  • Excerpt: For those wanting a powerful and affordable digital camera, Olympus has announced a sub-$200, ultra-zoom camera; the SP-620UZ.  If bold, crisp imagery is something you enjoy, this 620UZ's 16.0 megapixel 1/2.3" CCD and 21x optical zoom will help you be apart of all the action, near or far, macro or landscape.

  • Conclusion: The Olympus SP-620UZ is an affordable, compact (but not pocket size) superzoom camera with a 21x zoom lens. It's affordably priced, but not as refined as its pricier competition.
  • Pros: Inexpensive. Relatively compact. Sharp lens. Strong performance. 21x zoom lens.
  • Cons: Image quality suffers at high ISOs. Cannot adjust zoom while recording video. Video limited to 720p. Low-res rear LCD.

  • Conclusion: The Olympus SP-620UZ is an entry-level superzoom with modest ambition, but fortunately a low(ish) price that suggests anyone purchasing won't feel they are taking a big risk. The all-encompassing lens reach may not match pricier cameras, but it remains at a level with which it is practical to shoot handheld and still get sharp results.

  • Summary: The SP-620UZ's performance is, frankly, quite superb given its price and some of my initial worries of the 16-megapixel sensor. Yes the design is a bit clunky and the build does feel rather flimsy, but...

  • Conclusion: In a nutshell, Olympus SP-620UZ is simply a value for money product with decent super zoom performance. However, the cons still present there like the absent of command dials, optical and electronic viewfinders as well as dedicated buttons. Also, the camera does not provide the facility of using both optical zoom and audio at the same time. The highlight of the device is the vividness of its lens.

Olympus SP-620UZ

TechRadar UK
29 February 2012
  • Excerpt: Recent bridge camera/superzoom releases such as the Fuji X-S1 might have suggested cameras sporting large, fixed lenses were evolving into luxury items second only to DSLRs. Blowing that theory is the Olympus SP-620UZ, which is resolutely a budget-priced, entry-level superzoom.

  • Excerpt: With seemingly no let up in the number of super zoom cameras and bridge models being released, despite the fact that compact system cameras and HD video shooting DSLRs are arguably the latest and greatest thing, Olympus swells the ranks with the 16 megapixel SP-620UZ 'Ultra Zoom'. Marking 10 years of the SP range the key appeal here is, inevitably, jack-of-all-trades convenience and the ability to frame up everything from fingernail sized close ups to skittish deer a...

Olympus SP-620UZ review

Pocket Lint
21 February 2012
  • Conclusion: While the SP-620UZ is plasticy and basic looking compared with a top-of-the-range bridge camera, the feeling here is that we are more or less getting what we’re paying for, which can’t be bad. Furthermore, using natural daylight we were able to get sharp results shooting handheld at maximum telephoto setting which isn’t often the case on more expensive models with broader focal ranges – so perhaps there’s something to be said for the SP-620UZ’s modest ambitions.
  • Pros: Broader than average zoom range, sensible price, delivers natural colours, commendably sharp results at maximum zoom
  • Cons: Plasticy feel, fiddly rear scroll wheel, non-rechargeable batteries, lack of electronic or optical viewfinder, no hotshoe for accessory flash, low(ish) resolution LCD, can’t shoot video with sound and use the optical zoom

  • Conclusion: Osobiście nie biorę pod uwagę aparatów, które nie pozwalają mi fotografować w moim ulubionym trybue preselekcji przysłony. SP-620UZ jest pod tym względem zautomatyzowany. Producent jednak przewidział możliwość wykonywania ręcznego balansu bieli, czego nie było w wielu starszych modelach. Jest zatem postęp. Niestety dużym minusem jest słaba dynamika. Zaletą zaś przyzwoita szczegółowość obrazu i niskie szumy.
  • Pros: wysoka rozdzielczość obrazu (ale bardzo mocno
  • Cons: słabe odwzorowanie barw i dynamika, brak optycznego zoomu podczas rejestracji wideo, przeciętny wyświetlacz
