(July 23, 2007) This image is of very high quality given that it was almost dark. This new camera I just received today is definitely a keeper! The Olympus SP-550UZ is certainly a worthwhile successor to the wonderful Olympus C-2100 UZ, which I just gave away to a relative.
Updated impression of the camera (posted July 25th, 2007) I opened my new 2GB xD card and put it in the camera, and unfortunately the card is so slow to record the photos!! The slow focussing of the camera also bothers me more than it did the first day I received it, but I can live with that. Are there faster xD cards? Also, I spend $50 for this xD cards, whereas I bought 2 much faster 2GB SD cards (of course, for a different camera) for only $5 each from buy.com! (Special deal, of course)
