Olympus To Ship C-4000 Zoom

Digital camera offers 4 megapixel resolution By Dave Nagel
Olympus says it will debut the Camedia C-4000 Zoom digital camera this summer. The latest model in Olympus' C-series offers a 4 megapixel resolution and an f2.8 3x optical zoom lens. It's expected to be available in August for $499.

The Camedia C-4000 Zoom offers a number of professional features, including multi-point spot average metering, "Super Macro" focusing and histogram in Shooting and Review modes. The lens is an all-glass 6.5mm-19.5mm f2.8-f11 lens (the equivalent of 32-96mm in 35mm photography). And the camera offers manual settings with individual controls for aperture priority, shutter priority and full manual operation with manual shutter speeds ranging from 16 to 1/1,000 of a second.

The camera's multi-point metering enables up to eight separate points in the image area to be averaged for proper exposure. Dynamic Histograms are visible on the LCD in both Shoot and Review modes. And it also includes selectable AF point, an external TTL flash terminal and adjustable white balance and one touch white balance.

The C-4000 also includes several automated features for point and shoot operation, as well as presets for portrait, self portrait, landscape-portrait, landscape, night scene and sports.

The C-4000 Zoom will be available in August and will come with an Auto-Connect USB cable, video cable, carrying strap, lens cap with retainer cord, 2 LB-01 CR-V3 Lithium batteries, a 16 MB SmartMedia card and Olympus Camedia Master Software 4.0. The camera is compatible with macintosh and Windows systems and will sell for $499. For more information, visit
