Olympus SP-100 Camera has 16MP resolution and 50x zoom

Olympus has unveiled its new SP-100 digital camera. The camera has a resolution of 16MP and uses the Olympus TruePic VIII processor. The car is the first ever to have a built-in dot sight. That sight is designed to make it easy to track moving subjects while you are shooting.

"The SP-100’s dot-sight is mounted just above the built-in high-resolution, 920,000-dot, bright LCD Electronic View Finder and helps the user keep the subject in the frame by offering a wide-angle view of the scene on its semitransparent mirror. The dot-sight stows away for portability and pops up immediately to easily track any subject without the need to adjust the zoom, so the shooter never has to miss another image by having to retrace and compose. Olympus carefully designed the location of the EVF and the shape of the eyepiece for minimal contact between the photographer’s face and the camera body, giving even greater ease of shooting."

The dot sight pops up above the viewfinder of the camera. The SP-100 also has 50x optical zoom with a range equivalent to 24-1200mm. The LCD has a resolution of 920k dots. Olympus also equips the camera with lens shift image stabilization.

The image stabilization works in still photo and video mode. The camera has a full range of video shooting modes. It also has a number of automatic shooting modes. The camera is able to capture video in 1080p resolution at 60fps. It can also records video at reduced resolution up to 240fps. The SP-100 will ship in March for $399.99.

Prep football: Region 7 preview

Corner Canyon Chargers Corner Canyon can look back on its inaugural season as an unqualified success. The Chargers were co-Region 7 champions (along with Orem and Olympus), despite suiting up only nine seniors — only four of whom actually received playing time. Rather than looking back, though, Corner Canyon is looking ahead. This season, the Chargers will feature 51 seniors and return 20 of 22 starters. Back from season-ending injuries are ...

Big K.R.I.T. - Mount Olympus

Source: Gizmodo

Big K.R.I.T. is southern rap, but his music isn't exactly something you can pigeonhole into the hip hop categories de jour. He's not trap, he's not spitting about Molly, and he's very much his own thing. But that's a good thing! Although it kept him from getting much traction, thus "Mount Olympus," a big F-U to those who haven't been paying attention. Hopefully after hearin ...

Denzel Washington is back protecting the good people again as The Equalizer, but it doesn't seem to be something he's excited about in this extended TV spot for the action thriller from director Antoine Fuqua. It looks like we're going to get a good threatening monologue from Washington at some point, and that's always gre ...

Damien Demolder: Coloured DSLRs are so ugly they should be illegal

Source: Tech Radar

Maybe I'm a bit miserable or too old, or just not open-minded enough, but I haven't yet managed to appreciate why anyone would buy a DSLR finished in a bright red body shell. Or blue, green or orange for that matter. Why would you do that? What is the attraction?I once was lucky enough to get to see the lunar version of the Minolta Dynax 8000si and remember being really quite taken with its astro-white body and matching lens and flash unit. But I wouldn't have considered own ...

Best waterproof compact camera

Source: TechRadar UK

Two thirds of the planet is covered in water, yet the vast majority of cameras won't thank you for taking them into it. This bunch of waterproof wonders are right at home capturing subaquatic scenes though, and will let you dive as deep as 25 metres to fish out the perfect shot. They're all shock and freezeproof too, and some wont mind if you give them a crushing either. The fun doesn't stop there, as you'll also find many rugged cameras c ...

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
