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.

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

    Oh, man. I still have mine. I haven’t shot a roll of film in eight years, but this little guy is still here. That little camera was damn near perfect.

    possibly my favorite photo of all time. taken with the stylus.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

lifeisadance1 lifeisadance2 lifeisadance3

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
