Three New Olympus Stylus Pocket Cameras - 7040, 7030 & 5010

'
New Olympus Stylus-7040 Pocket Digital Camera Olympus has announced three new 14-megapixel Stylus pocket digital cameras. The Olympus Stylus-7040, Olympus Stylus-7030 and Olympus Stylus-5010 all have wide-angle zoom lenses - the Stylus-7040 and Stylus-7030 have a 7x (28-196mm equivalent) zoom lens and the Stylus-5010 has an even wider 26-130mm (equivalent) 5x zoom lens. All three cameras have Dual Image Stabilization, AF Tracking auto focus, Shadow Adjust Technology, In-Camera Panorama mode and new Olympus Magic Filter in-camera creative filters - Pin Hole, Pop Art, Fish-Eye, and Drawing. They also have a new GUI (graphical user interface) and come with image management software that includes Geotagging and Face Recognition features for better searching and organization. The Stylus-7040 and Stylus-5010 also have 720p HD video modes and an HDMI interface so you can share movies and photos on your HD TV.



It’s easy to overlook in the press release, but the biggest surprise is the new Olympus Stylus cameras are all SD-card compatible. For those who’ve used Olympus compact cameras in the past and had to use the tiny, slow xD Picture cards, you know this is great news. SD cards are much easier to find and have noticeably better performance. I’m really pleased to note this change.


The Olympus Stylus-7040, Olympus Stylus-7030 and Olympus Stylus-5010 come in a range of colors and should be in stores in February of 2010. Suggested retail on the Stylus-7040 is $249.95 and the Stylus-7030 and Stylus-5010 are both priced at $199.95.
