The tough model for everyone

Waterproof to 3m, shockproof to 1.5m and freezeproof to -10°C, the durable [mju:] 850 SW takes some beating. Its 8.0 Megapixels ensure detailed photo results and the 2.5"/6.4cm HyperCrystal LCD makes framing and reviewing shots a breeze. Equipped with a 3x optical zoom (equiv. to 38-114mm) users enjoy considerable flexibility in composing their images.

Advanced features such as Face Detection, Shadow Adjustment and BrightCapture Technology provide perfectly exposed and focused shots, plus better results in low light. In addition, Digital Image Stabilisation protects against blur caused by handshake or fast-moving subjects. Macro shooting is also enhanced thanks to an integrated LED macro illuminator.

The [mju:] 850 SW comes in a choice of Starry Silver, Midnight Black or Metal Pink. A huge 38 languages are on board to allow most users across the globe to navigate its intuitive menu in their native tongue. Furthermore, for those wishing to take the photographic experience up to 40m below the water's surface, the PT-041 underwater case is optionally available.

There are not many cameras on the market that are able to perform like this one. If you are an adventurous person, then this is the sort of camera for you. It's tough, durable, and there's no need for water to stop you. It looks like an ordinary camera, no big plastic casing that makes it waterproof, which I personally think is a plus. This time when I accidently drop my camera on the floor, or into the snow when on a glacier in Iceland, I won't have to keep my fingers crossed it still work lol.
