Olympus Mju 820
This autumn, Olympus introduces a camera that boasts both elegance and power. The Olympus Mju 820 is a dream come true with an impressive 5x optical zoom and stylish, weatherproof body in Midnight Black, Starry Silver, Ruby Red or Crystal Blue. Exciting colours and more magnification power are only the beginning: A giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD makes the Olympus Mju 820 camera ideal for framing and reviewing shots with friends. The Olympus Mju 820 also lets you say goodbye to blurry or poorly-exposed faces in photos: The integrated Face Detection Technology scans compositions for faces and then optimally adjusts exposure and focus settings to return the best results.
Olympus 820 - Waterproof metal body
The 8.0 Megapixel resolution of the Olympus Mju 820 ensures not a precious bit of image detail goes missing. With a slim, weatherproof metal body in Midnight Black, Starry Silver, Ruby Red or Crystal Blue, the Olympus Mju 820 is the essential combination of form and function. From its attractive, slim-line exterior to its handy splash resistance - the Olympus Mju 820 camera is perfect for a hike in the rainforest or to simply have with you at all times, since you never know what life may bring. A 5x optical zoom (equivalent to 36-180mm) and 5.6x digital zoom combine to provide magnification power that takes you right to the heart of the action. And with a total of 8.0 Megapixels, every shot gets captured in the finest detail.
Olympus Mju 820 - Face Detection & Shadow Adjustment technology
Several innovations work together to ensure great results. For the most accurate and sharpest depiction of human faces possible, Face Detection Technology has been incorporated which sets optimum exposure and focus values for the faces in compositions. Shadow Adjustment Technology, meanwhile, ensures depictions of shadowy areas in the background stand out with their realism. BrightCapture Technology enhances images further by increasing sensitivity in low-light conditions. Additionally, the integration of the powerful TruePic III image processing engine improves colour and noise performance while also boosting camera speed. Matched with a giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD, framing, shooting and reviewing pictures is both extremely comfortable and fun.
Olympus Mju 820 camera - Smile Shot scene mode
20 scene modes including Portrait, Night Scene, and Sports let the user quickly adjust to a number of different shooting situations. The Smile Shot scene mode can even determine when the subject smiles and automatically releases the shutter just at the right moment. On-board editing functions add extra practicality and fun to the mix: Theres Red-eye Fix which lets users correct this phenomenon right on the LCD; Expression Edit allows for the amusing distortion of faces; and Face Focus gradually blurs shots outward from the face in a starburst-formation.
Olympus Mju 820 digital camera - Memory & Availability
Furthermore, a total of 25 languages on board mean menu navigation is a piece of cake for virtually anyone. And internal memory plus an xD-Picture Card slot make it easy to expand storage space for additional photos at any time. The fun and stylish Olympus Mju 820 will be available from August 2007.
