Following up the Olympus SP-550 UZ, which became the first camera with 18x optical zoom and set off a long-range zoom arms rance between the major manufacturers, the SP-560 UZ looks to perfect the trend. There are a few more megapixels and a the camera's range is a little wider. The dual image stabilization is there to compensate for the extreme sensitivity of the 18x zoom, and hopefully will improve the overall picture quality over that of the SP-550 UZ.
