Olympus SP-310 announcement clippings

With its 7.1 million pixels and four exposure modes, the Olympus SP-310 hands the photographer the freedom to experiment whilst a precision 3x optical zoom lens (equivalent to 38-114mm on a 35mm camera) ensures that crisp and razor-sharp images are produced each and every time.

Featuring a range of focusing options from regular iESP autofocus to spot and multi-spot AF the SP-310 also has a manual focus option. In addition a histogram function is available, both in playback mode and in real-time whilst framing, to enable exposure distribution to be checked on the extra-large 6.4cm LCD.
