“Olympus has proven that ultra-compact and ultra-zoom can co-exist in an attractive pocket point-and-shoot camera,” said Tomoko Matsunaga, product manager, Olympus Imaging America Inc. “Superior images start with superior optics, and the new Mju 7000 camera provides the amazing optical quality consumers have come to expect from Olympus. The Stylus cameras’ optical strength is matched by technologies that are designed to enable consumers to capture it all.”

A 3-inch HyperCrystal II LCD screen and a High-Definition (HD) output make it the ideal premium pocket camera for viewing images in the camera or on an HDTV.

The Olympus Stylus 7000 offers a 12-megapixel image sensor enabling consumers to achieve consistently sharp and vivid images when producing large-format prints or cropping/enlarging a portion of an image. The Olympus Stylus 7000 offers a large 3-inch HyperCrystal II LCD screen, which reproduces true colors with a dynamic contrast ratio of more than 180 percent and a color reproduction performance of more than 160 percent compared to HyperCrystal LCD.
Beauty Mode on the Olympus Stylus 7000
Taking beautiful portraits is easy with the new Beauty Mode. It enables you to soften shadows and smooth wrinkles or blemishes on your subject’s face - all in the camera and before capture! Additionally, subtle edits can be made post-capture using the Beauty Fix mode. Choose “Clear Skin” to smooth a person’s complexion, “Dramatic Eye” to slightly emphasize the eyes, and “Sparkle Eye” to brighten and enhance the contrast of the iris and pupils. You can also apply all three edits at once. Have fun customizing your brilliant images without a PC and costly image editing software.
Olympus Stylus 7000 offers HDTV support
Gone are the days of friends and family huddling around a camera’s LCD to see the pictures you just snapped. Now, you’ll be the hit of the party or any family function when you proudly display your brilliant images on high-definition televisions. Simply connect the camera to an HDTV with an HDMI cable, which can be purchased separately at any consumer electronics store. The new “OR” button makes it easy to activate the cameras’ unique features, including In-Camera Panorama, Shadow Adjustment and Perfect Shot Preview. Simply press the new OR button to easily access these commonly used features.
Olympus Stylus 7000 memory support
All Olympus digital point-and-shoot cameras accept xD-Picture Card media. Starting with products available in August 2008, they also accept microSD memory cards to capture images. The new Olympus Stylus cameras offer the flexibility to use either xD-Picture Card or microSD memory cards, which is just one more advantage of Olympus point-and-shoot cameras.
