That said, here are my main thoughts on the positive side. There are of course, many features beyond these, but these are what stand out for me:
► Great and relatively quiet zoom. Having a zoom that go 50x optical and then all the way to 100x when you add the digital zoom adds an extra dimension to enjoying the places you visit. You not only use the camera to take picture, but you are able to use your camera like pair of binoculars. Check the moon picture I took at full 100x (50 optical and then 100x include digital zoom).
► Great Autofocus. Unlike an SLR, where you have manual focus, you're pretty much at the mercy of this cameras ability to quickly focus on objects whether close or far. I found this to be one of this camera's strengths over the Coolpix L830 which, to be fair, is close to $200 less. The Olympus snaps to focus with enough consistency that you don't really even think about it. It's worth the extra cost because the extra time a slower camera to find it's focus, is often going a perfect moment lost.
► Dot Sight is cool, but a bit over-hyped in order to differentiate it from competitors in the Super-Zoom category. I though this was going to be a ''Wow!'' feature, but it is only if you do a lot photography or videos of distant moving objects. What's more is that it forces you to use the LCD monitor, which, is counter productive in bright sunlight. This is a great feature for bird watchers and people taking sports action shots, but I doubt most people will use it very often.
✗ I was really disappointed that there's no tilting LCD monitor. It seems it should standard in a bridge camera which such advanced features. As well, many DSLRs have them.
✗ No Wifi file transfer. Many lower cost smaller point and shoots have this.
✗ Color distortion and noise at higher zoom. I had the opportunity to compare the photos taken by this camera along side those taking by a Fujifilm S-1. At the higher levels of zoom the Olympus had a weird bluish tint and along with a lot of noise. The Fujifilm's pictures had more natural hues and, as well, showed finer detail.
All in all - the Olympus SP-100 is a worthy choice in the crowded Super Zoom / Bridge Camera category. But there are trade-offs and feature omissions that I'm not willing to do without.
A few months later, found a problem. Flashing orange camera image while trying to photo a dark subject. Flash would not fire in a pitch black room. Returned the camera to Olympus who did an incomplete analysis and returned the camera in same condition. Their suggestion is that I not use the iAuto mode. I should use the P mode. I'm pretty sure I paid full price which should have included a working iAuto mode.
I'm not a professional photographer so have been very happy with getting some nice moon shots. Even got Jupiter with it.
Only one problem... and I should have contacted them about it. A week after I got it, the LCD screen cracked for no apparent reason. It was in a case, not in extreme temps and certainly not damaged or dropped. Just odd that it seemed to crack for no reason.
Guess I didn't feel like a hassle & it is my backup camera so I can live with the crack.
The red dot Eagle Eye... not so sure on that. Hard for me to get moving objects with it but like I said, I'm no pro so this could be a "user problem". I've seen photos posted that came out nice- maybe just a learning curve.
Charge stays a long time, zoom is great, easy to use. Overall happy with the thing. Aside from the weird crack for no reason, it works for me!
It has a tripod attachment and I have done low light and night photos with good results.
