Olympus SP-560 UZ review

I received this camera 11/15/07, and really love it! It was purchased as a replacement/upgrade for my almost worn out "UZI", Olympus C2100UZI.

The Olympus menus are very familiar, and there are many new options and features to explore.

I have, with great success, used both the Olympus TCON17 and BMacro, with the attached Galileo Adapter and Delrin Collar. With these attached the widest focal length is about 21mm (digital).

For further comments and my user testing, please visit my SP560 galleries on Pbase, user name donnar.


Occasional focus lock problems at wider zoom, even with no peripherals attached. This may be due to the low light conditions at this time of year, and the lack of contrast...I will follow up when the light gets better in the spring.
