$Good Bang For The Bucks$

  • Excerpt: The SP-100 camera is another great Olympus innovation. It gives a good balance between macro and high powered zoom ability. The picture quality is really good and the autofocus and image stabilization both work well and fast. It does a pretty fair job in low light especially in manual mode. The dot sight works well when in high zoom and can be "sighted in" via the wheel on the right side of the viewfinder. I've been a fan and user of Olympus cameras forever.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Small / Compact

  • Pros: Easy to use, Excellent zoom, Light Weight, Sharp pictures, Very good video
  • Cons: Eye View Dark

  • Excerpt: Wanted to upgrade from a small point and shoot. This fits the bill perfectly! So far it's easy to use with lots of features than can be used, or not. Lots of goodies to explore on this camera.

Eagle Eye Zoom Olympus SP-100 Well Worth The Wait

15 May 2014
  • Summary: Olympus has been a pioneer in the bridge camera long zoom lens digicam segment and their experience is evident in the Olympus SP100 EE 50X optical zoom digital camera.
