Olympus mju 9000 - Test Shots - Detail and Lens Performance

By Cliff Smith



Our Score:


User Score:

A range of general test shots are shown over the next two pages. In some cases, the full size image has been reduced for bandwidth purposes, and a crop taken from the original full resolution image has been placed below it to show the overall image quality. Some other pictures may be clicked to view the original full-size image.


Here's the usual detail test shot of the West Window of Exeter Cathedral, for you to compare with other cameras. See below for a full res crop, or click to see the whole picture.


The level of fine detail is very good, but the overal image looks a bit soft.


The lens produces relatively little barrel distortion.


Centre sharpness is excellent.


Corner sharpness is pretty good too, with little chromatic aberration.

Apologies for this not being directly related to the mju 9000, but does TR or anyone know of any compact digital cameras that have an interval timer, whereby the thing can be programmed to take, for example, 10 shots at the rate of one per minute? I'd have thought this would be a simple matter of software programming but have, so far, failed to come across it.

The Ricoh R10 can do time lapse in incriments of five seconds, from five seconds up to three hours. You can download the manual here (http://www.ricoh.com/r_dc/supp... the info is on page 104, "Shooting pictures automatically at set intervals"

All Ricoh cameras have this feature, including the brand new CX1.

@ Billy Rubin & S_p_i_d_e_r. Thank you both for that. Like I mentioned, I'm surprised interval timing is such a rare feature because it would seem to easy to implement. As much as I love my Canon, it's time to switch brands.

Cliff, you talk about the focal range 28-200mm (35mm equiv.) across the entire review while the camera itself states that it has a 10x zoom, 5-50mm (35mm equiv. that should maybe be 28-280mm). Which one is correct?

theimer - You're quite correct, it should be 28-280mm. I've edited the review to correct this error. Thanks for pointing it out.

ripsnorter : Most Nikon P&S can do it as well. The S series, specifically.
