The Olympus SP-720UZ is all about zoom power. It has a 26x zoom lens. That is powerful enough to make this camera a good choice if you are involved in sports or wildlife photography. The SP-720UZ is also capable of shooting High Definition movies.
When you take into account that as well as being able to zoom in on distant subjects the SP-720UZ is flexible enough to squeeze in wide scenes too you can see that this camera can cover a great number of different photo opportunities.
Its ability to work in challenging light has been enhanced by Olympus equipping the SP-720UZ with image stabilisation. For close up work you can focus from 1cm away from your subject. This further increases the versatility of the camera.
High speed shooting is catered for by a burst mode that can reel off up to 6 shots in just over a second. You can charge the battery by connecting the camera to a USB port.
