Olympus to Unleash SP-565 UZ Ultra Zoom in October

Olympus SP-565 UZ Ultra Zoom Digital Camera

Olympus today introduced the new SP-565 UZ ultra zoom digital camera, a smaller and lighter version of the SP-570 UZ that features telephoto and macro capabilities and a new Face Detection that the company says can focus on 16 faces simultaneously.

The new SP-565 UZ has the same 20x wide-angle (f/2.8-4.5) telephoto zoom lens (26-520mm equivalent) of its bigger brother but offers the ease-of-use of a point-and-shoot camera. Among its other major features are Dual Image Stabilization, Shadow Adjustment Technology and Perfect Shot Preview.

The Olympus SP-565 UZ will be available in October 2008 for about $400.
