The Olympus µ DIGITAL 500
Objavljeno dne 29 November 2004
With the µ DIGITAL 500, Olympus expands the very successful µ[mju:] series with a 5.0 million pixel model. Its extra-large 6.4cm / 2.5 inch LCD monitor assures a stunning view. Not only for checking and displaying the shots, it also brings added ease for framing compositions. Thanks to the innovative Hyper Crystal technology for high-contrast depictions, the camera’s LCD convinces with incredibly wide viewing angles. The µ DIGITAL 500 features a precision 3x optical zoom (1:3.1-5.2) and utilises TruePic TURBO to ensure images are captured in rich, vivid colour and with maximum clarity. Video with sound, Super Macro mode and a choice of 20 scene programmes provide excellent versatility for trouble-free shooting in all manner of situations. Naturally, as with all cameras bearing the µ[mju:] name, it defines itself with a striking design as well as offering first-class performance. The new retracting lens barrier gives the µ DIGITAL 500 an immediate air of elegance and matched with its choice of silver or navy blue colours, its sleek, weather-proof* metal body will certainly catch the eye.
With the µ DIGITAL 500, users can count on great results. No matter if printed out, displayed on a TV or computer screen or shown on the integrated, extra-large 6.4cm / 2.5 inch LCD monitor. The latter utilises Hyper Crystal LCD technology where the liquid crystal molecules are laid out in a radial pattern, giving 160° viewing angles from all directions and under virtually any lighting conditions.
Top design and outstanding performance are the hallmarks of the latest offering from the Olympus µ[mju:] family. Shipped with a 32MB xD-Picture Card, Olympus Master software, Li-12B rechargeable battery and charger, the 5.0 million pixel µ DIGITAL 500 will hit the shelves from the beginning of 2005.
