OlympusOlympus Mju 1200 digital camera : Introducing the brilliant Olympus Mju 1200 digital compact camera. It packs an incredible 12 Megapixel resolution and boasts a number of leading-edge innovations including Face Detection Technology for the proper exposure and focusing of faces. In addition, Shadow Adjustment Technology has been integrated in the Mju 1200 to detect dark areas in a composition and optimises exposure for a more realistic image. This powerful addition to the stylish Olympus Mju 1200 comes in a weatherproof metal body in Midnight Black, which protects it against the elements. A giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD makes the framing and reviewing of shots fun and easy - even in direct sunlight.

The incorporation of the new TruePic III image processor ensures the most faithful reproduction of image colours, excellent noise performance and quicker processing speeds. A weatherproof metal body in Midnight Black oozes with style and makes the Olympus Mju 1200 the ideal companion. Capture you and your friends at the poolside, and don’t miss a thing with a stunning 12 Megapixels of detail-capturing power. Preview and review shots with ease thanks to a giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD which boasts perfect views.

Olympus Mju 1200 - BrightCapture Technology
The incorporated BrightCapture Technology brightens shots in low-light conditions, while a 3x optical zoom (equiv. to 35-105mm on a 35mm camera) combines with a 5x digital zoom to get in closer without you changing position. Super Macro mode expands the creative possibilities by getting you as close as 10cm to subjects. And the powerful new TruePic III image processor is the icing on the cake: Its realistic colour reproduction, improved noise performance and quicker overall processing speeds make photography with the Mju 1200 even more rewarding.

Olympus Mju 1200 - Shadow Adjustment Technology
Only the brightest innovations have been incorporated into this elegant and powerful compact model: A high ISO setting increases sensitivity so that images come out more brilliant, even in low-light situations. Shadow Adjustment Technology works by detecting the shadowy parts of a composition and automatically optimises exposure for these areas - resulting in more realistic images no matter what the lighting conditions. In addition, Face Detection Technology scans for faces which it then automatically focuses and properly exposes to significantly improve the depiction of human subjects.

Olympus Mju 1200 digital camera - Smile Shot scene
20 scene modes including Night Scene or Sports make it easy for novices and experts alike to quickly adjust settings for almost any shooting situation. In addition, the Smile Shot scene mode automatically releases the shutter when it detects that the subject is smiling, and integrated Perfect Fix lets you retroactively correct blur and red-eye directly on the camera’s LCD.

Olympus Mju 1200 - HyperCrystal LCD
Due to a semi-transmissive technology the Olympus µ 1200 is equipped with a HyperCrystal LCD display, which employs an additional layer at the bottom of the LCD to reflect light from external light sources. This enhances the brightness of the LCD, so even in direct sunlight images are displayed sharply and with three times the contrast of conventional displays. Also, it provides for viewing angles of up to 170° without glare or shadow, so images can be framed from a variety of angles and viewed by several people at once.

Olympus Mju 1200 - Face Detection Technology
Via the Face Detection Technology the Mju 1200 camera can search for faces in a composition and recognises them as the main subject. It then automatically puts them in focus and optimally adjusts exposure to create an image that’s sharp in the right places and ideally exposed.

Olympus Mju 1200 - High ISO Setting
The Mju 1200 features a special shooting mode, where the camera automatically increases ISO sensitivity to allow shorter shutter speeds - which helps to avoid image blur caused by camera shake or by fast-moving objects.

Olympus Mju 1200 - BrightCapture Technology
The Olympus Mju 1200 features BrightCapture Technology, a technology developed for better shooting results in low light situations. It works in two ways: i) All available pixel information from the image sensor is used to provide a view on the LCD that’s up to four times brighter than conventional types, to make framing easy even in dark surroundings. ii) In certain shooting modes sensitivity is increased (resolution is sometimes reduced), which results in well-exposed images with accurate colour reproduction, high contrast and definition, even when not using the flash. Scene modes that benefit from BrightCapture Technology include Candle, Night Scene and Available Light.

Olympus Mju 1200 - Shadow Adjustment Technology
Dark areas in pictures are a thing of the past with the Shadow Adjustment technology on the Olympus Mju 1200. Exposure gets improved by using a sensor that works much like the human eye, dark parts of a composition (e.g. a shadow under a tree) are identified and the camera then adjusts the exposure settings accordingly for those areas. The result is a more realistic and detailed picture.

Olympus Mju 1200 - TruePic III image processor
The Olympus Mju 1200 features the newest-generation image processing engine, the TruePic III. This image processor automatically enhances important aspects of image quality including: Colour reproduction (colour range, saturation and brightness), picture sharpness (reduced image noise, improved edge reproduction), as well as providing faster processing speeds.

Olympus Mju 1200 - Guide function
The general purpose and recommended use of the various camera modes and menu options are briefly explained directly on the LCD of the Mju 1200. This makes shooting easier and means users will rarely need to consult the manual - a real benefit for photographers when on the go, as well as those looking for a short theoretical briefing without having to carry or consult guidebooks.
