From the Manufacturer

The 7.1-megapixel SP-320 digital camera from Olympus introduces state-of-the-art features that enable photographers of all skill levels to express their creative visions. With the convenience of over 30 shooting modes or the option of using manual settings for more creative control, the SP-320 is a highly versatile camera with superb ergonomic design, powerful enough for the advanced user yet simple enough for a beginner to capture incredible images. Available add-on accessory lenses, flashes, and underwater housing further expand the photographic options of the SP-320.

7.1-Megapixel Image Sensor for Superior Image Quality
The 7.1-megapixel CCD image sensor inside the SP-320 delivers high-quality images that are consistently sharp and vivid even in large-format prints--up to poster sizes as large as 16 by 20 inches.

High-Quality Olympus Lens Elements
Olympus photos are known worldwide for sharp, vibrant image quality. This is achieved through a number of key technologies, such as Olympus's high-refractive-index aspherical lens elements, designed specifically for digital cameras. The lens provides the equivalent of 38 to 114mm focal length, f2.8 to f4.9 in 35mm photography, with 15x combined total zoom (3x optical and 5x digital) to bring the action closer, and a Super Macro Mode that captures the most subtle details from as close as 0.8 inches (2 centimeters).

Olympus SP-320Z
The large 2.5-inch LCD can double as a picture viewer--
perfect for sharing pictures on the fly.
Large 2.5-Inch LCD
Composing and reviewing images is far easier when you don't have to strain. The 115,000-pixel anti-glare LCD enables you to view images in large and vivid detail. Now you don't have to download and print images each time you want to share them--you can treat your friends and family to a slide show right on the back of your camera.

Full Manual and Automatic Control
The Manual, Aperture Priority, and Shutter Priority modes give users versatility and control for optimal performance in any situation. Users can express their creative vision--adjusting the f-stop for detailed portraits with softened backgrounds, or slowing the exposure speed to create the blurred effect of motion--or just sit back and let the camera do the work with the automatic settings.

Digital Image Stabilization Mode
The SP-320 features Digital Image Stabilization Mode for capturing crisp, clear pictures--free from the blur sometimes caused by camera shake or moving subjects--with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speed.

Selectable Shooting Modes
The SP-320 makes it easy to capture great images in a variety of lighting situations with 31 preprogrammed shooting modes, such as Night Scene, Indoor, Portrait, Beach, Snow, or Auction. And with its QuickTime Movie Mode, the camera can record VGA-quality movies of any length.

Accessory Lenses and Flashes for Expanded Capabilities
Olympus's SP-series cameras feature a threaded barrel, which enables easy attachment of add-on wide-angle or telephoto conversion lenses for even more creative control. Compatible accessory lenses include the WCON-07F wide-angle lens, which enables a wider field of view (26.6mm equivalent) for shooting skylines, landscapes, or group shots, and the TCON-17F telephoto conversion lens, which extends the camera's magnification capability by 1.7 times (196mm equivalent) for bringing subjects dramatically closer--great for shooting sports events, concerts, or wildlife. (Additional lenses not included--must be purchased separately.)

TruePic TURBO for High-Speed Response
Olympus's exclusive TruePic TURBO Image Processor enhances image quality and delivers faster overall processing speeds for rapid startup, shutter release and playback. TruePic TURBO enable the cameras to capture information with pixel "micro-smoothing" that delivers clearer and more color-accurate photos, even at lower resolutions. The fast startup of less than one second and nearly instant shutter release time ensure a high-speed response, so you'll always be ready to take great pictures.

PictBridge Enabled--No Computer Necessary!
The power of PictBridge technology allows photos to be printed directly from the camera to any PictBridge-enabled printer without using a computer. And the new one-touch printing button makes printing a single-step process. Printing and sharing images has never been easier!

In-Camera Editing
With in-camera editing features such as Red-Eye Fix, resizing, color, brightness and saturation adjustments, and frame and title addition, users can edit photos right in their camera. Simple image touch-ups are quick and easy without the hassle of a PC.

Style and Ergonomics
With the new SP-series cameras, Olympus returns to the traditional compact appearance of its range-finder cameras. At a compact size of just 3.9 by 2.6 by 1.4 inches (W x H x D) and weighing less than 7 ounces, the SP-320 tucks away easily into a pocket or backpack. And the ergonomic grip makes it easy to hold and steady the camera with one hand for fast and easy shooting.

Underwater Photography
The PT-030 underwater housing is created specially for the SP-series camera--so you can take your camera with you on your underwater excursions. The large 2.5-inch premium size LCD, compact body size, and three underwater scene modes make it the perfect camera to take along diving.

Easy USB Autoconnect
Connecting the camera to a computer is easy with the USB Autoconnect feature, which connects directly via USB 2.0 cable and requires no software.

Olympus Master Software
Olympus Master software provides the ultimate in digital imaging management. An intuitive user interface makes downloading to your computer quick and simple, and images are searchable by date or keyword in the Calendar View. And with one-click editing tools, such as red-eye removal, images can be touched up before printing or e-mailing. Online support, templates, firmware upgrades, and other user services are just a click away.

