Olympus SP-590 UZ review
I still use my Oly 510-UZ more than any of my other Oly cameras, but I think Olympus has made a noticeable improvement with the 590-UZ. There are less exterior controls to confuse one, and the zoom is much better than the ring zoom on the previous model. The ELVf is good and has a calibrating knob. Nice big LCD, great focal length range, light weight, and simple controls make this a nice camera to use.
At $440 USD this is a good value camera. The Xd card would be better replaced with an SD card, but I have so many Xd cards from owning previous models, I can live with the extra cost/Mb of the Xd's.
No regrets thus far. I bought the previous model to this one last year and only kept it a few weeks before gladly selling it.
Lens cap is constantly falling off. This needs to be changed to a better design.
Auto-focus still delayed, but better than previous models.
The "beauty" portrait setting is a bit gimmicky, but for non-photoshoppers, it might come in handy.
Shutter lag still annoying.
