The Olympus SP-510 has full exposure flexibility with Program, Aperture-Priority, Shutter-Priority and full Manual modes, plus 21 Scene Modes to automate the most common picture-taking situations. You can display a histogram or grid lines. Movies are recorded with sound at 640x480 @ 30fps.
Digital Image Stabilization (DIS) favours a high ISO (up to ISO 1600; ISO 2500 and 4000 at 3MP resolution) and fast shutter speed to reduce or eliminate blurred shots caused by camera shake and subject movement.
Bright Capture Technology helps you frame shots on the LCD in dimly lit conditions. Coupled with Available Light Portrait, Indoors, Candle, and Image Blur scene modes, this enables you to view and capture low-light shots.
Perfect Fix editing allows you to brighten up dark images, reduce red-eye and eliminate blurriness (using Digital Image Stabilization Edit) after the shot is taken right in the camera.
It comes with 21MB of internal memory and runs on 4 AA batteries which can take approx. 630 shots (CIPA Standard). Shutter speed range is from 1/1000 sec. – 15 sec., and there is a Bulb shutter speed. There is an electronic viewfinder (EVF).
Optional accessories include the WCON-07 Wide Conversion Lens (0.7x) and the TCON-17 (1.7x) Telephoto Conversion Lens (1.7x); Lens Adapter Tube CLA-1 and 43-55mm Step-Up Ring required for both lenses.
The Olympus SP-510 Ultra Zoom should appeal to serious amateur photographers who desire an ultra zoom with a high degree of control.
