A premium combination of design and features lend the Olympus Mju 830 irresistible qualities. With the luxury of a 5x optical zoom, photographers can get closer to subjects without having to move an inch. Double protection against blur caused by camera shake, which is more likely at high magnifications, is provided by Dual Image Stabilisation - a combination of high ISO setting and a mechanical image stabiliser. Furthermore, a smart, weatherproof, aluminium exterior that is finished in Starry Silver or Midnight Black serves as a stylish defence against all kinds of unexpected weather. This means that the picture-taking doesn’t have to stop when the sunshine does.
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.
Shockproof against falls from 1.5m and waterproof to a water pressure equivalent of 3m, the newest addition to the Mju tough series keeps up with just about any active lifestyle. There’s no need to think twice about taking the Olympus Mju 790SW along on a mountaineering trek or letting the kids take a few pictures at a picnic. Even for shots at the beach or capturing the wonder of marine life while snorkelling, the Olympus Mju 790 SW can take it all. For added fun, it is available in a choice of four expressive colours (starry silver, midnight black, sunset orange or marine blue). This attractively styled camera also incorporates a number of exciting innovations such as Face Detection Technology.
Olympus introduces the Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm 1:4.0-5.6. Designed for the specific demands of digital photography, this telephoto lens delivers 4.28x zoom power - up to a phenomenal focal length equivalent of 300mm (600mm on a 35mm camera system). Despite such high-performance attributes, this ultra-compact model only weighs in at around half as much as its competition. This makes it the ideal travel lens to accompany any Four Thirds Standard DSLR. With magnification muscle extending to 300mm (600mm in 35mm equivalent terms), the Zuiko Digital ED 70-300mm 1:4.0-5.6 is remarkably powerful yet remains astoundingly portable: The lens measures a mere 127mm and weighs just 620g.
