WORLD's FIRST ON CAMERA DOT SIGHT*
The restricted field of view at full zoom makes it challenging to locate and focus on long-distance subjects. The SP-100 features the world’s first built-in dot sight*, a red light that’s projected onto a glass panel under the flash to help you quickly and accurately zero in on your subject when the lens is extended.EXPLORE FEATURES

image processor, focus and exposure control options more

ACCESSORIZE YOUR SP-100
The SP-100 is a marvel of compact digital technology. You don’t need extra lenses, or an external dot sight apparatus, or a computer with image manipulation software. You may, however, want a nice case for your new favorite camera, or extra batteries, so we put together some nice accessories to complete your kit.
PERFECT FOR LONG DISTANCE CLOSE-UPS
WORLD'S FIRST CAMERA WITH A BUILT-IN DOT SIGHT*
The SP-100’s dot-sight helps you to easily track moving subjects (like a soccer game or a flying bird) and keep the subject in the frame by offering a wide-angle view of the scene on its semitransparent mirror. The dot-sight stows away for portability and pops up immediately without the need to adjust the zoom, so you never have to miss another image by having to retrace and compose. *As of January 17, 2014, based on Olympus research.
LENS POWER OPTIMIZED
Carrying multiple lenses to cover all shooting situations isn’t always feasible. With the SP-100 and its 24-1200mm equivalent zoom, you don’t have to. This optically superior lens has an opening bright f2.9 aperture for crisp images in low light, and captures everything from wide-angle panoramic views to long-distance close-ups in astonishing detail – throughout the 50x optical zoom range.LEARN MORE
HIGH-LEVEL FUNCTIONALITY EYE-LEVEL SHOOTING
The familiar comfort of eye-level composition combined with advanced digital technology – that’s the SP-100’s EVF in a nutshell. All the shooting information you need (e.g., exposure, white balance, Art Filters) is displayed, especially useful when bright daylight obscures the LCD monitor. Perfect for photographers who like a little old-school with cutting edge.
FINE-TUNE YOUR FOCUS
With the SP-100, you’re in control. For quick shooting in telephoto mode, use the convenient focus button to lock in the autofocus or activate either Manual Focus or the Focus Limit feature, which offers three AF modes: Aperture AF, Infinity AF and Close-up AF. A full range of shooting modes (P/A/S/M) is also available.LEARN MORE
