Olympus SP-720UZ Reviews

Ephotozine reviews the Olympus SP-720UZ and writes;
“The SP-720UZ is at the cheaper end and image quality is good if you shoot at ISO 100 and 200. From ISO 400 upwards image quality becomes poor. It has a number of useful features, including high-speed shooting, panoramas and is supplied with a lens cap and camera strap.”

Imaging-resource reviews the Olympus SP-720UZ and writes;
“The SP-720UZ uses a iESP Auto contrast detection autofocusing by default, with the ability to switch to spot AF if desired. An AF assist illuminator is included, helping the camera to focus on nearby objects in difficult lighting conditions.”
