Question about Olympus SP-550 UZ Digital Camera

1 Answer

Olympus Camera I have a Olympus SP- 550 and I want to know what type of lens should I use. I bought the adapter but not sure where to go from here and no one seems to know any help?

    Why do you want additional lenses? And why buy an adapter alone? [Maybe you're used to getting a SLR body and adding lenses individually.] Although you can get additional telephoto and maybe wider angle lenses for the SP -550 ultrazoom, I know I haven't had any real need or desire to use them. The 18x zoom is already greater telephoto capacity than the electronics can handle [color fringing on subject edges at much above 12-15x distorts image quality and the digital electronics can't correct for that]. I like my SP550 UZ for the most part, but more lenses probably wouldn't yield better photos [more likely worse]. I still have more of the learning curve for this model to get beyond before I can use it to maximum advantage--learning to use more lenses doesn't have any appeal inlight of what I can already do with the 550.

If you go to the olympusamerica.com/store you will see the telephoto lens but you will need the cla-10 adapter to use it with your camera
although you do get more telephoto with it... you can turn the digital zoom on in the camera and go to 90+ times zoom

Can you use a haze or UV filter on the Olympus SP-800UZ. what size would be used?


Yes it is possible with a lens adapter. Search for Kiwiphotos LA-67SP800 or LA-67SP800. Or look at: http://www.kiwifotos.com/Pro_show.asp?Proid=83
On Ebay they can be bought quite cheap. You can fit a filter onto the lens adapter.

What size uv filter do i need for an olympus sp-570uz camera ?


The SP-570UZ does not have a filter thread; therefore, lens filters cannot be attached directly to the camera.

Filters with 55mm diameter can be attached to the SP-570UZ via the CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter, sold separately. However, it is not recommended because vignetting may occur in the corners of the image when the camera is set to wide angle positions.

The CLA-10 Lens Tube Adapter (Item #202104) is available from authorized Olympus dealers and also online from The Olympus Store: http://emporium.olympus.com

Have zoom error on my olympus 550, powers off


Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

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

Hey I just bought the Olympus sp-550. My problem is that the memory card will not click in...


the trick to that is, you have to use a dime to push it in deep enough til you hear the small click.
The memory card will then be level with the camera.

Conversion of LCD


Unfortunately such conversion is not possible. If the "vari angle" screen is an essential your best approach would be to dispose of the SP 550 UZ and buy another camera meeting your need. Sorry!
