Press Release: Olympus mju 790 SW Winter Kit

Giving skiers, snowboarders and other winter sports fans the perfect gear they need to capture the stunning images and magic moments of their snow-bound exploits, Olympus releases the µ 790 SW Winter Kit. In addition to the shock, water and freezeproof µ 790 SW camera in Starry Silver, the kit also includes a neoprene case, a stylish Rossignol beanie and a fun snow tube. With this great combination, there’s no time like now to hit the slopes. The new kit is currently available in stores for a price of approximately £200.

Built for action, the Olympus µ 790 SW boasts exceedingly tough attributes. Shockproof to 1.5m, waterproof to 3m, and freezeproof to -10°C, this camera is engineered to withstand the demands of some of the harshest photographic conditions and will take the knocks, drops and ice-cold temperatures of a full day in the snow in its stride. Yet despite its rugged characteristics, this stylish camera for high-octane lifestyles looks great and doesn’t compromise on photographic features.

The µ 790 SW puts advanced opto-digital technology to work to immortalise the thrills and spills of the winter calendar. For versatility in locating and framing subjects, the 7.1Mp camera features a 3x optical zoom (equiv. to 38-114mm). The solid model also has the ability to recognise human faces as the main subject of a composition thanks to Face Detection Technology. Multiple scene modes are also available to optimise photographic settings for many other common shooting situations.

In a special cooperation with this season’s Rossignol Demo Tour , visitors can test the µ 790 SW first hand under extreme condition at over 120 events throughout Europe.
