OlympusOlympus Mju 820 digital camera : This autumn, Olympus introduces a camera that boasts both elegance and power. The Olympus Mju 820 is a dream come true with an impressive 5x optical zoom and stylish, weatherproof body in Midnight Black, Starry Silver, Ruby Red or Crystal Blue. Exciting colours and more magnification power are only the beginning: A giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD makes the Olympus Mju 820 camera ideal for framing and reviewing shots with friends. The Olympus Mju 820 also lets you say goodbye to blurry or poorly-exposed faces in photos: The integrated Face Detection Technology scans compositions for faces and then optimally adjusts exposure and focus settings to return the best results.
Olympus Mju 820Olympus 820 - Waterproof metal body
The 8.0 Megapixel resolution of the Olympus Mju 820 ensures not a precious bit of image detail goes missing. With a slim, weatherproof metal body in Midnight Black, Starry Silver, Ruby Red or Crystal Blue, the Olympus Mju 820 is the essential combination of form and function. From its attractive, slim-line exterior to its handy splash resistance - the Olympus Mju 820 camera is perfect for a hike in the rainforest or to simply have with you at all times, since you never know what life may bring. A 5x optical zoom (equivalent to 36-180mm) and 5.6x digital zoom combine to provide magnification power that takes you right to the heart of the action. And with a total of 8.0 Megapixels, every shot gets captured in the finest detail.

Olympus Mju 820 - Face Detection & Shadow Adjustment technology
Several innovations work together to ensure great results. For the most accurate and sharpest depiction of human faces possible, Face Detection Technology has been incorporated which sets optimum exposure and focus values for the faces in compositions. Shadow Adjustment Technology, meanwhile, ensures depictions of shadowy areas in the background stand out with their realism. BrightCapture Technology enhances images further by increasing sensitivity in low-light conditions. Additionally, the integration of the powerful TruePic III image processing engine improves colour and noise performance while also boosting camera speed. Matched with a giant 6.9cm HyperCrystal LCD, framing, shooting and reviewing pictures is both extremely comfortable and fun.

Olympus Mju 820 camera - Smile Shot scene mode
20 scene modes including Portrait, Night Scene, and Sports let the user quickly adjust to a number of different shooting situations. The Smile Shot scene mode can even determine when the subject smiles and automatically releases the shutter just at the right moment. On-board editing functions add extra practicality and fun to the mix: There’s Red-eye Fix which lets users correct this phenomenon right on the LCD; Expression Edit allows for the amusing distortion of faces; and Face Focus gradually blurs shots outward from the face in a starburst-formation.

Olympus Mju 820 digital camera - Memory & Availability
Furthermore, a total of 25 languages on board mean menu navigation is a piece of cake for virtually anyone. And internal memory plus an xD-Picture Card slot make it easy to expand storage space for additional photos at any time. The fun and stylish Olympus Mju 820 will be available from August 2007.

Olympus Mju 820 - HyperCrystal LCD
Due to a semi-transmissive technology the Olympus µ 820 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 820 - Face Detection Technology
Via the Face Detection Technology the Mju 820 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 820 - Shadow Adjustment Technology
Dark areas in pictures are a thing of the past with the Shadow Adjustment technology on the Olympus Mju 820. 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 820 - High ISO Setting
The Mju 820 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 820 - BrightCapture Technology
The Olympus Mju 820 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 820 - TruePic III image processor
The Olympus Mju 820 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.
