eighteen(!) – multiple “ultrazoom” Olympus SP-550UZ
Rejoice, ultrazoom lovers! Olympus today announced the SP-550UZ with 18 (!) -fold zoom lens. Moreover, the range of its equivalent focal lengths extends from the highly demanded “wide-angle” 28 mm to the impressive 504 mm “telephoto”. And, most importantly, the camera is equipped with a full-fledged image stabilization system based on the principle of matrix shift.
The design of the novelty is made in the style of SLR cameras (SLR-style) and has little overlap with the design of the previous “ultrazoom” SP-510UZ. Obviously, the new model will not replace it on the market, but will only complement the line of such cameras, taking a step higher. Thus, Olympus SP-550UZ will soon become the company’s top model among compact cameras.
The resolution of the 1 / 2.5-inch CCD sensor is the already familiar 7.1 megapixel. However, unlike the SP-510UZ, where in the BrightCapture Technology mode the sensitivity reached ISO 4000 (when shooting with a resolution of 3 megapixels), the manufacturer did not hesitate to raise it to 5000 units in the new product. I wonder if anything will be visible in the pictures taken at ISO 5000, except for the “mess” of noise?
This certainly interesting camera will appear in March for about $ 500.
