ONE LENS. INFINITE VERSATILITY.

The bright plumage of a hummingbird. Your daughter’s first goal. A blazing guitar solo – note for note. Capturing super-sharp images and smooth Full 1080 60p HD video from a distance is as easy as point and shoot with the new Olympus SP-100. Innovative features include the world’s first dot sight for easier tele focusing, best-in-class sensor and image processing technology, an electronic viewfinder and control options usually found on high-end DSLRs. This is the camera you need if you love shooting sports, wildlife and concerts.

Olympus SP-100

From Wide Angle to Extreme Distances, This Lens Delivers
Carrying multiple lenses to cover all shooting situations isn’t always feasible. With the SP-100 and its 50x zoom (24-1200mm equivalent), you don’t have to. This optically superior lens gives you the ideal zoom range, enabling you to capture anything from wide-angle panoramic views to long-distance close-ups with amazing sharpness and detail. You can even grab super-smooth Full HD videos (1080p 60p), whether you’re in Section ZZ or a duck blind at dawn.

Unique Dot Sight Simplifies Telephoto Shooting
The restricted field of view at full zoom makes it a challenge to locate and focus on the subject you want to capture – and when you’re shooting a fast-moving critter or the dancers on that stage w-a-a-a-y across the concert hall, time is of the essence. The SP-100 features the world’s first dot sight, a red light that is projected onto a glass panel under the flash to help you quickly and accurately position the camera on your subject when the lens is extended.

An Electronic Viewfinder at This Price? Only with the SP-100
Sometimes you just want to shoot it old-school. With the SP-100’s EVF, you can adjust menu settings, review key image metrics (exposure, white balance, art filters) and, most important, compose the shot without taking your eye off the viewfinder, just like your dad did back in the day.

Full Exposure and Focus Control Maximize Your Options
With the SP-100, you’re in control. For quick shooting in telephoto mode, use the focus button (conveniently located right next to the zoom lever) to lock in the autofocus or activate either Manual Focus or the Focus Limit feature, which offers three AF modes: Aperture AF, Infinity AF and Close-up AF. You can also manually adjust exposure parameters like aperture and shutter speed to fine-tune your images.

Unprecedented Creative Tools in a Point-and-Shoot
Taking a cue from its big brother, the Stylus 1, the SP-100 incorporates seven Art Filters that make it easy for you to get creative. Effects like Grainy Film, Pin Hole and Soft Focus can be applied right in the camera to turn basic shots into evocative images. Also available are four Magic Filters (including Fish Eye and Sparkle) and five Picture Filters (among them Vivid, Muted and Monotone), which enable you to adjust color saturation.

Faster and Smarter Thanks to Olympus iHS Technology
Combine a powerful, newly developed DSLR-quality TruePic™ VII image processor and a best-in-class BSI CMOS sensor, and you’ve got a camera that provides blazing fast autofocus, superb low-light performance and accurate subject and scene recognition (thanks to the enhanced iAUTO feature). It adds up to iHS – Intelligent, High Sensitivity, High Speed – and the SP-100 has it, to help you nail every shot with dramatically improved image quality.

Ban the Blur with Lens-Shift Image Stabilization
Maybe your target – say, a beautiful dragonfly – is flitting around in stops and starts. Maybe your hands are a little shaky because you haven’t eaten anything since breakfast. Doesn’t matter…the SP-100’s lens-shift image sensor stabilization system, high ISO sensitivity and blink-of-an-eye shutter speeds work together seamlessly, enabling you to capture crisp, clear images even if the subject (or your camera) are moving.

I am a great fan of Olympus cameras.

Style Name: SP-100 (Black)
Got my camera today direct from Olympus. Been a long time Olympus owner and have owned many cameras, a couple of which were earlier Ultra-zoom models. My friends have SLR bodies with multiple lenses in order to cover the same range as the Ultra-zoom models on one lens. For $400 I have a camera that goes from 28mm to 1200mm+ and I don't have to fumble around with multiple lenses to do it. With built in Macro and Super-macro, this camera is everything between a small microscope and a small telescope.

