Ease of Use

Buy.com really dropped the ball advertising this camera. The Zoom is incredible (20X), the Mega Pixels (10.0) are much more than adequate but, thats just the begining. The panoramic stitching is easy to use and the results are great. If you are a professional photographer, stick to SLRs but, if you just like taking pictures of sporting events, monuments, cityscapes, etc etc., this is the camera to get.

Product Overview

Body of an ultra-zoom. Soul of an SLR. With superior optics, power and portability, the SP-570 UZ provides a wealth of creative control without the expense of an SLR. Whether you're looking for 20x optical zoom or 13.5fps sequential shooting, this all-in-one, versatile, compact camera is great for outdoor, travel and sports photography.

20x WIDE-ANGLE LENS (f2.8-f4.5, 26-520mm equivalent). This amazingly powerful, ultra-compact 20x Optical Zoom gets you super close to the action while the wide-angle lens captures more of what you see.

DUAL IMAGE STABILIZATION. Forget about blur, thanks to this 2-in-1 anti-blur solution. Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization, which keeps your shot steady by compensating for camera shake, combines with Digital Image Stabilization to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.

FULL MANUAL CONTROL. The SP-570 UZ allows full Manual exposure settings for advanced creative control, yet it's easy enough for any family member to point-and-shoot beautiful images.

HOT SHOE FOR AN EXTERNAL FLASH. Quickly and easily attach a flash so you can take sharp, clear images under challenging lighting conditions. An optional wireless flash is also available.

FACE DETECTION. This technology tracks your subjects' faces and automatically focuses and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
