Full-Featured Telephoto Lens Weighs Less Than 3lbs; Take a 'First Look' at the New Olympus 300mm F4.0 and Stylus Tough Waterproof Camera With Industry Expert Mason Resnick
NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jan 6, 2016) - Adorama, one of the world's largest photography, video, audio, imaging and electronics retailers, is now accepting preorders for the recently announced Olympus M Zuiko Digital ED 300mm F/4.0 Telephoto Lens and the new OlympusStylus Tough TG-870 Digital Waterproof Camera offered in Gunmetal Metallic Black, Metallic Green, and Pure White.
Making its debut at the CES 2016 exhibition, the new Olympus 300mm telephoto lens is designed for Micro Four Thirds mount cameras, offering an angle of view equivalent to a 600mm lens on a 35mm sensor camera, yet small and light enough to be handheld. Ideal for sports and wildlife photography, the new telephoto lens features 5-axis sync IS for steady shots of subjects moving through the frame and is fully compatible with Olympus mirrorless compact digital cameras' fast frame rates and short shutter lag times.
Also making its debut at CES 2016, the Stylus Tough TG-870 is waterproof to 50ft/15m and offers a full 180-degree flip LCD screen along with built-in wifi for easy sharing. The four sport cam modes simplify capturing fast action shots.
Get a First Look at the New Olympus Digital Imaging and Photography Gear with Industry Expert Mason Resnick
Adorama Learning Center's digital imaging expert, Mason Resnick, is one of the first to review the new Olympus offerings. His "first look" article hits the main features of both the lens and camera. An excerpt from the article reads: "According to Olympus, the lens features the world's most powerful image stabilization when working in tandem with built-in camera body IS, claiming 6 shutter speeds of compensation. The dustproof and splashproof lens is also said to have the highest resolution in Olympus history. With a closest focus distance of 1.4 meters, the maximum image magnification is 0.48x, which is nearly macro. Weighing in at only 1,270 grams, the Olympus 300mm f/4 is less than a third the weight of an equivalent 600mm Canon lens, and a fraction of its size."
