The Stylus 750 digital is a point-and-shoot model offering a number of pioneering technologies such as Dual Image Stabilization, Bright Capture Technology and TruePic TURBO™ as well as a powerful 5x Optical Zoom that tucks away into a streamlined metal, All-Weather body design.
Other powerful features include a 7.1-megapixel CCD image sensor that delivers high-quality images that are consistently sharp and vivid even when printed in large-formats - up to poster sizes as large as 16 x 20 inches. A large and bright 2.5-inch LCD that makes it easier to see images clearly both when shooting and sharing photos with friends, without having to download the images to a computer.
The exclusive TruePic TURBO™ Image Processor enhances image quality and delivers faster overall processing speeds for rapid start-up, shutter release and playback. TruePic TURBOTM enables the Stylus 750 to capture information from all 7.1 million pixels with pixel "micro- smoothing" that delivers clearer and more color-accurate photos. The fast start-up of less than one second and nearly instant shutter release time ensures a speedy response so your camera is always ready to take great pictures.
Olympus has incorporated new lens technology into the Stylus 750 that enables the 5x optical zoom lens (36mm - 180mm, f3.3 - f 5.0 equivalent in 35mm photography) to bring the action five times closer in a less than 1-inch thick body - 3.8 inch wide x 2.1 inch high x 0.96 inch deep. Olympus lenses are known worldwide for producing sharp high-quality images. This is achieved through a number of key technologies, such as Olympus' high-refractive-index lens elements and newly developed dual super aspherical lens elements.
The Stylus 750 features an advanced combination of mechanical CCD-shift Image Stabilization and Digital Image Stabilization. CCD-shift Image Stabilization 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 and shutter speed so that images remain crisp and clear - free from the blur caused by moving subjects. The combination of the two Image Stabilization Technologies ensures the best image clarity in virtually any shooting environment.
With the Help Guide function, each of the camera's features is easily accessible even to novice users. By simply rotating the mode dial to the Guide position, users can access brief descriptions of each of the camera's functions and scene modes. An improved auto-set Shooting Guide provides users with an explanation of which features to use in a given situation, and then sets the camera automatically for the selected feature in the Guide.
Typically, water and photography are a bad combination, limiting outdoor photography options
when rain, snow or sleet are involved. However, the compact, All-Weather Stylus 750 can go
virtually anywhere. The metal body construction is durable and lightweight with rubber gaskets
throughout the interior to ensure that rain, dust and snow won't get in the way of great photos.
