Olympus Camedia C315 Zoom digital camera introduction : The new Olympus C315 Zoom is a stylish and attractively priced camera. Building on the success of its predecessor the C310 Zoom, pronounced ?Best Digital Budget Compact Camera’ by TIPA in 2004, the new Olympus C-315 Zoom boasts the same special blend of design, performance, handling and affordability. It’s resolution has also been significantly increased to 5.1 million pixels to provide exceptional picture quality but what won’t be changing is the camera’s great value for money. Available from the end of July, the Olympus C315 Zoom comes highly recommended for first-time digital camera buyers and all those who are budget conscious yet still demand high-quality results.|
Camedia C315 - Entry-level camera|
The Olympus C315 Zoom is designed to make digital photography accessible and affordable for ambitious beginners. Its predecessor’s winning combination of ease-of-use and high-quality has now been crowned with the additional advantage of 5.1 million pixels, enabling large print-outs and detailed image cropping. The new resolution complements other features, such as a bright 2.8x optical zoom lens, together with the 3.5x digital zoom brilliant close-ups are possible.
Olympus C-315 Zoom - Super macro mode
The C-315Z also offers a Super Macro mode, enabling successful shots from as close as 2cm from the subject. Five automatic scene programmes are available to help compose the best image and provide added convenience and for those valuing even greater versatility, a movie recording function has been added so movies can be recorded and conveniently reviewed on the camera’s integrated 4.6cm LCD.
Olympus C315Z - PictBridge and ImageLink
As you would expect from a user-friendly camera, the C-315 Zoom supports PictBridge, removing the need for a PC to print from the camera. Just connect straight to a compatible printer, such as the Olympus P-10 printer, to instantly print glossy photographs. Alternatively, effortless, one-touch printing is also possible with printers that incorporate ImageLink print system. Images are saved onto removable xD memory cards (a 16MB card is supplied with the camera but these small, fast and durable cards are now available in capacities of up to 1GB). For users without printer access or those on the move, xD cards can also easily be taken to any photo dealer to obtain first-class prints.
