It's okay

David Snyder, Amazon
4 June 2014
  • Summary: I don't use it that much, but when I do I find it's a bit too detailed for what I want. Just a little too complicated for someone who is only interested in amateur photography.

A rugged camera with an electronic viewfinder

ggnoreng, Ebay
12 June 2013
  • Summary: This is the third Olympus camera I've purchased in their SP series and probably the last to come with an electronic viewfinder. Each succeeding model has represented an improvement in performance and features and that is true with this model. Image quality is outstanding and the improvement in noise reduction was a relief for someone who does a lot of available light photography. Color rendering remained as warm as previous models, but that's not always a bad thing.

This is a great camera.

  • Summary: This Olympus camera is great. The zoom is the reason I bought this camera and it out performs my Canon SLR with a 300mm lens. The focus is very quick for a digital all-in-one and picture color is outstanding. Another great feature is the use of AA batteries instead of a dedicated battery that requires a special charger. If I run out of rechargeable AA's I can use alkaline AA's to tide me over.

A camera that does what it is supposed to do.

  • Summary: This is the fourth Olympus UZ that I have bought (C-720, SP-560, SP-565, SP-590). I just returned from a trip and was able to get some great wild life pictures using the zoom lens. The stabilization also helped as there were high winds and it was hard to steady the camera. I've had excellent results with every one of the cameras and have had no service problems.

Second TIme Around

Dixie Sutton, Amazon
21 June 2012
  • Summary: I bought this same model of camera about 3-4 years ago and I love it. It was my first digital SLR camera and I found it a great beginner as well as an advanced user camera. The screen got broken in an accident and I tried another model but was not happy. I was so happy to find this camera at a great price in the Amazon warehouse.

I would recommend this camera to anyone needing a small, versatile unit.

  • Summary: I purchased this camera to replace the same model which I have been using for several years, but dropped and broke. I really like the zoom range and all the features,menu options, etc. It uses the xD card so I can switch with my Olympus E-330 SLR. Two things are annoying: the lans cap is loose fitting (necessary due to the lens action) but there is no way to secure it other than the cord, which leaves it hanging in the way;it would also be nice to use a single...

Wish I had never purchased it

A Working Mom, Amazon
6 June 2011
  • Summary: Why I bought it: It sounded good "on paper" and in most of the reviews. Good things: I love that it takes AA batteries and it has had great battery life. I don't feel it is "cheap" feeling as some other reviewers have complained; it has a good weight with the batteries in it, not too heavy to hold all day. The picture quality is good when the pictures turn out right, but there are a lot of pictures that don't turn out...

If only the lens would not stop working...

TJP9668, Amazon
17 April 2011
  • Summary: I've had this camera for just 11 months - it replaced another Olympus SP series (earlier model) camera that ironically (?!?) had the EXACT SAME PROBLEM occur without any accidental or purposeful damage to it. Yesterday in the middle of a day of tourist photo shooting my lens stopped working - turn on the camera and the lens will not activate - no zoom, no wide angle, no capability of taking photos. The battery indicator is full.

  • Summary: Love the camera. I chose it because it has the option of optical viewfinder. I wouldn't want it any other way.
