Features and lens[edit]

The UZ in the camera's name refers to Ultra Zoom; 10 times zoom being a significant increase over the more standard three times zoom capability of standard digital cameras. The lens is an Olympus aspherical glass zoom lens 5.9–59 mm. The 10x zoom is equivalent to 38–380 mm in 35 mm photography. The specifications describe it as a "multivariator 2 aspherical glass 10x zoom".


The camera has a built-in manual pop-up flash.


Movies can be recorded with sound and the recording time is dependent on the memory card capacity. They are in QuickTime (.mov) format.
