What camera is like a Stylus Epic / mju ii, but with manual iso/DX override

by Gavin Campbell   Last Updated October 18, 2019 20:18 PM - source

Trying to think of a camera with the following benefits of the mju ii:

  • Small size
  • Autofocus
  • On-board flash
  • "Legendary" IQ

but with a way to set ISO, or failing that, a couple of stops of exposure compensation.

Context:

  • My 10-year-old is using this camera
  • Lomo Purple film with no DX coding. Also Chromogenic B/W at non-box speed.
  • ISO100 is not really up to the task of late October in the UK (Sunny f/5.6?)

I am aware of solutions involving aluminium foil and electrical tape, but these are not really parent-friendly, in the sense that the parent has to remember to do it every time.

So, I'd really like to solve this with a new camera, and I think I'd be prepared to sacrifice some "Legendary" IQ in order to do it.

Any suggestions?
