Summary: This camera is a solid purchase as an item for consumers that fall between amateur and professional. It has a few advanced features to adjust ISO control, indoor/outdoor light settings, use flash, and choose between viewfinder or LCD focus-framing control options.
Summary: Great camera, took wonderful pictures and video. i would not recommened it to someone who is looking for a start out camera as it is a little difficult to use at first and can be overwheling because of all the many features it has.
Summary: I found this camera initially a bit worse (more digital noise and less sharp images) than my old Olympus until I adjusted the ISO and turned off the digital image stabilizer. Then it became a superb digital camera.
Summary: This camera with a 2 gig card replaced both our old Olympus digital camera and our analog video camera. It gives us 30 plus minutes of video and pictures to boot. All functions are as promised. Con: so many features, it's hard to use them all.
A Solid Performer for the Price - 4 Stars for Value

Summary: It is important to thoroughly read the manual for any camera and test it out fully before making a decision on keeping it. For example, the "it picks some random focus point" issue can be solved by choosing P mode and telling the camera that the focus point should always be in the center.
Summary: As we all know, olympus is well known for its well featured, superzoom cameras. Now with this camera olympus provides us with a camera with 10x optical zoom and with 7.1 megapixels in a very good price. Grab the chance to take a Olympus SP-510 camera!!!
Summary: I work at a museum in central Wisconsin and use this camera to capture images of artwork and events in the Museum. I bought the Olympus SP-510 because of its features and low price and am pleased with the results that it produced.
Summary: When I first started taking pictures with this camera earlier today, I was almost ready to return it. My first shots turned out blurry, grainy, off-color, and all-around unsatisfactory. So much for the factory settings.
Summary: This is a great overall camera! The optical zoom is adequate - not the best I have used but you can get other lenses. The super macro is awesome, the auto feature works great as do the manual override features. This is the first digital camera I have used that I felt was worthy of purchase.
Summary: Great camera, takes good pictures, comfortable & easy to use and the user can show a degree of creativity if needed On the down side, it's a little bulky & the lens is not changeable. Overall, it's still a very good basic camera
