Summary: Great camera. I still don't understand how this seems to take clearer photos than a 5.0 MP camera. We compared photos from the Olympus and other 5.0 MP cameras and always select the 3.2 MP from this camera over the others. Maybe someone can explain the how and why? Is the Olympus MP mislabeled?
Excerpt: The Olympus D-560 zoom is an easy to use digital camera with excellent picture quality at an affordable price. Unfortunately, it apparently wasn’t built to last. I had mine just over a year, took less than a hundred pictures with it, never dropped it, and it froze up on …
Summary: This camera is one of the most disappointng products I have ever purchased. I now have 3 of them all with the same problem. 1. They drain the batteries after a few pictures and then malfunction. 2. The lens does not retract without at least an 8 second delay.
Summary: My first advice to anyone looking for a camera of any kind is to buy one from a company that specializes in cameras. Not in televisions and discmans. The second advice is that a company that has a reputation for professional equipment does not necessarily make equally good consumer level products.
Summary: I have had the pleasure of owning this camera since Sept. 03 when I purchased it on my way to a military deployment in Kosovo. It worked great in all situations that is found in the moist cold environment of the Balkins in my 9 months there.
Summary: I really enjoy having this camera. As a music student, I'm busy, I don't have time to fuss with a camera, and this one has continued to hold up to my mild abuse. It's sturdy, compact, durable, and lives in my backpack all the time, unharmed.

Summary: I bought this one after much research when my Fuji A210 was lost. As other previous reviewers have said, it takes great outdoor pictures as long as I choose the right white balance for the lighting. Pictures are sharp and color is saturated.

Summary: First of all, please note that the clam-shell design for this camera (D560) is NOT weatherproof - it has no rubberised seals & liners like the Olympus Stylus series (models 300/400/410). So, if protection against the elements is a must, buy one from the Stylus range instead.
