OlympusOlympus FE-5500 digital camera introduction : It's the designer digital camera featuring the attention-grabbing twisting lens that can easily be taken everywhere. With the Olympus FE-5500, photographers needn't miss a shot. Its slim-line dimensions and low weight make it effortless to carry around. 5.0 million pixels and a precision 3x optical zoom (equivalent to 35-105mm), guarantee impressive results in full detail. For added flexibility, total magnification power can be increased to 12x by invoking the digital zoom. To make taking great photos even easier, a range of pre-defined scene programmes covering many common shooting situations can be chosen, such as Sports, Indoor and Landscape.
Olympus FE-5500 digital camera introductionThe images can be viewed on the large 5.1cm LCD monitor.

Slim, good looks with twisting lens
At just 24.3mm thin and matched with an attractive price, the slim Olympus FE-5500 is on the pulse of consumer demand. It offers the convenience of ultra-compact dimensions and light weight for easy mobility, yet it also boasts high performance attributes that ensure excellent results in all manner of situations. Moreover, one of this model's most prominent features is its attention-grabbing looks. Besides slim-line contours, this minimalist camera’s distinctive appearance is also thanks to the new twisting lens design.

Easy shooting in 5.0 million pixel quality
Inside, the high quality optical system contains three aspherical lens elements and provides 3x zoom power (equivalent to 35-105mm) 1:2.8-4.8, allowing far away subjects to be brought in considerably closer. No matter which zoom factor is selected, images will have plenty of detail and definition to really come alive. A resolution of 5.0 million pixels always ensures photos of outstanding fidelity.

A range of scene programmes are on hand to help the user master many photographic situations. From self portraits and indoor shots to landscapes and sports photography, the camera automatically selects the optimal parameters for the selected scene programme to return picture-perfect results. These can then be checked and presented on the 5.1cm LCD monitor. Movie recording with sound and macro modes give the Olympus FE-5500 digital camera even more areas of application.

Extensive versatility
Images and movies can be saved to the 14MB internal memory. Naturally, for greater storage requirements, a slot for xD-Picture Cards is incorporated. This removable memory media is currently available in various sizes up to a maximum capacity of 1GB. In addition, by using Olympus xD-Picture Cards, photographers can enjoy the added benefit of panorama shooting functionality.

When it's time to print results, it couldn't be easier. Compatibility with PictBridge means images can be printed directly on any printer supporting the standard, such as the Olympus P-10 printer, without the need for a PC.

Available from May 2005, the Olympus FE-5500 meets the demand for an affordable, slim digital camera with high resolution. It comes with a rechargeable Li-Ion battery and charger, USB cable, AV cable and the easy-to-use Olympus Master 1.2 software for managing and editing images on the computer.
