PhotoReview
1 August 2010
  • Summary: A compact, lightweight digicam with a 30x zoom lens plus 720p HD video recording.When it was unveiled in February, Olympus's SP-800UZ was one of only two digicams with a 30x zoom lens. Claiming the advantage of being the world's smallest in this category, the SP-800UZ boasts a 14-megapixel sensor and was released with a 'sister' model, the SP-600UZ which sports a 15x zoom lens and 12-megapixel resolution. Reviews of both models will appear on the Photo Review website. .
  • Pros: You're looking for a low-priced superzoom digicam that can record 720p HD video clips., You want plenty of scene pre-sets for shooting both video and still pictures., You'd like to take ultra-close-up photographs of small subjects. Don't buy this camera if :, You demand consistent high image quality for stills and video clips., You want A, S and M shooting modes., You want high burst capacity at high resolution., You require fast and accurate autofocusing.

Olympus SP-800UZ

Pocket Lint
15 July 2010
  • Conclusion: If you want a huge zoom in a relatively small and portable package, the class-leading focal range provided by the Olympus SP-800UZ is worth seeking out. However, we could have done with a few more dedicated buttons in order to find certain functions quicker, and unlike competitors there's no EVF to fall back on as an alternative to the admittedly clear LCD.
  • Pros: Huge focal range and large 2GB internal memory provide plentiful options from the outset
  • Cons: Optical zoom disabled when shooting video with audio, no EVF or optical viewfinder as alternative to the LCD for framing and review, menus are simplistic but finding more expansive settings is convoluted

Olympus SP-800UZ

10 June 2010
  • Summary: Olympus SP-800UZ - ультразум с кратностью 30х (диапазон 28-840 экв.мм). Матрица 14 Мп, широкоэкранный 16:9 монитор с диагональю 3" и разрешением 230000 точек, оптическая стабилизация на сдвиге матрицы, несколько режимов высокоскоростной серийной съемки, эффекты обработки снимков, видеосъемка HD 720p, встроенная память 1.8 ГБ и слот для карт памяти формата SD.
  • Pros: Мощнейший диапазон зума 30х., При такой кратности зума – относительно небольшие габариты и вес камеры (последнее, впрочем, не плюс при съемке в телеположениях зума)., Достаточно широкий угол (от 28 экв.мм), уникальное телеположение (840 экв.мм)., Эффективный оптический стабилизатор., Богатый выбор режимов автофокуса., Фильтры эффектной обработки снимков MAGIC (однако черно-белой съемки нет)., Три режима съемки панорам, из них два с автоматической склейкой., Экспобреке...
  • Cons: Монитор не поворотный., Нет электронного видоискателя (который в случае ультразума означает большую устойчивость аппарата в руках)., Нет возможности установить внешнюю вспышку., Отсутствие экспорежимов А-S-M (которые были в модели SP-590UZ)., Нет выбора ББ по образцу., Нет настройки параметров изображения – контраста, насыщенности, резкости., Нет поддержки формата RAW., Нет ручной фокусировки., Медленная серийная съемка при полном разрешении кадра (1 кадр/сек)., При в...

SP-800 UZ

Das Digitalkamera-Magazin
16 April 2010
  • Conclusion: Zwar erscheinen die Bezeichnungen manch einer Digitalkamera willkürlich, doch verbirgt sich dahinter meist eine spezielle Bedeutung. So steht SP bei Olympus für "Special Performance" und UZ für "Ultrazoom". Die Olympus SP-800 UZ kombiniert beide Begriffe nicht zum ersten Mal und setzte damit eine Tradition fort, die schon seit den Anfangstagen der digitalen Fotografie besteht.
  • Pros: 30fach optisches Zoom (derzeitiger Weltrekord bei einer Digitalkamera ohne Wechselobjektiv), Größte Tele Brennweite bei einer Digitalkamera ohne Objektivwechselmöglichkeit, Äußerst praxistaugliche kleinbildäquivalente Brennweite von 28mm bis 840mm, Sehr kompakte Größe für eine Bridgekamera mit hohem Brennweitenbereich, Optischer Bildstabilisator arbeitet gut (siehe die Testbericht-Seite Bildstabilisator), Kamera liegt relativ gut in der Hand (gummierter Haltegriff), I...
  • Cons: Schlechte Auflösungswerte am oberen Brennweitenende, Lange Einschaltzeit (ca. 3,29 Sekunden bis bereit, ca. 4,11 Sekunden bis zur ersten Aufnahme), Vergleichsweise lange Fokussierzeit, Keine A/S/M Aufnahmemodi vorhanden, Entweder optisches Zoom währen der Videoaufnahme oder Tonaufzeichnung (beides geht nicht), Kein RAW-Format vorhanden, Das Display wird beim Fotografieren nicht komplett verwendet (rechts/links schwarze Ränder), Unterdurchschnittliche Bildqualität bei ...
