Another Mju Zoom for $3, I couldn’t resist it. This one was the deluxe version due to the remote control and quartz date. I put a new battery in the remote and it seemed to work, but I needed to read the instructions to use it efficiently. You can read about this 1995 camera on this website and find technical details here.
I really don’t know what to say that hasn’t already been said. If you want a cheap point and shoot, this one is fine. It is weatherproof, has a nice zoom, a retractable cover, and a viewfinder diopter.
I wandered around with it in my bag and then while going to the cinema I got this film and 2 other developed at a new-to-me lab. This lab was not in a major place and I think the chemicals were old. The negs I got back were all a bit purple. Plus I don’t have ready access to a cd player right now. So I had to scan the negs myself. Welcome to my purple life.
This camera was fine, it was not great. I would not recommend it, even for $3. The lowest aperture available was f5.6 which is really not great, especially for a weatherproof camera that might be used on a dull day. I know the film was not processed well, but it really did not handle the cloudy day well.
Keep or sell: I sold it back to the second hand shop, definitely not worth the weight.

Hate that eBay sellers are ripping people off with these things just because of the mju name and as far as I know none of the mju zooms are worth more than £5.
Pentax Espio range are far better.
I thought the 70 did well, and I quite liked the 140..but this one was a pile of poo.
Actually looking back through my posts, this the first one I didn’t like. Including the one I sent you 😛
The one you sent me wasn’t a zoom it was a mju 1 with panorama. They’re great!

I agree with you totally. And did I really…you were lucky I was reducing luggage 😉
