The big zoom that fits in your pocket.
Get ready. The STYLUS-9000 will blow you away. Its pocket-friendly body hides an
amazing 10x wide-angle optical zoom, so you can take impressive shots in a
flash. Not to mention advanced technology features like Dual Image
Stabilization. The STYLUS-9000 is the camera that does it all.
12 Megapixels for Superior Image Quality
The Stylus-9000 offers a 12-megapixel image sensor for consistently sharp and
vivid images when producing large-format prints or cropping/enlarging a portion
of an image.
Small Camera, Large LCD
The Stylus-9000 features the new HyperCrystal III LCD that enhances the
brightness of the display by 2x to enhance the anti-glare capability. Colors or
details that tend to be washed out in direct sunlight are now displayed even
more clearly and vividly.
Your Images on HDTV
Gone are the days of friends and family huddling around a camera's LCD to see
the pictures you just snapped. Now, you'll be the hit of the party or any family
function when you proudly display your brilliant images on high-definition
televisions. Simply connect the camera to an HDTV with an HDMI cable, which can
be purchased separately at any consumer electronics store.
Olympus Recommended Button
The new "OR" button makes it easy to activate the cameras' unique features,
including In-Camera Panorama, Shadow Adjustment and Perfect Shot Preview. Simply
press the new OR button to easily access these commonly used features.
New Beauty Mode
Taking beautiful portraits is easy with the new Beauty Mode. It enables you to
soften shadows and smooth wrinkles or blemishes on your subject's face -- all in
the camera and before capture! Additionally, subtle edits can be made
post-capture using the Beauty Fix mode. Choose "Clear Skin" to smooth a person's
complexion, "Dramatic Eye" to slightly emphasize the eyes, and "Sparkle Eye" to
brighten and enhance the contrast of the iris and pupils. You can also apply all
three edits at once. Have fun customizing your brilliant images without a PC and
costly image editing software.
All Olympus digital point-and-shoot cameras accept xD-Picture Card media.
Starting with products available in August 2008, they also accept microSD memory
cards to capture images. The new Stylus cameras offer the flexibility to use
either xD-Picture Card or microSD memory cards, which is just one more advantage
of Olympus point-and-shoot cameras.
Blur-Free Photos Two Ways
Dual Image Stabilization combines two technologies--mechanical Sensor-Shift
Image Stabilization and Digital Image Stabilization--to provide one powerful
anti-blur solution for capturing great images whether the photographer or the
subject is moving. Olympus' mechanical Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization keeps
images sharp by adjusting the image sensor to compensate for camera movement,
which often occurs in low-light conditions when shutter speeds are slower.
Digital Image Stabilization freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and
fast shutter speeds that prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject.
By combining the two technologies, it's simple to take crystal clear images in
any shooting situation.
Intelligent Auto Mode
Tired of changing the settings on your camera every time you're shooting
something different? The new cameras' Intelligent Auto Mode automatically
indentifies what you are shooting (Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro,
Sports) and adjusts settings to capture the best quality results depending on
the situation. First-time users will enjoy this quick and hassle-free feature,
which does the thinking for them and produces incredible images like a pro.
Shadow Adjustment Technology
Shooting outdoors in bright daylight can be tricky because of the extreme
contrast between dark shadowed areas and bright sunlit areas. While the human
eye is capable of detecting the nuances between dark and light and all the
details in between, image sensors traditionally have not been quite as
sensitive. The new Stylus cameras address this challenge head-on with Shadow
Adjustment Technology, which compensates for extreme contrast where the shadow
areas are underexposed and lack visible detail. With this technology, users can
preview and capture images with the same contrast as the naked eye.
Face Detection with Shadow Adjustment Technology
Face Detection tracks faces within the frame and automatically focuses (Face
Detection AF) to optimize exposure (Face Detection AE) for sharp, brilliant
portraits and group shots. Thanks to Shadow Adjustment Technology, which was
adopted from Olympus' digital single lens reflex (DSLR) cameras, portrait shots
taken in backlight situations will capture your subjects' faces with the
appropriate brightness without overexposing the background.
In-Camera Panorama mode captures three images and stitches them together to
create one amazing panoramic picture. Simply press the shutter button and slowly
pan across a panoramic scene. The second and third images will be captured
automatically and stitched together with the first image -- resulting in one
seamless panorama. To create the ultimate panoramic picture, consumers can use
the Olympus Master Software 2 to stitch up to 10 images together.
Perfect Shot Preview
Perfect Shot Preview enables you to preview and select various photographic
effects on a live, multi-window screen before snapping the shot. Seeing the
results before capturing the image ensures users are getting the shots they
want. It is an ideal way for novice users to learn about the effects of
different photography techniques, such as zoom, exposure compensation, white
balance and metering.
Perfect Fix In-Camera Editing
The Stylus-9000 offers Red-Eye Fix and Shadow Adjustment Edit, in-camera editing
features such as resizing, cropping and saturation adjustments, enabling users
to edit photos right in the camera. With the Perfect Fix function, multiple
editing features can be applied at once.
TruePic III Image Processor
The Stylus-9000 features Olympus' exclusive TruePic III image processor
developed for the demanding performance of digital SLR (single lens reflex)
cameras. Olympus' enhanced TruePic III Image Processor produces crystal clear
photos using all the pixel information for each image to deliver superior
picture quality with more accurate colors, true-to-life flesh tones and faster
processing speeds. TruePic III also captures crisp, clear images at high ISO
settings, which are traditionally associated with increasing image noise or
producing grainy photos.
