Olympus SP-570 UZIt’s super-zoom week here at PhotographyBLOG, as we review the Olympus SP-570 UZ today, the Nikon Coolpix P80 on Wednesday, and the Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 on Friday.

The Olympus SP-570 UZ has the longest optical zoom lens of any camera on the market, an amazing 20x model equivalent to 26-520mm. That’s slightly longer than competing models from Panasonic and Fujifilm, and the equivalent of carrying around at least 3 DSLR lenses, yet still weighing less than 500g. As you’d expect the SP-570UZ offers image stabilisation to help ensure sharp photos at those massive focal lengths, and there’s also an extensive ISO range of 64-6400. Other key features of the SP570 UZ include a 10 megapixel sensor, 2.7 inch LCD screen, macro mode of 1cm and full range of creative exposure modes (P/A/S/M). Priced at around £275 / $400, is the new Olympus SP-570 UZ the best superzoom camera and a viable alternative to a DSLR? Read our review to find out…
