Olympus Mju Digital 800 goes to Duran Duran : The legendary Duran Duran are currently on a world tour promoting their latest album Astronaut. When they stopped by in Hamburg, Olympus had a special surprise in store for them: an 8.0 million pixel Olympus Mju Digital 800. The Japanese camera manufacturer presented Nick Rhodes, head of the band and avid photographer, with the first available model of this series in Europe. Incorporating Bright Capture Technology, the Olympus Digital 800 is particularly suited for taking shots in challenging lighting conditions, such as at concerts. In situations of low light the built-in LCD automatically increases brightness to ensure accurate framing and deliver crystal clear images.
