Olympus SP-560 UZ review

This camera is an improvement over its predecessor, the SP-550. It starts up faster.focuses better in low light, and has a slightly deeper buffer for high speed burst mode shots. It also has a few new modes, plus face detection.
I like the 3 megapixel Hi-speed burst mode - you catch things you would rarely see in slower burst modes.


It does not excel at night photography, although I got a couple of very sharp moon shots. I tried to take a picture of my wife just prior to New Years fireworks - regular flash, slow synch flash, no flash. The results were less than brilliant - overexposed face, underexposed background. I took several pictures with a Fuji F20 from the same position and both shots looked brilliant in comparison. It's ok for me - I didn't buy this for night photography.
