The Olympus SP-570UZ may not be a DSLR however it’s clearly patterned on one. The folks over at Infosync World took the SP-570UZ for a spin and had mixed feelings about it. Garnering a rating of 73%, the Olympus SP-570UZ is a "good" prosumer camera, which includes an impressive 20x, zoom and image stabilization.
The body is a winner too and the interface was surprisingly intuitive. However the camera is not without faults. It only support for xD cards, the imaging sensor is a little too small and the camera also produces fringing and distortion at certain settings.
"The only thing hampering the SP-570UZ from a sure-fire recommendation is its so-so, point-and-shoot sized imaging-sensor, which performs well for its class but undermines the camera's prosumer appeal. Nevertheless, if you're looking for a functional bridge between a compact and a DSLR, the SP-570UZ could fit the bill."
