Summary: This camera practically does everything for you, yet allows flexibility unseen in other brands. High-speed sequential shooting is un-surpassed. 10MP is still ample resolution to print a 16x20.
Higher performance for those not quite ready for a digital SLR.

Excerpt: I bought this camera second-hand from a photographer friend of mine. I needed a higher-quality camera than my old point-and-shoot, but wasn't quite ready to put in the money or the time learning to use a digital SLR. This baby has been a total gem; it's easy to navigate and use - even if you're like me and loath picking up an instruction manual. I've had great experience using the camera in a variety of settings - live band show, outdoor photoshoots, live theatre, and...
Excerpt: I love my Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera! I bought it when I was pregnant with our first daughter, in anticipation of all the baby pictures we would want to take. It has been perfect for that and practically any other kind of picture we want! There are tons of settings to try or the auto method takes great pictures, too. Someday I want to graduate to an SLR (which I will of course buy from Olympus as I love their cameras!
Summary: to d rosenfeld in wayland mass. sounds like you have warrenty issues. I have and use the 570 regularly, and have excellent battery life, the battery meter is on the upper rt area of the lcd screen. as to the plastic contact cover for the optional flash assy, what would one have them use? all it does is protect the contacts it covers. autozoom would be cool, but I am not that picky. anyway, Warrenty!!!! old bean!
Summary: Awesome camera, small enough to take anywhere, yet large enough to use professionally. I really love the fact that its easy to use / operate / understand...actually, after I bought the 1st one, I bought another for back-up!
Excerpt: I truly like the Olympus SP-570 UZ digital camera, it's capable of doing so much, but yet very easy to handle. Also the 20x optical zoom and the 10 Megapixel resolution is great. All photos come out fantastic!
Summary: this is the perfect camera to take your photography hobby to the next level,with 10 mega pixels and 20 times zoom you can really do whatever you need, and it has other lenses you can add on to zoom out more, or add a polorizing filter, or colored lenses. the only thing i dont like is image stabilization is no good at the most extreme end of digital zoom, so a tripod and a remote shutter release switch is a must,even then if its a hot day the thermal rays will make your...
Summary: Olympus SP-570 UZ 10.0 Megapixel: Excellent high resolution digital camera, nice size for those people like me who used 35mm cameras, and like that size and feel -- and it has an easy control zoom like the earlier 35mm cameras. The camera I bought through Ebay was in outstanding condition, original with accessories in the original box, including strap, instructions, download cords, batteryy charger, batteries, etc. The smaller 2GB M+ card [available at Radio Shack, etc.
sp-570UZ - Excelent "bridge" camera with a hotshoe
20 March 2010
Summary: The good: Small, but weighty. Feels solidly built, and has nice ergonomics. Feels very comfortable in one's hand. Unlike the vast majority of "bridge" cameras these days, including almost all of the other Olympus SP series cameras, this one (570 only) has a hotshoe, allowing you to use a separate flash and (thus) also allowing you to BOUNCE the flash. (If you know ANYTHING about photographic lighting, you know that bounce flash is vastly superior to straight-on flash.
