Olympus Imaging India launched eight new cameras across its Olympus Stylus brand in Mumbai today. With the launch of the cameras with varying capabilities across various price ranges, the company says that it is looking to define this newly emerging sector in imaging in India.
Olympus launched a whole range of new compact cameras
Finally, Olympus announced two compact cameras in the X series – the XZ-2 and the XZ-10. The XZ-2 is Olympus’ flagship model, boasting a bright f1.8-2.5, large-diameter, 4x optical zoom i.Zuiko digital lens, along with the world's first hybrid control ring.
With the combination of the newly developed 1/1.7 type back-illuminated CMOS sensor on the large-diameter lens and the SLR image processing engine TruePic VI, the XZ-2 achieves the highest image quality of any Olympus compact digital camera, claims the company. The back-illuminated CMOS sensor was newly developed to take advantage of the bright f2.5 setting at the telephoto end of the lens, says the company. The 1/1.7 type sensor is larger than the sensors of most compact digital cameras, according to Olympus, providing an advantage in image quality.
The XZ-10, on the other hand, comes with a high speed, high-quality i.Zuiko Digital 5x optical zoom lens and functions such as the new Photo Story for expanding photographic expressions. The control ring and Touch AF Shutter made popular on the XZ-2 are also available on the XZ-10.
The S and V series of compact cameras will be available immediately, the company says, while the T and X series will take a while to hit the shelves. Here is the price list for th newest Olympus cameras:
