Walter, London

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Light weight and easy to use for a point and shhot person such as myself.
Bad points:
To be honest, I expected a bit more out of the zoom and picture clarity. It's good but not great for the amount of megapix and optical zoom. I expected more, but for the price, I can't complain.

The popular Olympus µ series has once again raised the bar for combining sumptuous design with powerful opto-digital technology. Featuring optical zooms ranging from 5x in the µ-5000, 7x in the µ-7000, to a phenomenal 10x in the µ-9000, this latest generation of the legendary Olympus µ series continues the story of superior optics and ultra-slim bodied chic. Epitomising the Olympus “miniaturised optics, maximised brilliance” philosophy, these state-of-the-art 12 Megapixel cameras each include Dual Image Stabilisation, Shadow Adjustment Technology and Face Detection Technology in their impressive treasure trove of high-tech capabilities.

Handling and navigation is easy due to illuminated buttons for low-light conditions. In addition, an all-new Beauty Mode smoothes out imperfections from the final image for a flawless-looking complexion, and the innovative Intelligent Auto Mode automatically identifies five commonly-encountered types of scenes and adjusts settings accordingly. An In-Camera Panorama mode is also included for particularly expansive or creative shots. The three new members of the classic µ series each come with 39 languages on board and are xD-Picture Card and microSD compatible.

The 12 Megapixel µ-7000 incorporates a versatile 7x optical zoom (37-260mm*) and a big 7.6cm/3.0” HyperCrystal II LCD to facilitate ultra-convenient framing and viewing. This elegant model also features a clever Smile Shot function which ensures that those being photographed are at their smiling best – because the camera doesn’t trip the shutter until the pearly whites have been flashed. The µ-7000 comes in three attractive colours: Starry Silver, Midnight Black and Ocean Blue.
Equivalent to a 35mm camera
In 3 Megapixel mode
