Olympus Camedia C-1 Zoom ... exclusive TruePic image optimization system which guarantees impressive true-color results with amazing clarity. Furthermore, automatic operation and the user-friendly menu ensure effortless shooting. This affordable digital compact camera comes in a sleek, stylish design. Sporting a stylish, flowing design and compact form, the C-1 ZOOM is sure to get noticed. It slips comfortably into just about any pocket. The opto-digital specialist Olympus has made sure this digital camera offers the level of photo performance and enjoyment found in analog compact models at a price the first-time user can afford.
The bright lens provides the photographer with more versatility when shooting in low-light conditions, such as at dusk. By using the 3x optical zoom together with the 2x digital zoom, the user can move in 6x closer for more detail or pull out for the big picture. Precision metering systems ensure effortless operation. While the Through-The-Lens (TTL) autofocus delivers superb sharpness, the camera's ESP light metering system takes readings from numerous points in the frame to find the optimal exposure settings. In tricky lighting conditions, the photographer may also use the exposure compensation. Life-like colors are assured by automatic white balance. Four pre-set white balance modes (sunlight, overcast days, tungsten and florescent light) are also available. To improve the picture's gradation, color and contrast, this model also utilizes the innovative Olympus TruePic algorithm. Olympus has paid special attention to making this camera very user-friendly. Automatic settings offer trouble-free, single button operation. The first-time user will also find it easy to try out the manually-adjustable features thanks to the well-laid-out menu, displayed in the color TFT LCD monitor on the rear of the camera. The arrow-key makes scrolling through the options fast and comfortable. "Shooting digital" lets the photographer check - and enjoy - the results immediately on the LCD monitor. If the photo is not as intended or does not show the desired effect, it can be deleted and a new shot taken. Olympus has pooled its opto-digital experience to make the C-1 ZOOM [c-you] a camera that incorporates top performance and ease-of-use at an attractive price. With the second model in the [c-you] series planned for this summer, Olympus presents a superb opportunity for everyone to discover digital photography.