By F. Roberts on March 17, 2006
The Olympus SP-320 is a dream to use. I especially like the stabilization program since I don't have a tripod. The ultra large 2.5 inch LCD is easy on the eyes. Also, the gray color of the body doesn't stand out like the silver bodies on other digital cameras. Only drawbacks are that it only comes with a wrist strap, not a neck strap, and the manual is on CD, which you load on your computer. This is an inconvenience when you need to refer to the manual and your "manual" is at home on your computer. All and all, I would rate the SP-320 *****. Much better than my HP digital camera!

I love this camera. My fiancee and I have been arguing over what camera to buy, and this was the perfect one for both of us. I still do a lot of amateur B&W photography, and I like having control over my old 35mm Canon, so I wanted the same control in our digital camera. With this Olympus I can control everything (ISO, aperture, shutter, etc.). Granted, it's not the same as some of the digital SLR's on the market, but you still have a lot of control. My fiancee likes it because it has a very user friendly navigation and the automatic settings. Olympus has a nice Guide feature will explain most of the items within a menu (e.g., it tells you the differences between all the different shooting modes). Another thing I really like about this camera is that it has some "meat" to it. With every other camera I picked up in the store I felt like I was going to break it by just holding it. Call me old-fashioned, but some of the new cameras are just so tiny it's almost uncomfortable to shoot with. Don't take this to mean that this camera is a monster...it's not. It's still very compact and light, and it fits comfortably in my big hands. As for the automatic features, they're great (I even like using them). There are a lot of shooting modes to pick from. It has the standard Landscape, Sport, Night, Fireworks, etc. (the stuff you'll use) and a few you might not (I can't imagine using the Cuisine shooting mode, but it's there!). The image stabilization feature really works, too. I compared pictures with my old digital Nikon and the Olympus...wow. Of course, there's a difference of about 3 megapixels, but I can see a difference in how blurry the pictures are. The only hang-ups I have about this camera (which are pretty minor) are the size of the memory cards (they're about the size of a Listerine square, so I worry about losing them) and the optical zoom. The zoom works fine, I just wish it was more like 4x or 5x, but that more a money issue than anything.

Verified Purchase
I did a good amount of research before buying this camera. Some of the pluses include a large LCD screen, compact size, relatively easy to use. But, after using it for a few months, I am disappointed with a few things. First off, the delay when taking a picture is often terribly long... so you often lose your subject, especially when trying to photograph kids! Even in sport mode and burst mode this is an issue. Perhaps I have just not found the right setting, but the Canon I owned before this Olympus, was a cheaper camera, but when you pushed the button it took the picture with almost now delay. Another complaint is that is does not come with a battery pack.... you instead have to use AA (which seem to die in minutes) or rechargables that don't last much longer. It seems everytime I pick the camera up the batteries are dead or near dead. VERY ANNOYING. I am selling mine on Ebay.

My wife and I bought it because we dropped our old Olympus and they wanted $90 just to look at it. So instead we splurged and bought this for our trip next week. I've spent the last week putting it through it's paces and it seems like it is quite the camera. Very intuitive to use, makes excellent quality shots which show up on my mac just like they looked in the viewfinder. Last night I put it on the tripod and took some night shots and they turned out great. The light was beautiful. So far I'm very pleased. Now we'll see how it does in France!

--Update July 9 2006---

Just got back from France. We took approximately 725 pictures while we were there (and a couple in DC over the fourth) the camera performed wonderfully. We brought with us 6 rechargeable batteries though we only went through a pair in about a day in a half. We had a Rayovac 15 minute charger so we really only would have needed two batteries but oh well.

I was really pleased with the scene option. On this setting the camera gives you a bunch of preset settings (museum, fireworks, cuisine, scenery, indoors, etc) these are great. For example the behind glass setting turns off the flash and ups the depth of field so that worked great for shots from the train (except when a tree leapt into the picture). We took pictures of all our meals and the cuisine one takes great shots but it leaves the flash on auto so after being embarrassed in a fancy restaurant once we started turning that off too. But in general that scene setting was nice because it provides a bit more intelligence than auto but doesn't require fiddling with F stops and ISO's. Thought the camera will do all that if you want it to. Even the fireworks setting did a great job on a tripod at the Washington monument.

To sum up - this is a very powerful, portable (I kept it on my belt) easy to use camera. We are very satisfied with the purchase.

I'm no expert in digital photography (I'm still most comfortable using my old Nikon F2), but after doing a bit of research on lower-end digital cameras, I decided to take a chance on this one. Because it was released only in the spring of this year, there are virtually no professional reviews and only a handful (albeit very positive, like the ones here) of user reviews. However, this camera is simply unbeatable on paper - I'm amazed that there are so many features crammed in.

After picking up the camera on sale at Circuit City for $190, I can say that it's lived up to Olympus' claims thus far. I love that I can choose full manual control, full auto mode, or everything in between. Picture quality appears to be good although I can't give a verdict until I really put it through its paces. Battery life (I use high-capacity NiMHs) has been pretty decent.

My only real complaint is that although the LCD is large, resolution is only acceptable at best. Overall, I'm very happy with my purchase and would enthusiastically recommend this camera. Amazon doesn't offer the best deal on it, but does seem to have the best price on the 1GB xD card.
