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!

      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.

    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…..

    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.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
