Description:

The Olympus µ[mju:] (US: ∞ Stylus) was a fully automatic 35mm compact camera introduced by Olympus in 1991. Notably evolved by camera designer Maitani Yoshihisafrom his Olympus XA design. It was very small and curvy, with an integrated lens cover. It is switched on by shifting the lens cover to one side. The Stylus was the first model in the hugely successful Olympus mju/Stylus series, selling 5 million on its own.
The original mju/Stylus was generally available in black, but a LIMITED edition model (50,000 examples) with a metallic silver finish was also released. 1992 saw the release of the Olympus µ[mju:] PANORAMA. This utilized tiny magnets to move a mask in front of the film in the middle of the roll, while keeping the body and basic spec unchanged. Some versions of the mju actually say µ[mju:]-1 on the front.
Earlier Mju units were built in an Olympus factory in Japan, while some later examples (mostly 'µ[mju:]-1' marked), according to markings on the bottom, were assembled in China with Japanese-made parts. 

The technological specifications of this camera formed the basis of a retro-styled limited edition "concept" camera called the Ecru. -Read more

A review by  Panagiotis Giannakis 

Olympus always knew how to make compact cameras that you carry with you all the time. Do you remember the OM series? Or maybe the legendary XA ? This one was the next step, the Mju-1 in Europe (Stylus infinity in America), is a nice little compact with sexy sleek lines that can fit into your shirt pocket. It was followed by the Mju-II, an improved version with a 35 f/2.8 lens and a spot meter and then there were numerous version with Zoom lenses and so on..
Olympus got it right straight from the start with this camera. It had everything the amateurs wanted and it was taking very good pictures. There are the usual flash modes but unfortunately there is no way to disable permanently the flash (once you shut the camera, it resets to default - Auto). Good news though: the fill in flash does not pop up in almost every occasion like the Fuji does  -Read more
