OlympusAnother ultra-compact at the front; Olympus Japan unveils the Camedia AZ-1. This new stylish designed model features an internal 3x optical zoom lens like we have seen before with the DiMAGE X series, or like the latest Sony DSC-T11 we informed you about some days ago. The Camedia AZ-1 comes with the world's first Mobile ASV liquid crystal display which results in a very wide angle of view of almost 160?. This 2.5-inch large display has a resolution of 215,000 pixels and due to the new Mobile ASV LCD technology the contrast is about 3x higher than the ordinary displays. Another new feature is the built-in photo album function allowing users to store their favourite photos into a virtual album and save them on the memory card.
The large display makes the circle round and let the user enjoy their emotion again.

The metal housing of the Camedia AZ-1 measures 94x67x22.9mm and weighs only 160 g. The camera comes along with the popular cradle for uploading the images, charging the Li-Ion battery of viewing the images on a television set. Beside looking good, the new Camedia improved the way of handling the several functions of the camera. There are 23 built-in scenes to choose from, each of them giving a simple description on the display of the meaning of the scene. Resolution settings are not described in pixels, but in M, like 1M, 2M or 3M. The effective resolution of the camera is 3.2 Megapixels. Furthermore the new Camedia AZ-1 supports PictBridge. PictBridge is the worldwide direct printing standard that allows any PictBridge-compatible printer to print directly from any PictBridge-compatible digital camera. So direct printing from the camera is possible, you can check which image you want to print on the LCD monitor of the Camedia AZ-1.

The new Camedia AZ-1 has been introduced in Japan and there is no indication whether this camera will appear on the European or American market. As soon as we learn more about any availability outside the Japanese market we will inform you right away.
