Olympus D-580

Editor's Review

Pocket-sized and simple to use, the Olympus D-580 makes digital photography easy for anyone. The D-580 is a true point & shoot, with fully automated controls that take the guesswork out of taking pictures and let you concentrate on finding the perfect shot. Preset scene modes let you take pictures in any conditions, a 3x optical zoom gets you close to your subjects, and a sliding lens cover protects the D-580's lens from scratches.

Not too spiffy (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

It's a decent camera that takes decent photos's but the biggest set back is both the battery life and the view finder. Firstly the manual viewfinder is off (at least on mine) trying to line the crosshairs takes a little manual calibration, more work then I'd want to go through with every picture. All in all that isn't too bad if you're just taking snap shots, but when you actually want to take decent photos you must use the digital view finder to see what picture you're actually going to receive, and this drains the battery fast... I didn't even have my camera on for an hour before the battery light started flashing. But if you are to turn the display off the batteries will last almost forever.

I plan on selling the camera and buying the olympus stylus, which I have had much better experiences with.

battery does not last if you are not careful (anonymous — 07/18/2006)

I made the mistake of not closing the sliding cover a couple of times, this ate up the batteries, it is a good thing I have spare double AA's, also the sliding cover sometimes sticks, if your hands a slippery this may be a long term problem. The last complaint I have is the Olympus is a propriatory memory card, I can not use this card on any other cameras (I also own a Nikon, and Panasonic camcorder with 4 meg. sd car)
Other than that the camera is great
