Olympus Intros 4 Megapixel Camera

D-40 offers 2.8x optical zoom (September 04, 2001)
Olympus says it will ship a new 4 megapixel camera in October. The company touts the new model as the smallest 4 megapixel camera on the market, measuring 3.4 inches x 2.7 inches x 1.7 inches. It can also interpolate images up to 7 megapixels.

The D-40 Zoom incorporates a new 2.8x optical zoom lens, matched to a 4 Megapixel effective image area for sharp, detailed photographs. It also features Olympus' new Enhanced Color Management system, a technology that customizes color settings for each of its unique shooting modes. According to Olympus, ECM delivers better skin tones in portraits, truer blue skies and greener trees in landscapes.

For night shots with longer exposures, the D-40 Zoom employs a Noise Reduction mode.

The D-40 Zoom features a new 10-position Mode Dial, with creative modes pre-set to fine tune exposure, white balance and color saturation settings for any shooting situation. A new "My Image" mode gives users one-touch access to customized settings.

To download, save and share photos, the D-40 Zoom also features Olympus' USB Auto-Connect technology, which supports Macintosh and Windows (including Mac OS X).

The D-40 Zoom will be available October for $799. It ships with a 16 MB Olympus SmartMedia memory card, USB cable, AV cable, one LB-01 Lithium battery (also uses 2 standard AA batteries), RM-1 remote control, Olympus Camedia Master Software for image manipulation and creation, instruction manual, QuickStart Guide and strap.
