Ahhh......I have translated... and I didn't have to learn a new language either. Here is what the page listed above basically says:
Quote:
-It improves peripheral resolving power, adopting multiple Bali a tar zoom & the ED lens which also aberration are lightened
-With adoption of individual Takasina rank image processing technology such as proper color gamma technology and advanced noise filter further high picture quality
-Recently with super macro mode of connection 3cm & the conversion lens of selling separately, covering the extensive photographing territory
Under the C-755UZ:
Quote:
Manufacturer desired retail price: 75,000 Yen (classified by tax)
Sale due date:
Titanium silver/late October
Ebony black/late November
Under the C-745UZ:
Quote:
Manufacturer desired retail price: 63,000 Yen (classified by tax)
Sale due date: The earlier November
The accessories listed are nothing new other than both come with a Lithium electric battery pack (LB-01 2P)....not sure if that means no more AA batteries or if Olympus has designed a 6volt lithium battery pack for the cameras. I hope they still allow the use of AA's! :roll:

Other than that the C-755UZ looks to have the exact same specs as the current C-750UZ other than the inclusion of PictBridge.

So why come out with the C-755 and C745? I have found your answer:
Quote:
100 ten thousand unit (1million cameras...translation isn't always great) achievement commemorations "C-755UltraZoom ebony black" limitation sale. Since "C-700 Ultra Zoom" selling of 2001 April, the "CAMEDIA ultra zoom series" achieved the shipment 100 ten thousand in the entire world. It commemorated that, had received demand from many ones, the high-class impression the ebony (ebony wood) black model which overflows 10000 units is sold with limitation.

Just found something else interesting, a comparison between the cameras and under the catagory: Photographing element I am seeing something difference between the older and newer models:

C-750UZ: CCD solid state image sensor, camera section effective pixel several 400 ten thousand pixels(4million)
C-755UZ: 1/2.5 types (inch) CCD solid state image sensor, 423 ten thousand pixels (camera section effective pixel several 400 ten thousand pixels)(again, translation isn't all that great, thats 4million)
Both of the newer models (C755 & C745) list this newer type ccd. Speculation? Anyone know the size in the older models?

Other than that everything is the same from the spec sheets. Also I found out the batteries are the same as the current model... nothing special there. All the new models add are PictBridge and the new ccd as well as some in-camera processing changes.

Now I can breath a little easy as it doesn't look to offer anything at all worth upgrading to....still no auto-focus assist lamp, improved lens and so on. I guess it maybe interesting to see how the autofocus works and what the deal is with the CCD.


The camera sure looks nice in black though!
