Olympus has announced four new digital cameras in their weatherproof Stylus line. The Olympus Stylus 730, Stylus 740, Stylus 750, and Stylus 1000 all feature the good looks and weatherproof (water resistant) that the Stylus line is known for. However, a new 5x optical zoom lens system and CCD-shift image stabilization have found their way into the line.
The Olympus SP-510 UZ (ultra zoom) is one of nine new cameras announced by Olympus today. The SP-510 is an upgrade from the SP-500. The new camera features 7 megapixels, a 10x optical zoom, and a 2.5 inch LCD. Look for the Olympus SP-510 UZ in September for an estimated street price of $329.
Olympus has announced four new cameras in their "Fun and Easy" (FE) line of entry level, affordable digital cameras. The FE-170, FE-180, FE-190, and FE-200 are designed for the price-conscious or gift buyer who is looking for an easy to use camera. Newly redesigned, the four new cameras range between $149 and $249.
The Olympus Stylus 720 SW is built like a tank with space-age water/dust seals (it's waterproof to 10 feet) and ultra sturdy (it's shockproof in a 5 foot drop) exterior/interior construction. The newest member of the Stylus tribe also features 7 megapixel resolution, a 2.5 inch LCD screen, 28 shooting modes, and a 3X (38mm-114mm - 35mm equivalent) zoom.
We're getting rolling on our review of the Olympus Stylus 710 and wanted to give you our initial impressions of the camera. Announced at the end of January, the Stylus 710 features a 7.1 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, 2.5 inch LCD, and the now familiar weatherproof features of the Stylus line.
Panasonic and Olympus announced the results of their collaboration this morning at a press conference before the PMA show floor opened. They've been working, since January 13, 2005, to jointly develop "underlying components and key components". The two hard results of this collaboration are the Olympus E-330 and the brand new Panasonic Lumix DMC-L1.
In a very exciting development, Olympus has announced the Evolt E-330, the world's first interchangeable lens digital SLR with a live display on the LCD. In current digital SLR cameras, a mirror, blocking the image sensor, is used to provide the optical viewfinder with the shot. Once the shutter is released, the mirror swings out of the way so the sensor can capture the image. Olympus has managed to be the first to market with a product that overcomes the physical and technical hurdles of providing an optical viewfinder and live view LCD.
The Olympus SP-320 is the latest camera in Olympus' higher-end "SP" point and shoot line. The 7.1 megapixel camera has several manual modes to provide varying degrees of manual control for the photographer who wants to start experimenting around with settings. The camera, with a 3x optical lens and 2.5 inch LCD, also have several accessories to provide even more options to the user. The SP-320 will be available in March 2006 at an estimated street price of $299.99.
Adding to their entry level, easy to use, "FE" line, Olympus has announced the FE-115, FE-130, FE-140, which will be available in March. Designed for a beginning digital camera owner, the new FE cameras provide simple modes and on-camera help and tutorials to help you learn how to take great pictures. The FE-130 will have an estimated street price of $179.99 and the FE-140 will be available for an estimated $229.99. A $149 model, the Olympus FE-115 will also be available sometime in the spring of 2006.
The Sony Cybershot DSC-H1 is a perfect example of consumer driven product evolution. The H1's 5.1 megapixel resolution, 2.5 inch LCD screen, and Super Steady Shot (image stabilized) 12X optical zoom provide photographers with an incredible increase in performance, flexibility, and creative potential when compared to the Olympus C3000 -- and the H1 costs about a hundred bucks less than consumers shelled out for the C3000 in 2001! Is the H1 the best choice for you?
