Excerpt: I love my Olympus ! This is the second one I’ve had, because I thought that I lost my first one. The SP-510 series has a huge lens, it takes awesome photos! With its 2.5″ LCD you’ll really see what you’re capturing. It has a built-in software to add frames to your photo and has different color resolutions so you can take pictures in black and white, color, and Sepia. It works on 4 AA batteries and takes over 600 photos without needing to change the batteries!
Excerpt: This is an amazing digital camera which my wife bought a little while ago. It takes excellent quality pictures, too bad that they take up three times the memory, so i strongly reccomend that you buy a 2gigabite sd-card, so you will be able to keep about 200 picture (under highest possible quality) and about 400 pictures under high quality, and that level of resolution is already far more than enough. It has 7.1 megapixels and an incredible 10x optical zoom.
Summary: This camera is really great. It takes beautiful pictures. And it is easy to use. I did not get a manual with the one I bought but I was able to find it on line very quickly. It takes very nice pictures inside as well as outside.
Summary: I love this camera. I've had one for years and recently got this one for my daughter. The optics are superb! I've been buying Olympus for years for just this reason. I even traded in my old Nikon SLR (film) for this camera. The camera is light and compact with a 10x optical zoom. I really like the view finder option for use when it's really sunny out. The best feature, any why my daughter wanted this camera, is the shoot and select option.
Excerpt: I have owned my Olympus E-510 Digital SLR for about a year and a half. I have taken thousands of photos and have really come to rely on its dependability. It's menu's are easy to access and easy to understand. It's dials and buttons are also well placed for easy access. I am using the two kit lens, a 14-42mm and a 40-150 mm, plus I bought a 70-300mm telephoto lens. This camera has image stabilization technology to help prevent camera shake.
Excerpt: I was lucky to have purchased my camera on sale which made it an even better deal. It's simple to use and reviewing or deleting pictures you have just taken is an easy two step process. This camera will take pictures antomatically or one can adjust the aperture and shutter speed. There is also an option to shoot videos with sound; this is a great option at sporting events.
Excerpt: I've had an Olympus SP510UZ digital camera for 3 years and I still love it. Photography is one of my favorite hobbies and I'm starting to get into lighting, composition, etc.. This camera is really easy to use. You don't need to set any complicated settings in order to get good pictures, but you can experiment with them if you want to. It has great zoom and the pictures are really high-quality. The camera automatically focuses and adjusts the light settings very well.
Summary: I decided to buy this one after much research. I'm not a pro at picture taking, just a mom with lots of memories. All of the descriptions about the camera are correct. I love it! The zoom is great and more. Still learning other features, and can't wait. It is as light as a disposeable camera. I like both the view finder and screen,which is pretty large. I'm a stickler for price, and this was a great buy.
Forget higher MP ... get a camera with good macro and zoom features !

Summary: I'm not sure I'm qualified to review this camera because all I did was look over the book and start using it. I haven't begun to use the many features it has. I do use the zoom and macro features and am thrilled with the results of each. I have a more expensive camera, more everything but the macro is not as good as this camera. I do a lot of close-ups ... ebay, flowers, bugs and this is what I needed !
Summary: In comparison to my other camera, which was a Fuji, this camera is by-far a better choice. It has an awesome zoom capability, good display, fantastic detail on up-close pics, and video had decent sound quality for a non-camcorder type. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone!
