Olympus SP-500 UZ – Review @ Steve’sDigicams

Steve’s Digicams have posted their review of the Olympus SP-500 UZ, a 6 megapixel digital camera with a huge 10x optical zoom and 2.5″ LCD screen.

Olympus SP500 UZ

“I was very pleased with our sample images when using the SHQ image quality mode. The 10x optical zoom lens offers incredible versatility in composing shoots, covering an equivalent focal range of 38 – 380mm. The wide angle extreme will afford nice landscape and interior shots, while its telephoto end will bring distant subjects up close and personal. I noticed moderate barrel distortion at full wide angle as well as slight pincushioning at the telephoto end. CA (Chromatic Aberration) or purple fringing was present in many of our samples, around brightly lit objects. ..Bottom line – with great image quality, good performance, a versatile and powerful zoom range, and a multitude of exposure modes, the Olympus SP500UZ is quite the compact “super zoom”. It will make an excellent choice for any consumer in the market for a 6-megapixel digicam that has plenty of telephoto capabilities. With an average retail cost of about $379, it offers an outstanding value and is sure to be one of Olympus’ more popular models this year. “
