The low-priced SP-500 delivers strong image quality, long battery life, and a powerful zoom. But it lacks image stabilization.

While the SP-500 is not a poor camera, it certainly does nothing to distinguish itself. As an ultra-zoom camera it definitely lacks image stabilization which limits the use of its otherwise good lens. Even though the Olympus SP-500 produces sharp ima...
