  • Summary: The SP-620UZ from Olympus is built equally for still image capture as it is for 720p HD video. Multi-Motion Movie and Dual Image Stabilization help you get clearer stills and video.
  • Pros: Powerful 21x wide-angle zoom lens, Accurate exposures, Sturdy hand grip and body, Very fast high-speed burst modes, Records high-definition video, Dedicated movie record button, Runs on AA batteries (available anywhere), Helpful guide system with dedicated button
  • Cons: Auto focus could be more accurate, Moderate-resolution LCD (230,000 dots), Slow continuous shooting at 16MP (0.8fps), Cannot zoom during video recording, Controls are small and crowded together, iAuto without flash takes blurry shots in low light, Battery door can be difficult to slide open

  • 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.

Olympus SP-620UZ Review

What Digital Camera
2 March 2012
  • Summary: The camera was set to shoot at 16-megapixels and the Fine JPEG setting, but the key to the image performance is how it performs at the maximum zoom and the wide end of the lens, the two most likely places the camera will be shooting at.
  • Pros: Price tag, general performance, image quality, features, ease of use
  • Cons: Build quality, design flaws

Olympus SP-620UZ

CNET
28 February 2012
  • Summary: A good performance overall from the chunky Olympus SP-620UZ, but it's overshadowed by its slimmer sibling, the SZ-14. The lack of a bundled rechargeable battery or the ability to zoom while filming are disappointing, but the long lens and high resolution are both tempting, as is the price.
  • Pros: Inexpensive; Long zoom; Good macro performance.
  • Cons: Bulky; Some washed-out colours.

  • Summary: If you want an expansive (not to mention normally expensive) lens reach but don't want your wallet to take anywhere near as big a financial hit as the best current examples of the bridge camera in the much flashier but way pricier Fuji XS-1 or HS30, then the Olympus SP-620UZ is worthy of...

Olympus SP-620UZ

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.
  • 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.
  • Pros: wysoka rozdzielczość obrazu (ale bardzo mocno
  • Cons: słabe odwzorowanie barw i dynamika, brak optycznego zoomu podczas rejestracji wideo, przeciętny wyświetlacz
