The Olympus SP-100EE is the world’s first camera with an integrated dot-sight to aid long zoom framing and subject tracking. The sight works in tandem with the SP-100EE’s 24-1200mm 50x optical zoom lens to enable easy high-power zooming and subject capture. There is also a focus limit button that can help in keeping what you want in focus.
There are more advanced features like AF lock and manual focus, and PASM shooting modes. For the step-up user moving from a basic point-and-shoot, there are plenty of auto and creative modes. Operating the SP-100 will feel more like a small DSLR than a point-and-shoot, due to the form-factor and controls; compared to previous Olympus ultra-zooms, the SP-100 has an improved grip. The SP-100 records video up to 1080/60p, which even one-ups Olympus’s new high-end OM-D E-M1.
There’s no in-camera Wi-Fi connectivity, but the Olympus SP-100EE does support wireless transfer to a smart device running the company’s Olympus Image Share smartphone app, using an optional Toshiba FlashAir SDHC card. Wired connectivity on offer includes a multi-terminal that provides for USB 2.0 High Speed data, standard-definition audio/video output, and DC input, as well as a Type-D Micro HDMI connector for high-def video output. Images and movies are stored on Secure Digital cards, including the higher-capacity SDHC and SDXC types, or on 37MB of built-in memory. Power comes from a proprietary LI-92B lithium-ion battery pack rated as good for 330 shots on a charge.
