For your average family traveler, this is a good choice.

  • Summary: If you're interested in more artful photography or any macro work, this is not your best choice. Outdoor photos are great, especially with all the scene settings available. The weight and size are great for vacation - especially if you're sight seeing outdoors.

Could be better

JOSE MACHADO JUNIOR, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this camera a while ago and just few months ago (maybe 4) it started showing "Zoom Error" when it was t=urned on and shutted off by itself. Fixing it would cost almost as much as buying a new one.

Excellent build, but mediocre picture quality

Jonathan Birge, Amazon

  • Summary: I switched to this camera from a Canon A610 that died on me. The first thing I noticed with this camera is that the picture quality on my $200 Canon was better or equal than this $400 camera. The dynamic range is terrible, with skies often washed out to white.

No Focus / No Support

Jim Cobb, Amazon
19 June 2008
  • Summary: Very disappointed with Olympus. I own 2 other Olympus cameras and was very satisfied, bought this camera and after shooting several hundred exposures was not satisfied with results only about 25 % of shots were in focus. Contacted Olympus with my concerns, but they never returned my inquiry.

A reasonable compromise

  • Excerpt: This is a nice robust feeling camera that fits into the hand well. The multitude of buttons and menu options does take a while to get used to though - it helps if you've owned similar Olympus cameras - and this tends to mean it's not really a quick, one handed operating camera.
  • Pros: Robust, plenty of features
  • Cons: Focusing problems, complicated

It's fun, but not much of an improvement on the SP-550

Jamie Bowen "Jamie Bowen", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a bit of a curate's egg of a camera. I bought its' parent (the SP-550) because this I found the idea of a powerful zoom attractive. The zoom is useful, but I found that the auto-focus had a bit of a mind of its own on that camera.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

E. J. Blackstock "I'm running out of room!", Amazon
3 July 2008
  • Summary: I bought this camera when it was first released, did my research and it was recommended to me by various semi-prof photographers. I was very excited. I was pleased with it but not as much as I thought I should be.

Olympus SP-560 UZ

  • Excerpt: I recently went in search of a digital camera that I will not hesitate to take along with me every time I go out. My current DSLR tends to be left behind a lot, as my back is finally rebelling after years of abuse!
  • Pros: compact, light, good features, reasonably priced
  • Cons: colours can appear dull, especially in low light conditions

  • Summary: Después de 2 años de uso, de hacer pruebas por todos los lados...hace buenas fotos SOLO CUANDO HAY LUZ EN CANTIDAD Y en MANUAL (calculando). Tiene un sensor muy pequeño. A ISO 200 da ruido a tope en cuanto falta mínimamente la luz.
