12-megapixel compact Digital Camera
Olympus has announced the new Mju 7010, claiming an “incredibly slim and stylish metal design” for the new mid-range compact.
The vital stats for the new compact are a 12-megapixel sensor, a 7x optical zoom (28-196mm)and a 2.7-inch HyperCrystal II sunlight-viewable LCD display.
Offering a “clever” AF tracking function, Olympus claims sharp images even if the subject is moving. There’s an intelligent i-Auto option that auto-adjusts to five common scene modes, dual image stabilisation and VGA at 30fps movie recording with sound.
On the novelty side there’s “Magic Filters” for special effects, such as “Pop Art”, “Pin Hole”, “Fish Eye” and “Sketch”. In addition, the 7010 offers a in-camera “Panorama” setting for landscapes and a wide zoom function for group shots and close-ups.
xD-Picture card and microSD card compatible, the camera will come complete with software and be available in titanium grey, candy pink and starry silver from August

“I’d buy a Canon G10 and use it for landscapes, travel, nature and the weird stuff I shoot instead of dragging along an SLR. Even if I was carrying an SLR, I’d rather grab a G10 than change lenses on an SLR. The G10 is that good.”
