Great Camera with lots of features

TnMom, Viewpoints

  • Excerpt: I really like my Olympus SP550UZ camera.  I'm still learning to use it, but like what I've seen.  It has a lot of great features (lots of scenes to choose from).  It's so easy to use.  The user interface is easy to use. I'm not a very good photographer, but this camera takes such good pictures that it has me fooled into thinking that I am a good photographer. I still have some problems with lighting (user error, not camera error, I think).

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

I. J. Nas, Amazon
16 September 2008
  • 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.

Olympus SP-550UZ

Overstock

  • 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.

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

David B. Merrell, Amazon
28 December 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.

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.
