10 MP (Megapixels).

Zoom range
Class-beating 26-520mm (35mm equivalent) range. Not only can it go really wide at 26mm to fit everybody into the photo, but that 520mm at the telephoto end is also handy for capturing a faraway subject.

Video / Movie mode
You can zoom the lens while capturing video, but sound recording is disabled. If you wish to record sound along with the movie, then only digital zoom is possible.

LCD screen
2.7 inches.

Image stabilization system
Lens-based vibration reduction mechanism.

Yes, yours truly bought the SP-570UZ on the spur of the moment. Well, I knew what I wanted in a bridge (SLR-like) digital camera, and the Olympus fits my needs perfectly. I’ve created a Flickr gallery for my Olympus SP-570UZ photos, and I wrote a short blog post celebrating my first three online pics.
