MJU-SE over new Olympus digital at Jessops - Jessops are hosting a special event to celebrate the launch of the Olympus Mju 300
Jessops is offering photographers an early opportunity to get their hands on an eagerly awaited new digital camera.
Europes leading photographic retailer is hosting a special event to celebrate the launch of the Olympus Mju 300. The stylish new digital camera is based on the hugely popular Mju series of film cameras, and is the first weather-proof digital model to come in an all-metal body.
The special event will take place at Jessops flagship World Camera Centre at 63-69 New Oxford Street on Thursday 20th, Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd March (11am 3pm).
Visitors to the event can try the exciting new model for themselves and find out more information from Jessops staff, who will be on hand to demonstrate the camera. They can also enjoy free street entertainment on Thursday and Friday, while younger visitors can take away an Olympus balloon.
Further details on the event are available by visiting the store, or contacting staff on 020 7240 6077.
The three-megapixel Olympus Mju 300 Digital employs the new xD-Picture Card format, and offers a 3x optical zoom lens, and a 1.5 LCD screen. The weather-proof body means the camera can still be used whatever the conditions may be.
A range of functions including automatic focusing, Digital ESP (Electro Selective Pattern) light metering, and a choice of five scene programs, ensure that even the digital beginner can get great results.
The camera also features macro and panorama modes, 2 in 1 shooting, the recording of short movie sequences, a built-in flash with red-eye reduction, and a choice of full auto white balance and four pre-set white balance modes.
It also supports the EXIF 2.2 and Print Image Matching II (P.I.M. II) standards, enabling compatible printers to produce optimised image printouts using data saved by the camera.
The Olympus Mju 300 will be available in all Jessops stores from mid-March.
