The Olympus Mju-III 150 35mm compact camera is the latest addition to the best-selling Mju camera range. The 4x zoom lens, weatherproof Mju-III 150 comes with a free remote control and is ideal for both the seasoned photographer and novice. It also has an innovative, specially developed 11-point multi-wide passive auto focus sensor, allowing it to recognise the main subject - even if off-centre, to secure clear and vivid pictures every time.

Though merely 225g in weight (without battery) and 117mm (W) x 61mm (H) x 43mm (D), the Mju-III 150 still contains a 37.5 – 150mm 4x zoom lens. Its magnification power lets you get that little bit closer and is especially useful when out sightseeing in the city or rambling in the country. Featuring an ED (extra-low dispersion) lens element, usually only found in SLR interchangeable lenses and other high-end cameras, the Mju-III 150 produces sharp and high quality photos.

As you would expect, the Olympus Mju-III 150 maintains a distinctive style whilst incorporating advanced technology. The Mju-III 150 also has an automatic 3-Way AE light metering system, designed to ensure optimal exposure. The outcome boasts bright and colourful photos every time. In addition, it features a camera-shake indicator which minimises the risk of blurry hand-held shots.

The Mju-III 150 is the latest camera in the evolution of the third generation Mju series. In keeping with its popular Mju-III sister models (the Mju-III 120 and Mju-III 100).
