Olympus SP-560UZ

Olympus this morning bolstered its consumer camera launches with the high-zoom SP-560UZ. The camera complements its 18X lens with a new 8-megapixel sensor and a shift towards wider-angle shots with a 27-486mm focal range. Using the same TruePix III imaging chip as some of the newer mainstream cameras, the 560UZ also boosts sensitivity up to ISO 6400 and allows for burst shooting up to 15 frames per second for short periods. Although geared to serious home photographers with a RAW mode, the camera also caters to novices with the Smile Shot mode that detects grins as well as faces.

Previews are handled through a 2.5-inch LCD, and images are stored exclusively on xD cards. The AA battery-powered, ultra-zoom camera should be available through Olympus and in shops for $450.
