Olympus SP-560 UZ review

This is NOT a good camera ! Images lack quality, colour and precision (even in good dayllight). Why Olympus would tarnish its good name with such a dud is beyond me (I've owned 4 of their cameras).

. looks good, feels great in your hands
. indoor flash photos are ok


. soft images that lack detail and precision
. lots of noise at medium to low daylight
. movement in sports mode in morning daylight is always blurred (I photograph althletes)
. colours are warm and disappointing

Don't buy this camera is you like good clear and precise images. Im going back to using my Old Olympus 770 until I find a good replacement in another brand.

The 560 has been updated with the 570 - watch for the lab reports and owners reviews before buying one.
