(Also known as the Olympus Stylus 410)

(out of 5 stars)
The µ[mju:] 410 Digital is as easy-to-use, good looking and delivers similar image quality as its predecessor the µ[mju:] 400 Digital. It gets 1/2 star more because of the improvements that Olympus have made, but it doesn't quite earn the maximum rating simply because it still doesn't offer enough photographic control. The µ[mju:] 410 Digital is very much a point and shoot kind of camera - you can't choose the aperture or shutter speed, you can't manually set the ISO speed and you can't select how much sharpening or saturation you want to apply to your images. Instead the camera chooses the most appropriate settings for you. This will be ideal for people who just want to turn the camera on, press the shutter button and get a decent picture. The µ[mju:] 410 Digital certainly fulfills this requirement, and I think it would be perfect as a small, portable, hard-wearing camera that you could carry round with you at all times.
