Olympus SP-570 UZ review

 

Once you mention the Olympus SP-570's 20x zoom lens, the rest of the camera's feature set seems almost superfluous; with an atypically wide-angle lens for any class of single-body cameras plus an exceptionally long telephoto view, the lens is the...

Lots of helpful and useful features.

Slow; big; manual zoom ring on lens not responsive enough; can't zoom in movie capture.

Poor performance diminishes the Olympus SP-570 UZ's potential as an otherwise solid megazoom.

Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera

 

The king of the high-zoom cameras offers sharp long-distance pics and quality ergonomics.

20x optical zoom is the highest in class ; iESP focus targeting

Delayed shutter release ; Autofocus sometimes searches fuzzily

We also had a bit of trouble getting the autofocus to lock onto targets in low light. The autofocus would scan from one end to the other trying to sharpen the image, and sometimes took up to 2 seconds to fully lock on to a focal point. In bright...

Olympus's entry into the megazoom class delivers the greatest magnification rating of any of the products we tested for our roundup. At 20X, photos taken at a distance of up to 30 feet from the subject looked as though the photographer had...

Olympus SP-570 UZ

 

This innovative shooter is loaded with features, among them a 20X zoom lens. It's a worthy purchase for just about anyone who wants to get closer to the action.

Easily adjustable 20X zoom lens. Perfect Shot Preview. Shadow adjustment.

Image quality is inconsistent. Limited video. Irksome lens-focusing sound.

Review: Olympus SP-570 UZ

 

Cursed with an ambiguous, alphanumeric moniker, the SP-570UZ (that's one hell of a sexy name there, Olympus) is suffering from an identity crisis. It lies...

Stunning macro function makes big shots out of the smallest subjects. Versatile controls soothe the enthusiasts while auto presets comfort the n00bs. Excellent manual. Top mounted hotshoe makes swapping external flash options easy

Pretend-professional zoom requires two hands. Zoom shots without a tripod can come out blurry. Stubborn clinging to proprietary xD media is irritating: Resistance is futile, Olympus

Olympus SP 570 UZ Review

 

Olympus SP-570 UZ Megazoom digitale camera Waar een aantal jaar geleden de Megazoom camera goed was voor 10x optische zoom, verdubbelt de Olympus SP-570 UZ dit bereik. Het compacte formaat is gehandhaafd en niet geheel onverwacht is het aantal...

Olympus SP 570 UZ review

 

In August 2005, Olympus introduced the very first camera from the new SP-5 series; the SP-500 UZ camera. At the time it was a Megazoom camera that certainly featured high specifications; six Megapixels, a maximum ISO of 400 and an optical zoom with a...

Where the Megazoom camera proved good for 10x optical zoom a few years ago, the Olympus SP-570 UZ doubles this range. The compact size remained untouched and the amount of pixels increased, as expected. The concept is solid as a rock and has already...

Olympus SP-570 UZ Review

 

The new SP-570 UZ is the latest in a long line of super-zoom cameras from Olympus. In the distant digital past, Olympus was one of the first manufacturers to market a superzoom camera, and their C-2100UZ model, fondly referred to as the 'UZI' by its...

More than a year after Olympus' introduction of the SP-550UZ, it is clear that the company takes its return to the superzoom segment seriously. The SP-560UZ already resolved some of the issues that plagued its predecessor, and with the SP-570UZ the...
