Olympus C-4000Z

By dpreview staff on Jun 26, 2002 at 17:17 GMT

Olympus has announced the four megapixel C-4000Z. This camera is (yet) another re-hash of the same body design which we first saw used back on the C-2000Z. The C-4000Z appears to be based on the C-3020Z but with the addition of a four megapixel sensor, TV output and an external flash connector. Note that this camera does not have the fast F1.8 lens of its bigger brother the C-4040Z, instead it has the slightly slower F2.8 (still respectable). Expected UK price will be £449.99 inc VAT, available in August.
