Olympus has launched a digital camera for sports photographers that offers sharper resolution and more vivid colour, it claims. In-house designers produced the Camedia C-4040ZOOM, the first four megapixel compact digital camera with 7.7m pixel output. It allows up to eight sequence shots to be captured at up to two frames a second, and has a built-in flash and mapping technology. It also boasts a ‘noise reduction’ facility that looks at images against a black background to identify and remove ‘noise’. The £800 camera is the latest in the Camedia range that includes the C-2040ZOOM and C-3040ZOOM.
