Olympus Stylus 760
CENTER VALLEY, Pa., January 25, 2007 - Olympus introduces the sleek Stylus 760, a digital camera that expands on the Stylus line's reputation for ergonomic design, high-performance and All-Weather durability with pioneering technologies that enable users to capture sharp, blur-free images in a variety of active shooting situations:
The heart of any digital camera is the image sensor-an amazing device that converts photons, bundles of light energy, into electrons, which are then collected, analyzed, and transformed into a visible image. Unlike all other digital SLRs on the market, the new Sigma SD14 incorporates a 3-layer, 14-megapixel Foveon X3 sensor that is, quite literally, cutting edge. Because this unique sensor captures full color data in all three primary colors at each pixel location, it can resolve finer details in color images than conventional sensors that only capture one color per pixel location. The result: The Sigma SD14 delivers superior real-world performance whenever you shoot high resolution pictures in color-an enormous practical edge you can easily see for yourself in comparison pictures of color test targets as well as in your own colorful digital images.
