the pictures you’re looking for.

[ib]: The software was named after phrases such as “Image Bridging”, “Image Browsing” and “Image Brightening”.
