A great quality camera.

  • 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!

Olympus SP 570 UZ

  • Summary: This camera is very good in all areas, plenty of mega pixels (10) long zoom (20X) optical image stabilization plenty of dedicated buttons for the important functions meaning less menu searching and every other bell and whistle I have heard of. Don't expect great low light performace from this or any other long zoom do everything point and shoot camera. At the long end of this zoom I feel a tripod or mono pod should be used no image stabilizer could be adequite for that.

Olympus SP-570 UZ a real winner!

  • Summary: I use this product for recreational photography and for photos of all our members during our monthly wine club tastings.You can not beat the 20X zoom on this camera and it is really nice to be able to zoom using the manual ring, instead of the switches/toggles on many cameras. It did not take any time at all to get use to this feature.I have only had the camera a few weeks now, so have not scratched the surface on the learning curve area.
  • Pros: Bright LCD, Comfortable Controls, Easy To Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Great Image Quality, Image Stabilization, Strong Construction

Olympus SP-570 UZ 10.0 Megapixel

  • Summary: I've been tracking these cameras since they came out, and they were just out of my price range for a backup camera. But, after shooting a job and realizing I wanted a longer focal length for the digital, it seemed smarter to get the whole camera instead of just a new lens. Since getting it I've had a blast playing with the panorama modes. I've run tests at full optical and digital zoom.

"I like the feel, but disappoints in some regards"

itsbygrayce, CNET
19 October 2008
  • Pros: I like the weight and feel in my hands and it has a good response time. The batteries last a good amount of time. Turning the lens to zoom in and out is a bit slow. It just doesn't seem sensitive and reactive to my fingers.
  • Cons: The batteries seem to suddenly die with no warning. The corners of my pictures are often darkened, especially when zoomed in. I also see digital noise when I look at pictures full sized, or crop.
