Olympus Stylus 7000 Reviews

CNET.uk reviews the Olympus Stylus 7000 and writes;
“The Olympus mju 7000 is competent, but offers nothing that makes it stand out. You’d probably be better off with either the mju 5000 or mju 9000
Rating: ★★★☆☆

Cameras.uk reviews the Olympus Stylus 7000 and writes;
“The MJU 7000 sits somewhere in the middle rank when it comes to picture quality. There is nothing that really stands out as a big issue…. If you are looking for a extra zoom for your snapshots, take a look.”
Rating: ★★★★☆

MacWorld reviews the Olympus Stylus 7000 and writes;
“Overall picture quality was good for a compact. I was pleasantly surprised that ISO performance was decent at 400 and 800—unusual in the point and shoot category. Image noise was fairly well controlled, but with some sacrifice to image detail.”
Rating: ★★★½☆

Photoxels reviews the Olympus Stylus 7000 and writes;
“The Olympus Stylus 7000 provides quite a long zoom in a small package. It is point-and-shoot easy to use and give good photos in good lighting.”

Olympus Stylus 7000 Press Release

London, 7 January 2009 – The popular Olympus µ series is once again setting the standard for cameras that combine graceful design with practical innovative features. Confirming Olympus’ status as the leading developer of opto-digital technology, the new models feature compact optical zooms, with magnifications ranging from 5x in the µ-5000, 7x in the µ-7000, to an incredible 10x in the µ-9000. All three cameras feature 12 Megapixel CCDs and a host of features that guarantee brilliant results, including Dual Image Stabilisation to reduce the effect of camera shake, and a remarkable Beauty Mode that smoothes out the completions of people, knocking years of their age! With sleek metal bodies in a range of colours, the Olympus µ-5000 will be available at the end of January, while the µ-9000 and µ-7000 in stores mid February 2009.


The µ-7000 is the happy choice for photographers who like taking photos of their family and friends. Its versatile 7x optical zoom (37-260mm*) is great for group shots and portraits and with Advanced Face Detection, up to 16 faces can be automatically identified in single photo. For the happiest results of all though, select Smile Shot and the µ-7000 will even detect when subjects are smiling and take the photo at just the right moment. A huge 7.6cm/3.0” HyperCrystal II LCD makes framing photos a doddle and allows everyone to see their picture at the same time. The µ-7000 comes in three colours: Starry Silver, Midnight Black and Ocean Blue.

People will love having their photos taken by these sleek and sexy cameras, as µ-9000, µ-7000 and µ-5000 all feature a new Beauty Mode that smoothes out imperfections in the subject’s skin as the photo is taken, for a flawless-looking complexion that knocks years off their age.

The new models have a number of other common features too, including Intelligent Auto Mode, which automatically identifies which of five often-encountered types of scenes the photo being taken matches. In-Camera Panorama Mode is also included so that sequential photos can be combined in-camera to create dramatic wide panorama photographs.

Handling and navigation on the new cameras is easy thanks to illuminated buttons and all models are compatible with xD-Picture Cards and microSD Cards**. The Olympus µ-5000 will be on sale from the end of January, while the µ-9000 and µ-7000 will become available in mid February 2009.
