Stylin' 8MP Compact Camera
Somehow they figured out a way to pack 8 megapixels, a 2.5-inch LCD, 19 Scene modes, manual exposure and more into the compact, all-weather, curvy body of the Olympus Stylus 800 camera. Bright Capture Technology and a Hyper Crystal LCD screen allow you to clearly see, compose and shoot in low-light conditions. The Olympus TruePic TURBO processor delivers a fast startup time of less than a second and a Super Macro Mode allows you to shoot subjects as close as 1.2 inches away. Estimated Street Price: $449.
