An impressive combination
Good looks, great performance: the Olympus µ [mju:] 760
London, 25 January 2007 – The Olympus µ [mju:] 760 lets photographers express their individuality in style while capturing life’s unforgettable moments. Available in a choice of three colours, its sleek, weatherproof* body 7.1 Megapixels enabling beautiful, detailed pictures – no matter if it rains or shines. This 3x zoom camera also features Dual Image Stabilization, blur due to camera shake is therefore significantly reduced, ensuring that photographers can easily record those special moments where fast, spontaneous action is needed to capture the shot. And with its slim-line metal body, the µ [mju:] 760 slips easily into any pocket so that it is sure to be taken along everywhere.
Looks great from every angle
Smartly designed and available in Light Silver, Dark Blue and Ruby Red, the µ [mju:] 760 radiates on individual style that grabs attention. While the compact dimensions and elegant contours of its weatherproof*, metal body make it a pleasure to have and hold, its high spec ensures excellent photo results. A precision 3x optical zoom (37-111mm on a 35mm camera, 1:3.4-5.7) gives photographers the flexibility they need to bring subjects in close and a resolution of 7.1 Megapixels gives plenty of detail-capturing power. In addition, Dual Image Stabilization takes a double-barrelled approach to fend off unwanted blur through a combination of a mechanical image stabilizer and high ISO values.
See and capture more in low light
BrightCapture Technology guarantees the capture of great atmospheric shots, even in situations where only little light is available. The µ [mju:] 760 features special scene modes that increase the ISO value to 1600 – significantly reducing the need for flash – while retaining full 7.1 Megapixel image quality. This technology is also applied in the Movie mode to considerably extend the opportunities for capturing the magic of movement at night. Furthermore, BrightCapture Technology makes it easier to frame shots on the large 6.4cm LCD screen with 230,000 pixels, as the image displayed is around four times brighter than on a standard LCD.
Simply elegant, elegantly simple
The µ [mju:] 760 matches its versatility and good looks with ease of use. This ergonomically-formed camera offers a choice of 23 scene modes that cover many common shooting situations including Candle, Sports and three Underwater modes. Users are therefore ready to take perfect shots with the minimum of fuss and effort. And featuring both internal memory plus an xD-Picture Card slot, the µ [mju:] 760 offers plenty of flexibility for the storage of images and movies.
And should the photographer fancy giving their camera a real soaking, an Underwater Case is optionally available. It lets the fun of photography continue under the water’s surface – down to 40m below, in fact!
