Olympus Tough 8010 image browsing software
With the new features, it’s never been so easy to keep track of the latest tricks on the half-pipe or a climb to the mountain top. A versatile 5x wide optical zoom (28-140mm) ensures great group photos or close-ups of distant subjects. In addition, every move can be recorded with the HD movie function or integrated into a slideshow and then viewed comfortably on a TV set connected via HDMI. And by using Photo Surfing to select and look at pictures of anything from an afternoon on the sailboat to a child’s birthday, there’s no longer any need to tediously click through the whole library. This is possible thanks to Olympus’ [ib] technology. The new image browsing software allows pictures to be tagged by face with Face Recognition technology, by place (with GPS) or by event. The tagged images can then be surfed through on the camera’s LCD, on a computer or a television.
