“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 Stylus 9000 camera provides the amazing optical quality consumers have come to expect from Olympus.

Finally, a pocket sized portable camera with the most powerful zoom lens in the history of the Stylus family! An impressive 10x wide-angle optical zoom lens (28mm-280mm equivalent in 35mm photography) captures wide vistas, large groups of family and friends, and also zooms in on distant objects to make them appear as though they are right in front of you. The new HyperCrystal III LCD, the next generation of Olympus’ LCD technology, displays twice as bright as previous versions so that you can see the details even more clearly even under direct sunlight.
12 Megapixel Olympus Stylus 9000
The Olympus Stylus 9000 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 9000 features the new HyperCrystal III LCD that enhances the brightness of the display by 2x to enhance the anti-glare capability. Colors or details that tend to be washed out in direct sunlight are now displayed even more clearly and vividly.
Olympus Stylus 9000 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.
Beauty Mode on the Olympus Stylus 9000
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 9000 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.