Things to get used to:
Seems built a bit light, however most of the body is composite nylon and polycarbonate. Strong as all get out, but really light.
Dials/wheels can seem a bit flimsy to the touch, but that again is because of the composite materials.

Really cool new features:
Aperture priority - Been asking for this for years. Sometimes you need to manually set depth of field instead of trying to trick the electronics of the camera.
Manual Shutter - previous models could not do long exposures. This one is not totally manual, however the available open-shutter exposures are adequate for 90% of my needs.
Red-dot sight - At high magnification, trying to follow a moving object is darned near impossible. With the red-dot sight, so long as the dot is on the object, it is in the camera's field of view.
Side mounted telephoto control - In addition to the thumb lever on the shutter release, there is a second telephoto control on the left side of the lens. This feels much more like an SLR experience.
Holster case - Olympus makes a great holster style case made just for this camera. Great investment.

I am already in love with this camera and can't wait to get out in the field and start shooting. BTW - See my review on the SanDisk Extreme 64GB SDXC memory card. It is working in my camera perfectly and gives me over 7 hours of 1080 video or about 15,000 full resolution photo capacity.

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. The laser (eagle eye) zoom aid is nothing short of phenomenal in it's implementation and usefulness. Designed mostly for outdoor use when you are zooming beyond the 20X range, you will find it much easier in capturing action photos and will eliminate the need to zoom wide to find the object you are tracking. It works just like a rifle laser sight and can even be adjusted for fine calibration with an adjustment knob next to the eye cup. The camera is very well built, lightweight and constructed of high quality plastics with a carbon fiber look and feel. The Controls are solid and the assignable function button and selection wheel allow you to customize the camera for your own personal shooting preference. I owned a Canon SX50 and can compare the image quality of photos taken against the Olympus SP100. The Olympus images are very sharp and clear and noise is kept under control up to 800 iso. Color rendition and white balance are accurate with vibrant colors throughout. Have not tested video and macro capabilities yet but will update in a later review. The camera is easy to grip and hold with plenty of grip texture and having the additional zoom control on the side of the lens barrel is also a nice feature. Olympus has clear winner on their hands in the ultra competitive long zoom digicam segment.

Style Name: SP-100 (Black)
Suddenly, a Glut of 60x Bridge Cameras

When the Canon SX-50 appeared, it was largely heralded as an industry-leading small-sensor bridge camera, with the its massive 1200mm, 35mm focal length optical zoom. Since then, similar extremely long reach cameras have appeared from Sony, Fujifilm, Samsung, Olympus, Panasonic, and Nikon. Even the latest offerings of larger pocket cameras feature 24x to 30x zoom, such as the Olympus Stylus SH-50 iHS (24x), the Canon PowerShot SX700 HS (30x, 25-750mm 35mm equivalent), the 30x Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS40, and the 30x Nikon Coolpix S9700.

It is easy to be misled about what a "SuperZoom" is supposed to be. PC Magazine has the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-RX10 classified as a "SuperZoom," despite its 8.3x (24-200mm) diminutive focal length range. While you might feel the camera is super, as is its price, its zoom range is clearly not.

As long as you don't expect miracles, given lots of light all of these cameras capture good to very good images, so long as you accept that small-sensors, though vastly improved, are a severe limitation on what is often called "critical image quality." At moderate zoom lengths, most do no better than many pocket cameras that have the same, or similar sensors and fairly dim lenses. It shouldn't be a great surprise, for the sensor size and lens brightness have a lot to do with what can be done.

Yet, for outdoor and wildlife use, the appeal of getting in really close is undeniable. Faster shooting performance, longer battery life, RAW capture, and a larger, more stable camera in the hands is part of the appeal. To date, the only camera that I'm thoroughly pleased with in the majority of shooting circumstances isn't a super-dooper mega-zoom: it is the Panasonic FZ-200, that offers a constant F2.

Style Name: SP-100 (Black)
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. The only drawbacks so far that I've found after a week of pretty heavy use are the time consuming manual focus, and the fact that the battery has no locator on it and will fit in the slot 4 different ways (really!). I've been a fan and user of Olympus cameras since 1979 and still am even with the aforementioned oversight. All in all this camera is a lot of bang for the bucks! Thanks Oly!
