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.

Here’s this month’s Reader Submissions post! Please share your work here if you’d like to be considered for a feature on Booooooom. The comments allow images to be attached so make sure post an image along with a link to your website.

One of the things that makes Booooooom unique is all the encouraging comments people send back and forth on these monthly submission posts. If you’re going to share your work please take an extra second to leave a nice comment on someone else’s work!

Voting up work is like high-fiving that person and it also helps us see what work you guys like! Remember, even if your work isn’t featured on the main site these posts can send some decent traffic to your portfolio! The link at the bottom will open up this full post, simply scroll down and use the commenting system to submit your work.

 

Submission guidelines:

 1. Please don’t flood the comments with a dozen images, just post 1 image that represents your best work along with 1 link.

2. If you see good work posted by someone upvote it so it appears at the top. This is not just a nice thing to do, it helps me see what work you actually like.

3. You can/should also encourage people who are sharing good work here! Comment on their posts and let them know you like what they’re doing. I really want to foster a community here, and this is a simple way you can connect with other people making work.

4. Keep in mind your post may not show up right away because it has an image attached. It may need to be manually approved first so don’t freak out and post a million times, once is enough.
