I love my Olympus SP-570 UZ Digital Camera! I bought it when I was pregnant with our first daughter, in anticipation of all the baby pictures we would want to take. It has been perfect for that and practically any other kind of picture we want! There are tons of settings to try or the auto method takes great pictures, too. Someday I want to graduate to an SLR (which I will of course buy from Olympus as I love their cameras!) but this is a fabulous camera to use while working up to that. It is great quality and able to do many different things that a regular point and shoot wouldn't be able to do. My only issue with this camera is the same one that I have with all of them. I can't get a picture to focus if I turn off the auto flash. I've read the instruction manual, so I don't know if I just missed it or what, but I find this very irritating. I picked this particular camera because of it's "image stabilization" option. It does produce a better picture without the auto flash than other cameras I have used, but still not what I want.
