DigiCamReview.co.ukOlympus SP 500 UZ review at DigiCamReview : Our friend Joshua Waller from DigiCamReview has published his Olympus SP500 UZ digital camera review. The Olympus SP 500 features 6 Megapixels, 21 scene modes, auto exposure and full manual control and aperture and shutter priority. The Olympus SP-500 UZ boasts a bright (1:2.8-3.7) 10x optical zoom that covers a 38-380mm focal range (35mm camera equiv.). The Olympus SP-500UZ digital camera features an extra-large 6.4cm LCD for framing shots, and naturally, also to enjoy comfortable viewing of the results. From iESP autofocus through to spot and multi-spot AF with a selectable AF area offering 143 points and, of course, manual focus, photographers dictate the level of control they require.
Olympus SP 500 UZ review at DigiCamReviewOlympus SP500 UZ - Auto focus
According to Joshua Waller: "The camera is fairly quick to switch on and take photos, being ready in around two seconds. Focusing seemed fairly quick. The playback mode is a bit sluggish, with photos taking a second or two before displaying when going from photo to photo - however the zoom is very quick. The camera shutter response seemed very quick when pre-focused, with a response time of around 0.1 seconds. Shot to shot time was average, with a delay of around 2 seconds between shots without flash."

Olympus SP-500 UZ camera - Noise and Saturation
Joshua continues: "Outside, the camera has rich colour, with good saturation and contrast. There was good detail although some images seemed a little soft. Noise seemed low for ISO100 photos. I turned up the quality to maximum to avoid jpeg artefacts. Exposure seemed very good with detail visible in the white goose, and in the darker shadows. The camera did a good job focusing the majority of the time, with low light focusing aided by the focus assist lamp. I did not notice vignetting in photos, nor did I notice barrel or pincushion distortion."

Olympus SP 500 UZ - Operation
"The camera is easy to use, the menu system is easy to use and there is a good layout of buttons and controls, although the abundance of features and options are accessed mainly through the menu system which could cause some people problems. The camera speed is good, with a good switch on time, quick focusing time, excellent shutter response, good flash recharge time, slightly sluggish / slow playback mode, quick menus, and fairly slow continuous shooting," concludes Joshua.
