Olympus Stylus Digital 750

The Stylus 750 is equipped with an Olympus aspherical glass 5x zoom lens, 6.4 - 32.0mm (36 - 180mm equivalent in 35mm photography), 6 elements in 4 groups with 4 aspherical lenses. It has a 5.6x digital zoom feature (seamless to 28x.) The maximum aperture is F3.3 (W) / F5.0 (T). The lens retracts into the camera when powered down and is protected by an automatic lens barrier.

The TTL contrast-detect auto focus system covers from 27.6" (0.7m) to infinity in normal mode, Macro mode from 7.9" (0.2m) to infinity in Wide angel, 23.6" (0.6m) to infinity in Telephoto, and from 1.2" - 7.9" (3cm-20cm) in Super Macro mode.

This model features Dual Image Stabilization (CCD-shift IS and Digital IS.)

CCD-shift uses built-in electro-gyro sensors to record camera movement and adjust the CCD image sensor. This ensures that light remains centered on the image sensor to maintain image clarity despite a slight movement on the part of the photographer.

Digital Image Stabilization Mode boosts ISO sensitivity to as high as 1600, allowing for faster shutter speeds in marginal lighting. Thus images remain sharp, free from the blur caused by camera shake and subject movement.

The built in speedlight features Auto, Red-eye reduction, Fill and Forced Off modes. The maximum flash range is 12.5 ft. (3.8m) Wide / 8.9 ft. (2.7m) in Telephoto.

Two types of Red-eye reduction are offered:

  1. Red-eye reduction flash mode ON when taking the picture to reduce the effects of red-eye.
  2. Red-Eye Fix menu function after the photo has been taken so you can easily fix the picture even after it's been shot.

An optional AC power adapter can be connected to the DC IN port. The A/V Out port sends the audio/video to a television set, the video format is selectable for NTSC or PAL standard. Data I/O is via a Mass Storage compliant USB v2.0 port which is also PictBridge compatible for direct printing.

A black rubber O-ring goes around the I/O port door. The camera is "weatherproof and is not damaged by water spray from any direction" as long as the rubber ring is intact and the I/O port door is properly closed.

Still images and movie clips are stored on removable xD-Picture Card flash memory cards. Olympus brand xD-Picture Cards are required to use the camera's built-in Panorama feature. 16MB to 2GB xD-Picture cards are now available.
