Summary: Probably me & not the camera; I do not adjust to change real well & this camera has a lot for me to change.. Wish there was a class I could take to learn all about the features of this camera...
Summary: This camera was bought as a gift for me last october, it was easy to use and i have taken some great pics on it, however..... to begin with my camera wouldnt focus properly but it was only on very rare occasions do i dissmissed it as maybe i had accidently pressed the zoom button without realising...
Summary: I bought this because I wanted the Zoom feature. I didn't like the other zoom cameras because they were so bulky and you have the lens cap to deal with. You really need to use the extreme zooms with a tripod though - the slightest movement makes it blurry.
Summary: Got this camera for a fair price and now I wish I wouldn't have gotten it at all. First; Getting sharp photos seems to be a hap-hazzard effort with this camera, if you don't give this camera plenty of time to focus you will not get good photos.
Summary: I purchased this specifically for concerts where I can't bring my Canon DSLR into. For the price and specs I thought it would perform much better. Making adjustments to iso and exposure which are the only adjustments you can make since there is not a manual mode.
Summary: This is a beautiful little camera that is capable of doing a lot, that is, if you can run it. It states 18x zoom, but it was in actuality much less than that except for when in digital zoom. This camera is small and because that is hard to hold still and get non-blurry pictures.
Summary: I can't beleive this camera does not allow you to zoom in while in Movie mode. This is definitely a minus for this camera. The picture quality is good however the image stabilization is also very bad.
Summary: Clarification: I DON'T like the 810! Loved my SP550 which led to get another Olympus. But this 810 - is frustrating. The auto focus is wacked. I have tried everything!!!! Wishing I had fixed my 550 :( A few years ago I purchased the Olympus SP550UZ for myself.
Summary: Will be returning/exchanging. Pictures looked good (especially with the nice LCD) but the image stabilization was hit or miss when using the zoom. The Magic Filters worked well but, in the end, I didn't see myself using them much in the future.
Summary: I bought this camera around two months ago, in anticipation of the birth of our baby. Good spec, good reviews, and within budget. I know this is contrary to most other reviews this camera has received, but all in all we are actually really quite disappointed.
