Like the Brio D-100, the Brio Zoom D-150 offers a 1.5-inch, 118k-pixel color LCD monitor that serves as a high- resolution viewfinder, the camera's playback screen and menu control panel. All mode settings and image viewing functions have been condensed into this single display, contributing to the Brio Zoom D-150's pocketable design. Standard icons representing multiple flash modes, image resolution settings, exposure adjustments and playback/viewing modes are accessed through one-touch buttons and an easy to use jog dial, with choices displayed on the LCD panel and selected using simple up, down, left and right arrow keys. The versatile LCD monitor allows users to display four or nine images, and offers a 2X Zoom Inspection mode to view and scroll across enlarged single frames during playback.
The Brio D-150 Zoom is equipped with a standard 5.0mm - 15.0mm lens, delivering the equivalent of 38mm - 114mm zoom range on 35mm cameras. Its digital telephoto capabilities expand the camera's effective zoom range to a maximum of 228mm, allowing users to capture crisp, digital images out of range of traditional 3X zoom film cameras. To ensure the best possible image quality, the Brio Zoom D-150 is equipped with a 1.3-megapixel interlaced RGB CCD. Its maximum resolution of 1280 x 960 pixels produces photo-quality prints up to 4" x 6". The camera is also capable of capturing images with smaller file sizes at a reduced 640 x 480 resolution factor, perfect for sending pictures via e-mail and posting on the web. The D-150 Zoom utilizes Olympus' TruePic™ technology, so it uses all the captured pixel information to create the image no matter the output size or resolution setting.
Once captured, images may be viewed, erased or stored on removable SmartMedia™ cards. The Brio Zoom D-150 ships with one 8MB card standard, providing ample capacity to store up to 82 images in SQ mode. Additional SmartMedia cards, available in 16, 32, 64 and 128MB increments, deliver virtually unlimited, reusable image storage capacity.
