Jessops announces two Olympus cameras


olympus-x-915.jpgOlympus has just announced two digital cameras that’ll be exclusive to photo retailer Jessops. One’s pictured over there to the right – that’s the X915 – and then there’s the X890 too.

The X915 wears the trousers, so let’s examine him first. A 12-megapixel sensor, 2.7″ LCD screen and 5x optical zoom are packed into a 137g body. It’s XD and MicroSD compatible, and there’s a red eye editing feature, too.

It’s slightly younger brother is the X890, which has to make do with its older brothers cast-offs. A 10-megapixel sensor, 3x optical zoom and the same 2.7″ LCD are in the offing, as well as the aforementioned compatibility and editing settings.

The X915 costs £300 and the X890 costs £260. Both will be available on 21st February from your local Jessops.
