If only the lens would not stop working...

TJP9668, Amazon

  • 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.

Olympus SP-590UZ

R. Johnstone, Amazon

  • Summary: Full automatic to full control. A good range for the more ambitious amateur. Olympus should create a camera that allows lens filters. This doesn't without and extension tube and wide angle distortion. The cable that comes with the camera allows you to download to your computer. I'm using a 4 GB SD card but Olympus recommends a 2 GB card. It seems to be working. The camera comes with very little memory.

Olympus SP-590UZ 12MP Digital Camera

Erik B. Christensen, Amazon
11 February 2010
  • Summary: Bought this camera as a replacemnet for my Olympus SP-500 UZ. I like the extra wide angle as well as the 26X optical Zoom. Have taken about 1000 pictures since I bought it a month ago. It feels good to handle, even taking pictures with single hand holding, image stabilization works very well. It is an impressing camera.

The Olympus SP-590 UZ Digital SLR camera

  • Excerpt: Over the years I’ve collected my fair share of cameras. And one of the things I’ve learned about having a camera is that not every single camera is for every single shot. There are certain cameras for certain situations and over time, I think I’ve purchased a camera for every single event in my life. As a music artists, there are times where I need a camera that will give me a professional look from time to time.

Olympus 590UZ

  • Summary: This is a decent camera, with a really long lens. Lots of features will keep you busy learning. It's not a DSLR, but pic quality is adequate for most people. For the money,{around $300}, it's a great deal.

Easy Right Out Of The Box

E. T. Obrien "Timtruro", Amazon
22 January 2010
  • Summary: Pros: This camera was easy to use right out of the box. I am basically a point and click guy but the various programs allow a wide range of flexibility. I love the 26x zoom but do have trouble keeping it steady at 26x without a tripod or some other stabilization. The macro and landscape shots are great. Very light weight and priced right compared to Canon and Nikon models with fewer features.

  • Excerpt: I am very happy with the camera. Very good value for money and simple to use. I bought the camera 2 weeks ago and taken over 500 photos so far Image quality is excellent in good lighting conditions and average under poor conditions. Flash photography is good though i find it tends to be a tad an the blue side. Image stabilization is great in extreme telephoto mode though its best to brace against a steady object when using it. Colour and sharpness are excellent.
