Hey! You should know that Olympus has released a newer version of this product: the Olympus SP-800UZ.

Olympus SP-565 UZ

We've given the SP-565 UZ a grade of C+.

Editor's Review

The SP-565 UZ has since been replaced by the SP-800 UZ.  Here's what we had to say about the SP-565 when it was first announced:

A slight downgrade from the more advanced SP-570 UZ, the Olympus SP-565 UZ retains the incredible 20x optical zoom, but what's missing are the extra features: no RAW file format, smaller LCD display, smaller ISO range, etc. Besides the aforementioned zoom capability, the SP-565 UZ has full manual controls to give the user complete control, but with dual-image stabilization and face detection, the camera provides some welcome assistance.

The licht champ you can carry (GOPALA KRISHNAN — 04/26/2009)

I had canon, Sony and Kodak digital cameras. I have a Canon DSLR also. I puchased this 565uz after going through a lot of reviews and confused between sony H50, Canona Powershot Sx an finally got this little by stong beauty. GIves excellent pictures near pr far, day or night smiling or weeping. Easy to handle, friendly menus ( in fact i had a smaller olympus E series which i donated to one of my relatives) ans hence menu was familiar to me. The overall results in these few days are fantastin like a honey moon. I advise serious non professionals to take this less luggabe more comfort beauty. No regrets in the money spent.

Olympus SP-565 UZ (Rob — 02/26/2009)

I sell quite a few camera's and I'll give you the short scoop on 4 different digital cameras. First off.. The Nikon is worlds above the Olympus SP-565! And is still better then the Panasonic DMC-FZ28 and Canon SX10 IS!! I own 2 Nikons and the image quality is best of all including the Canon. The Canon comes in second with Panasonic and Olympus coming in 3rd and forth. The Panasonic is great all around and best for short video. The Canon is great for the price with very good image quality.
Bottom line... To answer your question.. I would go with the Nikon. If price is an issue then go with the Canon. If you want something that would be great on price, good for taking short video clips of whatever and has good image quality then fo with the Panasonic. The Olympus in my opinion is not as good as the other 3. Not when you can get the Canon or the Panasonic for the same price!
