Digital Camera Description

The Olympus SP-565UZ is a Large Digital Camera with a 1/2.3" sensor. Its 10 Megapixels CCD sensor offers an ISO 64-1600 sensitivity range which is expandable to ISO 64-1600. With 10 MP of resolution, sharp prints are possible up to at 240 DPI.

A builtin Image Stabilization mechanism allows the Olympus SP-565UZ to compensate for camera shake.

This camera features a mechanic shutter that can expose for 1/2000 to 15s. This camera can make Bulb exposures up to 8m. With a fastest shutter-speed of 1/2000, fast action can easily be frozen. Night photography is possible using this digital camera due to its long exposure capability. This camera model offers Full Manual Controls.

Olympus SP-565UZ

The Olympus SP-565UZ features a Contrast-Detect AF system. Autofocus can continuously adjust according to subject distance. A Real-Time Autofocus Tracking System allows focus to follow a moving subject within the frame. Manual Focus is also available.

Although this camera offers full manual controls, it does not have any control-dials to change exposure parameters directly. This camera does not feature any seals to protect it against adverse weather, dust and moisture. Care must be taken, just like with most electronics. Framing on the Olympus SP-565UZ is performed via a Built-in EVF.
