Olympus FE-180 digital cameras : Olympus introduces the FE-180 camera with 3x zoom that proves that photography is fun. With a no-nonsense “one button, one function” design and a 6.0 million pixel CCD, the Olympus FE-180 makes taking - and printing - even larger size photos a cinch. There’s even an on-screen Help function included, to give easy-to-understand descriptions of camera settings. Life couldn’t be any easier! With this Olympus digital camera, once a shot has been taken you’ll want to show it off. This can be done either on its large 6.4cm LCD screen, or by printing copies to pass around. Prints can be made either at home, by connecting the camera directly to a suitable printer (no fussing around with a PC needed here!), or at countless High Street photo labs. |
Super Macro & Movie setting |
This 3x zoom digital camera delivers true-to-life photos, packed with 6.0 million pixels worth of detail. For familiar shooting situations - such as Sports, Fireworks or Self-portraits - ten scene modes are available, as well as a Super Macro setting that focuses as close as just 5cm. The Olympus FE180 features a Movie setting, with a soundtrack, with the length of the movie clip only limited by the amount of memory available. This can be either the cameras’ internal memory, or optional xD-Picture Cards.
Olympus FE 180 - Help function & Software
Once shots have been taken, the cameras’ large 6.4cm LCD screens allow the results to be viewed and shared with friends right away. And should you ever be at a loss as to what any of the settings actually do, the very same LCD screen is used to display an easy to understand explanation, courtesy of the FE-180’s Help function. For more advanced users who have a PC, the Olympus FE 180 comes with Olympus Master Software which can be used to download, organise, edit, and print photos using a computer. And the update to the Plus version even allows special artistic effects, including 3D and oil painting, to be applied to photos.
Olympus FE180 camera - Price & Availability
This economical model combines ease-of-use with an attractive compact design; the camera uses standard AA batteries which are readily available from supermarkets and High Street stores. With the FE-180, you don’t have to be a technical whiz, or even own a computer to enjoy producing great quality photos. The Olympus FE-180 is a great choice for beginners and all those demanding straightforward fuss-free photography. The FE180 will be available from September 2006 with a price tag of around £115.
