Excellent price for a 12mp camera. The cheapest i have seen by far. 2% Quidco as well.
£233 on Amazon.
£209 on Pixmania.
The camera is over £100 less than the 12mp Canon 960IS 12mp.
Still a good price even though the pics might not be qiute as good as the Canon.

For the finest detail, accept nothing less than the stunning 12 Megapixel Olympus Stylus 1200. Ultra-sharp prints in poster-size and beyond are a reality with this weatherproof* model. Innovations such as Face Detection Technology ensure your pictures impress with their realism, while a giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD makes framing and reviewing shots with friends more enjoyable.

Maximum detail from 12 Megapixel resolution
Excellent preview also in dim and bright light thanks to 6.9cm/2.7"" HyperCrystal LCD and BrightCapture Technology
Perfectly focused and exposed faces even in tricky situations thanks to Face Detection Technology. In combination with Shadow Adjustment Technology also other main parts of the picture are correctly exposed
Best companion in rain and shine with weatherproof **metal body
3x optical zoom (equivalent to 35-105mm*) to capture great scenes through to stunning portraits
High ISO setting (up to ISO 6400) for less blur
Better low light shooting thanks to BrightCapture Technology
20 scene modes (e.g. Smile Shot, Sport and Indoor) ensure the camera has the right settings for different situations
Liven up your memories with movie recording with sound (up to VGA resolution at 30fps)
TruePic III image processor for faster image handling and higher image quality
With the Stylus 1200 you will discover a whole new sense of freedom. A huge 12 Megapixels means you capture more detail than ever before and the weatherproof** metal body offers ample protection so that shooting can continue even when braving the elements. Furthermore, at 6.9cm, the HyperCrystal LCD boasts dimensions that make sharing results a pleasure.
Images with shadowy sections and blurry, badly-exposed faces are a thing of the past. The 3x optical zoom Stylus 1200 incorporates a range of advanced technologies including Shadow Adjustment Technology and Face Detection Technology to make perfect picture taking as effortless as possible.

Multiple scene modes ensure adapting to diverse shooting situations is both quick and trouble-free. The clever Smile Shot scene mode can even detect when your subject smiles and then automatically releases the shutter at precisely the right moment to guarantee the happiest of all photographic experiences.

thats a great price, anyone know if i can get the mju 1010 that cheap
#3
you can have all the megapixels in the world but if the camera takes a **** photo it takes a **** photo. Don't get caught up in the numbers people :thumbsup:

Great price and hot - but pretty sure it only uses more expensive XD memory cards and with this resolution it could fill them pretty fast.

12 megapixel is complete overkill for a compact. Heck, it's pushing it for the much larger sensors found in APS-C class digital SLRs. The pictures from this will look worse than any reasonable 6MP compact. There's a ridiculous megapixel race going on between the manufacturers (fuelled mostly by marketers and easily-led consumers). Don't fall for it. You're going to need bigger memory cards, more hard drive space and your pictures will actually end up looking worse despite all those extra pixels.

Rant over, the price of this camera does seem reasonable, but I'd still avoid as the digital mju series has never produced very good quality photos. You're much better off with a Canon (Powershot or Ixus) or one of the older models of the Fuji F-series.

I agree.

Do you not recommend the mju series then as i was on the verge of going for the 1010. I have looked at others and like the Ixu series and they are half price at the moment in amazon but none of them offer a good optical zoom and i wanted one with more than 4x

I have had a Mju 400 and now a Mju 800 and both were totally reliable and took excellent clear pictures.

I've had Mju series of cameras for the last 6 years and been very happy... until I i got some pictures back from from a friend on a group holiday. Her pictures with her Cannon (cant remember exact model but it was quite newish and about 6 or 8mb) put my mju 800 to shame. The colours and cripsness were stunning. I am now converted to Canon as a result. The shutter opening on mine got squashed so i need a new one and however tempted i am to get this (price is v good) i think i will take Pabs advice and spend a little more on a Canon with less mp.

I have been told that the mg wont make a difference to the picture itself unless you are making them bigger, is that right. For me i mostly use the pictures to view on the computer and tv so they are blown up bigger. I went to a shop today to view the mju 1010 and the canon ixus 960. I found the ixus very bulky in comparison and less optical zoom so i am more inclined to go for the mju.

MP count only dictates the maximum size you can print a photo. More important features of a camera are: Lens quality; sensor type; and the processor. Obviously ease of use is a big factor for consumers too.
For all these reasons that's why I would prefer to buy a Canon, in every aspect the 960 IS is a far superior camera.

Miffy121:
If you are after a higher zoom camera, you will have to plump for a slightly larger camera. As a rule, to maintain the optical quality of a lens, as the zoom range increases, so too does it's size. Along with megapixels, this is another area where manufacturers are pretty much duping the consumer. To get a 7x zoom lens into a camera the size of the 1010, the optical quality will have to have been jeopardised to some degree. Look into the Canon SX100 IS (10x zoom, with proper optical image stabilisation, about £150) or the 720 IS (6x zoom, proper optical image stabilisation, about £130)

thankyou all advise is much appreciated as i have been in quite a few shops now that just want to sell me the first camera i look at despite whether or not it has what i keep asking them for. The last shop was a complete joke and had to look it up on the internet everytime i asked them a question like what is the difference between a canon 950 and 960 ixus. I guess i will have to compramise somewhere as i did go to look at the canon after i read on a thread about it but the 960 was a lot bulkier so like i say, i will have to think which is more important.
