Olympus D-490 2.1MP Digital Camera w/ 3x Optical Zoom

With its 2.1-megapixel CCD, the Olympus D-490 zoom produces 1,600 x 1,200 resolution images, enabling sharp prints at sizes up to 8 by 10 inches. Like its physically identical predecessors (The D-460 and D-450), the camera has a 3x optical zoom lens, SmartMedia storage, and the familiar look and feel of Olympus’s traditional film cameras. Unlike its predecessors, the D-490 has an uncompressed TIFF mode for ultimate image clarity, as well as a QuickTime movie mode so you can take short silent film clips. The flip-up flash includes forced- flash, red-eye reduction, and slow synchronization modes. For flexibility in image composition, the camera has both an optical viewfinder and a 1.8-inch LCD display. The camera uses four AA batteries or a pair of Olympus long-life CR-V3 lithium batteries. Though the lithium batteries have an impressive life span, they’re nonrechargeable, so we still recommend getting a set of rechargeable batteries and a charger.
