Steve's DigicamsOlympus SP550 review at Steves Digicams : Our good friends at Steves Digicams have published their review of the Olympus SP-550 UZ Megazoom compact camera. The Olympus SP-550 UZ digital camera spans an amazing 28-504mm (35mm camera equivalent). Packing 7.1 Megapixels of detail-capturing power, the Olympus SP-550 UZ camera opens up a new realm of creative possibility - because if it’s in your life, it’s in your Olympus SP550 Megazoom camera. Explore the possibilities of this kind of magnification power. 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.

Olympus SP-550 UZ - Responsiveness
According to Steve Digicams: Start-up time is relatively slow at 3.7 seconds, to a large extent attributable to the extension of the 18x zoom lens. Shutter lag when pre-focused is very good at 1/10 second, a great deal of that resulting from the delay in the live image on either the EVF or LCD viewfinder. Shot-to-shot delay without flash in single capture mode was 2.7 seconds for three shots, slowing to 4 second intervals for subsequent shots. With flash, the shot-to-shot interval ranged between 3 and 10 seconds, depending on subject distance and battery condition. Shutter lag when using red eye reduction pre-flash measured 1.1 seconds, during which the LCD or EVF goes blank."

Olympus SP550 review conclusion - Steves Digicams
Steve continues: "The quality of the Olympus SP-550's SHQ images is on par with many 7-megapixel consumer models. Our outdoor shots were sharp with good overall exposure and color saturation. At ISO settings of 200 and below, images were essentially noise free. At ISO 400, noise becomes detectable, at ISO 800 noticeable with some loss of detail, and at ISO 1600 and up increasing noise and decreasing detail. That said, there will be times that you'll appreciate the SP-550's high sensitivity settings." You want to learn more about the Olympus digital megazoom camera?
