Olympus have just revealed the SP-810UZ Ultra Zoom camera. As it’s name suggests, it’s got a mighty 36x wide-angle zoom, probably letting you snap an ant from atop a tower block if our unscientific calculations are correct. Which they probably aren’t.
But that’s still some crazy zoom tech going on, and with Dual Image Stabilisation and enhanced ISO sensitivity, you’re going to be able to take pin-sharp pictures from miles away.
Auto-focus tracking for fast moving scenes is accompanied by Advanced Face Detection and a “Beauty Mode”, which should help you look your best even on the roughest of Monday mornings. 10 art filters to adjust the image can be applied, while there’s also room for super-wide panaroma stitched shots too.
Eye-Fi card compatibility and optional 3D still shooting modes round off a feature rich snapper.
Available in black or silver, you can grab the Olympus SP-810UZ Ultra Zoom from September for £229.99.
