If you don't need your digital camera to be as
tough as the Stylus
770 SW, but would still like protection from
inclement weather, then the Olympus Stylus
780 All-Weather fits the bill. Like all Stylus
digital cameras, it is protected by All-Weather
seals and gaskets that renders it splash-proof,
dust-proof and snow proof.
It features 7.1MP resolution and a large 2.5-in.
LCD screen with 140-degree viewing angle (left
to right, or up and down) and a Backlight Boost
Button that increases the brightness of the LCD
for excellent visibility, even in direct sunlight.
The Stylus 780 is similar to the Stylus 760 it replaces also featuring CCD-Shift
Image Stabilization that effectively counteracts
camera shake when using a long focal length and/or
slow shutter speed; and features Digital
Image Stabilization (DIS) which favours a high ISO
(up to ISO 1600)
and fast shutter speed to eliminate or reduce
blurred shots caused by subject movement. In addition, it sports a 5x optical zoom lens, a Shadow Adjustment Technology that lightens shadow areas and Perfect Shot Preview which displays a live, multi-frame window on the LCD so you can preview the effects of various settings including zoom, exposure, white balance and metering; then, simply select the frame with the setting you want.
26 useful shooting modes, including QuickTime
(640 x 480) 30fps with sound and 22 scene modes
simplify shooting. Bright Capture Technology helps
you frame shots on the LCD in dimly lit conditions.
The Built-in Help Guide conveniently displays
brief descriptions of camera settings and features
at the push of a button. PictBridge technology
enables photos to be printed directly from the
camera to any PictBridge-enabled printer.
The Olympus Stylus 780 should appeal
to those desiring an ultra compact with true image
stabilization, all-weather protection and the
Stylus famed ease of use.
