SP-320 - Histogram function & Video - A histogram function enables exposure information to be displayed in shooting mode on the large 6.4cm LCD to give expert photographers the opportunity to fine-tune their shots for perfect results. Movie enthusiasts will cherish the possibility of capturing action with sound in VGA quality at 30fps. And for extra versatility, a wide range of optional accessories is available, including lens converters and an underwater case.
Olympus SP320 camera - Large LCD display - 7.1 million pixels in combination with a precision 3x zoom lens (1:2.8-4.9, equivalent to 38-114mm on a 35mm camera) let clear images be captured in stunning detail. Focusing options range from regular iESP autofocus, spot AF and multi-spot AF - selectable from 143 points - right through to manual focusing for setting personalised accents. The viewing of results is a pleasure on the large LCD featuring an impressive 6.4cm diagonal.

Olympus SP 320 - Manual control - While automatic shooting is convenient and helpful, no dedicated photographer wants to do without manual control. That's why the Olympus SP 320 offers aperture priority, shutter priority and full manual exposure modes too. Users therefore are sure to have the freedom to satisfy their creative desires and compose images with their personalised signature. Furthermore, to help ascertain the optimal camera settings, a histogram function is available to provide real-time exposure information. In addition, 25 scene modes are on hand for most shooting situations. And the high maximum ISO setting of 800 lets photographers capture the spirit of the night without using the flash.
Olympus SP320 - Macro mode & Conversion lens - Super Macro mode will thrill fans of extreme close-up photography, allowing image capture from as little as 2cm. Of course a movie recording option is also among the many photographic possibilities the Olympus SP320 has to offer. Action is captured with sound in VGA quality at 30fps and recording length is only limited by available memory capacity. Extending the scope of the camera even further, Olympus offers the TCON-17F conversion lens (requires use of CLA-09 lens adapter) for an amazing 193mm tele equivalent performance. Moreover, photographers can shoot in up to 40m depth using the optionally-available underwater case.
SP-320 memory - Olympus High Speed xD-Picture Card - On top of the 25MB internal memory, the SP-320 features an xD-Picture Card slot. Naturally, the new Olympus High Speed xD-Picture Cards may be used which offer data transfer rates 2-3 times faster than conventional cards. Increasing flexibility, especially for subsequent editing on the PC, images can be stored in either JPEG or RAW formats. Thanks to USB Hi-Speed AutoConnect compatibility, downloading photos is also a swift affair and PictBridge compatibility means that printing is fast and easy too. Any printer adhering to the standard - such as the Olympus P-11 which takes just 33 sec. per 10x15cm print - allows printing without the need for a PC.
