Like all our cameras, the E1240 is designed with a simple, intuitive user interface so anybody can use it. A 4X optical zoom and a 6.3X digital zoom combine to create a maximum zoom of 25.2X. And a spacious 3-inch LCD screen makes it easy to view the images you are capturing. Compact and stylish, the E1240 will surprise you with everything it can do. Additional features like in-camera panoramic stitching, red-eye removal, face-tracking, electronic stabilization and MPEG-4 movie recording give it all the functionality you want.

About General Imaging
Hiroshi “Hugh” Komiya had already been at the pinnacle of business. He spent nearly three decades with Bridgestone Firestone, the global tire company. Then it was on to the camera business, where he worked for Olympus Corporation for more than a decade, culminating in his tenure as President of Olympus Imaging Corporation. Not a bad record, to be sure. He retired on June 29, 2005, at the age of 63, and like retirees the world over, he soon had a lot more time to perfect his golf swing. And that was nice for a while. But the kind of drive that gives Komiya his greatest thrill doesn’t come from a tee shot. It comes from a business challenge met and conquered. It’s the drive behind the entrepreneurial spirit, the drive of ingenuity, the drive of one who has seen the inside of a big corporation, learned from it, and dreamed of a better way.
