The Olympus Stylus 1050 SW is the latest version of the companyâ€™s shockproof, waterproof and freezeproof SW line of digital cameras. It boasts a new Tap Control feature: you tap it on its top, back or sides instead of using a screen menu system to call up the various camera functions.
This is made possible with the new cameraâ€™s 3D accelerometer that detects the direction of the force on the cameraâ€™s body. For example, to turn on the flash or Shadow Adjustment Technology, use your finger to tap the cameraâ€™s side twice.
The 10.1-megapixel Stylus 1050 SW is shockproof to 1.5m, waterproof to 3m and freezeproof to -10Â°C. It sports a 2.7-inch LCD screen and offers a 3x, 38-114mm zoom lens. Available in late September for $300.
