sp 100 2Hot on the heels of the announcement of the Olympus OMD E-M10 and the Stylus Tough TG-850, Olympus has announced yet another camera for those who are fans of super zoom cameras. Dubbed the Stylus SP-100, this is the latest super zoom camera from the Japanese company, and apart from being able to zoom in pretty far (a 24-1200mm lens), it comes with built-in dot-sight that allows the photographer to easily track moving subjects even when zoomed in. For those who ever tried to follow the action when using zoom, you guys know how difficult it can get, so to have dot-sight tracking, it just made things a whole lot better.

Other features of the SP-100 include a focus limiter that allows the photographer to determine what distance the camera can focus at, a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor, a TruePic VII processor, and built-in lens shift image stabilization, a mechanism that will reduce camera shake even at the highest zoom. Once again if you have ever tried to move around while in zoom mode, you know that the slightest movement will result in a lot of shake, so the lens shift image stabilization should be able to correct that. Apart from the zoom features, the SP-100 will also come with a 3” LCD display and video recording capabilities that can capture Full HD videos at 60fps. It will be priced at $399.99 and will be available in March 2014.
