Olympus Stylus 770 SW
CENTER VALLEY, Pa, January 25, 2007 - Olympus today rolled out the toughest digital camera in the Stylus series: the Stylus 770 SW. Built for active lifestyles, the 7.1-megapixel ultra-compact camera is designed to take great photos in nearly any environment, including in water down to depths of 33 feet (10 meters) and in winter weather as frigid as 18 degrees below freezing (14 degrees Fahrenheit; -10 degrees Celsius). It can also survive falls up to five feet and heavy loads up to 220 pounds of pressure. Within the camera's rugged exterior is an array of innovative technologies to ensure clear, sharp images in the roughest of shooting situations.
The Stylus 770 SW boasts several signature features:
Shockproof, waterproof, freezeproof and crushproof, the Stylus 770 SW's rugged body design is strong enough to sustain life's adventures;
A large, bright 2.5-inch HyperCrystalâ¢ LCD improves shooting and sharing pictures in bright-light and low-light situations; an Digital Image Stabilization boosts ISO sensitivity and shutter speed to capture crisp, clear pictures when you or your subject is moving.
"Olympus pioneered the shockproof and waterproof category in 2006 with the Stylus SW series, and in many ways has changed the face of digital photography," said Michael Barnett, product manager, Olympus Imaging America Inc. "Today, we're unveiling the Stylus 770 SW, which offers extended waterproof capabilities, increased durability and enhanced LCD performance. It's perfect for the great outdoors or a night on the town, and it's truly the anytime, anywhere digital camera."
Designed to Withstand Drops from Five Feet
Built with durable materials and shock-absorption technology that minimizes the impact delivered to the lens and circuitry when dropped, the Stylus 770 SW delivers superior durability in a premium point-and-shoot digital camera.
Offers Increased Waterproof Capabilities
Take great photos down to 33 Feet (10 Meters)
By combining a lightweight, stainless steel exterior with rubber gaskets and O-rings to seal the interior from the elements, Olympus delivers a slim body design that performs as well under water (down to 33 feet/10 meters below the surface) as it does on land. Also, the inclusion of four custom underwater scene modes make the Stylus 770 SW the perfect camera for the pool, snorkeling and scuba diving. For those who want to explore greater depths, the PT-035 underwater housing, designed specifically for the Stylus 770 SW, enables the camera to venture approximately 130 feet (40 meters) beneath the surface.
