Olympus SP-565UZ

Announced Aug 25, 2008 •
10 megapixels | 2.5 screen | 26 – 520 mm (20×)

Poor AF, most of the frames are not in focus at all. Sometimes there is NO ANY focused point in the whole frame though the shooting conditions were pretty well. I've tried all AF methods available in the camera but without any significant improvement. Noise floor is too high and many distortions can be observed even at ISO200. The ratio of good shots to the total shots done at indoor is ~1/30, while outdoor ratio is ~5/30.

I have shot several Hundred images with the Olympus SP-565UZ over several months. My one complaint is Each and Every photo needs a Post Shooting ~ Tweak of some sort. I use the Un Sharp 95 % of the time, due to lack of sharpness. I must also up the contrast. I would have expected a much sharper lens. It could just be MY camers lense, and I got a Limon?. OR NOT?
