I've owned many Fuji digital cameras over the years, this is my first Olympus camera ever. What sold me was the 15X optical zoom and the price. The Fuji 30X zoom camera Fujifilm FinePix HS10 10 MP CMOS Digital Camera with 30x Wide Angle Optical Zoom and 3-Inch LCD costs too much. After seeing first-hand what good quality pictures I can get from this Olympus, I'll seriously look at this brand for future camera purchases.

PROS:

>>> 1 GB of INTERNAL memory - some of it is used by the on-board manual - you can get by without buying an SD card. With internal memory and the camera set at 12 MP resolution, you can take 112 pictures or 14 minutes of video without adding an SD card. The manual is INSIDE the camera - so you can access it anytime you need help - even if you are out in the boonies with no PC. Get out your reading glasses, the print is small.

>>> Quality-build - this camera just "feels good" in your hand, not one of those flimsy little ultra-compact cameras that are so popular now. Easy enough to grip with your right hand. Heavy enough that it requires a neck strap, not a hand strap to carry it.

>>> Magic Filter Settings: Fun way to play with your pictures. You can also create art with these - settings are: pop art, pinhole, fish eye and drawing. Take a picture of your child and print it out in the "drawing" setting; your child can color it in with his/her crayons.

CONS: (my cons aren't all bad, it all depends on what YOU are looking for in a camera)

>>> No optical viewfinder. Not a big deal to me, but might be to you. Your only viewfinder with this camera is the LCD screen.

Features and Video Quality only got 4 stars because I don't have enough experience in these areas to give a more definitive answer. Value for Price also got only 4 stars. Olympus cameras tend to be on the higher side, though not at the top, and now there are other comparable cameras on the market. I paid over $300, and I think under $300 is a better price point.

Last fall, we purchased another digital camera, one with a 24X zoom. As it is somewhat bulky, I have tended to carry my old workhorse, a 5MP Kodak with a 10X zoom, when away from home. My husband has ended up as the primary user of the new camera. While I had been thinking of upgrading the 5MP camera, it was low on the list of "Things To Buy."

Two things influenced me in purchasing the Olympus SP-600 UZ. One was that one of the shopping channels offered it on installment payments, making it seem less of a luxury item. Not only did it have a higher megapixel count, but it also had a bigger zoom--until quite recently, hard to come by at a reasonable price, though now there are several models to choose from. The second factor was the Olympus brand. We also have an Olympus Stylus which is impact-resistant, waterproof, and will operate at low temperatures. Because of the small zoom on this camera, we generally use it only when on the water, but I do like the color saturation of the photos.

Of course I read the reviews on Amazon and elsewhere before deciding to go ahead with the Olympus SP-600UZ. Reviewers discussed the lack of a printed manual, so I had downloaded it from the Olympus website even before my camera arrived.

Per the instructions, I loaded the drivers and the accompanying IB software. I then hooked up the camera to my computer to set it up.

I bought this as a successor to my Olympus C2040Z as I've had (and continue to have) great results with thats 11 year old camera which I've used to take well over 23,000 pics over the years. Let's get down to the nitty gritty - image quality and performance: very disappointing.

Indoor performance was a roll of the dice on any setting including auto, setting it for incandescent or fluorescent lighting, whatever seemed appropriate. I would say less than 4 out of 10 pictures taken were acceptable, even after using Photoshop to fix them. Taking the exact same shots at the same time with my 11 year old Olympus, all were fine. I took both cameras to a wedding and clicked off 211 pics with the SP600 and a friend, using my old C2040Z, clicked off roughly 100. Indoor lighting for the ceremony and reception had typical banquet hall lighting conditions and styles...not great, but something surely this technological wonder should be able to handle. Guess again. Even after spending a good deal of time in Photoshop trying to fix things, I was able to keep 17 out of 211 pics from the SP600. Same shots taken with my old Olympus....out of 100 pics, only 3 were unusable. Thinking this can't be right, I returned the SP600 and exchanged it for another, new in the sealed box. Same indoor results....very poor....from inability to focus properly to graininess to white balance being very off....you name it, it failed at it.

Outdoors,up to approximately 10x zoom it works alright...but I expected much better. Beyond that, the graininess spikes and image quality takes a nose dive and it's next to useless, especially if the lighting isn't perfect. Pics that were taken closer, up to approximately 5x optical zoom were what I expected out of this camera for quality.
