Olympus add C-725, C-765 and C-770 digital cameras to their rangeThe new Olympus C-725 Ultra Zoom has a wealth of photo features and a price to tempt even the most cost-conscious of people. This 3 million pixel camera boasts an 8x zoom, plus QuickTime movie capability, allowing you to do much more than take regular party and holiday snaps.

The C-725 Ultra Zoom is compact, lightweight and very easy to use. With Portrait, Sport and Night Scene programs you can quickly switch between the settings to suit the subject or situation. These features, plus a host of precision metering systems and the 3 million pixel resolution, ensure the results stand out with their sharpness and bright, lifelike colours - even when printed in A4 format. And whatever the zoom power or distance, the electronic viewfinder always shows the exact scene to be captured for totally accurate framing.

In addition, a QuickTime movie recording function allows you to capture short video sequences of your most memorable moments. The photos and movies can then be saved on the 16MB xD-Picture Card, and later effortlessly transferred to a computer using a USB (AutoConnect) cable.

The World's Smallest 10x Zoom Camera - The Olympus C-765 Ultra Zoom
Olympus add C-725, C-765 and C-770 digital cameras to their rangeDesigned for sporting events, travel, nature hikes or any occasion where a more detailed view is necessary, the new C-765 Ultra Zoom model, is the smallest digital camera in the world featuring an optical 10x zoom. Weighing a mere 280g, the new Olympus Ultra Zoom is more than just a digital camera it has a Movie Mode, enabling you to capture video with sound as well.

The camera is light-weight, easy-to-handle and perfect for capturing shots from a distance. However this 4.0 million pixel model is equally practical for shooting subjects in extreme close-up, as the Super Macro mode lets you shoot from just 3cm away.

Outstanding results are guaranteed through the first class optical system and optimised image processor, TruePic Turbo, which boosts both image quality and image processing capabilities even further.

The very bright (f2.8 - 3.7) optical system of the C-765 Ultra Zoom comprises eleven elements arranged in seven groups and includes two aspherical lenses to reduce distortion as well as an ED element. This is normally only found in pro-level SLR cameras and significantly helps reduce chromatic aberration.

The new C-765 Ultra Zoom model is versatile enough to match every photographer's demands. In auto mode, it offers point-and-shoot simplicity for flawless picture taking. For those times when creativity is desired, the aperture priority, shutter priority or full manual settings allow greater control.

The optimised electronic viewfinder - unlike many optical viewfinders - enables precise framing of the shot. Also you don't have to take your eye from the subject when shooting as all activated settings are displayed in the electronic viewfinder. The USB 2.0 AutoConnect interface also ensures that file transfer to the computer is now even quicker.

The C-765 Ultra Zoom - main features:
· 4.0 million pixels
· 10x optical zoom, f2.8 - 3.7 (equiv. 38 - 380mm on 35mm camera)

This camera is the perfect holiday companion for the seasoned traveller; the compact C-770 Movie doesn't simply take superb digital shots, it also boasts a full-screen movie recording capability of 30 frames per second in MPEG4 quality - one of the most advanced of any existing digital cameras to date.

In combination with a 4 million pixel CCD, this high precision optical system ensures pictures of superb quality, even when printed in larger sizes.

This model also offers a broad range of shooting modes including Shutter Priority, Aperture Priority and Full Manual settings, allowing you to create your own individual images. The camera's range of scene programs (Portrait, Self Portrait, Night Scene, Sports, Landscape and Landscape with Portrait) proves extremely convenient when there is less time for manual adjustments.
