Click to take a QTVR tour of the C-700UZ
Fully programmable, the C-700 UltraZoom is versatile enough to match any user's comfort level and application. In Programmed Auto mode, the camera offers point-and-shoot simplicity for flawless picture taking in average situations. For unique or difficult to shoot conditions, the C-700 UltraZoom offers greater control with aperture priority (Wide: f2.8 - f8.0, Tele: f3.5 - f8.0), shutter priority (1/2 - 1/1,000 sec.), full manual operation and a host of special programs including Night Scene, Sports Action, Portrait and Landscape modes. Multiple ISO settings from 100 to 800 allow users to capture sharp images even in low light conditions.
The C-700 UltraZoom is more than a still image digital camera. A QuickTime Movie mode enables users to capture up to 62 seconds of full motion video with sound at 15 frames per second on an 8MB SmartMedia card, making it the perfect choice for users producing webcasts and e-mailing short videos. The C-700 UltraZoom also records up to four seconds of audio captioning for each still image.
Whether capturing still pictures or full motion video, every image is processed through the C-700 UltraZoom's 2.11-megapixel CCD, and displayed on a 1.5-inch, 113,000-pixel color TFT LCD monitor. As a result, the C-700 UltraZoom delivers photo-quality images up to 8" x 10" when image data is downloaded to a computer and output on a photo-quality printer. For fast and simple downloading, the C-700 UltraZoom features USB AutoConnect technology. The Olympus USB AutoConnect feature allows users to plug the camera directly into any USB-configured computer. No drivers or additional software are required for PCs running the latest operating systems including Windows® 2000, Windows Me and Mac OS 8.6 and higher-these computers will mount and recognize the C-700 UltraZoom automatically.
The Camedia C-700 is available now and ships with an 8MB SmartMedia, 2 CR-V3 AA Lithium Battery Pack, CAMEDIA Master Software, Win/Mac USB Cable, video cable, manual, carrying strap, lens cap and retainer cord.
Even though the C-700UZ has a big 10x zoom lens, the camera is very compact, shown here with the pocket-size Fuji FinePix 6800 Zoom.
