Editor's Review

Olympus offers a new option for those seeking the ease of a compact digital with the control of an SLR, and packs a 26x optical zoom, the longest lens on the market. The SP-590UZ features 12-megapixel resolution that allows users to create their own photo-quality, poster-size prints. A 26x wide-angle optical dual image stabilized zoom also ensures that users will be able to get up close to the action without sacrificing photo quality. Additionally, the SP-590UZ's tough construction protects it from anything the elements can throw at it. A 2.7-inch Advanced HyperCrystal III LCD screen makes taking and reviewing photos easier than ever.

The more I use it, the more I like it. (Bill Startt — 10/19/2009)

I bought my camera on line based on specifications only. I have had it for about two months and the more I use it, the more I like it. As in most all products it has its good points and bad points. However my expereince is the good points exceed the bad. For my photo hobby this camera meets or exceeds my needs. This camera has exceeded my expectaions.

Great Camera (Donna — 07/14/2009)

I did a lot of research before choosing this camera and I think it paid off. I absolutely love it. I shoot mostly outdoor nature type photos. With the 20x zoom I have gotten some great photos of wildlife. I love the many scene choices. There is so much flexibility here without having to be a professional photographer. We just recently went to some fourth of July fireworks and the video I shot of the finale was great. I can't believe how good the sound is and how long you can shoot for with a 4 gig card. I also use the macro a lot and find it really nice. This is my third digital camera and far surpasses anything else I have owned. Image quality is good. Images are great even in low light (in fact I rarely use the flash) Video is good. Scene options cover almost every eventuality. Battery life is excellent. In short, I really love this camera! My only complaint is that I'm constantly afraid it will get stolen, oh well, I guess I just don't let it out of my sight!
