Olympus FE-100 digital camera introduction : There's no more need to compromise good image quality when looking for an affordable and easy-to-use compact digital camera. With 4.0 million pixels, the Olympus FE-100 from Olympus delivers excellent results and features a 2.8x optical zoom for added versatility. Operation is a breeze, even for beginners, thanks to the controls being conveniently positioned and buttons having just a single dedicated function for unrivalled ease. Matched with an ergonomically-designed, lightweight body, the Olympus FE100 is just the shot for everyday photo fun, wherever you may go. With their high-definition shooting capabilities, the 4.0 million pixel FE-100 ensures that every detail is faithfully captured and reproduced, even on large-format print-outs. A 2.8x zoom lens provides flexibility to bring far away subjects closer. Together with the 4x digital zoom, total magnification is even extended to more than 11x. Meanwhile, on the other end of the spectrum, the Olympus FE 100 can capture objects extremely close up, the Super Macro mode allows photography from merely 2cm.

Olympus FE 100 - Easy to control : Camera control is straightforward and fun. Utilising a 'one button, one function' design principle, shooting, playback and erase functions are at the touch of a single button. Moreover, the help function in the menu even describes each of the four scene modes, including Portrait and Night Scene, directly on the LCD.
Olympus FE100 - Video clips and Availability : Video sequences, limited in length only by the available memory, can also be captured. And due to PictBridge support, connection to compatible printers, such as the Olympus P-11 photo printer which prints in just 33 seconds, is possible without the need for a PC. Fitted with a multi-mode built-in flash, the very attractively priced Olympus FE-100 will be available from autumn 2005.
