The Olympus Stylus 600 Digital is compact and easy-to-use, plus its all-weather construction adds a new dimension to its fun factor. Protective seals keep the Olympus Stylus 600 safe when used in rain, snow or at sea. With the addition of an optional underwater housing, you will also be able to take this camera on underwater excursions.

The Olympus Stylus 600 starts up in about 2 sec. and there is no practical shutter lag. An extra large 2.5 in. LCD with Olympus' exclusive Bright Capture Technology makes it extremely easy to view and compose shots in low levels of ambient light. It is, in fact, the best LCD "gain up" implementation we've seen so far.

If you are looking for a take-anywhere digital camera mostly for 4x6 in. prints and the occasional large print, the Olympus Stylus 600 has 6.0 MP resolution and 3x optical zoom. It also allows you to shoot at a high ISO 800 and 1600 in low-light situations, but at a reduced resolution of 1600 x 1200 pixels.

Its 26 Shooting Modes (Program Auto, 24 Scene Modes, Movie with no audio, limited only by memory card size) gives it a point-and-shoot simplicity, and PictBridge compatibility means you can print from your camera directly to any PictBridge-compatible printer (of any brand) without using a computer.

The Olympus Stylus 600 Digital is pocketable and well-built, and may just be the ideal companion for a trekker, camper or globe trotter -- or for someone who loves the outdoors, rain or shine, and don't want to leave their camera behind.
