Looking for a Waterproof Camera? New Olympus model just released.

Monday, 25 August 2008
Stylus 1050 SWOlympus has just released information on an updated Stylus 1050 SW point and shoot camera. It is very similar to the current Stylus 1030 SW with similar specs (10.1MP, 5 feet shockproof, 10 ft. waterproof, 14°F freezeproof) but with a tap-control feature to make it easier to take pictures in extreme environments. By tapping the top, back or sides of the camera, you can toggle through different options and settings even if you are under water or wearing thick gloves.

How do they do it you ask? There is a built in accelerometer that measures precise movements in the camera to allow for button-free control.

Look for it on the store shelves in October starting around $300.
