Olympus Stylus 300 (mju 300 Digital) review
I received the camera for christmas 2003 and have taken about 200+ pictures. Indoors, outdoors, day, night, and macro. By New Year's day I had mastered all of the controls and creative options. The camera is solid and weatherproof. It takes excellent pictures for this type of camera. Remember this camera is a point-and-shoot with some creative control options. It is not like an SLR that allows you complete control over shutter and aperature.
I love the rechargeable lithium battery (included with charger). It is the environmentally friendly choice because it is less toxic and lasts much longer than NiCad or NiMH. Battery life between charging is great! When comparing cost with other makes, don't forget to add the cost of a charger and batteries. Most all but Sony cameras have chargers as extras.
The only problem, and this is an issue with all digital cameras I have seen, is that it does not double as a web cam. Seems like that would be a fairly easy option to create.
