Olympus SP-500 UZ – Review @ DigicamReview

Digicamreview.co.uk reviewed the Olympus SP-500UZ a 6.0 megapixel digital camera with a huge 10x zoom (38-380mm equivalent), and a 2.5″ LCD Screen. They wrote;


“Image Quality: Image quality is very good, the images have very good colour, with good contrast and detail, with fairly low noise except for the higher ISO settings. Images were slightly soft straight from the camera and could benefit from sharpening. Purple fringing was quite low, as was red-eye. The camera did a good job focusing the majority of the time, with low light focusing aided by the focus assist lamp. I did not notice vignetting in photos, nor did I notice barrel or pincushion distortion. There is a very good range of image sizes, and a good choice of compression options (including RAW mode). Auto white balance and metering, and exposure seemed to be good to very good. The camera gives very good control over image quality – selecting different picture modes allows allows you to change the saturation, contrast and sharpness. The lack of image stabilisation could cause problems for some people, especially in low light or at the long end of the zoom. (8/10)”
