Summary: Received this camera as a gift and have had trouble with it from day one. It has a lot of nifty settings, but if you just want a simple point and shoot camera and don't want the hassle of figuring out how to operate it, pass on the Olympus SP 800uz.
Summary: I read the many reviews here on Amazon, and having found a great price, I bought one. Wish I had saved my money. Yes, it does have a long range zoom, but for me, the camera is hard to hold and shakes.
Summary: I was happy to see a camera with 30x zoom, but I could not accept the image quality. Amazon was very generous with their return policy, and I'm now a very happy owner of a Canon EOS 60D. I suggest you to compare camera sample images at [...] before choosing a camera.
Summary: I have purchased several cameras over the past year, and this is by far the worse camera I have ever bought. It may have 30x Wide Optical Zoom, but what good is that when it takes so long for it to focus and the pic caputred (after it take so long to focus) comes out blurry.
Not the best camera in it's field. Customer support not good.

Summary: There are no manual modes for either exposure or focus. Sometimes you can trick the camera into the right exposure by selecting one of the various program options or scene modes, but there is no way to convince it to focus properly when it chooses not to. I have a bird feeder on my front porch.
Summary: I have this camera over one year. Why I bought especially this one? Zoom, 30x zoom for me was amazing, but is impossible to make photo because auto focus only no manual focus. Rubbish for me I rate one star only.
Summary: This camera is awful I purchased the Olympus SP 800UZ as a replacement for my Olympus SP-590UZ 26x Zoom camera after I accidentally scratched the lens. I thought this camera would be a upgrade due to the increased 30x zoom, I couldn't have been more wrong this camera is nothing compared to the...
Summary: Ich besitze bereits das Vor - Vorgängermodell "SP 560 UZ" und wollte mich eigentlich mit er neuen 800 UZ aktualisieren und verbessern. Leider ging mein Vorhaben klar nach hinten los :-( Die SP 800 macht bessere Video Aufnahmen und kann weiter zoomen als die ältere SP 560.
