The Stylus 1200 tops off that particular range - known as mju in markets beyond the US. Combining 12 Megapixels with the latest and greatest innovations including Face-Detection, Shadow Adjustment Technology and the new TruePic III image processor. The 3x 35-105mm equivalent zoom is a little tame but you can't deny it's one cool-looking little digicam.

The Olympus µ [mju:] 1200: Elegance meets ingenuity
London, 23 August 2007 – Introducing the brilliant Olympus µ [mju:] 1200. It packs an incredible 12 Megapixels and boasts a number of cutting-edge innovations including Face Detection Technology for the proper exposure and focusing of faces. In addition, Shadow Adjustment Technology has been included to detect the shadow areas in a composition and corrects the exposure for a more detailed, realistic image. This powerful addition to the stylish µ [mju:] range comes in a weatherproof* metal body in Midnight Black, which protects it against the elements. A giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD makes the framing and reviewing of shots fun and easy – even in direct sunlight. And the incorporation of the new TruePic III image processor ensures faithful reproduction of image colours, excellent noise performance and quicker processing speeds.
The Olympus µ [mju:] 1200 will be available from October 2007 at around £270. For further information call 0800 0720070 or visit www.olympus.co.uk.
Built like a champ
A weatherproof* metal body in Midnight Black oozes style, and makes the µ [mju:] 1200 the ideal companion. Capture you and your friends at the poolside, and don’t miss a thing with a stunning 12 Megapixels of detail-capturing power. Also preview and review shots with ease thanks to a giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD.
Olympus’ BrightCapture Technology brightens shots in low-light conditions, while a 3x optical zoom (equiv. to 35-105mm on a 35mm camera) combines with a 5x digital zoom to get you closer still without having to budge an inch. Super Macro mode expands the creative possibilities even more by getting you as close as 10cm to subjects! And the powerful new TruePic III image processor is the icing on the cake. Its realistic colour reproduction, improved noise performance and quicker overall processing speeds make photography with the µ [mju:] 1200 even more rewarding.
Only the brightest innovations have been incorporated into this elegant and powerful compact model: A high ISO setting increases sensitivity so that images come out more brilliant, even in low-light situations. Shadow Adjustment Technology works by detecting the shadowy parts of a composition and automatically optimising exposure for these areas – resulting in more realistic, detailed images no matter what the lighting conditions. In addition, Face Detection Technology scans for faces, which it then automatically focuses and properly exposes to significantly improve the depiction of family and friends.
20 scene modes including Night Scene or Sports make it easy for novices and experts alike to quickly adjust settings for almost any shooting situation. In addition, the Smile Shot scene mode automatically fires the shutter when it detects that the subject is smiling, and integrated Perfect Fix lets you retroactively correct blur and red-eye directly on the camera’s LCD. An internal memory plus an xD-Picture Card slot means that running out of storage space needs never to be an issue. Included are an LI-42B battery and the Olympus Master software plus a trial version of Muvee Pack – which make it especially easy to organise, archive and share your shots.
