Olympus 800 - In-depth view|
According to Mark Goldstein: "The Olympus Mju Digital 800 isn't the lightest camera around at 180g without the battery fitted. The Olympus Mju Digital 800 is quite comfortable to hold. Your right thumb naturally rests on the Exposure Mode dial, which thankfully requires quite a positive movement to turn it, so there's no danger of accidentally setting the wrong mode. Unfortunately, Olympus have chosen to bury some commonly used features, such as ISO speed and Exposure Compensation, in the menu system"
Olympus Mju Digital 800 - PhotographyBLOG conclusion
Mark continues: "Noise is the Achilles heel of the Olympus Mju Digital 800. Squeezing 8 Megapixels onto such a small CCD sensor inevitably results in noisier images at lower ISO speeds. Other minor niggles that you should be aware of if you can overlook the noise issue include the lack of an optical viewfinder (because of that large LCD screen), a mushy arrow control pad, red-eye and an ineffective red-eye removal feature, only 15fps in the movie mode and the lack of a USB 2 connection. If you only ever shoot at ISO 64-200, then the Olympus Mju Digital 800 is definitely worth considering…" You want to learn more about this Olympus digital camera?

Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBlog in January 2003. At first the one and only purpose was to let this site function as one of those popular weblogs with Photography as main topic. But as we all know Photography is a pretty big subject to publish about so Mark decided to focus on some hot key points like mentioning all new introductions, reviews, reports from events like PMA and Photokina, sharing some impressive and creative photos and Mark's sole perspective of his feeling about this fascinating world of Digital Imaging. Mark is based in the UK, but his eagle-eye focuses global! Be sure to visit his weblog about Photography, in fact bookmark it, because we believe that Mark is pretty close to become an active and respected website. To us PhotographyBlog is one of the surprises of 2004/2005!
