This camera is great! in the higher iso's there is a great deal of noise but that is camera history. Just learn how to control aperature and shutter time and you will take great photos.[...]

I really like the quality of the photographs and the ease of the use of the camera. The only thing that I don't like is the batteries are not rechargeable and the auto focus has some minor issues but other than that it is a great camera for the price.

By Light BrainedVerified Reviewer from Sunnyvale, CA on 9/20/2007
Pros:
Good Value, Nice zoom range
Cons:
No stabilization if audio
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Olympus SP-560 UZ Digital Camera:

I read through the manual and figured out that
the image stabilization is not available if audio is turned on in Movie mode. I would have preferred sD card option rather than xD.

Other than these it seems to be excellent camera.
