“ Olympus µ[MJU:] 750 - Digital camera - compact - 7.1 Mpix - optical zoom: 5 x - supported memory: xD-Picture Card, xD Type H, xD Type M - starry silver „
The µ 750 boasts a stylish metal body that offers weatherproof protection, letting it be used rain or shine. Not only does the gently tapered design look great, but it also makes it a treat to hold. 7.1 million pixels provide for razor-sharp images, which can be viewed on the large 6.4cm LCD.
Equipped with a 5x, 1:3.3-5.0 zoom lens (equivalent to 36-180mm on a 35mm camera), photographers can enjoy shooting flexibility not seen before in this camera class. Subjects from afar can now be brought in much closer - thereby expanding the potential application of these models without expanding their physical dimensions.
So that the shots always obtain the sharpness they deserve, the µ 750 incorporates Dual Image Stabilization. On the one hand, this comprises a Mechanical Image Stabilizer, which helps to avoid blurry pictures caused by camera shake. A built-in gyro sensor detects camera movement and adjusts the CCD accordingly. On the other hand, high ISO values further reduce the likelihood of image blur.
Thanks to BrightCapture Technology, framing and taking photos under low-light conditions are far from being a haphazard affair. To begin, the high-contrast 6.4cm LCD with 215.000 pixels is around 4x brighter than normal to make locating subjects on the screen significantly easier.
BrightCapture Technology is also used to enhance shooting capabilities in a wide range of challenging lighting situations - with no need to use the flash. This makes capturing the atmosphere of candlelit dinners, indoor parties or other night scenes much more effective. Even at the high maximum ISO value of 1600, it lets photographers take full advantage of the entire 7.1 Megapixel resolution. But not only still images benefit from the capabilities BrightCapture Technology affords.
With its lightweight and decisively ergonomic form, the µ 750 fits like a glove in the hand. And so that shooting is just as comfortable, as well as Auto shooting mode, Olympus has equipped this model with a choice of 23 scene modes (including Portrait, Landscape and Sports) that cover just about every common photo situation.
While operation is largely intuitive, a built-in Guide Function helps out in instances where users are uncertain. The various main camera features, including menu options and scene modes, are explained directly on the cameras' LCD. In this way photographers will be able to get the most out of their camera wherever they are - even if the user manual isn't close by. Furthermore, Olympus breaks the language barrier. The GUI, Guide Function, user manual and software are all available in a total of 25 European languages. This makes the cameras completely understandable in 39 European countries - a feat only achieved by Olympus - so it's easy for everyone to operate these models regardless of the native tongue.
The µ 750 is the ideal choice for those who want to accept no limits. Stylish design, exceptional zoom performance, BrightCapture Technology, ergonomic handling and overall high image quality plus mechanical image stabilization comprise a formidable combination that's hard to beat.
