Olympus FE-290 : You can demand more from your camera with the 4x wide zoom Olympus FE-290 digital camera. It delivers the most versatility in its class - all in a pocket-sized silver or black housing. With a powerful 7.1 Megapixels and giant 7.6cm LCD, it’s a cinch to quickly frame and capture high-resolution shots which you can immediately show to all your friends. And thanks to this camera’s “One button, one function” design principle, creating great images is simpler than ever. With a slim metal body available in a choice of silver or black, the Olympus FE290 digital camera is taking the entry class to a new level. 7.1 Megapixels coupled with a 4x wide optical zoom (28-112mm equivalent) gives you the ability to see more.|

You can also count on added framing ease with a giant 7.6cm LCD, which not only makes it significantly easier to compose shots, but also to review images you’ve captured. Based on the “One button, one function” design principle, the Olympus FE 290 camera also includes a built-in guide function that’s always available for help when you need it. While 25 languages on board mean that almost everyone gets to navigate menus in his or her native tongue, 15 scene modes including Landscape and Portrait provide a quick and easy way to adjust to virtually any shooting situation. An additional mode dial allows you to move simply between eight programme modes.
Olympus FE-290 - Availability
Internal memory plus an xD-Picture Card slot makes the Olympus FE-290 fully-expandable, which is not only useful for capturing still images, but also for shooting movies with sound, which can be stored up to the memory capacity. For additional ease in the transfer, editing and archiving of all your media, the Olympus Master software is included along with the Muvee Pack trial version which lets you create movies using the images you have captured. The versatile Olympus FE-290 will be available from September 2007.

Olympus FE-290 - One button, One function
Controlling the Olympus FE-290 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-290 - Guide function
The general purpose and recommended use of the various Olympus FE290 digital 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-290 - High ISO setting
A special shooting mode, where the Olympus FE-290 automatically increases ISO sensitivity to allow shorter shutter speeds - which helps to avoid image blur caused by camera shake or by fast-moving objects.
