Olympus FE 160 digital camera : Developed with a clear focus on ease of use, the Olympus FE-160 provides trouble-free operation without sacrificing quality. A true out-of-the-box experience, most users will be pointing and shooting within minutes to get results that will impress with their stunning vibrancy. And thanks to an image resolution of 6.0 million pixels, pictures come alive with exceptional definition and realism. The camera's lightweight, slim metal body exudes style and is compact enough to be taken along everywhere. At 6.4cm, the large LCD makes taking photos and viewing the results both fun and easy. Most of all, beginners will really appreciate the camera controls that are virtually self-explanatory.|
Olympus FE-160 - 2.5 inch LCD|
The attractively-priced FE-160 is the perfect solution for all beginners to digital photography and snap-shooters alike. Boasting 6.0 million pixels, the Olympus FE 160 delivers extraordinarily detailed pictures in any given situation. Its precision 2.8x optical zoom lens lets subjects be brought in close, with an additional 4x digital zoom boosting magnification power even further. And true to the motto "the more you see the better", the big 6.4cm LCD with 230,000 pixels makes framing compositions a cinch and ensures viewing the results is a real joy too.
Olympus FE 160 camera - Control and Super macro
Even complete beginners will be amazed by the straightforward camera controls, with most functions being accessible via a single button. Moreover, the menu employs easy-to-understand symbols, which are supported by quick and easy explanations so that shooting in just about any situation becomes child's play. Five different scene modes including Portrait, Landscape and Night Scene are on hand to ensure the optimal camera settings are automatically selected to suit the corresponding conditions and therefore return perfect images. In addition, the Super Macro mode offers the option of extreme close-up photography from as little as just 6cm away. The capture of movies with sound is possible too, with recording right up to the limit of available memory capacity.
Olympus FE160 digital camera - Internal memory
Naturally, the 9MB of internal memory can be simply and inexpensively upgraded via the purchase of xD-Picture Cards. The latest generation of Olympus xD-Picture Cards now offers data transfer rates 2-3 times faster than before and also lets various art and 3D functions be applied to recorded images.
Olympus FE 160 camera - Software and Availability
The new Olympus FE160 digital camera includes a free version of the user-friendly Olympus Master Software. With this application, editing images on the PC is just as much fun as shooting them. Easy downloading, organising and printing are some of the software's handy functions. And to make sure shooting enjoyment lasts and lasts, both cameras now include the new, longer-lasting LI-42B rechargeable battery. Providing quality results that are a breeze to produce, the attractively-designed and compact Olympus FE-160 will be available from March 2006 (in some regions the FE-160 may only be available at selected retailers).
