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:
Dual Image Stabilization combines the benefits of mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization and Digital Image Stabilization to ensure the clearest pictures possible in any situation - whether you or your subject are moving.
Great versatility and durability: All-Weather durability and Bright Capture Technology make this the anytime, anywhere compact digital camera - enabling great photos to be captured in any weather or lighting situation.
LCD Backlight Boost Button combined with 2.5-inch Wide-View LCD improves usability for composing and sharing photos. The Boost Button increases brightness of the LCD - great for previewing and playing back images in sunny situations. The Wide-View enables images to be viewed on the LCD from any angle up to 140 degrees - ideal for showing images to large groups and composing photographs from hard to reach angles.
"The new Stylus 760 digital camera demonstrates Olympus' commitment to style, innovation and quality photography," said Tomoko Matsunaga, product manager, Olympus Imaging America Inc. "It appeals to stylish, sophisticated consumers who are looking for a compact digital camera with advanced technologies, such as Dual Image Stabilization, for superior image quality and an All-Weather metal body for durability and convenience."
Dual Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization technology is the two-in-one anti-blur solution. It enables users to take crisp, clear pictures in virtually any shooting situation - adjusting for camera shake or a moving subject. Olympus' Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization keeps images sharp by adjusting the CCD image sensor to compensate for camera movement, which often occurs in low-light conditions when shutter speeds are slower. Digital Image Stabilization freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds that prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject.
