Stylus Epic

I recently found a beautiful Stylus Epic (aka Mju-1) that looks like it was barely used. Reeeally excited to put some rolls through it!

  • That’s Olympus Mju-1. Mju-2 looks like this: http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3245/2311875254_6762585ed2_z.jpg

    • yes you are fast – you are correct, the “I” is visible in the photo, it was a typo – i was going to explain that there are two models and that i have the older style but i decided to leave it out!

      • In any case, the Olympus Mju series is great. I’ve recently bought Mju-2 and i’m really pleased.

      • yea i really like smaller point and shoots because then ill actually carry them with me, i have been shooting with my contax t3 the most but its been at a repair shop for over a month

  • tina

    I own this one.. but barely ever used it. What s so special about this model?

  • I have a Mju 2 and my sister had the Mju 1 from back in the day. The Mju takes excellent pictures! Enjoy yours! I’m going to dig mine out and put it back into action!

  • I just got a old canon point and shoot cam called the autoboy tele. I can’t wait to take some shots with it!

    • never heard of it, ill look it up!

  • Hey!!!

    You can chek the first results at my web page, here the link of this camera’s photos:

  • I’ve had 3 of them, they are wicked, and sharp. Sometimes the flash can be a bit powerful, I put a few pieces of scotch tape over it…..

  • g

    i own one too, but i’m just using it for snapshots. and jes, the flash is sometimes too strong. but as a really compact camera with flash (for partys or sth) this baby’s perfect.

  • Yes!
    Is a wonderful camera, I bought it for € 3 in a street market.

Photo of Namib-Naukluft National Park in Namibia Looks Like a Painting

This is not a painting! The image above is a photo by Frank Krahmer (see the image larger). I saw this pop up on Reddit and had to investigate.

The image is from Namib-Naukluft National Park which is part of the Namib Desert (considered the world’s oldest desert according to Wikipedia). I found a similar image on National Geographic which gives you a sense of the scale of the dunes and camel thorn trees. The image below was shot by Frans Lanting.

Book Giveaway: Chromaphilia by Stella Paul

Phaidon is releasing a new book all about colour and art. Written by author and art historian Stella Paul, Chromaphilia invites readers to consider the many ways that colour has been theorized and utilized to express meaning and emotion throughout different time-periods and cultures.

Each chapter of the book covers a specific colour (Red, Blue, Purple, Gold, Yellow, Green, White, Grey and Black), and offers insight, artwork and anecdotes you probably didn’t know. Like how Yves Klein’s obsession with a particular shade of blue led him to develop his own customized (and patented) paint. Or how many crushed bugs it used to take to make the coveted red dye used for royal garments. (The answer is 70,000!)

Check out more images from Chromaphilia below or grab yourself a copy when it’s released on March 13th. We also have one to give away! To snag the book, simply post a link to any Booooooom article in the comment section below and write 1 sentence about the artist’s use of colour.

The winner will be selected in two weeks!
