Olympus Europe introduces new Camedia C-150
The Camedia C-150 is the perfect model for those who want to explore the world of digital photography at an extremely affordable price. Featuring several automatic and creative functions and a bright lens (f2.8), this autofocus model guarantees top-quality results while remaining incredibly easy to use. The C-150 also contains a well-laid out multi-language menu with a choice of four languages. Its operation as well as picture framing and viewing is aided by the 1.8 inch LCD monitor, the largest in this camera category. Thanks to its compact design, the new C-150 can be taken almost anywhere to shoot the most spontaneous moments. The Camedia C-150 offers exceptional ease of use for a smooth entry into the world of digital photography. Just insert batteries and xD-Picture Card, then point and shoot. Everything else is built in: automatic systems for exposure, focussing, ISO, white balance and an integrated flash with various modes as well as a high-quality 38 mm AF lens (equivalent to a 35 mm camera). As such, the Camedia C-150 is perfect not only for complete beginners to photography, but also for newcomers to its digital form.

Four scene programs provide the photographer with pre-set shooting parameters for common motifs, such as portraits, self-portraits, night scenes and landscapes. Besides automatic white balance, a selection can be made between four pre-sets for sunlight, overcast conditions, and tungsten and fluorescent lights for true colour reproduction. Other functions, including panorama mode, 2 in 1 shooting, and recording of short movie sequences in QuickTime Motion JPEG format, offer the photographer further innovative shooting options. But the fun does not end there. Photos captured in colour may be changed to black & white or sepia, altering compositions to suit personal tastes or reflect a particular mood. The image rotation function is particularly useful when viewing photos originally taken in the portrait format, on a TV.
Thanks to the USB Auto Connect interface, images are quickly and easily downloaded to a computer. The Camedia Master software delivered with the camera offers users numerous options for further processing their digital photos. Images are saved onto an xD-Picture Card, the ultra-compact media storage card. The Camedia C-150 supports the new EXIF 2.2 standard as well as PIM II, enabling compatible printers to apply the saved data in order to produce optimised results. Featuring 2.0 Megapixel resolution, the Camedia C-150 is an extremely versatile and affordable digital camera which is child's play to operate. The camera is scheduled for market introduction in May 2003.
