Olympus Mju Digital 600
(Olympus Stylus 600 in the USA)
Review Date: October 27th 2005
The Olympus Mju Digital 600 is a 6 megapixel compact digital camera with a weatherproof body that is resistant to water spray. Standout features on the Olympus Mju 800 include a large 2.5 inch LCD screen (although there is no room for an optical viewfinder), 23 different scene modes for the novice user, and a Super Macro mode that focuses as close as 7cm from your subject. Olympus have also incorporated some completely new ideas. BrightCapture Technology automatically brightens the LCD screen in dark conditions to enable better framing and better image results in low light. A new Image Blur Reduction mode reduces the possibility of image blur created by a moving subject or camera movement. The Red-Eye Fix editing function removes red-eye effects from photos already saved in the Olympus Mju Digital 600ís memory. So does all of this add up to make the Olympus Mju Digital 600 the perfect pocket camera for you? Read my extensive review to find out.
The recommended retail price of the Olympus Mju Digital 600 in the UK is £220, and in the US it is $349.99.
