    The SP-570 has many good features. I have noticed only 3 cons worthy of note :
    1. The LCD is fixed, whereas the S5 swivels.
    2. You are limited to 1/2 sec exposure unless you go to M (Manual) where you get 15 sec. If you set B (Bulb) you must hold down the shutter – which gives you up to 8 minutes, but any movement causes image blur (on tripod, any hand/finger movement in the 8 minutes gets recorded).
    3. The memory card is non-standard.
    These are the only detracting features.
