Summary: love this little bridge camera My Olympus 560 replaces an old 10x Olympus c 740. I love the extra 8x of zoom. This 18x zoom has greater range than any lens I could buy for my SLR. When I go on vacation, I will bring 560 superzoom and not my SLR. It is so small and light. Great for hiking and nature photos. It is almost too small. The build quality is excellent. I have pride of ownership with this camera. The LCD is much sharper than the LCD display on other cameras.
Summary: This camera was a replacement for a camera I broke and used all the time. I ;love this camera and I was so impressed that this was a used camera but it was like new. I take hundreds of pictures at a time at a Cat Rescue and this is a good size and easy to use. It's like an extension of my eyes so I caan share how I see the world.
Summary: Execllent zoom, AA batteries convenient, Reliable, Optical zoom. An perfect choice for the outdoors person. Our last one traveled many miles --- giving many fine closeups of moose, bighorn, etc--- until it was dropped lens extended on a boulder.
I love this camera!! Beautiful pictures...amazing zoom!

Summary: I LOVE this camera..I bring it everywhere with me, it's an extension of my arm lol. I find the best pics don't come on the highest quality settings, but the level just below (depends what mode you're using). Took spectacular pictures on my recent trip to Cape Breton. Lifelike colours. I love the zoom om this camera. I will be upgrading to the new Olympus UZ with a 30X zoom. This is a great camera is you want to save some money..
Summary: La SP-560 UZ, es una joya desde todo punto de vista no encuentro algún detalle verdaderamente significativo que opaque este producto. Para conseguir otra cámara mejor quizás sea mejor pasar de una ULTRAZON a una DSLR de una vez por todas. Ya que con esta cámara estas trabajando al borde de un equipo profesional reflex aunque con ciertas reservas y con una enorme versatilidad.
Summary: Put simply a great camera that consistently produces high-quality pictures. This camera approaches SLR quality. Good Points: 1. On AUTO setting takes great pictures. The others take some work. 2. Many options for getting the right picture. 3. Great view screen visible in daylight. 4. Two Levels of macro for up close. 5. Shadow correction. 6. Battery life even with the flash is great! 7. Uses AA batteries. I recommend NI-CAD OR NMH for long life. 8.
Summary: I am a huge canon Elph fan. I think they are great portable camera, that take great photos. But, the zoom on the canon are virtually non-existant. My son is a swimmer and I could never get action shots of him swimming because I was too far in the stands. I was at a swim meet and the women next to me had the Olympus 550uz. I was watching her zoom across the pool to take pictures of her kids. I was amazed.
