Olympus SP-510 UZ

Posted by: Ilse Jurrien Wednesday 23rd, August 2006

With an Olympus SP-510 UZ by their side, photographers never need to miss the action again. Thanks to its powerful 10x optical zoom lens they’ll be able to reach out to distant subjects and bring them in for closer scrutiny. The 7.1 million pixel resolution means that every detail will be there to see. Should anyone need to delve deeper still, in 3.0 million pixel resolution, a Fine Zoom option can increase the magnification of the optical zoom to 15x. Nothing escapes the gaze of the SP-510 UZ, even when the sun starts to set. Olympus BrightCapture Technology comes into play boosting maximum ISO value to 4000 allowing the camera to deliver great results even in low-light conditions.
