If the four colors in which Olympus offers its tough little µ 790 SW don't quite float your boat, there's no need to panic. There is now a fifth option in the form of this fetching shade of lime green. Guaranteed to attract the attention of any (conscious) subject you should choose to aim it at, the camera also promises exclusivity with a mere 5000 to be distributed across Europe. The pricing should remain the same as the 'standard' edition.

The Olympus µ 790 SW Lime Green edition: Eye-catching design for active lifestyles
London, 16 October 2007 – Olympus is set to brighten up the gloomy winter days with the release of the striking new µ 790 SW Lime Green edition. Limited to just 5,000 models in Europe, this distinctive camera is the perfect exclusive accessory for those with active, colourful lifestyles. In addition to its attention-grabbing appearance, the 7.1 Megapixel µ 790 SW Lime Green is bursting with powerful features. Shockproof*, waterproof** and freezeproof, it never loses its shine no matter what life throws at it. Make a personal statement with this season’s most invigorating stand-out model.
Boasting a body built for action, the 7.1 Megapixel µ 790 SW Lime Green can go where other cameras can’t. Whether at the beach, doing a round of snowboarding or navigating the hazards of a kids’ party, this camera withstands it all.
The µ 790 SW Lime Green matches elegance with power and performance. For versatility in locating and framing subjects, it features a 3x optical zoom (equiv. to 38-114mm). The ability to recognise human faces as the main subject of a composition through implementation of Face Detection Technology ensures optimal focus and exposure in the areas you want. What’s more, the µ 790 SW Lime Green applies innovative technology to deliver stunningly realistic results through the lightening of shadowy areas such as shade under a tree or backlit subjects. And ensuring photographic settings are tailored for most shooting situations, multiple scene modes are available, including four specifically made for underwater use.
The limited edition Olympus µ 790 SW Lime Green is destined to turn heads wherever it is taken and arrives in shops in mid October 2007.
