BrightCapture Technology coupled with Face Detection Technology - for the most accurate depiction of human subjects - guarantees images of the highest quality with no extra effort on your part. A 3x optical zoom works with the large 6.4cm LCD to make framing and reviewing shots a breeze. The integrated TruePic III image processor ensures that every pixel is immortalised in true Olympus quality, while the high ISO settings help to prevent blur caused by camera shake.

Olympus FE-280 - Face Detection Technology
A technology that searches for faces in a composition and recognises them as the main subject. The Olympus FE-280 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 FE-280 - One button, One function
Controlling the camera becomes child’s play. All essential functions like shooting, playback and viewing on the LCD, as well as erasing, are easily activated via a single button.

Olympus FE-280 - Guide function
The general purpose and recommended use of the various camera modes and menu options are briefly explained directly on the LCD. 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.

Olympus FE-280 - 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 FE-280 - TruePic III image processor
Olympus’ newest-generation image processing engine. It 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 FE-280 - High ISO setting
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.
