The waterproof, sporty Olympus X-560WP is the ideal camera for the pool, the beach or out for a day on the water. A revolutionary system of waterproof seals and gaskets keeps water out so you can take pictures as deep as 3m underwater. The X-560WP boasts intelligent auto that automatically identifies the scene you’re shooting -- portrait, landscape, night portrait, macro, or sport -- and adjusts the settings for optimal results. And AF tracking automatically tracks the movements of energetic photo targets like kids and pets and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness to easily capture them sharply. The X-560WP also features a 3x optical internal zoom lens, digital image stabilization, and its face detection detects up to 16 faces. RRP $229. NO LONGER AVAILABLE.

Movie Feature – captures video with audio up to 640 x 480 resolution at 30 frames per second.
