BEST POINT & SHOOT?

Olympus mju ii

I have two Epic 2. Maybe I perceived the sound differently back then, but now that I think about it, the operating sound seems just horrible and loud. A well scanned negative will also hold its own quality-wise compared with a digital point-and-shoot, though the whole process will be much slower and more expensive as the film will have to be developed. I suspect that many people have used this camera without realising just how many features it actually does have. To start, it has a fantastic lens. Watch this space, as they say. I have no idea what could be the problem.

Project 02

Olympus mju ii

The build quality of the camera is not the best compared to the Contax Tvs and is plastic and not metal. There is a lot of bang for buck with this camera and it is really simplistic and it is really a true point and shoot. The meter is spot on. The only problem is the price. The drawbacks for me are: The film advance is incredibly loud. The more people chuck me a small amount of cash each month, the more time I can spend building and improving upon it - simple as that! Operating the camera in the field is as simple as it gets, just lock focus, compose, and shoot. These cameras are pretty easy to get a hold of on eBay, at thrift stores or out of an old persons house.

I should really put a roll in and take some more shots! The fixed lens on this camera is much faster than other Olympus point-and-shoots many of which include zoom lenses. Bear in mind this camera uses the battery for virtually every operation including loading film, focusing, advancing the film after each shot, and rewinding the film automatically at the end of each roll. The good news is that most of the parts are plastic so where there is resistance, its relatively easy to break the bits that stand in the way to you getting to lens. It is one of the cameras I was most excited to modify to fit on my digital cameras. I use the Epics if I think I may need the extra qualities they offer If you are interested, examples are posted from both of these on my flickr site in separate albums as well as a number of the zoom models also. A pro photographer who worked for us part time replaced his everyday-carry Minox with an Infinity Stylus because it was quicker on the draw, easier to use, and gave results that were as good or better. Like most other point and shoots that have built-in flash its default mode when turned on is Auto flash which is obnoxious to have to turn that off every time you want to shoot unless you want to gamble and have the flash go off on in someones face on the streets or when you are documention something that you do not want flash to surprise someone.

Currently you have JavaScript disabled. And if it takes me another five years to find a low-priced Epic, this original Stylus will do just fine. That this is a fact of life with the Mju is interesting, again, in light of its widespread proselytization by many point-and-shoot street shooters. I almost never leave the house with out it, since its light around the neck or fits in a coat pocket. So how is it in use? They are also not as rugged as my all-mechanical Rollei 35s.

BEST POINT & SHOOT?

Olympus mju ii

I have used it several times and it has served its purpose of taking good photos. I think Olympus outshined all of its competitors in the fully automatic point and shoot category. My iPhone has more camera features than a mju-ii I think! Then the difference in performance was undeniable. There are many reasons why they could fail, the most obvious one being that one of the circuit boards in the camera ha failed. With your one hand you can open the clam shell of the camera and still have your finger on the shutter ready to fire. They just leave things like this and the Trip 35 lying around, cause the excitement wore off and they have been replaced by newer products, so as the creative one in the family I could take them over from them.

Olympus mju II (Stylus Epic), Small Compact, Light & Easy to Use

Olympus mju ii

If I have a criticism, it is the small indented function buttons on the back of the camera, which are a bit of a nuisance to use. I decided to spend a few weeks with one to see if I could answer that question. Its svelte form slips into a pocket more easily than any other camera in this test. The original has a f3. In its current state, the short answer is no.

The Olympus mju

Olympus mju ii

Sure, you can switch the flash off, but as soon as you close the clamshell cover, which switches the camera off, it forgets. Walking in the park with your lover. Is it as good as the one with the 35mm lens? The cameras which have won numerous awards for design and functionality are switched on by shifting the lens cover aside. The arrival of digital point and shoot cameras, and then a bit later when everyone began carrying mobile phones with a built-in camera, meant that millions of little 35 mm plastic point-and-shoot cameras were cast aside, almost overnight. I attempted to focus on the lock and recomposed — It missed by a little bit … Focusing at a further distance.

My shots were always in focus when they were working properly, unless it was user error. Metal dials, adjustment knobs that click with refined precision into deeply set mechanical detents, ball bearing shutters, a film advance lever or, barring that, at least a mechanical film advance that sounds delightfully mechanical go listen to the salacious audio file included in. I still have my Mju, bought in the days before digital. It can handle situations that would stymie most point-and-shoots, like focusing properly when aimed at two people, where there is a space between the subjects. So if you like to shoot without a flash, as I do, better get used to automatically pressing that button every time you turn on the machine. Bear in mind that I am not a photography technician and am still learning.
