PhotographyBlogOlympus SP550 review at PhotographyBLOG : DIWA member Mark Goldstein from PhotographyBLOG has reviewed the Olympus SP550 UZ Megazoom digital camera. 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 digital 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 squint.

Olympus SP550 UZ - Megazoom
According to Mark Goldstein: "The Olympus SP-550 UZ has 8 ISO settings from 50-5000. noise starts to appear very visibly upwards of ISO 800, and at ISO 1600 detail is noticeably being lost and images take on an impressionistic, painterly appearance. Why then Olympus has gone on to shoehorn in even higher ISO 3200 and ISO 5000 options – with a resultant drop in resolution – mystifies, though the suspicion is that it’s only to beef up the spec list. Here are some 100% crops which show the noise levels for each ISO setting."

Olympus SP550 camera - Housing quality
Mark continues: "Build quality is however good given its mainly plastic frame – the camera is solidly fashioned, attractively finished, and with batteries inserted feels capable of withstanding a few knocks in the heat of the action. The necessary unfurling of that zoom lens however does slow down responsiveness." You want to learn more about the Olympus SP550 digital camera?

About PhotographyBLOG
Mark Goldstein started his very active website PhotographyBLOG in January 2003.
