November 7, 2005: Four new high-resolution models have been added to the Olympus range of compact digital still cameras.
Both modes feature precision-designed 3x zoom lenses, multi-mode AF systems and TruePic Turbo image processing and both offer the ability to record images in JPEG and RAW formats. Aperture- and Shutter-priority AE modes are provided in both models, along with live histogram displays that show brightness distribution graphically. Both modes can capture subjects as close as 2 cm with their Super Macro modes and both record movie clips with VGA quality at 30 fps. The SP-350 is priced at $699, while the SP-310 retails for $599.
Its sophisticated AF system offers precision autofocusing as well as spot AF and multi-spot AF – selectable from 143 points – plus predictive AF measurements for back or forward moving subjects. Twenty-one scene modes are provided, along with auto exposure, Aperture and Shutter Priority AE and full manual control. Optional wide-angle and tele are available to extend the camera’s viewing angles and the camera sports an extra-large 6.4cm LCD for framing shots plus a high-resolution electronic viewfinder.
