Olympus Mju 770SW

This camera has a major problem at 3X optical zoom it produces very grainy images. I tried using different ISO settings but no help. With no zoom images look reasonable but as soon as you zoom in they become grainy.

Train driver asks passengers to get out and push

Similar experience

I had similar experience back in Ukraine when going on a trolleybus (electric powered bus). Its pantograph got unwired in a 'neutral zone' in a middle of intersection. At first driver was uncertain about what to do but then another driver from a passing trolleybus recommended to ask passengers to push it a couple of feet. Small effort from 10 people and we were ‘on the road’ again.
