A Great High Zoom Camera for a very Affordable Price

Summary: This is the fourth Olympus UZ that I have had and I still have three of them.Without doubt they are the best I have ever had. The high zoom is just what I need.. It is perhaps slower than the very expensive brands, but since I specialize in flower and insect photography or scenic subjects. I got a high-speed memory card and it is quite as fast as I ever need. I do wish it had the lithium battery as the last model had, but that's a minor point.
Summary: I recently purchased the Olympus SP-820-UZ digital camera here as I needed a decently priced high-powered zoom "point & shoot" digital camera to replace a troublesome Nikon P-500 digital camera I recently had and it died on me and was plagued with a lot of problems. Anyways, I needed a lower-priced, decent and easy to use "point & shoot" digital camera with decent zoom, equal or near equal to my prior Nikon P-500 digital camera.
Summary: This is my seventh Olympus camera. While it took the supplier an inordinate amount of time to ship it, the camera itself is very nice. I've been playing with the settings to figure out what works best for me. So far so good. As a professional photographer with a few photos published on the New York Times Best Seller list, cameras are not a stranger to me. I back pedaled from an Olympus DSLR camera which broke to this one.
