20 Shooting Modes to Choose From
The Olympus FE-360 also offers Digital Image Stabilization, which is essentially a setting that causes the camera to raise ISO sensitivity, along with shutter speeds and image noise, in an attempt to freeze motion. ISO sensitivity ranges from a low of ISO 64 to a maximum of ISO 1,000 equivalent.
Furthermore, the digital image stabilization mode prevents and corrects blurry images without a computer! Digital Image Stabilization mode freezes the action with high ISO sensitivity and faster shutter speed to capture sharp images even if you or your subject is moving.
The Olympus’ FE-360 employs a contrast-detection autofocus system operating off of data streaming from the camera’s image sensor, along with face detection capabilities. Olympus’ Face Detection function is linked to both auto exposure and autofocus systems, ensuring that your subjects’ faces are taken into account when determining both these variables. It also allows for tracking of the subject’s face as it moves around the frame, once detected.
A “Perfect Shot Preview” mode allows users to see what the effects of certain camera adjustments – for example, exposure compensation, white balance, or metering mode â€“ will look like before actually taking a photo. A wide range of some 20 shooting modes are offered in the Olympus FE-360, allowing users a generous degree of control over their images without needing to understand the subtleties of shutter speeds and apertures.
For viewing images on a television, the Olympus FE360 has audio / video output connectivity, while images can be transferred to a PC over a USB 2.0 High-Speed connection. A rechargeable Lithium Ion battery with charger is included with the FE360. Additionally, images are stored in 20.5MB of internal memory, as well as on xD-Picture Card memory cards. Interestingly, Olympus has also chosen to include an MASD-1 microSD to xD-Picture Card adapter in the FE-360 bundle, allowing the use of microSD cards in the camera as well.
