Summary: does what it is supposed to do, however pictures in mediocre light such as cloudy day are at best mediocre. Some minor distortion in the lens visible only in some pictures. All in all good camera with not so good lenses.
Summary: As a pretty happy owner of Olympus SP550UZ, I borrowed this latest version, SP570UZ to tested it out for several days under various conditions. I immediately saw few similarity and few non-similarity with this camera to the SP550UZ that I owned. From now on, I am dropping the SP and UZ reference and just calling them "550" and "570". Let me hit the good points first.
Excerpt: "...of the 60's, the last Olympus digital compact camera I bought was the C-5050UZ (2002) with it's peerless f/1.8 aspherical lens that is among the best cameras of dozens that I've owned since I was a shutterbug in my youth, and later as a professional wedding photographer - 'until death do us part!' Six years down the track I've developed an interest in bird photography (as distinct from brides) and having switched to digital completely, I bought ...
Pros: I know of no other in its class that offers that zoom range
Cons: SP - 570 UZ RAW (ORF) Files are unsupported by Photoshop CS3
Excerpt: "...in compact cameras like the Olympus SP-570 UZ, a certain amount of quality is lost in the image.

Summary: Tra le numerose macchine fotografiche che possiedo e che ho posseduto, ci sta anche questa Olympus SP 570 . Il corpo macchina ha una buona ergonomia anche se non proprio eccellente . Infatti tenendolo per un tempo prolungato in mano, tendo a stancarmi, cosa che con altre macchine difficilmente mi succede . I materiali e la costruzione sono invece molto buoni a mio parere .
Summary: Como algunas opiniones por acá dicen.. muy buenas prestaciones, el anillo es interesante, toda su ergonomia y muchas cosas mas. Creo que lo mas importante deberia ser la calidad de la imagen y para mi esta Olympus se ha quedado muy corta, la tengo desde octubre y creo que prefiero utilizar mi Canon A510 (que no tiene nada de especial... bueno si, exclentes imagenes), que seguir utilizando la Oly.
Summary: REPENTINAMENTE EN FORMA INEXPLICABLE LA OLYMPUS SP-570-UZ, DEJA DE FUNCIONAR, POR MÁS QUE LA CUIDÉ COMO NIÑA BONITA, PARECE ALGO QUE VIENE YA PROGRAMADO DE ANTEMANO Y ZAS, SE PARÓ LA CÁMARA. LA OLYMPUS MODELO SP-570UZ MI CONSENTIDA, ESTABA CONTENTO Y FELIZ LA COMPRÉ EL 4/12/2009, Y ZACATAS, REPENTINAMENTE UN DÍA, SE BLOQUEA EL BOTÓN PRINCIPAL (FUN/OK) Y QUEDA MUERTA LA CÁMARA. ACTUALMENTE ESTÁ EN MANOS DEL CONCESIONARIO AUTORIZADO DE REPARACIÓN DE OLYMPUS.
