Olympus SP-600UZ

 

This is one of the cheaper digital cameras offering extra zoom power. As you might expect I found some picture quality issues as Olympus have pushed the boundaries and kept the price down.

1GB of built in memory - built in manual

Olympus SP-600UZ review

 

As with many things in life, expectations play a big part in whether you'll like the Olympus SP-600UZ. The two main attractions are its wide-angle lens with 15x zoom and its price; it can easily be found for less than $200. The rest of its features,...

Nice features, design for its price; 1GB of built-in storage; one-touch movie recording.

Soft, noisy photos above ISO 200; long shutter lag; ineffective image stabilization.

The Olympus SP-600UZ is easy on your wallet for a megazoom, but its photos and performance require a lot of compromise.

Olympus SP600 UZ

 

A budget-priced long-zoom digicam for everyday snapshooters who want to record 720p HD video clips.The 12-megapixel SP-600 UZ is the lower-priced model of two super-zoom digicams announced by Olympus in February. Built and priced to attract bargain...

As in the SP-800 UZ, the maximum resolution for video clips is 1280 x 720 pixels and scanning is progressive. The widely-used MPEG-4 compression and AVC/H.264 codec are the format of choice. Movie capture is triggered by pressing the Movie button on...

Olympus SP600UZ

 

Love the look and feel of this camera - feels like a manageable sized SLR. I feel photography is as much about the relationship you have with your camera ie. the ergonomics, and feeling comfortable with it, as it is about what you're shooting. This...

I wish cameras would still come with a full printed manual/guide, so that I could pick it up for a few minutes read at a time, without having to be near my computer. Also, having to purchase a separate case is a bit of a pain. I'd rather it came with it.

Most features are excellent. Nice design, good to hold.

Pop up flash could do with a release button. Menu and features not easy to follow or set.
