Olympus mju cameras get a style upgrade (and I want one!)

When I saw that Olympus mju cameras now come with a choice of colorful skins, my heart started beating a little faster. You see, not only do I have an Olympus mju camera, but I'm frustrated by its limited (3x optical) zooming capabilities and will be looking to upgrade soon!

I'll have to be quick if I want one of these little beauties, though - the mju µ 1020 with three specially-designed skins is limited edition: only 5000 are available. Not only does it look good, it sounds like a darn good camera too, with a 2.7 inch LCD screen, 10.1 mega pixels, 7x optical zoom, 23 scene modes and the ability to shoot underwater. The bad news is they don't seem to be available in the US yet...

The choice of skin designs made me think, though: camera skins is a bit of an untapped market - eye-catching as my bright orange camera is, I'd definitely be up for updating its look, and I don't think I'm the only one. Designers seem to be missing a trick here, but perhaps this camera will inspire them. Maybe I should buy one, y'know, to help spread the word...
