The night owls’ choice: the Olympus µ DIGITAL 600 - Bright prospects for nighttime shooting
While the early bird may catch the worm, it’s the night owl that gets to see most of the
action. Most dinners, concerts and parties usually don’t get going before well into the
evening hours. These are also typically the particularly fun and memorable times in life –
situations and experiences you want to capture as photos and savour over years to
come. Yet often the image results leave much to be desired. Shots are frequently
underexposed due to insufficient lighting or too intensely lit up by a flash – or even worse
– the subject is only partially recorded due to framing difficulties in the dark conditions.
But thankfully Olympus has created a camera with advanced low light capabilities for
excellent image results no matter the conditions. The 6.0 million pixel µ DIGITAL 600
completely caters to the special needs of night-time revellers. Using the innovative
BrightCapture Technology, this new model brings reliable, high-performance shooting
directly to the next party, rock concert or candle-light dinner.
The µ DIGITAL 600 is a genuine bright spark on the digital camera scene. Its 6.0 million
pixels and precision 3x zoom lens (equivalent to 35-105mm in 35mm format) help
capture images in amazing quality. 23 scene modes are on board that cover just about
any shooting situation such as portraits, landscapes or even for underwater shots (in
conjunction with the optional Underwater Case). This weatherproof* model also gives
users movie recording and the facility to take astonishing close-ups in Super Macro
mode. Moreover, thanks to the Guide Function, which reveals the purpose and
recommended use of the various camera functions directly on the huge 6.4cm LCD, the µ
DIGITAL 600 is exceedingly easy to use.
However, the real coup of this stunning, ultra-compact model is its extraordinary nighttime shooting ability that dramatically enhances the framing of compositions and the
subsequent image results. Incorporation of BrightCapture Technology makes framing
compositions under low light conditions a breeze. A mere 1/5th of the regular luminosity
is required for clear depictions on the LCD – without this technology these views would
otherwise be lost in darkness. BrightCapture Technology also provides better images in
low light. Special scene modes like Indoor and Available Light Portrait use this
technology. The result: better exposed images, lower risk of image blur, and with
Available Light Portrait, it is even possible to shoot without a flash more often. This is
especially helpful wherever flash usage is prohibited or in order to show warm light
ambience, for example.
Ideal for night owls who want to capture the fun of the night, the PictBridge-compatible µ
DIGITAL 600 comes in a choice of three colours – Navy Blue, Ruby Red and Arctic Silver.
Easy to use, incorporating 6.0 million pixels and equipped with the innovative
BrightCapture Technology, this latest camera is hard to top. It comes with the Olympus
Master software and will hit the shelves in autumn this year.
