Enormous zoom range, which starts with a true wide-angle view. Mechanical and digital image stabilization. Some innovative ISO and burst-mode functions. Helpful guide mode.
Some issues with video capabilities. Some controls could be better designed, especially the zoom level. No articulating LCD. Mediocre boot time. A bit pricey.

Think 7.1 megapixels isnt enough? The 18x zoom eliminates the need for the extra megapixels. The UZ in the SP-550 UZ’s name stands for “ultra zoom,” and in this camera’s case, we’re talking 18x - that’s an amazing amo...
One of the longest zoom lenses you can find in a point-and-shoot camera.
Clumsy method to alter aperture and shutter speed.

Announced just before PMA in January 2007 the SP-550UZ is the first serious attempt by Olympus to take back some ground in the super zoom sector, a sector it almost single-handedly created back in 2000 with the legendary C-2100UZ, but has since strugg...

You have to be careful when reviewing cameras that you take a realistic view of how the typical buyer will actually use it, and what they can realistically expect it to do. I say this because the SP-550UZ gave us one of the most time-consuming, frustr...
