Summary: i needed a new better digital camera that i could use on jobs, that looked and performed profesionaly, and this one fit the bill. no need to carry around a bag full of different lenses. its a great camera and very affordable, compared to regular dslrs.olympus rocks!!!
Summary: I bought this camera as a gift for my wife, we are both impressed with its power and versatility. It takes very good Macro shots, and the zoom is the most powerful one you can get in this class of camera. The camera fits well the in the hand, and controls are easy to reach and use. Very nice!
Pros: Comfortable Controls, Easy Setup, Short Lag Time
Summary: love the 18x zoom feature. best with a tripod when fully zoomed out. the video clip is limited to minutes, and it's noisy when the audio is on. The camera gets hot quickly when shotting video. picture quality is not that good at high iso, but the picture looks great under the normal lighting.
Summary: This is a great little megazoom camera. I looked at another megazoom camera by a different company, but decided to give olympus a try. I kind of wish I had bought the sp570 now for its even greater zoom. This has been a great camera for taking pictures of wildlife while I hike. Its a great little travel camera because of its size and zoom power. The pictures are excellent for the price range.
Pros: Easy to Use, Good Battery Life, Good sized screen, Nice Features and Settings, Rugged
Summary: very good camera. had previous 2 megapixel olympus camera. the camera is great. love the video - don't have to carry a video camera. excellent zoom. sometimes can't get good clarity on the digital zoom only wish is that i wish the shutter delay was less.
