Summary: Takes great pictures and has a tone of features and settings to get the best pictures. A professional might like a camera like this but for me, it gets a bit complicated and literally I needed to download and print an entire instructional manual to figure out all the features.
Summary: I am not a professional photographer, just enjoy taking pictures and for the most part this camera has been good to me. I really like many of the night shots, but really find myself just using the action setting for all(but that might be because I feel like I shake too much, and the quicker the...
Summary: I just want to warn potential users of three drawbacks to this camera. I had an earlier, good version 5060 but Olympus sent me this one to replace it when they said it was not repairable after 4 years of use. (I was no longer made).
good, not great...but probably the best deal for under $200 with 10 MP

Summary: Its a decent camera, not as close to a SLR as I would have expected from the reviews I read before buying. But pretty decent anyway. I bought the telephoto and macro lens adapters, they are not worth spending the money for, the camera has enough lens capacity without them and they are hard to get a...
Summary: La tapa del lente se sale en forma permanente. No tiene un modo de ajuste dejando al lente sin proteccion. Luego, estando guardada en su bolso, al extraerla y habiendola guardado apagada y con la tapa del lente puesto, la encontre encendida y con su lente expandido.
Summary: This camera is an excellent value. Very good performance and great zoom lens. The focusing is slow in low light which can be a problem for candid shots. It feel right in my hand and has many very useful features. I recommend it for all but the professional.
Great automatic camera which allows flexible programming

Summary: I purchased this camera as a step up from an old Olympus Camedia, 5 megapixel with a 10x zoom. Its programs, especially in Scene mode, are much improved and easier to use. The flip up flash is a good feature because it can be used to prevent the flash from accidentally going off in an area (such as...
Summary: After playing around with this camera for a week, I can cheerfully say that this is what Olympus SP570UZ should have been in the first place. The Olympus SP565UZ (I am cutting out the SP and UZ from this point on) is not only smaller and lighter then 570 but it also got auto focus and AUTO-ZOOM...
Summary: I have had the camera for about a month now and am spending a lot of time learning how to use it. It is a liitle smaller than I imagined but as I only have full use of one hand, it is very satisfactory. There are many very nice features, one that I really like is Panorama. It works very well.
