Olympus SP-550 Test Photos

After a 3 hours sleep I was picked up by Olympus Europe to join a trip to Spring Mountain Ranch, about 30 miles from Las Vegas where the PMA 2007 show is held. Arriving before sunrise I was able to use the new Olympus SP550 UZ Megazoom digital camera in the field. This beast of a compact camera offers an amazing 18x optical zoom (28-504mm - 35mm equivalent) and a blazing speed of 15 fps. These features are just a small part of the total package this camera offers. How about P/S/A/M settings, optical image stabilizer, ISO up to 5000, 2.5-inch LCD, Super Macro mode which lets you shoot from as close as 1cm, and much more. I have to say; I am impressed with the versatility of the Olympus SP-550 UZ!

If you are used to travel light, but you don't want to loose the capabilities of your advanced digital SLR, the new Olympus SP-550 UZ could be it. The camera is also interesting for the hobbyist or advanced shooter who is looking for a compact total solution. I just shot some scenery pictures of the sunrise and the Spring Mountain Ranch place.

Due to the effect of the upcoming sun the rocks get strong red-colored cast, perfect to catch with the Sunset scene mode. Horses were racing along, another subject which is no problem when you're using the Hi-Speed drive mode of the Olympus SP550 UZ camera. Enjoy the image test samples, after the PMA 2007 we will give you an update with a full Olympus SP-550 UZ camera review!

The PMA show, or Photo Marketing Association, continues its yearly tradition of maintaining a network of photo imaging as well as the experience and know-how of the industry. The PMA represents 20,000 members from over 100 countries, who are all active within the imaging industry. As a reflection of the changes in the market, the PMA organization has also changed and has become more diverse. Nowadays, the member group consists of representatives coming from photo retail, manufacturers, commercial photo labs, professional sports and news photography, in addition to small album print suppliers and photo processing centers. The PMA 2012 Trade show focuses on an industry which is heavily affected by the unstable situation of the global financial economy. However, whether the latter will also stand in the way of the innovation and product introductions, remains to be revealed by the PMA International Convention & Trade Show in Anaheim Convention Center (California, US).
