Olympus SP-570 UZ 10MP Digital Camera W/20x Zoom: A Diamond in the Garbage Dump

Personal Electronics buzz
11 August 2009
  • Excerpt: The Olympus SP-570 UZ 10 MP digital camera has the feel and performance of a SLR camera, but maintains the ease of a point and shoot. I am a novice photographer. Some say, my pictures are professional grade. This comment comes from family members, friends and all of the church groups I gladly photograph. My day job, working for the sanitation department for the city isn't pretty. My photography hobby takes me out of the rubble for brief periods of time.

Olympus SP-570UZ Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
30 March 2009
  • Conclusion: A sticking point which some will either quickly like or dislike is the manual flash trigger. To use the flash it needs to be manually popped for it to function, even in auto mode. This may frustrate some users who forget to flick the switch and miss a shot. Sometimes you just want to turn the camera on and know that you can shoot immediately on auto mode and everything will be considered in camera by the camera without user involvement.

  • Conclusion: Olympus SP-570 UZ Megazoom digital camera Where the Megazoom camera proved good for 10x optical zoom a few years ago, the Olympus SP-570 UZ doubles this range. The compact size remained untouched and the amount of pixels increased, as expected. The concept is solid as a rock and has already proven its worth in practice. Still, we have to make a side note about the evolution the SP series of Olympus is undergoing.

Olympus SP-570UZ Digital Camera Review

Hardware Secrets
22 September 2008
  • Summary: A digital SLR camera requires carrying a large camera case with multiple lenses and dealing with sometimes inconvenient lens swapping. The SP-570 offers a wide range of features that meet those of SLRs without the necessity for extra lenses and extra costs. In fact, this camera offers a lot for its mid-range price point. The ability to shoot in RAW and to control all of the camera’s functionality will be great when you want to do some impressive photography.

Olympus SP-570 UZ Review

Digital Camera Review
20 May 2008
  • Excerpt: The folks at Olympus pioneered the long zoom point-and-shoot digicam with the introduction of the 10x-zoom C2100 in 2000, and they obviously believe that size really does matter. "In addition to the batteries provided with the camera, the following types of battery can be used... AA Alkaline Batteries, AA NiMH Batteries (rechargeable batteries).
  • Pros: Excellent image quality and plenty of resolution, Impressive 20x zoom, Dual image stabilization, Excellent Super Macro mode, Hot shoe expands flash options
  • Cons: High ISO settings are very noisy, Convoluted and complex menu system, Control-by-wire zoom ring is imprecise and jerky
