Upon first glance, the Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera looks like your traditional digital SLR camera. It is ergonomically designed, allowing you to control the camera with ease.
The shutter button and other function controls are placed where they should be placed. Along with this, the vivid 2.7-inch makes it easy to compose beautiful shots. The camera is quite light too, which means you can take it anywhere you go.
Aside from portability though, the Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera gets two thumbs up because of its superior optics and power. Thanks to its 10-megapixel image sensor, the camera is able to capture a ton of detail even when you crank up the resolution to 3648 x 2736 pixels.

With 20x optical zoom and 5x digital zoom, youâ€™ll capture details from a much more personal perspective. Likewise, the camera has 13.5fps sequential shooting capabilities, which will let you capture action shots with greater ease.
Image blurring is history with the Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera. Not only does this camera focus well, it also has an anti-blur solution which is composed of Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization and Digital Image Stabilization. The former helps eliminate the effects of your shaky hands while the latter helps maintain image crispness in every situation.
Whatâ€™s more, this camera features full Manual exposure settings to give you creative control of your images. More casual users will like this camera too since it has a lot of preset shooting modes. And even under dark lighting conditions, youâ€™ll still take great photos since a flash accessory can easily be attached. Everyone will surely be pleased.
With an internal memory of 45 megabytes, youâ€™ll take a lot of pictures from the get-go. However, if that’s not enough, youâ€™ll be pleased to know that this camera has support for xD-Picture Cards, which has capacities of 1 gigabyte or 2 gigabytes. Along with the fact that this camera has a long battery life, the picture taking action will never stop until youâ€™re done.
For professional-quality performance at an affordable price, the versatile Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera is an incredible choice. Itâ€™s ideal for everyone, from casual users to more seasoned point-and-shoot enthusiasts.
