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

    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!!!
    I just bought the same a few days ago!!
    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.

Vancouver-Based OURO Collective Present “Tangent”

Last week we shot some rehearsal footage of our friends, Vancouver-based dance collective OURO, as they prepared for their first full-length show, “Tangent”. The group has spent the past year exploring movements from each member’s diverse dance background to create a story. Their unique voice is a combination of street and contemporary dance twisted into a language all its own.

For this show they’ve also collaborated with Vancouver artist Kutcorners to create original music inspired by their movements. You can listen to Tangent on iTunes and it’ll be released on Spotify shortly!

We are proud to be a media partner for OURO’s two performances this week at Orpheum’s Annex theatre (May 25th/26th). If you live in Vancouver come check it out! Their work is fun, accessible and inspiring, regardless of your knowledge of dance. There are only two performances and tickets are going fast (previous shows on Granville Island sold out completely).

Tickets: Get your tickets HERE.
