Olympus SP-570 UZ Video
The Olympus E-P1 is an otherwise excellent enthusiast compact camera hampered by some performance problems and the lack of a viewfinder and built-in flash.
Reasonably priced for an interchangeable-lens model, with the same high-quality photos of its siblings, the E-PL1 nevertheless suffers from slow performance that makes it a poor choice for snapshooters looking to upgrade.
This extremely sluggish shooter is a poor choice when compared to less-expensive alternatives.
While it's a solid budget dSLR with good photo quality and a host of advanced features, the Olympus E-620 still falls behind the competition on most counts.
The Olympus FE-170's price is hard to beat; its performance, not so much.
A megapixel bump and improved performance update the original Verve, but this stylish camera retains its predecessor's limited zoom range and average image quality.
Despite the attraction of a weather-resistant body, the 7-megapixel Olympus Stylus 710 falls short with disappointing performance and overprocessed images.
For going from snorkeling to rock climbing to everyday life, the Olympus Stylus Tough 8000 is a good choice, though its photos and performance can be disappointing.
This beauty-challenged Olympus offers unmatched build quality, snappy performance, and top resolution for its class, but low-light shooters and metering novices may prefer alternatives.
With its follow up to the E-P1, Olympus doesn't address the lack of a flash or the E-P1's performance woes, but does toss in a nice add-on EVF.
Olympus SP-570 UZ Review
The good: Lots of helpful and useful features.
The bad: Slow; big; manual zoom ring on lens not responsive enough; can't zoom in movie capture.
The bottom line: Poor performance diminishes the Olympus SP-570 UZ's potential as an otherwise solid megazoom.
