In this review, we will be comparing SP-570 UZ and SP-560 UZ, two Small Sensor Superzoom cameras by Olympus. Olympus SP-570 UZ was introduced to market in January 2008 and Olympus SP-560 UZ was launched in December 2007. There is 23 months difference between SP-570 UZ and SP-560 UZ so we don't expect to see a huge technology difference between these two cameras but it would still give an advantage to younger SP-570 UZ, especially in sensor tech.
Both cameras have 1/2.3" sensors but Olympus SP-570 UZ has a 10.0 MP and Olympus SP-560 UZ has a 8.0 MP resolution. We can expect this to be a close match up because both models are ranked amongst the best in Small Sensor Superzoom cameras. Out of 244 cameras in this class, Olympus SP-570 UZ is ranked #0
with an overall score of 50 and Olympus SP-560 UZ is ranked #0
