Olympus has announced a replacement for its SP-560 UZ camera. Like its predecessor, the SP-570 UZ is a record breaker, this time with a wide angle 20X zoom lens.
The new 26-520mm (F2.8- F4.5, 35mm equivalent) lens has once again raised the bar in this market segment and the resolution was also bumped up to 10MP. Apart from the new 1/2.33" sensor and lens, the new model gets a new 2.7-inch HyperCrystal LCD and BrightCapture Technology.
ISO sensitivity ranges from 50 to 6400, shutter speed from 1/2 to 1/2000 sec and the video mode is still VGA at 30FPS.
