Manufacturer's Description

The Olympus SP-720UZ: Flagship Ultra Zoom 'Traveller' camera ensures superb photos & video, home or away

Olympus is proud to introduce the new flagship model in its 'Traveller' Ultra Zoom camera range, now in its tenth year. The stunning SP-720UZ, the most highly specified of two new models, suggests itself as a powerful addition to the 'UZ' family from the outset, as there is no mistaking the hugely versatile 26x optical zoom at the front.

With its lens equipped to take in a wealth of globe trotting photo opportunities, the Olympus SP-720UZ's super slim compact design ensures that it won't take up too much space in that backpack. As well as being able to capture those challenging once-in-a-lifetime shots, it offers great value for anyone trading up from a small zoom point and shoot camera for the first time.

Here one lens allows photographers to pull the faraway closer or shoehorn more of any subject into the frame; the choice is yours. So whether you're shooting a static mountain range, photographing skittish wildlife or competitive sports, the Olympus SP-720UZ is always going to be the best tool for the job.

26x ultra-wide optical zoom for photo flexibility

The Olympus Ultra Zoom ‘UZ’ camera range has long been acclaimed for its powerful telephoto performance. But the SP-720UZ is part of a new breed of ‘Traveller’ compacts that makes this feat even more impressive because of the modest dimensions of the camera itself.

Incredibly slender and amazingly light, the Olympus SP-720UZ comes fully equipped with a wide angle 26x optical zoom which provides photographers with an incredible focal range the equivalent of 26-676mm in 35mm film terms.

This affords the versatility of close quarter wide angles for dramatic visual effects, seemingly nose-to-nose close ups in fact captured from afar, plus the ability to record expansive panoramas in a single picture.

Full 1080p HD video shooting offers expanded versatility

As well as being a compact powerhouse when it comes to stills photography, in addition the Olympus SP-720UZ features Full HD 1080p movie recording as standard.

This ensures both photographers and videographers automatically have the most appropriate medium to do justice to any subject matter within a finger’s reach.

14-megapixel CMOS sensor & TruePic III+ processor combine for great looking images

At the heart of the Olympus SP-720UZ is a powerful and versatile 14-megapixel CMOS sensor, affording beyond poster sized prints, whatever you point its lens at. The properties of the camera’s hard working chip when combined with TruePic III+ image processor mean that photographers can look forward to radiant colours, low noise and razors sharp edges.

Big and bright LCD screen enhances photo sharing

The Olympus SP-720UZ offers a large 3-inch, 460,000 dot resolution LCD screen for framing and reviewing your photos. This means that sharing shots on the spot with holidaying family and friends is not only a possibility but also a real pleasure.

HDR Backlight Adjustment for perfect exposures

Shooting against the light can be extremely tricky for any camera. But the Olympus SP-720UZ is not any camera. Thanks to on board HDR Backlight Adjustment, even exposures are guaranteed. Instead of recording just one shot, the camera takes multiple images very quickly at different exposure settings then creates a collage of ideally exposed photos, blending them seamlessly into one perfect picture.

Dual IS banishes blur for perfect results

Soft shots and blurred images that most super zoom cameras fall pitifully prey to are conspicuous only by their absence with the Olympus SP-720UZ.Dual Image Stabilisation achieves sharp shots and reduces blur when the subject itself is fast moving. The camera’s high speed sequential shooting also comes in very handy in such circumstances, while built-in flash can freeze motion for sharp results.

Eye-Fi card compatible for wireless connectivity

Connectivity is enhanced by the SP-720UZ being compatible with Eye-Fi media cards, enabling automatic wireless downloading of pictures, straight to your desktop, and again facilitating photo sharing. No more messy cables!

The SP-720UZ is also compatible with both SDHC and SDXC media cards, readily available.

Pixel rich picture quality every time

The Olympus SP-720UZ doesn’t just deliver the goods on paper. In practice, with a 16 megapixel top photo resolution, TruePic III+ image processor, and 720p High Definition video recording, the manufacturer’s trademark pixel rich image quality is very much in evidence – even when pictures are viewed on a large screen television via HDMI output.

Automatic for the people

Automatic photo aids like subject-following AF Tracking, Intelligent Auto Mode (i-Auto), Face Detection plus Shadow Adjustment Technology ensure perfect focus and exposure for any given subject, while Scene Modes automatically enhance specific subjects and Handheld Starlight mode provides best quality for tripod-free low light photography. Add in Beauty Make Up mode for banishing blemishes plus Pet Detection Mode for perfect pictures of your pooch and anyone will be able to take better photos than ever with the Olympus SP-720UZ.

12 Magic Filters transform the everyday into the extraordinary

Specifically designed to expand the creative potential of digital photography, this impressive function of the SP-720UZ utilises in-camera image processing technology to effortlessly transform the everyday into extraordinary scenes. Simple to operate, the filters allow users to create entirely new worlds with their images. From vibrant colours and pencil drawings to mysterious or rounded perspectives, artistic spirits can magically turn ideas into reality. What’s more, nine of the filters can be used when recording video as well as shooting stills – a first in the SP-720UZ’s product category.

