Olympus SP-620UZ and SP-720UZ Ultra Zooms

These 'traveller' cameras offer impressive wide-angle and telephoto shooting capabilities with the SP-620UZ featuring a 21x optical zoom while the top-of-the-range SP-720UZ delivers fully 26x magnification.

The SP-720UZ features a 14-Megapixel CMOS sensor while a 16-Megapixel CCD can be found on the SP-620UZ. This model also features Multi-Motion IS which is designed to cut out camera shake while the SP-720UZ has HDR Backlight Adjustment built in so instead of taking one shot, the camera takes multiple images very quickly at different exposure settings then blends them to make one, perfectly exposed shot.

Magic Filters, 3D Photo Shooting, Eye-Fi card compatibility and full HD (720p HD on the SP-620UZ) video options can be found on both models.

The SP-720UZ is available from late March for £229.99. The SP-620UZ goes on sale for £179.99 in mid-February. Both cameras come in silver or black.
