Olympus outs SP-800UZ, 600UZ, Stylus Tough updates

Olympus' turn at early introductions for the PMA imaging expo were headlined today by two long-zoom SP series cameras as well as two hardened Stylus Tough updates. The SP-800UZ is one of the longest-range compacts ever with a 30X stabilized lens that can reach well into telephoto range. Olympus also promises a level of detail in capture and playback with a 14-megapixel sensor, 720p movie recording and a 3-inch LCD.

The 800UZ will ship in March for $350 and will be accompanied by the SP-600UZ, a more frugal model with a 15X lens, a 12-megapixel sensor and a slightly smaller 2.7-inch screen. It ships at the same time for $250.

The Stylus Tough 8010 and 6020 models are closer in spirit with 14-megapixel imaging, 5X lenses, 720p video and 2.7-inch LCDs. Differences come in durability as the 6020 can withstand a 5-foot fall and immerse in up to 16 feet of water where the 8010 can withstand impacts from a larger 6.6 fall and 33 feet of water. These ship sooner, arriving this month at prices of $300 for the Stylus Tough 6020 and $400 for the 8010.
