Olympus Mju Digital 800Today Olympus have announced the new 8 megapixel weatherproof Olympus Mju Digital 800 – it features a 2.5″ screen, and a 3x optical zoom lens. The camera will be released in July with an expected retail price of £350.

“Olympus is set to redefine low-light photography with the launch of their latest model, the µ [mju:] DIGITAL 800. Olympus’ new Bright Capture technology will enable photographers to achieve excellent results in dark situations, and provide trouble free night time and indoor photography in conditions that were previously unheard of.”

More details at Olympus. You can read my review of the 5 megapixel Olympus Mju Digital 500 to find out what the earlier 5 megapixel version is capable of.

Update: I’ve just noticed in the specifications the ability of the camera to use ISO settings up to ISO1600: “ISO 64, 100, 200, 400 (800 and 1600 with Bright Capture Technology).” although on the front page, it states “** Image quality equivalent to 3.0 million pixels when using Bright Capture functions”
