Dot-sight framing assist

One of the big drawbacks to using a megazoom camera lens is that moving subjects can move out of frame fast, usually requiring you to retract the lens some to relocate your subject. The SP-100's unique dot-sight keeps you from having to do that.

Head-up display

Built into the frame beneath the pop-up flash is a semitransparent mirror. The dot-sight projects a reticle on to the mirror so you can quickly track and shoot your subject without zooming the lens out and in again.

Secondary zoom control and focus limiter

The lens barrel zoom control lets you change focal length with the left hand while shooting with the right. Olympus also added a focus-limit button so the camera will focus only in a set range when turned on, and focus only in the distance when off.

Deep grip

The SP-100 has a deep right-hand grip, which should hopefully make steadying that massive zoom lens a little easier. The camera does have optical image stabilization, too.
