Olympus SP-720UZ

14 Reasons why Olympus SP-720UZ is better

than the average

1.Substantially faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
30fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
2.Has a built-in HDR mode
Yesvs No (74% don't have it)
It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).
72mmvs 95mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
4.Has a microphone in
Yesvs No (77% don't have it)
A microphone port allows connecting external high-end or specialized microphones.
5.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.
6.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
7.Somewhat bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
8.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.
9.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.
10.Can be controlled remotely
Yesvs No (57% don't have it)
A remote control allows you to control the device remotely. The remote control can be included or optional.
11.Significantly greater zoom range
26xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
12.Considerably longer maximum focal length
676mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
13.Shorter minimum focal length
26mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
14.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
