I've been reading lots of forum posts on here about the new SP-570UZ and I was tempted enough to buy one. I thought you might like to check out pictures I have taken with it. I'm an amateur, but they are real world, unedited photos straight out of the camera - including the panoramic ones.

Some highlights from the gallery:

Flower shot: http://www.flickr.com/photos/2496088...7604190357110/

Magpie: http://www.flickr.com/photos/2496088...n/photostream/

Close up of my speaker (very low light, 20x zoom, noise on the vinyl print is there in real life): http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2353677298/

Panorama shot (processing performed entirely in camera): http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2370961349/

Here i've set up my camera on a tripod hooked up to a remote shutter release pointing out of a window in my house. The target is the little dome on top of the Co-Op supermarket in the distance.

Zero zoom image (26mm): http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2374153004/

Full zoom of camera (20x, 520mm): http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2373306337/

Camera with TCON-17 lens (34x, 880mm): http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/2374146432/

I think it's fair to say i'm loving this camera. I think the picture quality is great and the flexibility of that lens if brilliant. If you have any questions, let me know and i'll answer them!

Nice shots and holy zooooom!! I will be pulling the trigger on this one soon as I have decided this is the one that would best fit me. What xd cards are you using H or M type? Is there much if any difference between the two? Does the lens accept filters???

I'm using the M-type 2GB card - make sure you get an Olympus one if you want to shoot panoramas.

Type H is supposed to be faster, but I wanted 2GB of space. Writing both a RAW and JPEG file simultaneously takes about 7 seconds.

Apparently the lens will accept filters if you use the CLA-10 conversion ring. I have this and will be looking into filters shortly.

Good choice with the camera!

I am using Olympus H-1GB and Fuji H-2GB (Fuji-2GB was cheaper than Olympus-1GB :-| )

You can make panoramas with ALL cards!

Quite a lot of that is down to me because I am just getting into all this. I was playing with shutter speeds and aperture settings and stuff and just dumping anything up there. But the pics I highlighted I thought were spot on. I don't think you could reasonably expect more from a non SLR...

jhbodle, I think donalDuck needs glasses, or a serious change of attitude. I found your pics interesting, and it was me who favorited your (Irish) Setter pic. I have a white German Shepherd pup that is my granddog, actually.

Good camera and awesome zoom range, looks like your having fun with it and thats what really counts... Robert
