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).
perfect for sharing pictures on the fly.
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!
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.
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.

To have aperture and shutter priority as well as full manual operation is a major plus that I appreciate - and this camera has them. Yet for the person who needs fully automatic operation, it also has a host of presets for various conditions, including one for image stabilization. Controls work well, focus is quick and accurate, and most important of all - results are excellent time and time again. This is one camera where when I delete a shot, it's due to my fault and not bercause of the cameras inability to do it's job. Great macro capability with 2 modes that leave flash in automatic or off without also pressing the flash button.
The overall shape and feel is great, and this model still retains an optical viewfinder, which allows for battery conservation. Plus it has a power saver mode which remembers your settings. I use the lithium CRV3 batteries and am amazed at how long a battery lasts - longer than a charged set of rechargeables.
As for shortcomings, I can think of some that may or may not be annoying. The xD memory cards cost a bit more than SD cards that most other cameras use, but seem to be coming down. Lastly, the image stabilization is only available as a preset scene mode and can not be turned on as an option manually. Minor 3rd issue is that the battery door is blocked when using a tripod. Barrel distorton is noticeable depending on lens position, which has been a common Olympus issue I've seen before.
Yet overall, I am very pleased with this camera for everyday use. It stikes a nice compromise between simple point/shoot and a digital SLR. In fact this makes a great compliment to a DSLR as a second camera when you don't want the bulk, yet want manual operation and even RAW format.
**UPDATE** After several months, I am still very pleased with this camera. This is one of the very few cameras that I have been pleased with so long - the only one in this price range. I am still amazed at the battery life. Just replaced it last night, and can't remember when I put the weak one in. WOW!
