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.
