DigiCamReview.co.ukOlympus SP-550 UZ review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Olympus SP-550 UZ Megazoom digital camera review. The Olympus SP550 spans a focal length of an amazing 28-504mm (35mm camera equivalent). With an 18x wide zoom lens (equivalent to 28-504mm on a 35mm camera) there’s no need to disturb a subject, whether it be an animal wandering through the wilderness or people lounging in a city park. Since telephoto shots can be more prone to blur caused by camera shake, the Olympus SP-550 UZ Megazoom camera features Dual Image Stabilization to help deliver the clearest results possible. With a 6.4cm LCD it’s easy to frame and capture shots without having to do a crazy stunt.
Olympus SP-550 UZ review at DigiCamReviewOlympus SP550 UZ - Focus
According to Joshua Waller: "Focusing seemed fairly quick especially with the lens at the wide-angle setting (under 1 second). The playback mode is a fairly quick, with photos taking under a second before displaying when going from photo to photo - and the zoom is very quick. The camera shutter response seemed very quick when pre-focused, with a response time of around 0.1 seconds. Shot to shot time was average, with a delay of around 3 seconds between shots without flash."

Olympus SP-550 camera - Shutter and Flash
Joshua continues: "The pop-up flash release button is easy to use and clearly labeled. The four-way controller provides quick access to most common functions such as self-timer, macro mode, flash etc. I thought the camera felt very good ergonomically, with an excellent sized rubber hand grip, an excellent rubber thumb grip on the back, and other rubber cladding around the lens and on the left of the body the camera is very easy to hold. The shutter release and zoom very well positioned.

Olympus SP550 UZ Megazoom camera - Image quality
"Image quality is very good, the images have very good colour, with good contrast and detail, with fairly low noise except for the higher ISO settings. Images were slightly soft straight from the camera and could benefit from sharpening (this can be changed in camera). Purple fringing was quite low although was noticeable at the telephoto end of the zoom range. Red-eye was low. The camera did a good job focusing the majority of the time, with low light focusing aided by the focus assist lamp.", concludes Joshua. You want to learn more about the Olympus digital camera?
