The Olympus Mju: Summer and Winter


The last month or so was spent was spent in New Zealand. Travelling requires decisions about space and weight. Hiking narrows the focus even further. That meant “no” to the Nikons, and “yes” to the pocketable Olympus Mju and the Ricoh GX 200 (the GRD stayed home as it was redundant once the Mju stepped forward). Three boxes of Tri-X and a battery charger completed the packing list. I remain impressed by the capacity of the Mju (read my review here)—auto-focus is a boon for fading eyes, the flash is good for fill-in needs, and its small size makes it a cert for daytrips. Two photos are from New Zealand, two from Boston and the remainder from a wintery New York. They show the utility of the camera which even resists snow. Qualities that make me regret its lengthy exile in the my photo bag.
