New Olympus Camedia accessories presented by Olympus Europe
Digital cameras have far progressed from being the computer peripheral devices that they were at the beginning of digital photography. Today these are lifestyle products and professional photographic tools. Olympus' wide range of high-quality, affordable accessories for its Camedia digital cameras underline this fact. Besides ultra-compact memory cards they also include tools to extend the camera's possibilities, like dedicated external flash units and lens converters. The comprehensive range of Olympus digital imaging accessories includes:
The removable xD-Picture Card is ultra-compact, permits fast data transfer and currently available in sizes up to 256MB. The media has been designed to potentially support capacities of up to 8GB in the future. Shooting versatility is enhanced thanks to a unique feature of Olympus xD-Picture Cards: support of the panorama function which is provided by the majority of the Camedia digital cameras.

For transferring data from xD-Picture Card, SmartMedia or even CompactFlash cards to a computer, Olympus presents a variety of solutions. Its two card reader/writers feature a USB interface for easy and high speed data transfer between card and computer. The one, MAUSB-10, takes both xD-Picture Card and SmartMedia while MAUSB-5W accepts SmartMedia and Compact Flash (Type I and II). The MAPC-10 PC card adapter features a 2-in-1 PC Card adapter slot, allowing easy data exchange between xD-Picture Card or SmartMedia and a computer. The MACF-10 Compact Flash card adapter has been exclusively designed for xD-Picture Cards and ensures image data can be quickly and easily transferred from the card to the computer. In addition, this card adapter enables xD-Picture Cards to be inserted into other cameras and multimedia devices with a CompactFlash slot (Type I + II).
For the adventurous digital photographer, Olympus offers three Underwater Cases which are waterproof up to a water pressure equivalent to a depth of 40 metres. Made of durable, high quality polycarbonate, they protect the Camedia cameras from water as well as cushion them from knock and bump on land. Complete control of photo functions, such as zoom and flash mode, is also permitted. So, when the action moves from the beach to the sea, the Olympus digital cameras can be right there to capture it. Shooting underwater with a digital camera offers many benefits over analogue systems. Its LCD monitor makes framing easy and, most importantly, lets the recorded image be checked before surfacing. Back on dry land, of course, the camera just has to be taken out of the case and used as normal.

Thanks to the Underwater Cases, the photographer can concentrate on capturing fascinating images even 40 meters under the waves, secure in the know-ledge the camera is well-protected. The PT-014 has been custom-designed for the C-50Z, the PT-015 holds the C-5050Z and the PT-016 has been tailored to fit the new µ[mju:] Digital models. Olympus opens up new adventures for its camera users. The Underwater Cases are planned for release in spring '03.
Two powerful external flash units have been specially developed for use with Olympus digital cameras. Offering precise TTL flash control or manual operation for full creative flexibility, these flash units are sure to satisfy the most discerning photographers. Delivering great illumination power, the FL-40 has a guide number of 40 at tele settings and 26 for wide-angle shots. The ultra-compact, lightweight and stylish FL-20, with a guide number of max. 20, is ideal for the user on the move. Thanks to the very precise adjustment of its light power (in 1/8EV increments); this flash is ideally suited for use with digital cameras since their CCDs are far more sensitive to light than analogue film. A support bracket plus a range of flash connection cables enable connection of the FL-20 and FL-40 to the various flash contacts used by the different Camedia cameras. With the SLR models Camedia E-20P and E-10 as well as the Camedia C-5050Z and C-750UZ, the flash units can be attached directly without any additional equipment to the camera via the hot-shoe.

The Olympus converter lenses deliver the high optical quality required in digital image capture. All have been especially developed to suit the imaging systems of the compatible Camedia cameras to ensure optimal results without sacrificing quality. When fitted to a compatible camera, the WCON-07 reduces the focal length by a factor of 0.7x for wide-angle coverage, without requiring the aperture to be changed. To get closer to the action, the TCON-17 may be attached, increasing the focal length by a factor of 1.7x. A macro conversion lens is also available.

The BU-70SE can charge one to two AA batteries in under two hours. It holds up to four AA and two AAA batteries, and even allows simultaneous charging of the two types. All the Camedia NiMH battery chargers assure worldwide use thanks to their auto multi-voltage compatibility (100 – 240 volts.). A battery protection system helps gain optimum performance from the high capacity Ni-MH batteries by preventing overcharging of the battery. All chargers come complete with a set of four high-capacity AA rechargeable Ni-MH batteries of 2100mAh to meet the high-power demands of digital cameras. Olympus additionally offers a range of AC adapters for when the photographer is shooting indoors or anywhere near a mains electricity supply. This ensures constant power without having to replace batteries.
The Camedia Master 4.1 software is PC and Mac-compatible and this software makes processing, editing, organising and archiving digital still or video images child's play. Besides the Standard version, there is also a Pro version for the user who wants to get even more out of the images. This includes a number of additional fascinating options. For example, it allows the production - with little effort - of exciting slide-show presentations containing sound effects and music (in the MP3 format). It also enables those without any programming knowledge to set up an online photo gallery by creating HTML photo albums.
