The popular Olympus µ series is once again setting the standard for cameras that combine graceful design with practical innovative features. Hidden inside its super-slim metal body the Olympus µ-9000 has a wide 10x optical zoom (28-280mm) that’s powerful enough to capture wide, open landscapes and then zoom in to closely scrutinize details on the horizon. Olympus µ-9000 is great for photographing people too. Face Detection Technology identifies up to three human faces in a photo, then focuses and sets the exposure so that they look their best, and the wide viewing angles of the bright 6.9cm/2.7” HyperCrystal III LCD make framing photos easy even in bright sunlight and at awkward angles.
The Olympus µ-9000 includes Dual Image Stabilisation. This reduces blur caused by camera shake by minutely adjusting the position of their 12 Megapixel CCDs to compensate for inadvertent camera movement, and uses higher ISO values to ensure faster shutter speeds. The µ-9000 will be available in mid February 2009, in Midnight Black and Royal Blue versions.
