Written on: 02/04/2004 by Lawrence Owens (4 reviews written)

OK - with this Olympus Mju II 35mm compact camera we are talking lens. Lens, lens, lens. There is simply no comparison with other cameras in this price range. The quality of that 35mm 2.8 Olympus optic is fantastic (the 80mm zoom option is a little less impressive). I own a Nikon F3 with this camera as a backup, and it is almost impossible to tell which camera took which pictures. Seeing as it is made of plastic, it is also durable (I have dropped mine loads of times with no perceptible effect… Read Full Review

“After owning my Olympus Mju II 35mm compact camera for...”

Written on: 13/09/2002 by Marco. (1 review written)

After owning my Olympus Mju II 35mm compact camera for over 2 years I am still amazed by the image quality of this camera regarding the sharpness and the exposure. In response to some comments made that the camera has problem with auto-focus, I can share my experience that helps me to have excellent results consistently. Two things seem to be important. First is to gently press the shutter release button half-way until the green indicator light comes on and then again gently and steadily to… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/08/2002 by Nigel. (1 review written)

I have been surprised by the high quality of results from the Olympus Mju II. On a clear night, with ISO 400 film, it even seems to cope well with illuminated buildings; don't turn the flash off, but leave the camera to make its own guesses. Realistic-looking night time shots result. Watch out for the red-eye reduction mode - it stays switched on not just when you close the camera, but even when you change films… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2002 by junn. (1 review written)

The Olympus Mju II may not be a perfect 35mm compact camera but it's great for family pictures. There are some negative comments although majority are positive. This camera is very competitive to its level in terms of quality pictures and price. It's natural not to please everybody. What you see is what you get… Read Full Review

Written on: 06/02/2002 by Richard. (1 review written)

Overall, the Olympus Mju II camera is very good. It takes excellent photographs. Sharp from edge to edge. Lots of functions, which makes this camera very versatile. Small size makes it easy to carry inconspicuously. The fast lens means it can take photographs in a wide variety of lighting situations.
There are two drawbacks. The predictive autofocusing (where the camera is supposed to focus on non-centred subjects) doesn't work as intended. I've used it for group and self-timer shots and… Read Full Review

Written on: 29/01/2002 by roedi. (1 review written)

It is very compact which is the reason for the short delay between pressing the button and taking the photo - the lens has to be positioned some mm in front of the body. Its design makes it highly durable espescially when it's switched off - there are no parts outside the outer shape of the camera that could break. It even survived tumbling down my stairs. It is water resistant, an interesting feature for outdoor use. The myu II provides all the important features you expect from a… Read Full Review

A little correction: The lens is a 35mm, not 28mm as stated in this review...

Really small and weatherproof so great for beach. Takes decent photos for snapshot scenarios. My only grumble is that you cant capture a moment very well because the photo is taken upto about 1 second after pressing the button… Read Full Review
