Featured on the SP-600UZ is the massive 15x wide optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28-420mm. When the camera is off the lens retracts into the body, keeping it rather small for the size of the lens. Its maximum aperture of F3.5-F5.4 allows for good low-light shooting. The sensor-shift image stabilization helps steady the camera when using the telephoto end of the zoom with the camera in your hands. To help protect the lens, Olympus has provided a lens cap that fits over the lens, but pops off if the camera is turned on, just in case you forget.

Focus Range:
Normal:             Wide: 5.9" - infinity (0.15m - infinity)
                           Tele: 70.9" - infinity (1.8m - infinity)
Macro:               Wide: 5.9" - infinity (0.15m - infinity)
                           Tele: 70.9" - infinity (1.8m - infinity)
Super Macro:   0.39" - 4.72" (0.01m - 0.12m)

Well concealed under a flap, the I/O ports shown here include a multi-connector on top and an HDMI output on the bottom. The multi-connector allows you to connect to a computer or standard TV with the included cables. With the HDMI port, you can view your images and HD Videos on a HDTV, but you will need to purchase the optional HDMI cable.











olympus_sp600_uz_sd.JPGWith 1GB of internal memory, you will be able to store up to 144 images, but it also accepts SD/SDHC memory cards. These cards range up to 32GB in storage and give you endless space for more shooting. The SP-600UZ is shown here with a spacious 16GB ADATA Class 6 SDHC card.






olympus_sp600_uz_batteries.JPGPowering the SP-600UZ are 4 AA-Type batteries. WIth a set of 4 Alkaline batteries, the camera is capable of capturing up to 340 images. We recommend using a set of NI-MH batteries that can be recharged over and over again, saving you money in the long run.
