Olympus Mju II point and shoot with Olympus 35mm f2.8 lens.
The Olympus Mju II is probably one of most CULT film camera of them all and it certainly doesn't need much introduction to all the camera nerds out there ;-)
But for all the others and maybe you that is reading this, looking for a new film camera, I will try and explain why this camera has such a big following.
One of the main reasons this camera is liked so much is because of its size. It is very small. It is in fact so small that it will fit with ease inside your jeans or coat pocket. Have I also mentioned how light it is? Well it is very light, actually lighter than your iPhone which makes it the perfect to take with your everyday as you will most likely forget that you are carrying it you.
But that's not only it. On top of being super portable it's also water-resistant. That means you won't have to be scared to take it out and shoot in the rain or next to the pool/on the beach during summer.
These are very impressive things for such a small point and shoot but what truly makes the Mju II exceptional is his lens. It packs a incredibly sharp and punchy Olympus 35mm (not too wide and not too narrow) 4 elements lens that opens up all the way up to f2.8 which means you'll be able to take beautiful portraits with a nice blur and won't have to be scared to shoot flash-less when the light conditions get darker.
The Mju II also has a incredibly fast multi-beam autofocus system that can focus to an impressively small distance of only 0.35m. The light-meter is also amazing, -some say it has the best light meter in any point and shoot cameras- wherever you point your lens the Mju II seems to get it right. And, if in doubt, you can always use the spot metering function (by pressing both the flash and self-timer buttons at the same time)
This camera is perfect for someone that wants a really great point-and-shoot to carry everywhere, everyday, and who doesn’t want to think about anything except pressing the shutter release button and getting beautiful, aesthetic film pictures.
