Focus problems either taking pictures or while filming HD videos!

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 clear blue skies, but this camera chokes on it and can't...
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...
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.

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).
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)
Never buy a camera without a viewfinder - I did and I so regret it

Summary: The lens and image quality are excellent but there are major flaws in the design which spoil the camera. The lack of viewfinder makes taking snaps in poor light very difficult, just point and hope though most of the results do turn out OK. To use the zoom effectively you really do need a viewfinder.
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.
Schlechte Bildqualität, Programme fehlen, keine Akkus, frisst Batterien

Summary: Ich hatte jahrelang ein Vorgängermodell und war damit höchst zufrieden. Leider fehlt bei diesem Modell plötzlich das Programm, das von alleine x Fotos alle y Minuten machen kann. Die Kamera kann ich nicht mit den Akkus betreiben, die ich für das Vorgängermodell in Verwendung hatte.
Summary: verbraucht viel batterie, hält keinen tag trotz teurer batterien. aber das menü ist ansich toll, deswegen habe ich mich zunächst dafür entschieden. jetzt haben wir ne panasonic lumix dmc 272 dies ging aber einwadtfrei.
