New Model sp-570 Comming Soon

Leslie Wright III "Law4u911", Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: I've had this camera several days now and so far so good. Right out of the box, the sp-560UZ feels like a quality piece of equipment - my wife (no techie) immediately commented on how great the camera felt and looked. My first several photo sessions with this camera went well - especially the outdoor ones on the beach and the macro pictures I took of our wonderful California winter flowers.

Olympus SP-560UZ

Dave N., Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: Worthwhile upgrade from previous 10X Olympus. More zoom, faster, easier to find functions, and more features. Still trying to get used to scene-based shooting and deciding right mode -- especially for indoor shooting (images fuzzy). Not convinced how good image stabilization is yet -- sports mode in past seemed to work better.

Great Camera still learning how to use all the features

Diver Down, Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this camera along with the Olympus Underwater housing so that I could try my hand at underwater photography. Using the preset underwater modes it take pretty good pictures. I would like to add the external flash to bring out more of the colors. Topside photos are excellent as this camera has plenty of features including RAW image format and an 18x optical zoom.

Difficult to Use at First

April Wininger, Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: This camera makes good pictures and has lots of functions. I purchased it because of the awesome 18X optical zoom. I had a 12X zoom that made wonderful photos and I thought these would be even better. In time my action pics have gotten better. There are so many bells and whistles, it is difficult to make quick shots. It is more camera than I bargained for.

Caveat emptor the Olympus 560!

Abi Gezint, Amazon
20 February 2009
  • Summary: This review REPLACES a negative review I'd posted, based upon insufficient knowledge of the camera: I got up this morning at about 4:00 AM thinking about the disastrous shoot I'd had at a party the other night with my new Olympus SP 560, the camera that was supposed to the the PARTY CAMERA OF MY DREAMS! On at least two occasions, the results were just awful, and I couldn't believe that Olympus had put out such a lousy box.

fantastic

  • Summary: i have recently bought it. took a few pictures. it has really a good design and finish. do not expect high quality pics from a 1/2.35" sensor. i could not understand two points yet: can it record movies for 40sec? and is there any option to shoot more than once on self timer mode. or is there any other option?

The Olympus SP-560UZ is an amazing camera

Jessica R. Bloomer, Amazon
1 February 2008
  • Summary: I recently bought this camera for myself and it is exactly what I wanted. It has a nice grip encasing that makes it easy to handle. It also has an amazing 18x zoom feature and takes gorgeous macro pictures. The menu features are very easy to find and understand once you get used to them. I would recommend this camera to anyone that loves to take good pictures, amatuer or experienced photographer.
