Olympus SP-100EE Hands-on Review

See exactly what the new Olympus SP-100EE compact camera looks like in the flesh, and read our first hands-on impressions.

Check out our extensive hands-on gallery of photos of the Olympus SP-100EE compact camera, which intriguingly features the world's first dot aiming point on a camera.

The Olympus SP-100EE is a well specified super-zoom lens, with a 50x, 24-1200mm lens, sensible 16 megapixel resolution, electronic viewfinder, 7.1fps burst shooting, and 60fps Full HD movies, all for £349.99 in the UK when it launches in March.

All of that aside, what's most interesting about the SP-100EE isn't apparent until you slide the Dot Sight switch on the top of the camera. A built-in sight pops up instantaneously for shooting, with a red cross-hair projected to make it easier to reframe the image at the more extreme telephoto focal lengths when the subject moves, a common issue with super-zooms. It's one of those things that's much easier to explain in practice, but it really did seem to make a difference in our brief hands-on time with the camera. Kudos to Olympus for thinking outside the box.

The new SP-100EE is an unusual take on the run-of-the-mill super-zoom template, but one that we're definitely looking forward to reviewing soon.

  1. If one of the most innovative features of the camera is the pop-up dot view thingie, why on earth don't you just show this feature in your photos?

    This makes the article look very poor, not to mention the dirty thumb marks shown on the camera LCD on the photos...

  2. txoni, what's wrong with showing some pics of the entire camera instead of just the pop-up view "thingie"...lol. some one obviously missed the thumb prints. i don't see how this makes the article look poor. it's more of a quick look rather than an article. i'm lookig forward to the full review,"thingie" and all
