OlympusOlympus Mju 550WP digital camera : Olympus, the company that introduced shockproof / waterproof cameras to mass consumers in 2006, announces the new Mju 550WP. Thanks to waterproofing technology adopted from Olympus’ Mju Tough series cameras, the new Mju waterproof camera is optimized for consumers who want to take stunning images of their aquatic adventures, making it the perfect pool companion. “In a recent study of consumers considering the purchase of a new digital camera, they overwhelmingly selected weatherproofing as a desired feature,” said Tomoko Matsunaga, product manager, Olympus Imaging America Inc.

Olympus Mju 550WP camera technologies
Tomoko Matsunaga continued: “The new Olympus Mju 550WP camera borrows technology that was originally developed for our Mju Tough cameras, and meets the needs of those consumers who want to take pictures under water or in the rain without paying for other rugged features they may not need.”

Olympus Mju 550WP Waterproof camera
Olympus continues to develop new products that encourage consumers to capture brilliant images in some of the world’s most challenging environments and situations. The Olympus Mju 550WP can go where other cameras fear to tread and can perform as well under water as it does on land because of its slim lightweight, aluminum exterior that is sealed from the elements by interior rubber gaskets and O-rings. The Olympus 550WP can be submerged up to 10 feet under water, and the inclusion of an underwater scene mode makes it ideal for taking photos while snorkeling, in the pool, or riding the waterslide.

In or out of the water, you won’t miss the shot thanks to Intelligent Auto Mode. It automatically identifies what you are shooting (i.e. Portrait, Night + Portrait, Landscape, Macro and Sports) and adjusts the camera’s settings to capture the best quality results. First-time users can dive into this quick and hassle-free feature that does the thinking for them and produces incredible images.

Olympus Mju 550 WP Face Detection technology
Portrait and group shots make family reunions live beyond the short event, and with Face Detection you’ll capture even the shyest relatives. The new camera detects up to three faces within the frame and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure to capture sharp, brilliant portraits and group shots. With the waterproof Olympus Mju 550WP, you’ll capture amazing photos even if your next family reunion is at a water park!

Olympus xD-Picture card and microSD memory card support
All Olympus digital point-and-shoot cameras accept xD-Picture Card media. Starting with products available in August 2008, they also accept microSD memory cards to capture images. The Mju 550WP offers the flexibility to use either xD-Picture Card or microSD memory cards, which is just one more advantage of Olympus point-and-shoot cameras.

Capturing underwater photos with the Olympus Mju 550WP
The fast motion of moving sea life or paddling swimmers could easily cause blurry images. Digital Image Stabilization freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to help prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject, resulting in crystal-clear snaps. While it can’t remove the red from your eyes caused by too much chlorine in the water, the Olympus Mju 550WP offers Red-Eye Fix as well as other in-camera editing features such as Shadow Adjustment Edit, resizing and cropping, so you can edit photos right in the camera. With the Perfect Fix function, multiple editing features can be applied at once, so what you see on the 2.5-inch LCD will look amazing when you show it to your friends in the hot tub.

Olympus also offers a number of optional accessories for the Mju 550WP so shooting in the water can be more fun and exciting. Highly visible floating wrist straps free users’ hands when swimming or chasing the next big wave. A stylish silicone skin protects the camera from scratches.
