 The Olympus SP-590UZ is a high powercamera with 26x zoom that covers a focal length range of 26-676mm. With such a high powered zoom, the camera comes with image stabilization which helps prevent camera shake from ruining pictures. The Olympus SP-590UZ is similiar to older Olympus UZ cameras in the fact that it can record RAW files. This camera is designed to be a lightweight professional camera, great for bird watchers or wild life photographers that can't get too close to their subjects. There are eighteen different built-in shooting modes and the exposure settings titled full Manual, Aperture Priority or Shutter Priority, all which give the photographer more control over the picture.
