OlympusI just returned home from my visit to the office of Olympus Netherlands, took place behind my pc and got this announcement fresh in the mailbox. What a timing.. Well, Olympus will support PictBridge in future cameras and has made a start with the update of the two Digital Mju (Stylus) cameras, the C-750, C-740 and the C-350 (Europe name) cameras. At this moment all I know is that C-750 and the C-740 will turn into the C-755 and the C-745. The update of the C-350 will now support PictBridge. The camera features a 3.2 Megapixels CCD and 3x optical zoom. On the back of the camera is a 1.8-inch LCD display which is still remarkable for this kind of camera, most of them have 1.6-inch or smaller.
Olympus Japan updates 5 cameras with PictBridgeBecause this model supports the PictBridge standard, it can be connected directly to a printer, like the new Olympus P-10 printer. The two updated versions of the Digital Mju (Stylus) cameras are equipped with a 3.2 and a 4 Megapixels CCD. The Digital MJU 300 and MJU 400 will probably change their number for the European market and the US market, but at this moment I got no further information. Of course, these two updated versions are also supporting the PictBridge standard.

Last but not least, the C-745 and C-755 cameras. These two models are the updated versions of the C-740 and C-750 cameras. The C-745 still has a 10x optical zoom lens and features a 3.2 Megapixels CCD, the C-755 has also not changed in its powerful zoom range of 10x optical zoom and the 4 Megapixels resolution. A new function within the Olympus C-755 is the Super Zoom mode. When this feature is activated it will be possible to zoom more then 10x, without losing too much pixels. The explanation of this function is not completely clear to me, but it seems that the quality of the end result on using Super Zoom is equal to 14x optical zoom and the image quality will be minimal 2 Megapixels. In other words, some kind of smart digital zoom without the loss of too much quality. Both new models are also equipped with ED glass to reduce chromatic aberration. These two new models are also supporting the PictBridge standard. The C-755 camera will also be available in black, but the quantity is only a 10,000 units (in Japan?).

As soon as there is some more information available we will update this article.
