Efficient, noisy

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera a couple years ago for about 125$ on ebay, wanting a prosumer camera (something between a regular point and shoot and a professional camera with more control). In natural lighting, it gives crisp, professional-looking photographs that have tons of potential if ran through an editing program. With indoor or low lighting, this camera fails with it's high noisy level. There is a ton of control with this Olympus and even a panorama feature!

  • Summary: This camera takes a little getting used to. It took me nearly a week to figure out that I could not change the ISO with the DIS on. Once I turned off the digital image stabilization, I could manually set the ISO. The manual is on cd which I do not prefer. That being said, I am getting some incredible shots now that I am getting used to this little camera. For the price, I can't believe the shots I am getting. The guide mode has been very helpful and a nice surprise.
  • Pros: 10x zoom, guide mode, many preset scene modes, nice weight and feel. Great price for all of the features.
  • Cons: Noisy at ISO above 400, no print manual, can't manually set the ISO in auto mode and the camera sets it way too high.

  • Excerpt: I bought this camera a few weeks ago. Believe me, it is a fun gadget! But, only, remember this ..... if you are the type who like to tweak gadgets manually to get its best performance! This camera has lots of manual tweakings, too many in fact, .... that is why I can understand why some users are frustrated with it. I tried clicking off using various modes, although slow, but the batteries (4 AA batteries) are lasting.

  • Excerpt: "The Olympus SP-510 is a belter of a camera giving 25 different shooting modes for the inexperienced or beginner digital user allowing automatic compensation for varying light situations. For anyone using photo editing software it also allows picture taking in camera raw mode. The one drawback I have come across is the slow reaction to the shutter press and occasionally the auto focus gets it wrong, but overall, well worth the money. The battery ...
  • Pros: Many different shooting modes
  • Cons: Shutter can be slow to react
