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
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.
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...
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
Excerpt: Le compact Olympus SP-620UZ est un bel appareil photo numérique. Plus gros que la moyenne, il se distingue par une conception optique plus simple que les concurrents, au prix il est vrai d’un encombrement plus important.
Pros: Stabilisation exemplaire, Grip bien pratique
Cons: Montée en sensibilité délicate, Poids, Alimentation par pile
