  Olympus Mons - Encyclopedia.WorldSearch   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
Olympus Mons is an apparently extinct shield volcano, the result of highly fluid lava flowing out of volcanic vents over a long period of time, and is much wider than it is tall; the average slope of Olympus Mons' flanks is very gradual.
The volcano is surrounded by a region known as the Olympus Mons Aureole (Latin, "Circle of Light") with gigantic ridges and blocks extending 1000 km (600 miles) from the summit that show evidence of development and resurfacing connected with glacial activity.
The size of Olympus Mons is so great (roughly the size of the American state of Missouri) that a person standing on the surface of Mars would be unable to view the profile of the volcano even from a distance as the curvature of the planet would obscure such detail.

 Mount Olympus - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mount Olympus (also transliterated as Mount Olýmpos, and on modern maps, Óros Ólimbos) is the highest mountain in Greece, at 2,917 meters high; it is situated at 40°05′ N 22°21′ E.
Mount Olympus is noted for its very rich flora, possibly the richest in the whole of Europe, with several endemic species.
Mount Olympus is one of the highest ranges in Europe in terms of real visible altitude from base-to-summit since its base is located next to the Aegean at a sea level elevation, making as such its about 3,000 meters real and completely visible.

It is 24 kilometers (15 miles) high, 550 kilometers (340 miles) in diameter and is rimmed by a 6 kilometers (4 miles) high scarp.
Olympus [oh-LIM-pus] Mons is the largest volcano known in the solar system.
It is possible that volcanoes of such magnitude were able to form on Mars because the hot volcanic regions in the mantle remained fixed relative to the surface for hundreds of millions of years.

 Olympus E-300 review
Olympus will probably go down in history as the company who dared to be different by introducing a completely new camera standard at a time when the digital camera market was already starting to show signs of becoming overcrowded.
This is the result of the fact that Olympus have chosen to replace the pentaprism by a TTL Optical Porro Finder, resulting in a flat-topped camera which looks wider than it is. The body is built around a sturdy, die-cast aluminium chassis and made of strong polycarbonate with an aluminium top cover.
Olympus have now corrected this issue with the announcement of their own f3.5-5.6/14-45mm Zuiko Digital zoom that is quite a bit more affordable.

Olympus became an official sponsor of the Scuderia Ferrari Marlboro F1 racing team at the start of the 2003 Formula One racing season.
This partnership between Ferrari and Olympus is an ideal match of corporate philosophies that are typified by an unswerving commitment to accept any challenge in the pursuit of the No.1 position.
The Ferrari Red finish was subjected to approximately five times as many checks as usual to ensure colour accuracy, and the external aluminium parts were hand-polished and given a special coating to ensure a level of lustre and durability which are extremely difficult to achieve through ordinary mass-production methods.

 Olympus C-5060 Wide Zoom review
Looking back into digital history, Olympus have always been a dominant force in the digital camera market and over the years they have released quite a number of products that range from basic entry level models to their very advanced and professional all digital SLR, the E-1.
Owners of the Olympus C5050 will notice that most of the controls on the new camera are in almost exactly the same place as before, which makes using the Olympus C-5060 almost intuitive for those already familiar with the older model.
Looking at the performance put in by the Olympus f2.8 - f4.8, 5.7 - 22.8mm, 4x zoom lens (27 - 110mm eq.), we noted that barrel distortion at wide angle was a little higher than average as opposed to the telephoto end that showed no barrel or pincushion distortion whatsoever.

 Olympus E-1 Digital SLR
Olympus E1 at ISO 400, 14-54mm f 2.8-35 Zuiko Digital zoom at f/4.5 with 1/640th of a second.
In the case of the Olympus E-1, the answer is five, the same as the company's E-20n, which to my way of thinking is a good thing, because that camera has been taken to the heart by many users because of its combination of value, image quality and rugged construction.
Olympus claims a shutter lag time of 65milliseconds, which is the same as the E-20n and not quite up to professional film SLRs.

 Olympus
Olympus is located between Macedonian Pieria and Thessalian Perrhaebia, ancient regions divided by mountain range and indefinite borders.
Nevertheless, Upper Olympus, the distinct central base of the triple range, is Olympus proper, and it is due to this that it is named polydeira and polyptychos in poetry.
Therefore, if the region of northern Thessaly near Olympus is one of the first places of concentration for the Proto-Doric tribes, then the coastal area in the vicinity of Olympus in neighboring Pieria could be one of the possible areas of settlement of the Mycenean colonizers.
