LINEAR PCM RECORDING
Linear PCM Recording, an audio technology pioneered by Olympus for professional voice recorders, records your videos with high-definition audio for optimal playback results.
An LED Illuminator is like a mini-flashlight on the front of the camera to enhance focus and exposure for macro shooting. The LED illuminator also works in conjunction with the flash to help illuminate your subject in low-light conditions.
ENHANCED INTELLIGENT AUTO
Automatically identifies the scene you?re shooting - up to 30 different scene including Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro or Sports - and adjusts the settings for ideal results.
28 SCENE MODES
Select from scene modes like Beach & Snow, Night Scene, Sport and Landscape and the camera automatically adjusts the settings for optimal results.
ADVANCED SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY
Automatically compensates for shadowed areas to minimize the differences in highlight and lowlight areas resulting in more uniform expsure across the image. When used together with iAuto or Face Detection, the subject's face is shot with optimal exposure settings so that the face can be recorded clearly even under strong back light conditions. The TruePic VI image processor further reduces noise in the shadowy areas allowing for even better backlight adjustment.
Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.
Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!
Look like a star! Let the camera soften shadows and smooth wrinkles and blemishes on your subject's face with Beauty Mode. Or, digitally apply enhancements to your portraits like eyeshadow, whitening teeth and lifting cheek bones with Beauty Make-Up mode.
