Designed to be Approachable Connecting the Stylus 500 to a computer is easy with the USB Auto Connect feature, which connects directly via USB 2.0 cable and requires no software. Or, If you prefer, forget the computer altogether. The power of PictBridge technology enables photos to be printed directly from the Stylus 500 to any PictBridge-enabled printer, such as the Olympus P-10 Digital Photo Printer, without using a computer. Printing and sharing images has never been easier, and the P-10's photo lab-quality dye-sublimation printing produces archival-quality prints in rich color.

The 5 megapixel Stylus 500 takes great pictures. It records excellent movies with sound. It's all weather for everyday use. And it boasts incredible features like 21 shooting modes, a new Album function, and a large, state-of-the-art 2.5" HyperCrystal LCD so you and others can see photos and watch your QuickTime movies from virtually any angle.
