Olympus SP-560 UZ review

My third current Oly camera, next to E-330 and E-3. Image quality is obviously not comparable to the SRLs : it is good to very good in enough light, but suffers and struggles in low light.
But it is a fun and versatile camera to always have lying around in the car or wherever, to capture all those moments that present themselves when you don't have the SLR nearby. The zoom, starting from real wide-angle, is an awesome feature in that respect : this really turns the camera into a good-for-any-situation performer.

Problems:

Not the easiest camera to get good results out of in insufficient light, but what did you think ?
