The Olympus E-450 Digital SLR Camera is a lightweight 10-megapixel DSLR that offers heavyweight technologies, including a bigger, more viewable 2.7-inch LCD and consumer-friendly fast On-Screen Autofocus , Face Detection , Shadow Adjustment Technology , Perfect Shot Preview and 3 new Art Filters (Pop Art, Soft Focus, & Pin Hole) which to get the most out of the Live View experience. At 2.7-inches, the portable E-450 LCD is large enough for users to compose and review images without squinting. The small camera's LCD is not just larger, it is part of a camera with technologies intelligent enough to take advantage of the Live View photography experience. Innovative technologies include On-Screen Autofocus , which works as seamlessly as a point-and-shoot to display subjects in focus on the LCD the instant the shutter is pressed half way. Face Detection Technology targets and locks on up to eight faces to ensure they are in focus and crystal clear for amazing portraits. New and Improved HyperCrystal II Technology delivers twice the contrast and better viewing in extreme lighting conditions, a broader range of color detail, and a wider angle of view on the LCD so you and your friends can see it up to 176 degrees off-center. Shadow Adjustment Technology captures detail in the bright areas of a frame and opens up detail in the shadows that other cameras would render too dark or underexposed. And Perfect Shot Preview enables you to view and select your favorite effect right on the LCD . This 3x standard zoom lens is the smallest and lightest in its class and features a closest focusing distance of only 25cm. The ED (Extra-low Dispersion) and two aspherical lens elements correct aberrations without increasing lens dimensions. The circular aperture diaphragm enables beautiful defocusing - one of the big advantages of this lens.
