The Olympus Stylus Epic (also known as the Mju-II) is my “point and shoot” camera of choice that I never leave home without!

Photographer Jim Tardio summed it up best:

Most serious photographers like to carry a small pocket camera with them at all times. For those of us raised on 35mm film, the Olympus Stylus Epic (called the Mju-II outside the USA) is our camera of choice. For those of you who don't know what this camera is, it is an inexpensive point & shoot. It just happens to have a sharp-as-a-tack 35/2.8 lens permanently attached, a provision for spot metering (which I never use), and it fits in your pocket without leaving a bulge.

and cross-processed the film in C-41 chemistry
giving the image its unusual color cast.


The Stylus Epic has a great “night flash” feature that keeps the shutter open after the flash fires, which makes for some unusual night shots.

The perfect camera to always have in your pocket! The Stylus Epic came in handy to document The Impossible Project press conference (above) this past March in NYC.

Perfect as a “behind-the-scenes” camera during
a photo shoot since the internal flash can be turned off.
During my “Girls and Corpses” magazine shoot above, this “Crossed Processed” Stylus Epic shot
was better than my 120 shot of the same subject.
