Olympus has announced the Olympus Stylus 800. This sleek camera comes in a glossy dark blue or silver weatherproof body. This camera can capture 8 megapixel images, includes a 3x optical zoom with 5x digital zoom (for a total of 15x zoom). Olympus has included some other great features, including a 2.5 inch HyperCrystal LCD, Bright Capture Technology for better low-light image capture and viewing, and built in help guide as well as the ability to shoot in 24 different modes. The camera will be available in July 2005.
During daytime, the HyperCrystal LCD remains bright and clear, even in direct sunlight, due to an additional layer in the screen that reflects light away from any external light source. The screen is also viewable at a 160-degree angle. The Bright Capture Technology allows easier framing of low light scenes since the LCD preview remains bright enough to see the subject. The Bright Capture Technology also minimizes blur as the increased sensitivity can allow faster shutter speeds.
