Olympus has released the next generation in its Stylus series: the Stylus 500. The camera features a 2.5-inch HyperCrystal LCD, 5 megapixels of image resolution and a compact, all-weather body.

The lens provides the equivalent of 35-105mm, f/3.1-f/5.2 in 35mm photography, with 12x combined total zoom (3x optical and 4x digital). A super macro mode captures fine details.

The LCD, with 215,000 pixels of high resolution, has a 160-degree view radius and provides visibility in any light condition. The Stylus 500 also combines a 5-megapixel CCD sensor with Olympus' image processor, TruePic Turbo, designed to enhance image quality and speed overall processing for rapid startup, shutter release and playback.

The body is constructed of durable, lightweight metal with rubber gaskets throughout the interior. The camera measures 3.9 x 2.2 x 1.2 inches and has an estimated retail price of $399.
