The Olympus Stylus 550UZ is a pioneering digital camera, with the highest optical zoom currently available; it's sure to be one of 2007's most talked about new products. The remarkable 18x optical zoom super-telephoto lens allows for even longer and more detailed shots, and the 550UZ's built-in image stabilization (both the valuable sensor-shift IS and the admittedly less important digital IS) keeps things in line. The 550UZ also has ISO settings up to 5000, for improved action or sports photos and night shots. The Stylus 550 is looking to make a big name for itself, and with features like these, it will certainly generate a large amount of buzz.
