Olympus IR-300


Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Olympus IR-300 comes in a stylish and slim durable magnesium body, and forms part of the Olympus Total Imaging Solution. The Olympus Total Imaging Solution is personal digital imaging at its easiest, allowing you to take pictures, print them (Olympus P-S100 Printer), and store and save them automatically (Olympus S-HD-100 Hard Disk Drive). Coming soon is the S-DVD-100 DVD/CD Reader/Writer.

The Olympus IR-300 has 5 megapixels resolution, 3x optical zoom and 19 selectable shooting modes including QuickTime Movie Mode w/Sound, Cuisine, Fireworks, Candle and more. The Olympus IR-300 does not have a viewfinder but has a large 2.0 in. high-resolution (at 210,000 pixels) Anti-glare (Semi-transmissive) LCD monitor. A long shutter speed of 4 sec. allows some night photography; a Super Macro mode allows you to move in as close as 5 cm (2 in.).

The Olympus IR-300 is PictBridge-compatible, allowing direct printing from the camera to a PictBridge-compatible printer without going through a PC. As part of the Olympus Total Imaging Solution, the Olympus IR-300 connects directly to Olympus' compact S-HD-100 40 GB Hard Drive Storage System or P-S100 Digital Photo Printer.

The Olympus IR-300 should appeal to those desiring a fun to use, ultra compact point-and-shoot digital camera that integrates with a digital printer and hard drive storage solution.
