Olympus Stylus 500 - Set it on 'Cuisine'

Who knew?

It seems that the rage in Japan these days is photographing your restaurant meal before chowing down.

Far be it from Japan-headquartered Olympus to ignore the rumblings from the Tokyo street: they've created a new camera scene mode setting called "Cuisine" - making its debut in this instrument - to optimize things for indoor food photography.

Love it.

On sale in January here in the U.S. for around $400.

3x optical zoom, 5 megapixels, and a very nice 2.5," 215,000-pixel LCD "Hyper Crystal" screen.

They've tricked-out the screen by laying out the liquid crystal molecules in a radial pattern so the viewing angle's up to 160°, which is much wider than typical LCD screens.

The camera's got built-in software that allows you to sort pictures stored on the memory card into 12 different albums.

Hey, JM in Singapore, here's your new camera.

Now where's my soba?
