Olympus C-730 Ultra Zoom Quick Look
We were lucky enough to have a very early Japanese pre-production unit in house for a couple of weeks. Although we can't publish any images from the camera I do have a few additional images of the camera including the new combined xD / SmartMedia slot which promises support for what are now 'legacy' SmartMedia cards and the new xD Picture Card.
Phil: The camera we had was so early that it only had Japanese menus and isn't finished to final production quality (note the rear of the camera isn't the final finish / color). Hence the 'Pre-Production' warning labels on the images below.
