Product Information

product description

Get up close and personal in a whole new way. With the world’s first wide 18x optical zoom, the Olympus SP-550 UZ accepts no limits, bringing photographers closer to far-away subjects. Capture candid street scenes from a discreet distance, or snap the details of a football game from way up in the stands – then even use the wide angle lens to see and shoot more within closer range: This model’s focal length spans an amazing 28-504mm (35mm camera equivalent)!

Enjoy double protection against blur with Dual Image Stabilisation. Even at high magnifications or when capturing fast-moving objects, this technology ensures results are significantly sharper. Packing 7.1 Megapixels of detail-capturing power, the SP-550 UZ opens up a new realm of creative possibility – because if it’s in your life, it’s in your Olympus SP-550 UZ.
