Category: Point-and-Shoot

The Olympus Stylus 730 All-Weather (Mju 730 Digital in UK) heralds a brand new design for Olympus compact digital cameras. It has 7.1MP resolution, 3x optical zoom, a high resolution (230,000 pixels) and extra large 3.0-in. LCD monitor. Like all Stylus digital cameras, it is protected by All-Weather seals and gaskets that renders it splash-proof, dust-proof and snow proof.

Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) favours a high ISO (up to ISO 3200) and fast shutter speed to reduce or eliminate blurred shots caused by camera shake and/or subject movement.

Bright Capture Technology helps you frame shots on the LCD in dimly lit conditions. Coupled with Available Light Portrait, Indoors, Candle, and Image Blur scene modes, this enables you to view and capture low-light shots.

Other user-friendly features include an extra large 3.0-in. LCD monitor, large "rectangular" buttons for easy operation, and button icons that illuminate automatically in low-light.

Perfect Fix editing allows you to brighten up dark images, reduce red-eye and eliminate blurriness (using Digital Image Stabilization Edit) after the shot is taken right in the camera.

The Olympus Stylus 730 provides 24 useful shooting modes, including QuickTime (640 x 480 @ 30fps) with sound.

PictBridge technology enables photos to be printed directly from the camera to any PictBridge-enabled printer.

The Olympus Stylus 730 should appeal to those desiring an ultra compact with all-weather protection and the Stylus famed ease of use.
