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.

'Olympus OM-D: Photography Playground' Opening
Last night (April 22) I attended the Olympus High School art department’s studio art show, where the students hung examples of their creations for their invited guests and families to see and admire. These kids are talented. The show began with their art instructor explaining about their art and how the show was a culmination of a year’s work.

Prep softball: Olympus’ Everett finds sanctuary from cancer battle in softball

Reagan Everett knows she belongs when the Olympus softball team takes the field. The sophomore works left field like a seasoned player and is every pitcher’s nightmare when she steps into the batter’s box. Her thick, curly hair pulled into a ponytail sticks out of her helmet as she stares down the hurler. Gripping and regripping the bat, her exterior confidence is in conflict with the butterflies in her chest. The cure to these nerves is simple. “I just need to ...

The Resurrection of Italian Wine

Source: On the wine trail in Italy, Cevola

It is truly a miracle to consider what we humans do to the land and the resilience that land exhibits. We pour chemicals on it, stir them up and grind them in. then we put more poisons on the plants that grew up from that chemical baptism. When the leaves send their shoots and the flowers send their fruits, we then trim them, shave them and cast them to the ground. If that weren’t enough, when the remaining fr ...
