The kind man at Olympus gave us this compact digital camera on one condition – that whenever anyone questioned its waterproof and shockproof claims, we were to throw it to the floor or into water.
We’ve since demonstrated the Miu’s rugged attributes to many awestruck onlookers. Two years on, it’s dented and scratched, but refuses to give up
It consistently takes sharp 7.1MP images – even from inside pints of lager (a good pub game) – and is ideal for carrying on rides. With a faster action (for accurate panning) and face recognition, it would be perfect.
