ePhotoZine have reviewed the new Olympus SP-550 Ultra Zoom digital camera – it features a massive 18x optical zoom lens – equivalent to 28mm – 504mm in 35mm terms! The camera features an anti-shake CCD sensor image stabilisation system, 7 megapixel sensor, RAW support and a 2.5″ screen. The camera is available for £295 from Amazon UK.
“Thank goodness then for the 1cm Super Macro mode and the 28mm wide angle lens as they are great features to counter the flaccid autofocus and easy-to-fool metering. The SP-550UZ does look good, it has got some great features, but there are aspects of the performance and operation that leave something to be desired. ”
