"Because of the ultra-wide zoom
capability of our new camera, Olympus needed an EVF solution that
would provide users with the viewing precision required throughout
the entire range of the optical zoom,"
according to Olympus.
"For photographers, the benefits of the Kopin EVF are crystal
clear. The display produces a brilliant, natural color,
distortion-free image and video capture, regardless of lighting
conditions. We know that amateur and experienced photographers alike
will be delighted with how this EVF complements the many advance
features of our new camera."
The SP-550 UZ's focal
from 28 to 504mm (35 mm camera equivalent), enabling photographers to
get up close and personal with their subjects, even when they are
shooting from a distant vantage point. The new Olympus model also
offers the highest burst rate of any compact digital camera, shooting
at super fast 15 frames per second. Other advanced features of the
SP-550 UZ are Dual Image Stabilization that eliminates blur,
Pre-Capture technology to capture anything that moves, and Bright
Capture Technology that allows to shoot in low light without a flash.
The CyberEVF 230K
incorporates in a
single module all the EVF components an OEM requires: a full-colour
micro display with QVGA (320 x 240) resolution, ultra-thin
back-light, optics, and housing with an easy-to-use focusing
mechanism. This complete EVF solution enabled Olympus to shorten the
design time for its new SP-550 UZ and reduce the assembly cost.
"With a history
nearly 90 years, the Olympus brand has achieved global appeal through
consistent innovation and enduring quality," said Dr. John
C.C. Fan, Kopin's president and chief executive officer. "We
are delighted about the opportunity to partner with a company that,
like our own, is driven by an unyielding commitment to excellence.
Our relationship with Olympus represents another milestone in our
goal to make the CyberEVF the EVF standard for the newest generation
of high-zoom, high-resolution cameras."
