The SP-570 UZ's operation can get pretty complex, but Olympus also puts the automatic, semiautomatic, and handholding modes right on the mode dial. One of the best is the Shooting Guide, which provides step-by-step instructions for common shooting tasks. For example, in Guide mode, pressing menu brings up a set of tasks like Shoot with effects preview, brightening subject, shooting into backlight, and so on. If you select, say, Shooting into backlight, it offers three different ways to compensate: Set to fill-in flash, set the metering to spot, or increase the exposure compensation. Selecting any one of those makes the change for you.
I also like that Olympus puts your custom settings (MyMode) right on the dial, and that it incorporates a thumbweel in addition to the the typical four-button navigation controls you usually find on this class of camera.
