LetsGoDigtal reviews Olympus mju 700 and concludes that “anyone with an eye for design looking for a digital camera that will let them take high resolution snapshots with ease will be able to get along with the Olympus Mju 700. It’s an attractive looking camera and I’ve got sweet memories of the user friendly operation, but I expect more from Olympus. I expect more innovation from a manufacturer that has been at the forefront of photography for many years. A lot of time and money has been put into Olympus’s digital reflex series, but the compact camera division seems to be lagging behind. The competition has shown that there are many more innovative possibilities for standing out in this large market. However, the Olympus Mju 700 does what it is good at. It is a stylish looking camera, easy to use and gives good picture quality; a fantastic camera for taking snapshots!”
