Olympus Stylus SP-100ee Preview *pre-production firmware
Olympus has introduced the Stylus SP-100, a compact camera with a 16MP CMOS sensor with a 24-1200mm F2.9 - F6.5 (35mm equiv) 50x optical zoom which comes with a built-in dot-sight, which is a world's first at the point of this preview, that enables ease of tracking moving subjects when the lens is zoomed in. To make long zoom focusing easier, the SP-100 also features a focus limiter, which lets the user choose what distances the camera searches.
The dot-sight pops up under the flash, the switch to flip out the the red dot is just beside the flash pop up.
1. ISO range 125-6400 (extends to 12800)
2. Eleven creative art filters available and can be used when shooting movies
3. Full HD video at 60fps, slow mo videos at 240 and 120 fps
4. Optical image stabilizer
On the directional pad, only 3 directions have symbols indicated the settings, but all 4 of the directions play an important role in setting camera settings. I've had problems reaching the rec button which is located on the back of the camera but I have big and somewhat inflexible thumb. I'll much prefer the button to be on the top near the shutter release button.
