Olympus SP-800UZ Review

Digital Camera Review
7 September 2010
  • Summary: As you can probably tell from the tone of the review, I was not terribly pleased with the Olympus SP-800UZ. While its long 30x optical zoom lens gives the camera great versatility, the big zoom lens comes with a price. At longer focal lengths, it is hard to get a sharp picture and colors tend to fade. I also noticed problems with the auto focus in dim light, chromatic aberration and overexposure. Slow shot-to-shot times are also an issue.
  • Pros: Good build quality, Versatile extra-long lens, Accurate color, Good auto white balance, Excellent flash
  • Cons: Blurry images at long focal lengths, Slow shot-to-shot time, Auto focus problems in dim light, No viewfinder or manual control over shutter speed and aperture

Olympus SP-800UZ Review

Digital Photography School
29 July 2010
  • Excerpt: Now that cameras such as this are nearly commonplace, the decision whether to buy a digicam that shoots HD movies as well as pretty big stills or a camcorder that shoots HD video and stills is a tricky one. Pricewise, it’s also a close race. Now we have the Olympus SP-800UZ with an enormous 30x optical zoom that equates to a 35 SLR range of 28-840mm and, note, the tele end enjoys an f5.6 aperture.

Expert Review

  • Excerpt: Olympus has led the charge for all-in-one cameras with gargantuan zooms. This latest 30x optical model in black or titanium silver offers the furthest reach yet, at a 35mm equivalent 28-840mm. The Olympus SP-800UZ's maximum stills resolution is also generous; at 14Mp. It's got a reasonable price and, despite the class-leading spec, it's a pretty small camera.
