Summary: This camera is a different bird , it has limited aperture and sutter settings but the ones that come Auto do the job I think . I just got it but I put through alot of test , It's a qaulity product and some settings get me the very truest color reproduction that I've ever seem .
Summary: I got this camera as a replacement for my Canon dSLR that broke. It's a lot smaller than i expected, which was actually a nice surprise. It's also a lot cooler looking than in the pictures, very shiny and has a good weight to it, not cheap plastic.
Summary: I really love the zoom on this camera. The other features are nice and pretty easy to use. Overall, nice camera for the money. The only things I've had issues with are night shots - VERY difficult to get a good shot, It's also hard to catch a quick shot because of it's size and it also takes a while...
Definate improvement over my previous Olympus Ultrazooms

Summary: I have previously owned two other ultra zoom Olympus cameras (C-770UZ and SP-570UZ) and after reading some lukewarm reviews about the image quality of the SP-800UZ I was a bit hesitant to buy one, but after one day of owning it I feel pleased overall.
Summary: This is a superb camera at a superb price. I have only been amazed by the quality and versatility of the camera. The menu's are easy to navigate and offer a wide variety of functionality for even the most amateur of photographers.
Summary: This camera takes amazingly clear pictures! Esspecially outside. The HD video is spectacular, however, you do need the proper video card setup on your computer to view them once you upload and save them.
Pros: cheap for the technical specs. Lotsa zoom, good pictures. My brother likes it.
Cons: Nothing worng with the camera, everything works, good pictures, but I have a 3yr old panasonic that feels like a more expensive camera, although i paid 300 for it as well. All the buttons click smoother, looks more professional and sophisticated. Zoom is noisier than the panasonic too
Summary: What I was looking for: -- More advanced than a point-and-shoot, but not as complex as a DSLR -- Well-made -- Decent, basic video capability -- Comfortable to hold and manipulate -- High level zoom -- Price: Under $300 What's Great About It: -- 2MB of internal memory in addition to a card slot.
Excerpt: Estoy sorprendido con las capacidades y flexibilidad de esta cámara, sin tener que caer en las complicaciones de una cámara reflex y con una calidad muy parecida. Finalmente si tus fotos las vas a ver en la pantalla de una computadora o cuando mucho en una pantalla LCD es mas que suficiente
Summary: I have been an Olympus owner for many years, that is what lead me to upgrade my old Olympus with the Olympus SP-800UZ. When I took it out of the box, I was amazed at how professional the camera looks.
