The PRO digital SLR for medicine and science


Dennis Hissink : 2004-06-30 04:05:39
Ever more dermatologists, dentists, plastic surgeons as well as hospitals, universities and research institutes are using digital photography to capture images for comparison and documentation purposes. They all appreciate the advantages offered by this photo technology, the immediate control and processing possibilities plus very low costs. However, these alone would not have been enough for them to change from their trusted analogue camera systems. The ability of digital cameras, especially the SLRs, to record images with extremely high precision was crucial in convincing them of the technology's value. And among the professional models currently available, the Olympus E-1 is one of the best in its field.


Two macro flash systems for the Olympus E-System


Dennis Hissink : 2004-06-28 01:42:37
The Olympus E-1 is one of the best digital SLR cameras around. Proof of this are the many media awards the Olympus SLR system has received. In the first six months alone, it collected almost 100 awards from publications around the world. Recently, the range of accessories for this SLR was extended by the addition of two macro flash systems. Both the ring and twin flash sets come with an adapter ring and controller. They allow optimal, shadow-free illumination and turn the Olympus E-1 into an innovative tool for all dermatologists and dentists. Naturally, the flash units are also available separately. Digital images not only help the medical professional communicate with the patient, but also with his or her external support specialists.

Dennis Hissink : 2004-03-30 03:59:30
Olympus Studio, an extended version of the Olympus Viewer software which comes bundled with the Olympus E-1 camera, is now available in a new version. This latest release not only makes processing RAW image files faster, it also enables the online upgrading of the camera's firmware. Both the Olympus Studio and Olympus Viewer software, which were developed especially for use with the Olympus E-System camera, feature a number of functions useful in the day-to-day working routine of the professional photographer. One of the highlights is the virtual light box, which works very much like the standard light box used with film. The key difference is that after the photos have been checked, coloured sort marks may be applied.


Olympus presents sunshine LCD for digital cameras


Dennis Hissink : 2004-03-23 14:37:13
Finally it is possible to check shots on a digital camera's integrated display even in direct sunlight without having to huddle over the monitor or crawl under a table to view the shot. This improvement is the result of a new LCD technology. Called sunshine LCD, it was first integrated by Olympus in its CAMEDIA C-8080 WIDE ZOOM and Mju 410 Digital models. The new technology is also found in two cameras receiving their CeBIT première: the C-60ZOOM and the C-460ZOOM del Sol. In less than a decade, digital photography has progressed at such a rate that it is now a leading image capture technology. Without the fascinating ability to check shots immediately and show them to others, its triumphant progress would certainly not have been possible.

With its CAMEDIA C-60 ZOOM, Olympus sets out to seduce design-conscious users who expect versatility to achieve exactly the results they want. The company has already shown how this very demanding target group can be won over with its C-50 ZOOM launched about a year and a half ago. Even today, interest in the camera remains particularly high. That is why this range is now being expanded with the six million pixel C-60 ZOOM, which is destined to make a big impact in the market. Firstly, it has the look. The compact, metal body of brushed aluminium and classic design are sure to turn heads. Secondly, the camera also offers the technical refinement needed to pursue almost every creative impulse.

Its telephoto performance is coupled with high light-gathering power, making it ideal for capturing nature and sporting action.

Optical precision is exceptional, ensuring very sharp and high-contrast images.


Olympus goes 8MP with C-8080 WIDE ZOOM

Over the years, CCD resolutions have shot up, lenses have been greatly improved and the cameras' internal processing systems have seen many optimisations.

The new Sunshine LCD puts an end to this.
