• The exclusive TruePic TURBO Image Processor delivers a camera that responds with impressive speed from the moment it's turned on and smooth, colorful images every time.

• People don't promote what they can't fix. That's why Olympus is the only one to speak up against dust and deliver the exclusive Supersonic Wave FilterTM that vibrates 35,000 times per second to eliminate dust from the image sensor and any concern you'll ever have about changing lenses...anywhere.

• The full-frame transfer CCD is designed to capture more information from each individual pixel to help you receive brilliant results from edge-to-edge with a full range of color, contrast and detail.

• Patented Dust Reduction System uses the Supersonic Wave Filter (SWF) to loosen and remove any and all dust and debris from the image sensor. The SWF vibrates at a rate of 35,000 times per second upon start-up as well as when manually activated - and is unnoticeable to the user - for clear, aberration-free images.

This removal of dust also means you never have to worry about changing lenses because if anything gets in, the SWF will get it out.

Capture sharp, detailed photos quickly. The exclusive TruePic TURBO Image Processor provides accelerated performance such as a faster start-up time, rapid shot-to-shot speed, and quicker playback of smooth, detail-rich photos.
