Review Date: Dec 6, 2005

Olympus Stylus 600 Digital
Mouseover image for back view

Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Olympus Stylus 600 Digital (Mju 600 Digital in UK) is little brother to the Stylus 800. It features 6MP resolution, 3x optical zoom, an extra large and bright 2.5-in. LCD monitor, and of course its all-weather construction for everyday use, rain or shine.

The Olympus Stylus 600 provides 26 useful shooting modes, including QuickTime® Movie mode and three underwater modes. A built-in Help GUIDE provides tips to help you decide which setting is ideal for each situation.

A new Bright Capture Technology brightens the preview on your LCD and brilliantly captures images, even in dim light.

PictBridge technology enables photos to be printed directly from the Olympus Stylus 600 to any PictBridge-enabled printer.

The Olympus Stylus 600 Digital should appeal to Point-and-shoot photographers desiring a compact, tough, all-weather digital camera with the famous ease-of-use of the Stylus line of cameras.
