Olympus SP-100EE review

 

Olympus's 'dot sight' helps long-distance composition

The SP-100EE's dot sight is an interesting innovation and could be useful if you're into wildlife photography. The maximum aperture is f/2.9 at the wideangle end of the zoom range, which is good, though this does drop to f/6.5 at full zoom.

Olympus Stylus SP-100 review

 

For a while there, it looked like Olympus was giving up on bridge-style long-zoom cameras, basically just going through the motions with its last few SP-series models. With the Stylus SP-100 (also called the SP-100EE), though, Olympus stands to steal...

Thanks to its unique dot sight, the Olympus Stylus SP-100 makes it easy to track and shoot subjects at full zoom -- something other cameras with similar 50x zoom lenses struggle with.

Though the dot sight is cool, the camera is missing several features that competing models have, such built-in Wi-Fi, a high-res tilting LCD, or raw capture.

The Olympus Stylus SP-100 is a problem-solver camera, giving zoom fiends a simple -- and clever -- way to keep athletes, wildlife, and other targets in your sights.

Olympus Stylus SP-100

 

The Olympus Stylus SP-100 bridge-style camera can tackle any scene thanks to a 50x lens, but it doesn't include Wi-Fi, and image quality isn't quite where it should be.

50x zoom lens. Fast focus. Red dot sight framing aid. Good high ISO images. EVF. 1080p60 video.

Images have a waxy quality. Lacks Wi-Fi. Lacks EVF eye sensor. No hot shoe. External battery charger not included.

Unlike most new cameras, the SP-100 doesn't have Wi-Fi. If you're not interested in sharing images while on the go, this isn't a major concern. You can opt for a camera with Wi-Fi; the Fuji S1 has it built in. You can also use an Eye-Fi Mobi if you'd...

Very large camera body; at full telephoto setting SP-100 measures almost 8 inches in depth ; Images almost seem to be over-processed ; Some chromatic aberration in high contrast photos ; Images shot at full telephoto aren't as sharp as they could be ;...

Considering the Olympus SP-100 ultra-zoom camera has a starting price around $400, most of this model's features are below average compared to similarly priced models, including its overall image quality. This camera's advanced shooting modes are...

Olympus SP-100 Review

 

Ultrazoom cameras bring the action right up close, just where you want it -- but only if you can keep track of your subject. Doing so can be a challenge. Look away from the screen or viewfinder even briefly, and you can easily lose track of the...

Priced at US$400, the Olympus SP-100 Eagle Eye ships in black only, and is available from March 2014.
