NICE CAMERA - WITH SOME "IF ONLYS"

Amazon Customer, Amazon
15 March 2012
  • Summary: I kid you not when I say I had six $300 - $400 cameras in a 2 week period, and sent them all back except this one!! I've had several brands, several zoom-capabilities, several different kinds of features, etc.

OLympus fixed lens zoom point and shoot

Charles W. Riendeau "Deaubooks", Amazon
5 January 2012
  • Summary: This Olympus point and shoot looks good and handles well. It has a multitude of options with which I am still becoming familiar. The picture quality in comparison with a Lumix is superior with roughly the same pixels.

Good camera....

  • Summary: Having used this camera for several days, I can basically say that this camera falls right between your basic point and shoot and ultrazoom. I will try to write this review so it won't terribly overlapped some of the other well written reviews.

Short Shooting Span

Ew Brown "the teksta", Amazon
8 September 2010
  • Summary: Upon receipt of this new Olympus (point & shoot) SP800 UZ camera, I was thrilled at the potential that it posed offering 14 mega pixels and a 30x zoom. I own several Olympus digital cameras, the last of which was the SP510 UZ with a 7.1 mega pixels and a 10x optical zoom and each time I am...

  • Summary: Pro: Good price for the camera. The picture quality is very good. Recovery is quick. Functions and options are plentiful. Tech support was helpful. Con: The image stabilization doesn't seem very effective. Camera set up was a nightmare since I run a Mac.

Slow, poor low light performance

Sergey Kiselev "skiselev", Amazon
30 August 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera at Costco as an upgrade for my point and shoot camera (Fujifilm F72Exr), with main goal to take pictures of my kids, and do some nature photography. I tried it many times in different conditions, and was not satisfied by its performance. I returned it after two weeks or so.

Low buck - high tech

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: Relatively inexpensive for a 30X optical point & shoot digital camera. For the novice like me, this camera brings my pictures into the next decade with lots of potential. Very surprised at the functionality of this camera. At the 8 megapixel setting, it seems to work best for my needs.

Didn't meet expectations

Walmart
20 June 2010
  • Summary: I bought this camera thinking it would be awesome... not so much! My old camera with only 7MP takes WAY better pics. I played with the settings several times and no luck. I looked up consumer reports and the Panasonic Lumix and Cannon got the best reviews.

Olympus SP 800 UZ review

G. Alldredge, Amazon
4 June 2010
  • Summary: I'm an Olympus fan with an E-620 as my top DSLR. I really liked the SP 550 UZ when it was fairly new. I then bought an SP 565 UZ and then an SP 590 UZ. The Olympus SP 800 UZ is one of those new 'mirror-less' point-and-shoots that tries to make up for no viewfinder by having a bright, well designed...
