Good but not Great camera

By Dasia from Seattle, WA on 06/03/2007


Cons:

Image Noise Above Iso 200, Poor Image Without Optimi, Long Lag Time

Describe Yourself:

Hobbyist/enthusiast

Pros:

18 Optical Zoom, Wide Angle, Comfortable Controls, Strong Construction, Bright Lcd

Best Uses:

Travel, Fun

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The zoom is fantastic but the actual image quality has me thinking about changing cameras already. For the average family shooter it is a very good all around camera. For someone like myself who is working toward being an amateur photographer it is just not quite good enough.

allmost as good as it gets

By Bob Verified Purchaser from Mount Holly, NJ on 03/19/2007


Describe Yourself:

Hobbyist/enthusiast

Pros:

Terrific Functionality, Great Zoom, Easy Setup, Strong Construction, Bright Lcd

Best Uses:

Fun, Travel

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

First of all, get an H type card rather than the M type, with the M type you lose some functionality. I have now had the camera 2 weeks and have tested it quite a bit and the pictures are superb. Some of the Screen presets are very useful, such as shooting through glass. It is important to read the manual to get full functionality, otherwise you will not get full use of the camera.

Olympus Sp-550 UZ User Review

By New SP 550 UZ Owner Verified Purchaser from Gulf Shores, AL on 03/16/2007


Cons:

Controls Not So Intuitive, Included Manual Too Vague, No Advanced Users Manual

Describe Yourself:

Casual User

Pros:

Well Built, Nice Features And Settings, Good Resolution, Accurate Colors, Looks Good

Best Uses:

Outdoors, Everyday

Bottom Line:

Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

The only real negative so far is that the included manual is not very helpful. For example it tells you that certain user modes can be customized and tells you what camera functions can be customized to the user modes, but not actually how to do it. No step by step instructions, and what buttons to push, etc. Hopefully Olympus is going to release an advanced users manual like they have for virtually all their other digicams. Aside from the one negative mentioned above,I love everything about this camera. The zoom range is amazing. It really reaches way out there. Macro shots from this camera are outstanding. Pretty amazing considering its long telephoto reach. This camera has great potential. Once I can get the hang of customizings user modes for my particular needs, I will probably consider this as one of my favorite cameras of all time.
