The Olympus Mju 1060 becomes available September 2008 for an approximate value of £259.99.

Olympus Mju 1060 Digital Camera
With its 7x optical zoom (37-260mm) the Olympus Mju 1060 camera gets you closer to your subjects, expanding photographic possibilities - no matter if you’re enjoying an outdoor party with friends or exploring a foreign city. An attractively-designed metal exterior, available in Starry Silver, Midnight Black or Cyan Green, cries out elegance and makes it fun and easy to slip it in or out of any handbag or pocket. When it comes to framing and reviewing shots, an extra-large 3.0 inch HyperCrystal LCD guarantees grand depictions. And Dual Image Stabilization ensures shots always come out sharp - even at high magnifications. Thanks to ample ISO settings, even shots in dimmer environments such as a romantic moonlight dinner are possible. And for extreme-action situations, this model provides an impressive 9fps of sequential shooting power.
