The popular Olympus µ series has once again raised the bar for combining sumptuous design with powerful opto-digital technology. Featuring optical zooms ranging from 5x in the µ-5000, 7x in the µ-7000, to a phenomenal 10x in the µ-9000, this latest generation of the legendary Olympus µ series continues the story of superior optics and ultra-slim bodied chic. Epitomising the Olympus “miniaturised optics, maximised brilliance” philosophy, these state-of-the-art 12 Megapixel cameras each include Dual Image Stabilisation, Shadow Adjustment Technology and Face Detection Technology in their impressive treasure trove of high-tech capabilities.
With its 5x optical zoom (36-180mm*) and 12 Megapixels, the µ-5000 is the perfect choice for flexible, high-performance photography. As with all the new classic µ cameras, this stylish camera has Perfect Shot Preview on board. This enables changes to various settings to be viewed and compared with one another in a multi-frame window on the 6.9cm/2.7” HyperCrystal II LCD before shooting. A further handy function is Perfect Fix: it lets red-eyes and shadowy areas be removed from photos, directly in the camera. The ultra-slim µ 5000 is available in a choice of Atlantic Blue or Midnight Black models.
The slick and stylish µ-9000, µ-7000 and µ-5000 are a dream come true for sophisticated photographers looking to match cutting-edge style with superior substance.
Handling and navigation is easy due to illuminated buttons for low-light conditions. In addition, an all-new Beauty Mode smoothes out imperfections from the final image for a flawless-looking complexion, and the innovative Intelligent Auto Mode automatically identifies five commonly-encountered types of scenes and adjusts settings accordingly. An In-Camera Panorama mode is also included for particularly expansive or creative shots. The three new members of the classic µ series each come with 39 languages on board and are xD-Picture Card and microSD compatible.
