Olympus Stylus 800 Digital Camera Preview

With 8 megapixels and a 2.5-inch LCD screen, the Olympus Stylus Verve 800 takes the lead in the fleet of Stylus digital cameras. It takes a big leap in the megapixel war with a 1/1.8-inch CCD rather than the 5-megapixel, 1/2.5-inch CCD found on the Stylus 500. The new Stylus 800 offers more manual control, faster burst and startup times, and better performance in low light.

DigitalCameraReview.com today posted their Olympus Stylus 800 Digital Camera Preview and wrote-
"Shortly after its introduction (in 1990) the rugged little Stylus became the 35mm P&S camera of choice for a generation of World trekkers, travel writers, print & TV correspondents, and extreme sports fans. The new digital Stylus 800 retains much of the style, charm, and usability of its film predecessor plus the ability to withstand extended exposure to mist, rain, snow, jungle humidity, desert dust, and ocean spray. The Stylus 800 also boasts 8-megapixel resolution, a bright 2.5 inch LCD screen, a 3X optical zoom, "Point & Shoot" ease of use, manual exposure capability, and an ISO 1600 sensitivity setting."
