Olympus Stylus SP-100 with 50x Super-Zoom; Specs and Price
Olympus has introduced yet another model to its portfolio but this time with a whopping 50x optical zoom lens. The new camera is called Olympus Stylus SP-100 which the company claims world’s first camera to feature a built-in dot-sight, enabling you to track moving subject.
The so called ”eagle-eye” dot-sight is located just above the viewfinder which projects the subject onto a semi-transparent mirror with a wide-angle view. According to the company, the dot-sight immediately pops up to easily track any object without having to adjust zoom reducing your work while shooting. And the camera is designed with care to reduce contact between the photographer’s face and the camera body which the company claims will offer an ease of shooting.
In terms of other specifications, the Olympus Olympus SP-100 has a 1/2.3-inch 16-megapixel CMOS sensor with a TruePic VII processor and will offer a 7fps burst speed with a small 6 frame buffer. The camera also has a 24-1200 (50mm equivalent) f/2.9-6.5 lens, a 3-inch, 460K-dot LCD, 920K-dot EVF and can deliver 60p full HD video recording at a speed of 60 frames per second and a high-speed recording of 640×480 or 320×240 resolution at 120fps and 240fps respectively.
The Olympus SP-100 will also be offered with an optional Toshiba FlashAir card that lets you connect the camera with your smartphone or PC over WiFi enabling you to easily share and import photos.
The new Olympus SP-100 is priced at $399.99 and release date is set to March 2014.
