The EV compensation controller's rather potty too. It shows you thumbnails of 'corrected' images to choose from, rather than offering a simple slider. It's hard to tell one from another, and takes too long to use.
It's a pity there are no more advanced manual modes, too. The average superzoom has them, so why not a superzoom compact?
The Olympus mju 9000's a fairly smart little camera. It beats the latest Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ6 and DMC-TZ7 with 12 megapixels to their 10, but they've got a 12x zoom instead. While the 9000 has an attractive finish, the TZ6 and TZ7 are ever-so-slightly neater and more elegant, although you may disagree.
