Olympus unleashes blinged-out Stylus 1040 with 98 Swarovski crystals

Put on your best outfit and get ready for bling themed party, and take along Olympus's limited edition Stylus 1040 Crystal digicam to capture the cherished memories. Olympus has stamped its Stylus 1040 with limited feature to capture beauty from the glittering world of fashion with 98 Swarovski crystals on the sliding lens barrier. PS- sexy model not included.

The Jeweled Olympus Stylus 1040 features a 10mp image sensor, completes with a 3x optical zoom (38-114mm 35mm equiv.), VGA 30fps video capture, digital image stabilization and a 2.7-inch HyperCrystal LCD screen. The camera uses company's TruePic III image processor, and has face-detection autofocus and autoexposure to provide Intelligent Auto mode detecting the five most commonly used scenes and adjusts settings, focus and exposure automatically. Honestly, do we really care about the technicalities? Lets hope the blings stick, it would be a shame if crystals stuck on the sliding lens cover.

The special edition of Olympus 1040 Crystal will be selling at £175 ($300) and available from the end of October 2009 in limited quantities.
