Slim, good looks with twisting lens
Slimline and lightweight the FE-5500 from Olympus offers the convenience of ultra-compact dimensions for easy mobility, yet also boasts high performance and produces excellent results. The special twisting lens provides its unmistakable appearance, and being just 24.3mm thick and extremely light, you won’t even notice carrying it.
Easy shooting in 5 megapixel quality
Inside the camera, the high quality optical system contains three aspherical lens elements and provides 3x zoom power (35mm equiv: 35-105mm) 1:2.8-4.8. Together with a 4x digital zoom this allows a maximum magnification up to 12x. No matter which zoom factor is selected, images will have plenty of detail and definition and come out razor-sharp at a resolution of 5 million pixels. Thanks to a variety of scene programmes, such as sports, indoor or landscape, photographers can exercise their creativity while other features like movie recording with sound and Super Macro mode make this a versatile package.
Images and movies can be reviewed and presented on the 2-inch colour LCD monitor and are saved in the 14MB internal memory. For greater storage requirements, a slot for xD-Picture Cards is provided via which photographers can then also enjoy the added benefit of a panorama shooting functionality*. In addition printing results couldn’t be easier, the FE-5500 adheres to PictBridge standards meaning images can be printed directly on any compatible printer – such as the Olympus P-10 – without the need for a PC.
