Olympus µ[mju:] ZOOM 140 compact camera. The µ[mju:] Series model features a 38-140 mm 3.7x zoom lens and an elegant design. In addition to the black version, a champagne-gold edition is available.
The latest release retains the µ[mju:] Series' streamlined contours and sliding lens barrier- keys to its sophisticated style as well as easy portability. And the high-powered 38-140 zoom lens brings another dimension to leisure photography.
Even with its 38-140 mm 3.7x zooming range, the µ[mju:] ZOOM 140 is small and convenient. In their pursuit of a body that is only 46 mm thick, the Olympus engineers adopted a four-stage lens barrel and developed a new optical system for the viewfinder. A number of innovations have gone into the electrical circuitry, and the high-powered flash ensures sufficient illumination at the 140 mm telephoto setting.
Not only does the high-performance aspherical glass lens deliver superior resolution, but the lens design contributes to the compact, lightweight design. Along with minimizing the size of the lens group, the engineers have slimmed down the lens when it is retracted. Reflecting these comprehensive refinements, the µ[mju:] ZOOM 140 measures only 120 (W) x 65.5 (H) x 46 (D) mm, and it weighs 255 g without a battery.
The new model's increased zooming capability also led to the first Passive Multi Autofocus system in a µ[mju:] Series camera. Employing a phase-differential method, the AF system is the ideal solution for a high zooming ratio.
