Olympus SP-500 UZ review

This camera probably does take excellent pictures for some people but for some reason almost all of MY pictures kept coming out blurry. I took it back to the store and the Photo Manager suggested that I purchase something with Image Stability. So I returned the Olympus and purchased a Canon S3 IS that just came out. The Olympus has great features and is easy to use but the lack of Image Stabilty made my pictures look terrible.... you really have to have a steady hand especially when you use zoom.

Problems:

No Image Stabilty meant blurry pictures for me. For this reason alone I returned the camera.
