Pre-Photokina 2008: Olympus has also announced a second 20x (26-520mm equiv) zoom-lensed 'ultrazoom' camera that appears to be a slightly down-sized version of the SP-570 launched in January. The 10MP SP-565 has a 2.5 ” LCD (the SP-570 has a 2.7"), reduced movie frame rate and ships with a MicroSD adaptor, but otherwise looks very similar.
The Olympus SP-565 UZ: A massive 20x wide optical zoom for ultimate control
Minimum size for maximum brilliance
London, 25 August 2008 – Raise your photographic potential with the world leader in the ultrazoom category. Featuring a 20x wide zoom lens (26-520mm*), the affordable Olympus SP-565 UZ lets you shoot like a pro without having to carry around tons of equipment. Zoom in ultra-close to any subject, or back out for an ultra-wide shot – all with a single lens. The integration of Dual Image Stabilisation also ensures protection against camera shake. Photos are stored to internal memory, xD-Picture Card or – thanks to a bundled attachment – microSD Card. The Olympus SP-565 UZ with a 20x wide optical zoom will be available in late September 2008 for an RRP of £349.99
See the world like you thought you never could. An incredible 20x wide zoom (26-520mm*) brings you right into the heart of the action. Capture the excitement of a football match from the sidelines, yet feel the immediacy in your results as if you had been right there on the field. Using the 5x digital zoom and optional TCON-17 Teleconverter (with CLA-10 Conversion Lens Adapter) even more is possible. How much more? Up to a massive focal length equivalent of 4420mm! And with the integration of Dual Image Stabilisation – combining both a mechanical and digital image stabiliser – results come out reliably sharp. The 10 Megapixel SP-565 UZ also presents users with flexibility for wide-angle shooting. This is not only perfect for capturing sweeping landscapes and group photos, but also for getting a wider perspective when photographing interiors or other architecture.
Sequential shooting at up to 13.5fps** lets every facet of a scene be faithfully recorded as it happens. And with the ingenious Pre-Capture mode, recording of pictures can start even before the shutter is fully pressed. In addition, Pre-Capture Movie mode is also on board – providing the same advantage over the clock, but in movie format. For ultra-close-ups from as little as just 1cm, the Super Macro Mode also gives photographers the chance to explore a subject’s every detail.
Creative control and exceptional results
On top of 23 scene modes covering the most common shooting situations, the SP-565 UZ also offers manual control. P/A/S/M options give users free rein to pursue their creative inspiration. And no matter which mode is chosen, the TruePic III image processer ensures best results. Advanced Face Detection Technology guarantees that human subjects come out optimally focused and exposed. Up to 16 faces can be detected in a single scene. Shadow Adjustment Technology, meanwhile, recognises dark areas in compositions and adjusts accordingly to return the most realistic image possible.Low light photography capabilities are enhanced through high ISO settings and BrightCapture Technology. The latter also returns bright views on the 6.4cm/2.5” HyperCrystal LCD. On top of a built-in flash, extra illumination – and extraordinary flexibility – can be obtained thanks to compatibility with the Olympus FL-50R and FL-36R wireless flash units.
Perfect for all users
In addition to the internal memory, compatibility with both xD-Picture Cards and microSD Card (due to bundled attachment) gives users a range of storage options. Wearers of spectacles will appreciate the viewfinder’s dioptric correction facility. And with 39 available languages, photographers are almost always able to operate this camera in their native tongue.
Packed with features that support a creative photographic experience, the Olympus SP-565 UZ delivers ultrazoom performance in a compact and affordable package. It will become available late September 2008.
