Dot-sight for tracking moving subjects, ruggedness touted in new Olympus cameras

At the same time as launching the OM-D E-M10, Olympus has unveiled two more cameras it will also ship in March. The Stylus SP-100EE is a super zoom camera with a dot-sight for subject tracking, while the Stylus TG-850 is a ruggedized, waterproof compact camera with a 180-degree flipping LCD monitor for simpler self portraits and more shooting options.

Offering the equivalent focal length of 24-1200mm, the SP-100EE offers a 50x optical zoom, boosted to 100x under its "Super Resolution" mode, with its dot-sight above the 920k-dot EVF offering a wide-angle view of the scene in a semi-transparent mirror for easier composition of moving targets. Packing a 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor with a TruePic VII image processor, it has an ISO range of 125 to 6400, can take 6 images at 7fps in its burst mode, and while it includes 1080p video as standard, it also offers 120fps and 240fps video recording modes at a lower resolution.

The compact Stylus TG-850 uses a similar 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and TruePic VII combination to the SP-100EE, with a super wide-angle 21-105mm 5x optical zoom lens. Offering 1080p video recording and a high-speed video mode, it has 7.1fps sequential shooting, a lens-shift image stabilization system, and a 99-frame interval shooting mode. Despite having a flippable 3-inch, 460k-dot LCD screen, it is waterproof to a depth of 33 feet, shockproof from 7 feet, is protected from being crushed under 220 pounds of weight, dustproof, and can survive in temperatures as low as 14F (-10C).
