If the Camera is capable of Multishots then the manual will tell you how. Taking pictures of fast moving object depends on what sort of result you require. If you wish to 'stop' the object with a blurred background then with the camera of P setting simply pan [swing] with the object as it moves and press the shutter when in centre- So with lets say a fast car come from right moving to left[the the other way] point far right ans move with the car as it comes to your centre click but keep moving your swing. But there is no substitute for practice and experiment

Camera (Olympus SP500-uz) turns on, but shutter button and zoom lever don't work

Make sure you have the switch turned to "take picture (camera)" instead of "reveiw photos (green triagle)". On this one, i think it is a wheel on the top of the camera.

Only thing I can think of...

Battery drainage

20 to 30 shots on "fresh" batteries! Do you use the flash on all shots. That really drains them. I would try to set the camera to "factory default settings" in case you changed something that is causing a drain. I hope you just bought some bad batteries.

The best thing I EVER bought for my Olympus was the Re-chargeable Lithium Ion batteries. The worst thing I did was buy an off brand. That was a waste. I ended up getting the more expensive brand Olympus recommended and all was GREAT again!! 1,000's of pictures later and they still work great.
Good Luck

I have an SP500-UZ. In the mode where you can take five shots in a row, it takes three and the shutter drags on the fourth and then it takes an unusually long time to be able to take another photo. ...

The speed with which your camera can process multiple pictures in sequence is affected by the quality (SHQ,SQ,HQ) setting you select. Try reducing the setting to the next lower one and you should find the problem goes away. Good luck.

Grainy pictures on my Olympus sp510uz digitial camera

Unfortunately the response you received from Olympus is correct. The Image stabilisation system used in your camera does not use the best approach to overcoming camera shake - rather than a more expensive sensor based system it downgrades the picture quality and in dark (relatively) situations the result is grain in the picture. See bottom of Page 25 in the Advanced Manual (found on the CD which came with your camera). A similar problem occurs if you turn on and use the Digital Zoom available in the camera. Unless absolutely vital for a particular shot turn both off.
Try it and see the benefit.
