From the Manufacturer
Thanks to waterproofing technology adopted from Olympus’ Stylus Tough series cameras, the new 10-megapixel Stylus 550WP waterproof camera is optimized for those who want to take stunning images of their aquatic adventures, making it the perfect pool companion.
Olympus Stylus 550WP Highlights
The Stylus-550WP can go where other cameras fear to tread and can perform as well under water as it does on land because of its slim lightweight, aluminum exterior that is sealed from the elements by interior rubber gaskets and O-rings. The Stylus-550WP can be submerged up to 10 feet under water, and the inclusion of an underwater scene mode makes it ideal for taking photos while snorkeling, in the pool, or riding the waterslide.
Intelligent Auto Thinks for You
In or out of the water, you won’t miss the shot thanks to Intelligent Auto Mode. It automatically identifies what you are shooting (i.e. Portrait, Night + Portrait, Landscape, Macro and Sports) and adjusts the camera’s settings to capture the best quality results. First-time users can dive into this quick and hassle-free feature that does the thinking for them and produces incredible images.
Can’t Hide with Face Detection!
Portrait and group shots make family reunions live beyond the short event, and with Face Detection you’ll capture even the shyest relatives. The new camera detects up to three faces within the frame and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure to capture sharp, brilliant portraits and group shots. With the waterproof Stylus-550WP, you’ll capture amazing photos even if your next family reunion is at a water park!
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 Stylus-550WP offers the flexibility to use either xD-Picture Card or microSD memory cards, which is just one more advantage of Olympus point-and-shoot cameras.
Freeze that Splash with Digital Image Stabilization
The fast motion of moving sea life or paddling swimmers could easily cause blurry images. Digital Image Stabilization freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to help prevent blurry images often caused by a moving subject, resulting in crystal-clear snaps.
Perfect Fix In-Camera Editing
While it can’t remove the red from your eyes caused by too much chlorine in the water, the Stylus-550WP offers Red-Eye Fix as well as other in-camera editing features such as Shadow Adjustment Edit, resizing and cropping, so you can edit photos right in the camera. With the Perfect Fix function, multiple editing features can be applied at once, so what you see on the 2.5-inch LCD will look amazing when you show it to your friends in the hot tub.
