Set your camera to "cuisine"

Olympus is introducing the Stylus 500, a new digital camera with a very specialized setting:
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.
Amazon already has them in stock, for just a hair under $400.

Must. resist. ordering.
