The CAMEDIA C-730 Ultra Zoom - the world's first digital camera to combine a 3.2 million pixel resolution with a 10x optical zoom. Its magnification power is enhanced by a 3x digital zoom. Together this provides for 30x zooming power - equivalent to 1140 mm with a 35 mm camera - in a very compact, ergonomic form. An improved, high resolution electronic viewfinder provides the user with a clear image. Refined automatic functions and pre-set shooting modes, such as for landscapes and sports, assure optimum results with minimum effort. For the more advanced photographer, the C-730 Ultra Zoom permits manual operation of many settings, like aperture and shutter speed, via easy-to-use controls. Preferred shooting set-ups can be saved in four My Mode folders. Furthermore, the camera incorporates a histogram and noise reduction function. This is also the first Olympus model to accept the innovative digital photo storage standard, xD-Picture Card. Saving information, such as the shooting, white balance and flash modes used, in Exif 2.2 standard means that compatible printers can intelligently apply this data to produce optimal printed results.

Other Features
The C-730 Ultra Zoom is equipped with a range of precision metering systems and special functions to ensure best results. Three exposure metering modes are available. Digital ESP takes readings from various points in the frame and intelligently processes the data to determine the optimal settings. Spot metering adjusts the exposure to suit the central area in the frame, while multi spot sets the exposure based on the average value from up to eight points selected by the user. A histogram displays brightness distribution of both captured and live images in a graphic form to allow the exposure to be checked.
