Kopin Corp. reveals that the electronic viewfinder (EVF) in the Olympus SP-550 UZ digital camera is made by them; Olympus has chosen Kopin to supply the EVF for precise viewing in the ultra-wide zoom of the SP-550 UZ.

The new Olympus model, which began shipping last month, features the first ultra-wide (18x) optical zoom for a point-and-shoot digital camera. Its focal length is equivalent to 28-504mm in a 35mm camera.

Kopin Corporation produces small, lightweight and power-efficient liquid crystal displays and heterojunction bipolar transistors (HBTs) for cameras and camera phones, camcorders, video eyewear, thermal weapon sights and night vision googles.
