Press Release: Olympus mju 1010

This season sees the arrival of two powerful yet elegant additions to the award-winning Olympus µ [mju:] series. Perfectly suited to the needs of today’s sophisticated and fashion-conscious consumers, the µ [mju:] 840 and µ [mju:] 1010 offer users the choice of optical zoom levels ranging from 5x to 7x in remarkably thin and elegant casings. Integrated Dual Image Stabilisation helps protect against blur caused by camera shake, while an extra large 2.7in/6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD affords a magnificent view for plenty of framing and reviewing ease. And with a suite of advanced imaging tools such as Face Detection Technology, these 8.0 and 10.1Mp models represent a new generation for stylish compact photography. The Olympus µ [mju:] 840 and µ [mju:] 1010 will be available from February 2008 at recommended prices of £199.99 for the µ [mju:] 840 and £229.99 for the µ [mju:] 1010.

These charming new models marry first-rate design with innovative technological advances to form the ideal combination of performance and style. Their striking colours and slim metallic bodies are augmented by outstanding image quality and processing speed thanks to Olympus’ advanced TruePic III image processor. Meanwhile, Dual Image Stabilisation provides double-barrelled protection against blur caused by camera shake – which comes in especially handy at the high levels of magnification these cameras provide. In addition, intelligent solutions such as Face Detection Technology have been integrated to ensure the flawless depiction of human subjects by automatically determining optimal exposure and sharpness settings. For significantly enhanced results in low-light conditions, BrightCapture Technology has also been included. Moreover, an extra large 2.7in/6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD enables the easy preview and review of shots with all your friends – even in direct sunlight.
