OLYMPUS Stylus SP-100 Wide Angle Digital Camera

If shooting sports, wildlife or concerts is your passion, the SP-100 is the camera for you. Advanced features include a versatile 50X zoom, a best-in-class back-lit CMOS sensor, the latest TruePic™ VII image processor, focus and exposure control options more common in DSLRs and an electronic viewfinder – all in one refined package.

World's First Camera with a Built-In Dot-Sight*

The restricted field of view at full zoom makes it challenging to locate and focus on long-distance subjects. The SP-100 features the world's first built-in dot sight*, a red light that's projected onto a glass panel under the flash to help you quickly and accurately zero in on your subject when the lens is extended.

Super Sharp, Super Zoom

If shooting sports, wildlife or concerts is your passion, the SP-100 is the camera for you. Advanced features include a versatile 50X zoom, a best-in-class back-lit CMOS sensor, the latest TruePic™ VII image processor, focus and exposure control options more common in DSLRs and an electronic viewfinder – all in one refined package.

Accessorize Your SP-100

The SP-100 is a marvel of compact digital technology. You don't need extra lenses, or an external dot sight apparatus, or a computer with image manipulation software. You may, however, want a nice case for your new favorite camera, or extra batteries, so we put together some nice accessories to complete your kit.

Lens Power Optimized

Carrying multiple lenses to cover all shooting situations isn't always feasible. With the SP-100 and its 24 - 1200mm equivalent zoom, you don't have to. This optically superior lens has an opening bright f2.9 aperture for crisp images in low light, and captures everything from wide-angle panoramic views to long-distance close-ups in astonishing detail – throughout the 50X optical zoom range.

High-Level Functionality Eye-Level Shooting

The familiar comfort of eye-level composition combined with advanced digital technology – that's the SP-100's EVF in a nutshell. All the shooting information you need (e.g., exposure, white balance, Art Filters) is displayed, especially useful when bright daylight obscures the LCD monitor. Perfect for photographers who like a little old-school with cutting edge.

Fine-Tune Your Focus

With the SP-100, you're in control. For quick shooting in telephoto mode, use the convenient focus button to lock in the autofocus or activate either Manual Focus or the Focus Limit feature, which offers three AF modes: Aperture AF, Infinity AF and Close-up AF. A full range of shooting modes (P/A/S/M) is also available.

Faster & Smarter

The SP-100's DSLR-quality TruePic VII™ image processor and best-in-class BSI CMOS sensor deliver blazing fast autofocus, superb low-light performance and quick start-up time. We call it iHS – Intelligent, High Sensitivity, High Speed – and it translates to dramatically improved image quality.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat camera overall!

Pros: The SP-100 camera is another great Olympus innovation. It gives a good balance between macro and high powered zoom ability. The picture quality is really good and the autofocus and image stabilization both work well and fast. It does a pretty fair job in low light especially in manual mode. The dot sight works well when in high zoom and can be "sighted in" via the wheel on the right side of the viewfinder.

Cons: The only drawbacks so far that I've found after a week of pretty heavy use are the time consuming manual focus, and the fact that the battery has no locator on it and will fit in the slot 4 different ways (really!). I've been a fan and user of Olympus cameras since 1979 and still am even with the aforementioned oversight. All in all this camera is a lot of bang for the bucks! Thanks Oly!

Other Thoughts: Olympus has been a pioneer in the bridge camera long zoom lens digicam segment and their experience is evident in the Olympus SP100 EE 50X optical zoom digital camera. The laser (eagle eye) zoom aid is nothing short of phenomenal in it's implementation and usefulness. Designed mostly for outdoor use when you are zooming beyond the 20X range, you fill find it much easier in capturing action photos and will eliminate the need to zoom wide to find the object you are tracking. It works just like a rifle laser sight and can even be adjusted for fine calibration with an adjustment knob next to the eye cup. The camera is very well built, lightweight and constructed of high quality plastics with a carbon fiber look and feel. The Controls are solid and the assignable function button and selection wheel allow you to customize the camera for your own personal shooting preference. I owned a Canon SX50 and can compare the image quality of photos taken against the Olympus SP100. The Olympus images are very sharp and clear and noise is kept under control up to 800 iso. Color rendition and white balance are accurate with vibrant colors throughout. Have not tested video and macro capabilities yet but will update in a later review. The camera is easy to grip and hold with plenty of grip texture and having the additional zoom control on the side of the lens barrel is also a nice feature. Olympus has clear winner on their hands in the ultra competitive long zoom digicam segment.
