The SP-590UZ digital camera from Olympus merges simplicity and convenience with a high-performance optic, and they wrapped it all up in a manageable form-factor. This amazing camera almost disappears in your backpack and weighs less than a pound; you can carry it all day long and you'll still want to take it with you tomorrow.
Telephoto and wide-angle shooters will find that the SP-590UZ's lens delivers above and beyond the call of duty. Zooming from true wide-angle all the way out to super-telephoto, the focal length of this fine optic spans what would be 26-676mm in a standard 35mm camera system. Photographic scenarios there were previously thought to be impossible become a tangible reality; eagles roosting on a ledge in the distance, or shooting a team photo in a less-than-ideal corner of the gym - the SP-590 handles both with aplomb, and its 12MP capture ensures a quality enlargement for everyone!
The high-resolution 1/2.33" CCD sensor produces 12MP images with fine detail and excellent enlargement capabilities
Extremely versatile 4.6 - 119.6mm f/2.8/5.0 lens (26 - 676mm equivalent in 35mm format) handles scenic vistas, intimate portraits, and long-range telephoto shots easily
With its excellent contrast and color reproduction, wide viewing angle, and enhanced visibility in direct sunlight, the HyperCrystal II LCD provides detailed on-site viewing and editing.
