  • Conclusion: Olympus SP-590 UZ Megazoom digital camera Mega zoom cameras have been under a lot of pressure for a small period of time, mainly caused by the launch of affordable entry-level DSLR cameras. The manufacturer reckoned on a quicker switch from compact to DSLR, making the mega zoom segment superfluous. However, this turned out differently in practice.

Olympus SP-590 UZ

Cameras
8 August 2014
  • Conclusion: I find with these larger cameras there is less difference in the quality of the photos they take. Therefore whether you buy the Olympus SP-590UZ in preference to other similar cameras is likely to come down how you fell about the features and handling. Overall I like this camera and there is little to put me off buying.
  • Pros: Long lens - start up times
  • Cons: Purple fringing - sharper images when zoom is not used

Olympus SP-590 UZ

PhotoReview
1 April 2009
  • Summary: A compact digicam with the longest optical zoom range currently available plus a special Bird Watching mode.Twenty-six times optical zoom is a big ask for a compact, small-sensor digicam, even with optical image stabilisation built-in. Yet that's what Olympus is offering in its 12-megapixel SP590 UZ model.
  • Cons: You want to shoot raw files (this camera is restricted to JPEG capture)., You require high performance levels in dim or contrasty lighting., You want to shoot widescreen or high-definition video., You want to shoot fast-moving action.

  • Excerpt: L' Olympus SP-590 UZ est un appareil bridge qui s’inscrit dans la continuité des SP comme le SP-570 UZ . La réactualisation porte sur le boîtier dont le design est un peu (mais à peine) modifié mais surtout sur un nouveau zoom impressionnant puisqu’il s’agit d’un zoom 26x allant de 26mm à 676mm . Evidemment ce zoom sera stabilisé , en l’occurrence par le biais du capteur. Le capteur de 12 MP reste traditionnel par sa taille.
  • Pros: amplitude du zomm (stabilisé par le capteur), fonctions experts
  • Cons: bruit en haute sensibilité, Pas d'enregistrement en RAW
