The new 3.2 Megapixel Camedia C-350Z from Olympus
Combining great performance, ease of use, appealing design and affordability, the Camedia C-350Z is a great way to enjoy 3.2 Megapixel quality. It boasts a 3x zoom lens and image optimisation functions such as Pixel Mapping and TruePic, as well as several precision photographic modes. While impressing with its practicality and easy operation, the C-350Z also features an elegant new design in a small, compact body, so that users can take it virtually anywhere. The camera's multi-language menu is available in four different languages and the integrated 1.8 inch LCD monitor is particularly convenient for picture framing and viewing. Both inside and out, the C-350Z is a prime example of the Olympus commitment to quality, design and value.
Offering 3.2 Megapixels and a high-performance 3x optical zoom lens, the C-350Z produces stunning prints, even in larger formats. In addition, it has a wealth of features which will appeal to users looking for more than just a point-and-shoot digital camera. Four scene programs (portrait, self-portrait, landscape and night scene) are pre-defined with the optimal settings for each type of shooting, so that users can capture beautiful photos with little effort. And for clear images when using the night-scene mode, the camera automatically engages the noise reduction function. Besides auto white balance, this model offers four preset options for different conditions: daylight, overcast, tungsten and fluorescent light. In macro mode, it is possible to focus on objects as close as only 20cm away.

In order to achieve bold effects without sacrificing ease of use, the Camedia 350Z provides a number of digital editing functions. Shots can be changed to sepia or black and white photos, and a convenient re-sizing option allows reduction of the data's file size. The image rotation feature is particularly useful when viewing photos originally taken in the portrait format, on a TV. To further enhance creative possibilities and practicality for users, the camera also includes: the recording of 15 frame-per-second movie clips in the QuickTime Motion-JPEG format, a panorama and 2-in-1 shooting function, as well as a built-in flash with four flash modes. For storing the data, this model uses the ultra-compact storage medium xD-Picture Card, and a 16 MB card is supplied with the camera.
The Camedia C-350Z supports the new EXIF 2.2 standard as well as PIM II, enabling compatible printers to apply the saved data to produce optimised image printouts. With the USB Auto Connect interface, images are quickly and easily downloaded to a computer. Thanks to the Olympus Camedia Master software that comes with the camera, the user is able to process, edit and archive the photos. Offering a range of impressive features, the C-350Z is perfect both for the experienced photographer and the cost-conscious newcomer to the world of digital zoom photography. This new model is scheduled for release at the beginning of April.
