|Olympus SP-570 UZ storage capacity
However; this amount of storage capacity would be an overkill for a camera like the Olympus SP-570UZ, since the largest format (RAW) is around 15MB of size. Still, a maximum of 138 RAW pictures on a 2GB card is the limit and that might be a restriction to a fanatic user. To purchase one or two more xD cards of 2GB is a solution. If Olympus keeps on going ahead with the Megapixel race at the same speed as before, it is of great importance to enhance the storage capacity of the xD Picture card, or follow the example of ally Fujifilm to support the SDHC format.

Olympus SP-570 UZ frame speed

Making use of the maximum resolution of ten Megapixels. a frame speed of approximately 1.2 fps (JPEG) with a maximum of seven frames captured sequentially is not sufficient, but if you settle for a resolution of 5 Megapixels you can count on more than 7 fps and a maximum of 30 pictures sequentially. That makes the Olympus SP-570 UZ excellent for shooting action moments.
