Olympus Stylus 750 Digital

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Wednesday 23rd, August 2006

Anyone who wants to get close to the action should take a good look at the Stylus 750 from Olympus. This camera features a new 5x zoom lens, which is great for scrutinising objects that are a bit further away, and a 7.1 million pixel CCD for photos bursting with detail - all squeezed into tiny weatherproof metal bodies. To make the most of its powerful zoom, the Stylus 750 even features Dual Image Stabilization to safeguard against blurring caused by camera shake. The camera is further equipped with 23 special scene modes to make many familiar photo situations easier and they perform particularly well in low light. The Olympus Stylus 750 is available in a choice of colours and will be available from September, priced at around £300.00.

Olympus Stylus 725 SW Digital

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Wednesday 23rd, August 2006

With today’s hectic and active lifestyles, photographers need a camera they can truly rely on when the going gets tough. Luckily, being waterproof to 5m and shockproof to 1.5m, the Stylus-725 SW Digital can pretty much shrug off anything that life throws at it. When Olympus introduced the innovative Stylus 720SW - waterproof to 3m - at the start of 2006, it looked like a tough act to follow. However, the new Olympus Stylus 725 SW is even harder, being waterproof to a greater depth of 5m. The Olympus Stylus 725 SW takes its protection from a durably-constructed and yet great looking metal body. Image quality is equally impressive, due to a 7.1 million pixel CCD, coupled with a sharp 3x optical zoom lens.

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Wednesday 23rd, August 2006

They say that good things come in small packages, and this couldn’t be truer of the Olympus Stylus 1000 Digital. Photos taken using it are packed with 10.0 million pixels worth of detail, and yet the camera itself can be simply slipped into a pocket or handbag. The Olympus Stylus range is well known for cameras that push the very boundaries of technical achievement, without skimping on the style. The Stylus 1000 Digital retains the hallmark weatherproof metal body of its predecessors, bringing it bang up to date with a sophisticated silver finish, beneath which lies a 10.0 million pixel CCD and a 3x zoom lens, that together deliver bitingly-sharp results. The Olympus Stylus 1000 is ideally suited to low light photography, as it can boost its light sensitivity to an amazing 6400 ISO.

With a luxuriously large 7.6 cm LCD screen, sophisti-cated illuminated controls and super-slim design, taking photos using the Olympus Stylus 730 is a real pleasure. The extra-large screen also means that, once the shoot is over, all of your friends can enjoy viewing the shots at the same time. The 7.1 million pixel CCD and precision 3x zoom lens work together to deliver pictures packed with detail - something that can be really appreciated on an LCD screen of this size.
