Olympus Stylus 800
Olympus' new Bright Capture Technology makes it possible to clearly compose low light subjects on the LCD, and with high sensitivity options (up to ISO 1600) and an enhanced auto-focus, even action photos can be captured in low levels of ambient light.
Viewing images under the glare of sunlight is also improved thanks to Olympus' exclusive HyperCrystal(tm) LCD technology. The HyperCrystal technology enables clear, high-contrast images - even when composing subjects with the sun at your back. Images are viewable on the 2.5-inch LCD from 160-degrees, so photos can be composed from a range of angles and viewed by several people at once.
The Stylus 800 combines an 8.0-megapixel CCD image sensor with Olympus' exclusive image processor, TruePic TURBO(tm), which is said to significantly enhance image quality and delivers faster overall processing speeds for rapid startup, shutter release and playback. The addition of manual Aperture Priority and Shutter Priority modes, combined with 19 fully automatic pre-set scene modes, gives users versatility and control for optimal performance in any situation. In-camera editing features such as Red-Eye Fix, Sepia and Black & White is also available.
The Stylus 800 features a glossy finish, clean lines and smooth, rounded edges that make it comfortable to hold and easy to handle. At a compact size of 4.1" (W) x 2.3" (H) x 1.3" (D) the camera fits snugly into a pocket and won't crowd a backpack. The circular lens barrier tucks away inside the camera body with a snap when powered on, and protects the lens with an impenetrable seal when closed, leaving the camera face smooth and flat.
The body is constructed of durable, lightweight metal with rubber gaskets throughout the interior to ensure that rain, sleet, snow won't get in the way of great photos. And with its new optimized battery design, the Stylus 800 can take hundreds of shots between charges.
