Olympus µ[MJU:] 760
Advantages: Looks good, easy to use
Disadvantages: Poor quality photos at night
I bought this camera in blue about 8 months ago hoping for a simple to use point and shoot camera, however I have been somewhat disappointed.
Whilst during the day the picture quality has been fine, I have struggled to take a decent picture at night. I have played around with all the settings but have still been unable to take a clear photo at night, or even as it begins to get dark. The scene options also appear to make very little difference. There is a fireworks setting but when trying to take a picture of fireworks all you end up with is one big blur. Maybe there is a way, but for the average user who knows little about photography this camera has not provided even semi-decent pictures in anything other than broad daylight.
On the plus side, despite being subject to some fairly rough treatment this camera has been very reliable and the battery life is excellent. Comes with USB cable and Olympus software for uploading pictures to a computer, however it is very easy to do this without having to install OLYMPUS Master which was a big plus. It also has a large LCD viewing screen which is useful for viewing pictures, though when outside in the sun it is impossible to see anything on the screen or what you are taking.
For anybody who just wants a simple point and shoot camera for any situation I would not recommend the Olympus µ[MJU:] 760.
Summary: Basic, easy to use camera, impossible to take a decent picture at night.
