Weighing just six ounces, the camera is about the size of a cellular phone and just as portable. A 1.5-inch color LCD monitor serves as both a high resolution viewfinder, (an optical viewfinder is also provided), as well as the camera's menu control panel. The Brio D-100 offers a fast start-up time of less than one second, and is as easy to use as a conventional 35mm camera. Its pocketable design allows users to take high quality digital pictures anyplace, anytime, literally on a moment's notice. The Brio D-100's Burst Mode, a feature usually found on larger, more expensive cameras, shoots two frames per second
Compact and stylish, the Brio D-100 is an excellent choice for first-time digital camera users seeking high quality images and simple operation. To make downloading simple, the Brio D-100 features USB AutoConnect technology, plug the camera directly into any USB- configured computer. No drivers or additional software are required for PCs running Windows® 2000, Windows Me and Mac OS™ 8.6 and higher, these computers will mount and recognize the Brio D-100 automatically. Additionally, users may print images directly to any of the Olympus family of P Series dye sublimation printers by inserting the SmartMedia card into the printer's card slot. The Brio D-100 supports the Digital Print Order Format (DPOF) standard for adding data to images and tagging specific photographs to print to DPOF-compatible printers.
Available in May 2001, the Brio D-100 ships with an 8MB SmartMedia card, USB cable, video output cable, Olympus Camedia Master software, user guide, strap, and CR-V3 Lithium battery pack. The camera can also be powered by two AA alkaline or Ni-MH batteries.
