Talk about high resolution, the STYLUS-7010 has 12 million pixels at its disposal for better-than-terrific image quality. Turn prints into posters without sacrificing the smallest detail.
The 7x wide-angle optical zoom not only lets you shoot like a pro without the need for bulky accessories like long lenses and unwieldy tripods, but also lets you get big, smiling groups into a single shot with ease.
Dual Image Stabilization. Using built-in sensors to record camera movement and adjust the CCD image sensor, this function ensures that images remain crisp and clear—in short, free from the blur caused by movement from you our your subject.
AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.
A Magic Filter gives your photos a distinct look by applying one of three special artistic effects including Pop Art, Fish Eye and Pin Hole.
Advanced Face Detection automatically locks onto as many as 16 faces in large portrait shots and optimizes focus for brilliant portraits.
The STYLUS-7010 allows you to capture movies with sound with its VGA Movie feature, which effectively puts you in the director's chair without ever having to go to film school.
YouTube™, here we come. The STYLUS-7010 easily lets you upload movies and images using Olympus Master™ 2 Software.
A TruPic III Image Processor, first developed for professional digital SLRs, knows precisely how to deliver true-to-life color, the sharpest details, and less noise.
Shadow Adjustment Technology brings out more details in shadows. It helps capture scenes exactly as you see them, even in difficult lighting situations, such as backlit shots.
See it all—before everyone else—with an amazingly sharp and ultra bright 2.7-inch Hyper-Crystal II LCD, the next-generation of Olympus LCD technology. HyperCrystal II displays twice as bright as previous versions so that you can see the details even more clearly even under direct sunlight.
Select from 23 shooting modes, including such distinct choices as a Beauty Mode, specifically designed to take beautiful portraits.
