Hutsul "Gene", Amazon
24 November 2013
  • Summary: Working very well so far as I'm learning how to use the various features compared to an analog camera. I like having the viewfinder instead of just the screen on the back. I wish the cap would stay on better and it had a longer strap.

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.

Olympus SP-590UZ

R. Johnstone, Amazon
22 February 2010
  • 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.

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.

Olympus 590UZ

R. Cunningham, Amazon
30 January 2010
  • 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.

Great Camera, I'm still playing with the different settings

School Marm "Sara J", Amazon

  • Summary: I am an amateur photographer. I take pictures at parties, trips and special occasions. A friend of mine recommended this camera. I'll be traveling to Europe later this year, and wanted a good easy-to-use camera to bring with me. I really love the 26x zoom feature of this camera.

Poor owners manual

Janice Carver, Amazon
12 October 2009
  • Summary: The camera performs ok. The owners manual was of very poor quality. I even used a magnifying glass to try to read some of the blurred symbols. Before purchasing camera, go to Olympus home page and lookup online version of owners manual. The printed version is just as bad as this.
