Olympus Stylus 300 ... for great performance and a stylish design. A precision 3x optical zoom lens and high-quality CCD with 3.2 million pixels ensure clarity and sharpness. And whether shooting in full-auto mode to capture the scene quickly or using one of the camera's special scene modes, recording panorama shots or short movies, this model matches your lifestyle while guaranteeing first-class results without a fuss.
Fashions come and go but real style is timeless. This is certainly true for the Olympus µ[mju: ] brand. For over ten years, the µ[mju: ] has been a synonym for stylish and elegant analog cameras. Now it enters the digital age with the µ[mju: ] 300 Digital and µ[mju: ] 400 Digital. The flowing, elegant lines and compact, metal body of these models make sure you are the center of attraction, no matter whether you're at a chic event or low-key get-together. But they are more than lifestyle accessories for the party circuit. These models are also the first digital cameras in the world with weatherproof metal bodies so shooting may continue even after the rain has started. The versatile 3x zoom lens (equivalent to 35 - 105mm on a 35mm camera) gets you closer be it to the flirtatious smile coming from across the room or to your friends' activities on the ski slope. Operation of the µ[mju: ] Digital cameras is easy. With advanced automatic modes and scene programs, you can just enjoy shooting digital while letting the camera do the work. Recording in up to 3.2 million pixels and using a small, high-precision lens constructed especially to suit each camera's CCD, these new cameras deliver high-quality images that impress even when printed in A4 format.
For newcomers to digital photography, the new model comes with a selection of five scene programs (portrait, self-portrait, night scene, landscape, landscape plus portrait), and functions such as TTL autofocus and Digital ESP (Electro Selective Pattern) light metering which ensure the correct sharpness and brightness of the images. In addition to full auto white balance, four pre-set white balance modes allow the user to optimize the camera settings for shooting in light from a particular source, such as tungsten or fluorescent bulbs. Thanks to the 1.5-inch color LCD monitor, pictures taken can be shared with others immediately after capture. It further enables users to resize shots without needing a computer.
A host of other functions such as macro and panorama mode, 2 in 1 shooting, recording of short movie sequences or the built-in-flash with red-eye reduction further heighten shooting enjoyment and extend the possibilities. After taking pictures, users have the option to change the photos captured in color, to black and white or sepia, giving compositions a special effect. The µ[mju: ] 300 Digital comes with the extremely compact storage media xD-Picture Card and a quick charger for recharging the ultra-small lithium-ion battery in a maximum of two hours.

have realised that I have owned my Olympus Stylus digital camera for about 8 years now and it is perfect still, obviously it has been surpassed by newer models ( I do have a newer model myself) but I cannot fault my Olympus at all. The camera cost £250 8 years ago, it is 3.2 megapixels, which has been superceeded by even the most basic models, even mobile phones often have more megapixels these days, but having said that the clarity and sharpness of the photos are superb. I had owned a digital camera before the Olympus, but quite honestly there was no comparison, the quality of the Olympus really speaks for itself. It has a metal case, with a ...

I purchased this camera 4 months ago mainly to take photos of items for uploading onto Ebay, and general album photos. I did a little bit of research before purchasing and for the cost it appeared to be good value for money. I should mention that Ive never owned or used a digital camera previous to this one. It is a very rugged, compact and weatherproof unit which was proven on a recent stag weekend in Berlin, it spent the whole weekend in my pocket and came away unscathed (not an easy task for anything). Simplicity itself to operate, you open the lens cover and the lens comes out automatically, there is a two-stage shutter button, you press the shutter ... Read the complete review

I purchased this camera prior to going on holiday as I figured the digital camcorder was too cumbersome to carry and I didn't want to have to mess about with normal camera film. The camera is very stylish with a chrome look about it. The lens is covered by a slide at the front which protects it from the elements - in fact the whole camera is supposed to be 'weatherproof'! This is a 3.2 megapixel camera and the quality from it is superb. It really picks up colours fantastically. There is also a zoom function (both optical (3x) and digital (4x)) which is good. The cameras storage choice is xD cards which are made by Fuji and Olympus. ... Read the complete review
