The new Olympus SP-550 UZ is a bridge-style digital camera with an 18x zoom lens equivalent to 28-504mm on a 35mm camera - yes, you read that correctly, an 18x zoom, currently the biggest on the market. An optical image stabilisation system and ISO range of 50-5000 promise to counteract the inevitable camera-shake that occurs when hand-holding the SP550 at telephoto settings. A full range of creative exposure modes are offered, plus the Olympus SP-550 has 7.1 megapixels, macro mode of 1cm and a 2.5 inch LCD. Olympus have definitely given the SP550 UZ some amazing specifications on paper, but have they translated into an effective digital camera? Read our latest review to find out.
