Olympus SP-560 UZ Review
29 April 2008
Conclusion: The Olympus SP-560 UZ mega zoom camera has a lot of things going for it but in the end, its picture quality and performance that matter the most. My advice would be to buy the Panasonic if you’re looking for an 18x zoom since they’re similarly priced.
Conclusion: We described the Fuji S8000fd as trying to be all things to all people, but that was before we really got to grips with the Olympus SP-560UZ. The number of features and options available on the Olympus is frankly comical.
Pros: Phenomenal zoom range that includes real wide-angle to long telephoto capability, Huge range of features, Reliable exposure, Good ergonomics, RAW mode (though very slow), Bright, immediate 'consumer friendly' output, Good detail and color at lowest ISO settings, Shadow Adjust helps produce nice p...
Cons: More features than you will know what to do with (many of them gimmicky), Unwieldy menu system, Corner softness at shorter focal lengths, High contrast tone curve tends to clip shadows or highlights, RAW mode so terribly slow, Limited AA battery life, Evidence of noise reduction smearing at anyth...
Conclusion: Perhaps I have been a bit harsh in my assessment of the Olympus SP-560, but I am disappointed by the quality of some of my test shots. The camera has plenty of features and I am sure its long lens will appeal to many.
Pros: Macro shot
Cons: Picture quality when full zoom used - shutter time for single photo with flash
Summary: Olympus SP-560 virker meget elegant i design og materialevalg. Kameraet ligger godt i hånden, og den ru, gummibelagte overflade giver et solidt greb om tingene. Ikke mindst på superzoomkameraer er det væsentligt, da det kræver et godt greb og en rolig hånd at holde kameraet i ro, når man zoomer 18x...
Conclusion: L’Olympus SP-560 UZ è un’ottima fotocamera digitale compatta, anche se si tratta a tutti gli effetti di una “Bridge”, ossia una via di mezzo tra le classiche compatte automatiche e dalle dimensioni minime e le reflex ultraprofessionali e ingombranti.
Pros: ZOOM OTTICO; Display ad elevata risoluzione; Sensore; Stabilizzatore Immagini
