Olympus SP-550UZ Field Test Part 1
by TV Smith, 16th February 2007

I got hold of a test unit from Olympus today and was planning to publish it into a series, initially. Since there is so much excitement and buzz all over the place, here's some pics (shot earlier tonight) to whet your appetite...

  I normally would not attempt fireworks without a tripod but the image stabilizer of this nocturnal camera offered new found freedom.

  Hand-held at one-fifth of a second! The Ferris Wheel (Eye On Malaysia) is 60 metres tall and the fireworks shoot up to three times its height (at around 500 feet).

  Max zoom (18 X) creates a nice compressed image with selective depth of field. The image stabilizer performed flawlessly when doing hand-held shots at such extreme focal length. All images here shot with camera NR disabled and no post-processing was applied except minimal unsharp mask and saved at 50% jpg compression.
