Summary: I like it because it has the features of a point and shoot as well as some of the advance features of an SLR. It's easy to use and the viewfinder can work well for left eye dominant as well as right eye dominant people. It includes a flash as well as a shoe for removable ones.
Summary: The camera takes very good pictures. It is packed with many features of an DSLR. Because, it has so many features that you have to go through layers of the menu to get to some of them, but this is typical for compact cameras. The camera is easy to hold and light weight.
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.
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 camera is soo versatile that you can take ANY picture and it usually is a PERFECT ONE. I would recommend this for all grades of photographers and get neat pictures to show or enter in competition. It is a must camera with the only one lens to worry about.
Summary: I have owned the Olympus SP-57OUZ Digital Camera for a little over a month, and continue to find reasons to be very satisfied with my choice. For years, I was wed to Canon SLR's (pre-digital), and was content but not thrilled when I switched to digital.
Summary: I bought this camera early in April, from another vendor. I didn't want to wait until Amazon's April 15 release date! My newfound hobby is photographing high school rugby games, so I am by no means a professional and truly don't know much at all about photography at all.
Summary: Eventually, digital photography will offer the same quality as film, but until that happens this camera is the perfect compromise for a film guy getting into digital. Nobody needs to explain the concept of "optical stabilization" to a film guy, and this camera has it.
Summary: Thanks Amazon. The camera arrived very quickly and was packed well. Olympus is really on to something with this design. This is a "substancial" camera which sets it apart from the crowd of superzooms. When you pick it up, it feels and looks like a DSLR.
