Great Digital Camera For The Occasional Picture Taker.

quietstormgu1tar, Ebay
12 October 2014
  • Summary: I bought this little camera because technology is dragging me(kicking and screaming) into digital. I like basic film SLR's and Kodak Film, but Kodak is gone, and I'm not a fan of Fuji film. Sooner or later FujiFilm will be gone as well...so here I am. The camera is small and light but comfortable in the hands. the only issue I have with it is the format of the memory card. It's Xd. I didn't consider that when I bought the camera. SD is the popular format...

Olympus SP-550UZ

Overstock
24 January 2008
  • Summary: Great camera; but after I purchased from Overstock I saw the new version (SP-560UZ) for much less on another website. Even with the bonus, I still have issues with the actual value.

If it is not moving this camera will make you very happy

George E. Robertson, Amazon
14 January 2008
  • Summary: The zoom is just plain stupefying. I love it. The slowest ISO 50 means truely excellent sharp noise free images in daylight. At the other end of the ISO range it is terrible like pretty much all affordable digitals at high ISOs. I love it for photographing buildings and landscapes and for Macro photography of flowers and small intricate gizmos, jewelry, and anything tiny with lots of important detail.

Great value for a good camera

Mark S. Williams "Nitro", Amazon
12 December 2007
  • Summary: I purchased the 550UZ mainly for pix of birds in my backyard and family snaps. Overall, I'm pleased with the quality and performance of the camera. However, a tripod is a must when using the fully extended tele. Being an old film and winder guy, I find the myriad of settings and instructions just a wee confusing. Otherwise, the price (less than $400), long lens, and remote triggering met my expectations.

Olympus SP-560 SP-550 UZ Professional HD2 Digital Accessory Kit

David B. Merrell "Old English Prof", Amazon
22 October 2007
  • Summary: The kit contains very useful accessories. The tripod is a high-quality lightweight tripod, very easy to use. Both the telephoto and wide angle lenses work well. My only hesitation is that the package shoud have an overall set of instructions, warnings, hints, etc. Still I am pleased that I added the kit to the camera.

Olympus SP-560 SP-550 UZ Professional HD2 Digital Accessory

I. J. Nas, Amazon
22 October 2007
  • Summary: The kit is great. The tripod is lightweight yet of high-quality, is very basic, that it does not have a level reference. The wide-angle and telephoto lens are working just fine. The lens adaptor is nice that it has a choice of two length, either when your lens is at full retract or full zoom.
