Olympus intros £169 FE-5020 digital camera

Olympus has introduced the 169 FE-5020 digital camera, which promises to lead the way in the new FE series, which also includes the 99 FE-26 and 139 FE-4000.

Available in pure white, dark grey, mocha brown and ocean blue the Olympus FE-5020 features a 12 megapixels CCD image sensor and an Olympus-branded 4x optical zoom lens, which offers focal length equivalents from a 24mm wide angle to a 120mm telephoto.

ISO sensitivity ranges from a low of ISO 64 to a maximum of ISO 3,200 equivalent.

With a super wide zoom, AF tracking, Dual Image Stabilisation and Advanced Face Detection your photos will always look sharp insists Olympus.

The FE-5020 employs a contrast-detection autofocus system operating off data streaming from the camera's image sensor, and the FE-5020 also includes face detection capability, capable of simultaneously detecting up to 16 faces in the framed scene according to Olympus.

The FE-5020 also comes with four Magic Filters - Pop Art, Fish Eye, Sketch and Pin Hole so you can be a little creative with your photos.

You can also record movies with sound says Olympus.

The Olympus FE-5020 camera will be available from August from all Olympus stockists with a SRP of 169.
