not under warranty

glorjc, Amazon
27 January 2011
  • Summary: I couldn't download the pictures from this camera, when I sent it in to Olympus for warranty work they said because I tried to take off the sticky label and didn't finish, it voided my warranty. The problem was in the USB port of the camera which wouldn't recognize the computer connection.

Came through as advertised

  • Summary: This kit has a lot of stuff in it and it's all of some value. My only real objection is that the lenses provide a fairly "soft" image and the user manual, such as it is, is pretty useless.

Olympus SP-550 UZ

  • Conclusion: Just last month I would have said this is the best camera ever made, but now I'm out of warranty and get a "zoom error" report and the camera shuts down, unable to use it at all. Stored in a Pelican case, water tight, padded, never dropped, never mishandled, never exposed to vibration, dust, sand or...

Nice camera, but the autofocus has a mind of its own.

Jamie Bowen "Jamie Bowen", Amazon
6 May 2007
  • Summary: I bought thus camera on the basis of its really useful zoom. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice camera. Everything feels solid and reliable, but the autofocus has a mind of its own. Unless the thing you focus on has 100% sharpness, the camera will focus on whatever is in the background (often hundreds...

Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom Compact Camera

Digital Camera Magazine
16 November 2008
  • Summary: I have used the SP550UZ for a while now, and find it a very good camera to use. The zoom on it is fabulous and if you take candids in the street, as I do sometimes, this comes in handy, as it would if you like to photograph wildlife/birds.

A strange autofocus on a generally good camera.

Jamie Bowen "Jamie Bowen", Amazon
7 May 2007
  • Summary: I bought this camera because I found the idea of a powerful zoom attractive. The zoom is useful, but the auto-focus has a mind of its own and I have felt it necessary to use to work round it (or switch it off, depending on the circumstances) to get the most out of the camera.

  • Summary: Hace cosa de un año que tengo esta cámara de fotos digital y estoy contento con ella, ya que en mi opinión es una máquina que me permite hacer muy buenas fotos, sin tener que retocar ni configurar "ningun parametro manual, aunque si lo prefieres y tienes tiempo puedes hacerlo, ya que al ser un...
  • Pros: el zoom y el estabilizador

  • Summary: Hauptsächlich wegen des Superzooms habe ich mir diese Kamera zugelegt, damit ich mit leichterem Gepäck unterwegs sein kann, was mir bei der E1 mit entsprechenden Objektiven nicht möglich ist.

mala de verdad

jesus, quesabesde.com
25 July 2008
  • Summary: Es bonita, pero tecnicamente es una porqueria, enfoque malisimo y lento, colores malos, brillo y contrastes malos y a veces peor, para ser de 7 megapixeles en la mayoria de las fotos falta definicion, tarjeta de memoria carisima, la duracion de las pilas estan bien, lo demas esta mal.
