Photographers who aren’t satisfied with their viewfinders (electronic or not) should be happy with Olympus’s new camera – the SP-100, which comes equipped with a built-in Dot-Sight for easy framing of distant moving subjects.

The camera’s dot-sight is located just above the 920k-dot LCD EVF making it easy for the user to keep the subject in frame by offering wide-angle views of the scene on its semi-transparent mirror. The dot-sight functions similar to a pop-up flash and is stowed away in a small compartment in the camera.

The SP-100 also comes with a 16MP BSI CMOS sensor with TruePic VII image processor that allows users to easily capture images even in low-light conditions. It also features a lens shift image stabilisation mechanism that significantly reduces shake even when the zoom is maxed out.

The SP-100 is also equipped with a number of image enhancing features as well as easy to change dials and switches for easy activation of camera features. For starters, the camera has an AF lock feature, manual focusing modes (including P/A/S/M modes) and a zoom lever to name a few.

Lastly, the camera is capable of capturing 1080p video at 60 frames per second and features a multi-motion image stabilisation feature that compensates for blurring when shooting video while walking or panning across a scene. There are also 11 available art filters that can be used when shooting full HD movies.

The Olympus Stylus SP-100 will be available starting in March for approximately AU$459.
