Insgesamt bietet die Olympus SP-610UZ das, was man von einer Superzoom-Kamera zu diesem niedrigen Preis erwarte kann. Wer nur gelegentlich fotografiert und dabei weit entfernte Motive in der freien Natur nah heranholen will, wird bei einer...

Das Superzoom des Allrounders weckt bei reiselustigen Fotografen zu Recht Begehrlichkeiten, liefert aber im Telebereich eine Bildqualität, die für größere Ausdrucke nicht geeignet...
