Olympus adds more digital camera options

Digital snappers catching up with the analogue world

Olympus is finding new ways to help you take pictures, even in low light.

Two new digital cameras announced at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week - the C-2040 and C-3040 - add a large f1.8 aperture to the zoom lens for taking pictures even when light is poor.

"No other digital camera has this superbright f1.8 lens," says Sally Smith Clemens, an Olympus spokesperson. "It not only makes it easier to shoot in low light without a flash, but it nearly doubles the distance supported by the built-in flash."

Available this spring, the 2.1-megapixel C-2040 and 3.3-megapixel C-3040 both feature a 3X zoom lens and menu options previously available only in high-end Olympus cameras.

Both cameras also ship with an 8MB SmartMedia card.
