Shooting functions evolved with an expanded range of 6 Magic Filters including 2 new filters and 4 Magic Movies, which apply Magic Filters effects to movie recordings. These functions make usual scenes a quick change into exciting atmosphere filled with fun and pleasurable surprise. Boasting a high-magnification 7X optical zoom lens with wide-angle shooting capability in an ultra-slim body, the Olympus Mju 7050 is the ultra-slim body camera to feature this level of power. The Olympus Mju 7050's impressive zoom capabilities are supported by a 14-megapixel 1/2.33-inch CCD that works together with the high-resolution lens to capture brilliant, high-definition images featuring natural, lifelike colours and impeccable details, accurately reproducing the subject throughout the image area. A built-in "DUAL IS" image stabilization based on high-sensitivity shooting and CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism compensates for image blur due to camera shake by adjusting the direction of the CCD.
Olympus Mju 7050 offers HD video recording and photo surfing
Extended HDTV (1280 x 720 pixels) movie recording is possible thanks to the advanced MPEG-4 AVC / H.264 movie compression format. Movie recording can be manipulated by a dedicated movie REC button. Made possible by the incorporation of a 2 GB memory, photo-surfing allows you to download favorite pictures from your PC back to your camera, search desired pictures according to recording information such as "date", and "scene mode", and view them on the camera. It's just like the camera version of netsurfing. With the provided [ib] software, users can create image collections based on various criteria such as who is in the picture or where it was shot.

The Olympus Mju 7050 features an expanded range of 6 Magic Filters, Pop, Pin Hole, Fisheye and Drawing inherited from the previous model, and newly added Punk and Soft Focus, plus 4 Magic Movies which are the Magic Filters effects applied to movie recordings.
