Olympus AF-10 Super

A more rounded (literally; no sharp corners) design than the AF1, you may have been fooled into thinking Olympus was on a journey back towards pebble-like XA territory with the AF-10; but no, Olympus compact design was due to go completely tits-up with the Mju II.

A step up from the AF1 is a flash control switch (which resets to auto when you close the clamshell). A step down is the speed of the lens; 3.5 compared to the AF1’s 2.8.

So, it is solid, has a nice feel to it and takes good pics. Not quite the character that that AF1 is though, and not as good a camera as the Mju II.

My daughter uses this camera – she took the pic at the top of the page.
