The Olympus SP-510UZ (Ultra Zoom) is a 7.1-megapixel bridge digital camera introduced by Olympus Corporation in 2006. It replaced the 6 megapixel SP-500UZ model that was launched in 2005. It was the last model of the SP-series (Special Performance) that used a 10x optical zoom lens. It was also the last of the larger-sized 10x optical ultra zoom cameras to be made by Olympus, which had been part of the C-series before the SP-series was produced. The SP-510UZ model can be traced back to the C-2100 Ultra Zoom, which was launched back in 2000. [2] The successor model to the SP-510UZ was the SP-550UZ. It used a longer 18x optical zoom lens. Today, the newest model in the Ultra Zoom camera line, the SP-590UZ, features a 26x optical zoom lens. In 2009, Olympus released a compact camera with a 10x optical zoom lens. However, it does not use the Ultra Zoom name nor is it a part of the SP-series line of cameras. [3]

The SP-510UZ has an earlier sister model, the SP-500UZ. Two major differences between the two cameras are that the SP-500UZ has a 6.0MP sensor and has a black body while the SP-51
