Olympus Stylus 1040 (mju 1040) review

The great thing about this camera is that's ultra small, easy to use and has a lot to
offer on full automatic: smile detection, face detection, shake reduction, intelligent
auto etc.The kind of camera you need if you're not able to bring big gear. Also, the
lense doesn't come out, and it functions almost silently. Good for stree
photography. The design is attractive. However, for an Olympus, I had expected
better image quality. Ok as an additional camera, although the small size and
discrete and nice design are costly here.
Also, the camera is slow: long delay between clicking and making the photo. People
or cars in your picture are prone to be blurred because of this. But great for
snapshots. one of the smallest compacts available light. with good daylight, the
images are ok, inside or in low light the quality decreases rapidly.
