Olympus Europe has announced the C-450 Zoom digital camera. The competitively priced C-450 offers a four megapixel sensor and three times optical zoom, as we would expect it stores its images on xD-Picture Card and is powered by AA batteries. It also has a 4x digital zoom and macro mode which can focus on objects just 20cm away.
Press Release (Olympus Europe):
Hamburg, 4 August 2003 - Often, the best photos are those taken on impulse. The time needed to change the camera settings can lead to precious moments being lost forever. Equipped with a range of precision metering systems and user-friendly scene programmes, the CAMEDIA C-450ZOOM takes care of the details to let you get the shot. The four million pixel resolution ensures these moments are recorded in stunning detail to xD-Picture Card. Topped by an affordable price, this 3x compact zoom camera is perfect for digital photography newcomers and snap-happy individuals.
The C-450ZOOM lets users capture the moment without getting bogged down in the minutiae of the shot. With the four megapixel resolution and image optimisation functions such as TruePic and Pixel Mapping, the camera produces high quality images with impressive detail and colour - even when printed in sizes above A4. Blown up sections retain their clarity as well. But it's not just the pixels that make the picture. The precision lens has also been constructed to meet the high quality requirements of digital capture. Its 3x zoom power is great for getting a closer look. By activating the 4x digital zoom, the photographer is able to move in even more - when combined with the optical zoom, a maximum magnification of 12x is possible. For subjects nearer to hand, the camera's macro mode can focus on objects just 20cm away.
With the full automatic programme setting, the user is quick on the draw. Also very convenient are the four scene programmes, which allow portraits, self-portraits, landscapes and night scenes to be captured with little effort. For clear images when using the night-scene mode, the camera engages the noise reduction function.
The built-in flash fires automatically under low light conditions. In addition, the user can also activate specific flash modes, such as red-eye-reduction.
To capture life-like colours, the C-450ZOOM offers an intelligent auto white balance system. The more creative snapper will also enjoy experimenting with the four preset options for different conditions: daylight, overcast, tungsten and fluorescent light.
Besides the optical viewfinder, the camera's large, 1.8 inch LCD monitor with a resolution of around 85,000 pixels enables effortless framing and the multi-language menu further facilitates operation.
Olympus has equipped the C-450ZOOM with a number of special functions. For example, photos can be changed to sepia or black and white to add more atmosphere to the shots. A convenient resizing option allows the reduction of the data's file size. The image rotation feature is particularly useful when viewing photos originally taken in the portrait format on a TV. Interesting creative avenues are opened up with the movie function which records 15 frame-per-second movie clips in the QuickTime Motion-JPEG format. Panorama and 2-in-1 shooting are also included.
Images are saved on the ultra-compact xD-Picture Card supplied with the camera.
The CAMEDIA C-450ZOOM supports the EXIF 2.2 standard as well as PRINT Image Matching II, enabling compatible printers to apply the saved data to produce optimised image printouts.
With the USB AutoConnect interface, images can be quickly and easily transferred to and from a computer. The Olympus CAMEDIA Master software included with the camera lets users process, edit and archive photos.
Combining four megapixel imaging with user-friendly operation at an attractive
price, the C-450ZOOM is ideal for saving the moment with ease and is particularly
suited for any newcomer to the world of digital imaging looking for excellent
