Olympus SP 610UZ review

 

The Olympus SP 610UZ fills the gap between the SP 600UZ and SP 800UZ with its 22x optical zoom lens.

The Olympus SP 610UZ is available for £169 (you can get a better deal if you search) and is a very good deal considering the features it offers. It is a good travel companion for casual photographers. It doesn’t have a lot of manual settings to play...

Olympus - SP-610UZ

 

Olympus has recently release a spate of new digital cameras. We recently investigated the VG-130, which is essentially an entry-level model for those new to compact digitals, giving them plenty of features for less than £100. ...

If you're a seasoned explorer who's maybe not ready to own a complex DSLR, the Olympus SP-610UZ is relatively inexpensive, has an excellent 22x zoom and plenty of creative features, albeit mostly menu driven. BEST POINT: Massive 22x optical zoom....

Olympus SP-610UZ review

 

22x optical zoom, HD video capture and 3D still image capture all combine in a compact body. But how does the Olympus SP-610UZ measure up on the testing bench?

Large focal range, large LCD screen, HD video capture, compact size

Half-baked 3D implementation, poor build quality, no Raw capture

22x optical zoom; Value for money; Good LCD screen; Super Macro mode; In-camera Panoramic stitching
