Olympus C-7000 / C-70 announcement clippings


The C-70 / C-7000 includes a newly developed 5x optical zoom lens (f2.8/f4.8 - f8.0, 38mm - 190mm equivalent) that is specifically designed to maximize the imaging potential of its high-definition 7.1-megapixel CCD sensor. United with Olympus' exclusive TruePic TURBOTM Image Processor that suppresses noise and boosts image definition to ensure sharper, clearer images, the sensor and lens capture high-resolution images that deliver excellent color definition, clarity, and high contrast. With a fast startup of less than one second and a fast shutter release time, the C-70 / C-7000 ensures high-speed response that allows users to enjoy high-quality imaging the instant they place the camera in their hands.

The manual focusing function makes it possible to focus accurately and override autofocus. The area that the user wants to focus on is shown enlarged in the center of the LCD monitor, making it easy to adjust focus via the keypad on the back of the camera. Thanks to the monitor's large screen, the enlarged area is clearly visible for easy focusing.

For the first time on an Olympus compact digital camera, users can directly confirm exposure even when shooting. In any shooting modes the camera can be set to indicate overexposed areas with red highlighting, and underexposed areas with blue highlighting. In addition, a histogram can be displayed on the LCD monitor, making it possible for users to more easily achieve their creative intentions by identifying overexposed or underexposed areas.