Users can choose from Punk, Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, Soft Focus, Sparkle and Watercolour plus Miniature, Reflection and new Fragmented and Dramatic filters.

  • Miniature: This mode lends your photos the appearance of a miniature model with stronger colours and contrast by narrowing the depth of field.
  • Reflection: A simulation of a magical horizontal reflection of your subject: for example as if it or they were standing next to perfectly still water.
  • Punk: Pose like Sid and Nancy and have your world turned dayglo pink, with this fun feature that transforms your photos into crudely photocopied fanzine style images, but in a good way.
  • Pop Art: In the tradition of Andy Warhol, this effect enhances colours, making them stronger and more vivid. It creates high-impact pictures that express the happy, light-hearted feeling of the pop art style.
  • Fish-Eye: With its distorted 180-degree perspective, this filter reproduces the dramatic effect of a fish-eye lens. It lends a new perspective to the whole scene with a “round” effect.
  • Drawing: This filter gives the impression that subjects have been sketched on the fly by an artist just at the moment that inspiration struck. Images are transformed into line drawings for improvised, creative results.
  • Pin Hole: For an ethereal feel, Pin Hole reduces the peripheral brightness of images like an image seen through a pinhole. Added to this is a unique colour tone that results in a style that has an air of secrecy or portrays the feeling of being lost in another dimension or space.
  • Soft Focus: Give your portraits that romantic otherworldly look beloved of wedding photographers.
  • Sparkle: A photos-only Magic Filter that truly imparts a sprinkling of fairy dust, adding twinkling reflections to shiny objects.
  • Watercolour: With this option pictures are transformed into a watercolour painting framed by soft light.
  • Fragmented: A photos only Magic Filter to bring a dose of creativity to any image.
  • Dramatic: A photos only Magic Filter that adds a sense of drama and foreboding to any shot for stunning results even on the dullest of days.
Creative freedom via 3D and Panorama shooting

The usability of the Olympus SP-720UZ is further enhanced by optional 3D shooting mode, lending images a striking sense of depth, from close up macro shots to expansive landscapes. This mode captures two shots from two different angles to create shots that can be viewed on a 3D compatible display.

An in-camera Panorama mode further allows for quick and easy images with drama and beauty combined, providing another creative highlight. Several frames are shot and automatically combined by the camera.

I bought this as one of Amazon's deals of the week, £140 for a camera that has a huge wealth of features.

Firstly it has a large 26x optical zoom, added to a digital zoom that can take the total up to x108, this is far more than I am used to and the results can be seen in the photos of the moon above, these were taken using the camera's night mode, just held in the hand, thanks to the excellent image stabilising systems on board, they came out rather well.

The camera takes up to 14MP images, and full HD video at 1080P, still pictures benefit from an ISO range between 100 and 3200, it must be said though that images at 400 and above can produce rather noisy images, there is also a setting for High ISO to minimise blurring.

There is an IAuto mode, for taking quick and easy pictures, but I did find using this a bit disappointing, as the pictures tended to over expose a bit, I wanted a camera that would challenge me slightly after years of just using point and shoot models, so I mainly use the P setting which affords full control over the image, macro and super macro can be selected, super macro will focus as close as 5CM, actually a step down from my Canon point and shoot, which could focus at 1CM, but it is good enough, exposure can be adjusted, white balance, and ISO setting, there are two bridge pictures above one taken on auto then one on P setting, I feel the Auto image has lost some detail of the scene personally.

bought this camera from amazon in august and have now put it thru its paces, It is really good in all areas, having owned about 30 ish cameras during the time Ive been interested in photography, I have to say this is the best by a long way, a recent trip to a zoo I managed to get some superb shots that I could never have got from my previous Fuji bridge camera. highly recommended as is Amazon.

After trying different makes of camera and comparing them I must say I prefer the Olympus range and the Olympus SP-72ouz digital ultra zoom camera is one of the best I have tried, so advanced for clarity of picture and so many different settings to choose from for landscape or portrait I find it very good.

Bought as a gift for my boyfriend.Am so impressed by this camera...although We are no expert photographers it was recommended to me by a friend who has experience.the zoom is incredible and the settings offer so much choice to take some awesome photos!i especially love the sparkle settings,mainly because I love anything sparkly but it gives pictures a cool edge!I do think the person taking the pictures makes a difference...no camera will produce top notch photos unless you are infact a photographer!
Love that the battery is rechargeable to save battery faffing!
Overall have no regrets with this purchase and am loving practicing with it...shame we can't upload pics for people to see!happy snapping :)

I have had an SLR for several years one of the main problems was I was the only one who could use it. This new camera gives ever one the chance to take pics but good pics too. Easy to use and feels quality when you handle the camera.

it is really good camera when you take into consideration the price and what it does. Perfect for anyone starting out in photography or Youtube Vloggers as it can also record in 1080p though it has a microphone built in it doesn't have a audio mic if you wanted to use a boom mic. Overall I love this camera and will be ideal for 99 percent of people.
