Olympus today announced their new sleek looking Olympus Stylus Verve S (µ-mini Digital S) digital point-and-shoot camera. The new model will sport a 5.0 megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom, and new night scene and portrait modes. No stylish camera is complete without being able to choose your color; choose from black, blue, champagne gold, or pink to suit your style.
In addition the camera will take digital movies with the only limit to length being the size of media card you own. As for taking pictures, all will be done straight from the 1.8″ LCD screen as the camera doesn’t have a viewfinder to allow for a more compact size. All packed in a small stylish case with the dimensions of 95 x 56 x 28 mm and a weight of 115g.
Expect this camera to hit the streets around April for $349.99 USD.
