NYC Summer Streets with the MJU-1

I bought this Olympus MJU-1 a few years ago in a garage sale. I haven't used it that much because I prefer the simpler Olympus XA2. My XA2's batteries went out recently so I put a roll of Fuji Superia 200 in the MJU-1 and took it for a walk. I would use it more often from now on.


  1. Thank you Jim. The MJU-1 has a little bit of shutter lag due to the auto focus. When shooting the girl with the jumping sneakers her leg was way up when I pressed the shutter.

  2. The focus lag is a little disconcerting, though I don't think I've missed many shots because of it. The other thing I need to remind myself of is to lock the focus on the subject if it doesn't happen to be right in the middle of the view. And then there is the issue of the flash being on by default when you open up the camera. All that aside, the mju is still the camera most likely to be in my pocket when I leave the house.
