OlympusOlympus SP-500 review : The Olympus SP-500 UZ digital camera is an advanced digital camera that straddles the border between compact digital cameras and digital reflex cameras. The Olympus SP500 US was officially introduced in the second half of last year providing a compact version of a Megazoom digital camera. The Olympus SP500 UZ is equipped with a six Megapixel image sensor and an optical range of 10x. In addition to its Megazoom capacities, the Olympus 500-UZ camera has many versatile setting options. We've been able to use the Olympus SP500 UZ in practise for a while, the following camera review will give you more insight in this Advanced Megazoom digital camera.

To guarantee sharpness in just about any situation, the Olympus SP-500UZ incorporates a precision auto focus system as well as spot AF and multi-spot AF, selectable from 143 points, plus predictive AF measurements for back or forward moving subjects. Movies with sound can be captured too, in up to VGA size at 30 frames per second. Its ergonomic, professionally-formed body together with a large range of advanced features makes this model ideal for taking along while travelling.

Boasting a 10x optical zoom that covers a 38-380mm focal range (35mm camera equivalent), the Olympus SP-500 UZ is geared for extreme shooting flexibility. It allows subjects, like a player on the far end of a football field, to be picked out and captured in full-format compositions. Even greater zoom power is available by using the optional Olympus TCON-17 tele converter, which extends magnification by a factor of 1.7x for an incredible maximum focal length of 646mm (35mm camera equivalent). The wide angle capabilities of the Olympus SP-500 Ultra Zoom can be boosted too with the Olympus WCON-07 to enable stunning 27mm views (35mm equivalent). Photographers can also shoot from extremely close in Super Macro mode which allows photos from a distance of merely 3cm.
