Olympus UK Press Release
Hamburg, 25 January 2007 – The Olympus µ 760 lets photographers express their individuality in style while capturing life’s unforgettable moments. Available in a choice of three eye-catching colours, its sleek, weatherproof* body accepts no limits and packs 7.1 Megapixels, enabling beautiful, detailed pictures – no matter if rain or shine. This 3x zoom camera also integrates Dual Image Stabilization. Blur due to camera shake is therefore significantly reduced, ensuring that photographers will easily be able to record those special moments when fast, spontaneous action is required to capture the shot. And with its slim-line metal body, the µ 760 slips easily into any pocket so that it is sure to be taken along everywhere. Therefore, if it’s in your life, it’s sure to be in your Olympus µ 760.
Looks great from every perspective
Smartly designed and sporting colours that include Light Silver, Dark Blue and Ruby Red, the µ 760 radiates individual style that grabs attention. While the compact dimensions and elegant contours of its weatherproof* metal body make it a pleasure to have and hold, its performance attributes ensure excellent photo results. A precision 3x optical zoom (37-111mm on a 35mm camera, 1:3.4-5.7) gives photographers the flexibility they need to bring subjects in close and a resolution of 7.1 Megapixels ensures plenty of detail-capturing power. In addition, the integration of Dual Image Stabilization takes a double-barrelled approach to defend against unwanted blur through the combination of a mechanical image stabiliser and high ISO values.
See and capture more in low light
Incorporation of BrightCapture Technology guarantees the capture of great atmospheric shots, even in situations where there is only little light available. The µ 760 features special scene modes that increase the ISO value to 1600 – so the flash needs to be used less often – while retaining full 7.1 Megapixel image quality. This technology is also applied in the movie mode to considerably extend the opportunities for capturing the magic of movement at night. Furthermore, BrightCapture Technology makes it a breeze to frame shots on the large 6.4cm LCD with 230,000 pixels, as views are around four times brighter than on a standard LCD.
Simply elegant, elegantly simple
The µ 760 matches its versatility and good looks with ease of use. This ergonomically-formed camera offers a choice of 23 scene modes that cover many common shooting situations including Candle, Sports and three Underwater modes. Users are therefore primed to take perfect shots with a minimum of fuss and effort. Ensuring easy operability for just about anyone, an amazing 25 languages are on board. And featuring both internal memory plus an xD-Picture Card slot, the µ 760 offers plenty of flexibility for the storage of images and movies.
Significantly enhancing the camera’s weatherproof attributes, an Underwater Case is optionally available. It lets the fun of photography continue under the water’s surface – up to 40m below, in fact!
A versatile and attractive addition to the µ family, the metal-bodied µ 760 is available in a choice of three colours. The head-turning, must-have model combines an exquisite slim-line design with advanced, easy-to-use technology and will be available from March 2007.
