With 7.1 million pixels, even the finest aspects of an image are captured in minute detail. The Olympus C-7070 has a bright 1:2.8-4.8, high-precision lens. Comprised of eight elements arranged in seven groups, it incorporates two aspherical lenses and one low-refractive-index ED (Extra-low Dispersion) element. The 4x zooming range extends to 110mm from an ultra-wide-angle starting point of just 27mm (35mm camera equivalents). The Olympus C-7070 is therefore ideally suited for architects, interior designers and any others requiring an extremely wide angle of view. Due to use of a lens system tailor-made for digital photography and featuring nearly telecentric optics, cornershading at wide viewing angles is not an issue. The Olympus C-7070 is even geared for extreme close-ups. From just 3cm away, this model can fill a frame with a subject of just 20.7 x 27.8mm in Super Macro mode.|
