Olympus Stylus Digital 7030 camera technologies
The Olympus Stylus 7030 camera offers a 14-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. AF Tracking technology locks your fast-moving subject in focus, and continuously adjusts focus and brightness. This enables you to keep fast-moving and unpredictable subjects like small children and pets in focus for the perfect shot. There’s even a specially designed AF Tracking "Pet Mode" for animal lovers.

"The new Olympus Stylus Digital 7030 camera is the best of all worlds with video, stunning high resolution stills and a powerful zoom range," said Nadine Clark, product manager, Olympus Imaging America Inc. "In-Camera Creative Filters let your inner creativity shine, while Shadow Adjustment Technology, In-Camera Panorama and AF tracking make it easier than ever to capture exceptional images."
Shoot panaroma photos with the Olympus Stylus 7030
In-Camera Panorama mode captures three images and stitches them together to create one amazing panoramic picture. Simply press the shutter button and slowly pan across a panoramic scene. The second and third images will be captured automatically and stitched together with the first image - resulting in one seamless panorama. To create the ultimate panoramic picture, consumers can use the Olympus [ib] software to stitch up to 10 images together.
Olympus Stylus Digital 7030 incorporates Dual Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization on the Olympus Stylus Digital 7030 combines two technologies - mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization and Digital Image Stabilization - to provide one powerful anti-blur solution for capturing great images whether the photographer or the subject is moving. Olympus’ mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization keeps images sharp by adjusting the image sensor to compensate for camera movement, which often occurs in low-light conditions when shutter speeds are slower. Digital Image Stabilization freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds that prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject. By combining the two technologies, users of the new Olympus Stylus 7030 camera is able to take crystal-clear images in any shooting situation.
Olympus 7030 features Magic Filters
In-camera Art Features debuted on Olympus E-System DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras last year. A similar feature, entitled Magic Filter, has been developed for the new Olympus Stylus 7030. Magic Filter enables the user to enhance and customize images as they’re being captured. This translates into more fun and flexibility as customization is no longer limited to using expensive and time-consuming computer software. The new Magic Filter includes:
• Pop Art - Enhance and saturate colors to create vivid, high-impact pictures that express the joyful, lighthearted feeling of the Pop Art style of the 1960s
• Pin Hole - Reduce the peripheral brightness of an image as though it were shot through a pin hole, connecting the viewer intimately with the subject at the center
• Fish-Eye - Emulate the wide-angle of a fish-eye lens by taking extremely wide, hemispherical images and magnifying the center of the frame
• Drawing - Turn your image into a sketch outline for children to color
