Olympus 820-Super quality, great pictures, lightweight and awesome screen.

maryjanebly, Ebay

  • Summary: Replaced my Olympus stylus 410 with this cool little 820. All of my cameras have been Olympus and the 410 finally had an issue with the telescopic lens opening. I got this camera for $26 plus $5 in shipping, which was a great deal! This camera is super quiet, fits in the palm of your hand and is lightweight. I use a 2 gig xd chip and can basically unlimited photos. The zoom is very nice and pics come out great for my ebay auctions.

  • Summary: After using this camera for 3 years as a pocket-able alternative to my digital SLR I'm ready to report on my opinion after replacing it with another brand. On the plus side, the camera is small, the design is good, USB transfer is fast and I like the auto-sensing of the usb connection to the computer, avoiding the needless screen illumination and corresponding battery use during transfer. The battery has been dependable over many cycles and thousands of images.

Very Positive Review

  • Summary: I was looking for a camera for a long time and I didn't the most up to date model. I was told exactly what the camera included and they seller even messaged me to explain a problem. I was very impressed with the seller's honesty. However, the seller did forget to mention one problem on the camera that it sometimes shuts off in the middle of taking pictures. I don't know why this information was left out.

camera came bare-bones, no charger no xd picture card.

  • Summary: The camera was difficult to figure at first, then I purchased a manual. it explained what I needed and what to do to setup the camera for efficient operation. Am still unable to download pictures I've taken due to not having the pc cord. I recommend waiting for a full bundle deal..because I am hampered in completing my tasks without the proper and necessary accessories that DO COME WITH most deals.

  • Summary: WE bought this as a gift for my wife's son ! He was totally delighted ! Called us the day after Christmas to let us know what an awsome camera it was ! HE stayed up until 1:30 am the 26th just learning and using the camera ! My wife and I have both have olympus {fe series} cameras. Olympus to us builds a very high quality camera. I personally have taken thousands of pics and if there is a bad one it was me not the camera !

If there were a -0 star I would use it

  • Summary: Ugh..This camera SUCKS. You cannot take a good photo with this camera AT ALL. Well, you can but it has to be outside in perfect light in macro mode. That's it. If you enjoy close up outdoor photos of a ladybug on a leaf, this is your camera. I can't tell you how many perfect shots I have missed using this camera. Every single shot comes out grainy, dark, unfocused and looks like you took the picture underwater.

NOT impressed - falls way short of my expecations

  • Summary: My husband got me this for Christmas last year. Unlike my husband, I'm NOT a photography buff, but I wanted a small easy to use point-and-shoot camera! This camera was bought based on our experience with Olympus, particularly our daughter's Stylus 760! I liked the 760, and thought it would have been more than adequate for my needs; husband decided to "upgrade" to the Stylus 820!

The Olympus 820 is crap - do not buy this piece of junk

Frank S. Urban "Slim", Amazon
24 August 2008
  • Summary: For 20 years I've been a user of the Olympus Stylus cameras first film and then a Stylus 410 (took on the appalachin Trail for 2100 miles). They were great! However beware!! This 820 is trash. Very, very poor quality pictures, even during the day. This company needs to repay folks for their purchase. They should not get away with putting out a product like this. There are too many folks that have the same poor quality that I have.
