GREAT EXPECTATIONS... but disappointed

janeo, Amazon

  • Summary: I have owned a previous OLYMPUS camera (model 570UZ) for several years and have been very pleased with the function and photos derived from this camera, therefore I was excited about the prospect of owning this "updated" OLYMPUS 820UZ, so much in fact that I saved up for several months to secure...

Excellent zoom, but problematic

Alejandro Corrales, Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this right after Christmas 2012 & returned it right after Christmas 2013 a year later. Why did I wait so long? I don't know... The zoom is fantastic & the fact that it uses 4 AA batteries is definitely a plus, but that's about it.

UPDATE: No Polaroid filter options, must refocus often by pressing "shoot" button, needs lots of light, low depth of field

  • Summary: If you shoot indoors this camera needs lots of light. Pictures come out dark in indoor environments and with comparatively short focal depths no matter what light conditions you are in.

MR JAMES A JENNINGS, Amazon

  • Summary: Battery life is awful. Sometimes can be good but nor more than 150 pics and even less if it's hot or you use the zoom. The batteries still say they have a lot of power left but are unable to continue to powrr the camera.

Problems focusing with zoom

Helmuts Rudzitis, Amazon
2 December 2013
  • Summary: FOCUS LAGS: For the price it was a cool gadget! But, but.. Problems focusing with zoom - even when not at full 40x, it already looses the object (i love planespotting, so imagine my frustration when you see a nice white plane with trail in blue skies, but this camera chokes on it and can't focus).

Good camera!

Rafael Vareto, Amazon
13 April 2013
  • Summary: I did like this purchase, but the set of batteries in the kit is rubbish. Its power last less than 15 minutes and sometimes it shuts the camera down. Good camera, nice camera case, but low quality batteries and charger (It's definitely not the ones in the picture)

  • Summary: Сравнил снимки с него и с камеры купленной в 2005 году (Самсунг Digimax U-CA 5, 5 мегапикселей). На Самсунге качество раза в 2 выше (при одинаковых условиях, настройках и месте съёмки), ради эксперимента сделал снимки сотовым (2 мегапикселя), у сотового чуть хуже. Брать не советую.
  • Pros: Удобно держать в руке
  • Cons: Плохое качество фотографий.
