Inside its slim, elegant body, the SP-800UZ hides something amazing: a 30x wide-angle optical zoom. Bringing you all the power of a 30x zoom in a camera that’s small enough to go wherever your travels take you. And with advanced features like Creative Art Filters, you can truly express yourself.
30x Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (F2.8-F5.6, 28-840mm Equivalent) The longest, most powerful zoom in the world is also incredibly compact and portable. It zooms in 30x for extreme close-ups, then all the way back out for wide-angle panoramas.
HD Movie 720p A simple, one-touch button allows you to record movies with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera.
Dual Image Stabilization The 2-in-1 anti-blur solution. Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization, which keeps your shot steady by compensating for camera shake, combines with Digital Image Stabilization to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.
AF Tracking Automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects like kids and pets. Continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can easily capture a great shot of your subject in motion.
Creative Art Filters Give your photos a distinct look and artistic feel by applying one of four different Magic Filter effects, including Pop Art, Pinhole, Fisheye and Drawing.

It seems each year, camera companies try to outdo one another with the biggest zoom for the buck. Several weeks ago, I bought this camera with a mind-numbing 840mm zoom. Don't be surprised if the 1000 mm zoom comes out next year. Surprisingly, for a camera with this kind of capability, it is light as a feather and differtentiates itself from the other ultrazooms out there by eliminating the Electronic View Finder completely in favor of a 3" screen monitor (I suspect this omission may cost them sales). The instruction manual can be downloaded from the Olympus web site. The camera's software can be downloaded by connecting the camera to your computer (make sure your memory card has been removed to download software)
What also differentiates it from the others out there is that you can edit the still pictures you have taken using the special effects function from reducing red eye, shadow adjustment, adding/reducting color saturation, and cropping. Some of these functions were available in my Samsung S630, but in none of the more expensive Lumix models. With most digitals, if you want to edit your pictures, you would have to download them to your computer and use the camera's editing software or Photoshop.
By using Panorama function you can take up to 3 shots manually or automatically and the camera's computer "stitches" them together into one panoramic wide angle shot. quite a technological achievement.Read more ›
A 4 gb chip is more than you need and gives you enough room for photos and videos. Anything more than this chip is overkill and who wants to store that many photos on a chip without D/L to a storage area?
The only drawback I see on this camera is the setup where you really need to read the instructions so that you don't end up erasing the memory of the camera instructions before you insert the chip. Our camera did not come with the instruction booklet so I had to go to the website to D/L it and then go step by step from the instructions to set it up.Read more ›
The quality of the photos to my (amateur) eyes are very good even in relatively low light, the zoom is excellent (for photography) and the proprietary battery seems to last for ever. Actually, I have been using it right out of the box without ever charging and it is still going strong!
The setting are easy to access, and a breeze to adjust or just leave it in I/auto as I did for great results.
I am quite disappointed with the video capabilities (or LACK of them!) with no optical zoom available for HD video recording unless you switch off the sound! Birthday parties and sports events will never be the same without sound and it beats me why Olympus would come out with such a stunning camera and leave out such an important feature!
I also tried shooting video in VGA mode but still no optical zoom. The camera does allow you to use the digital zoom but it turns decent quality video into a horrible blur! (I could have lived with the digital zoom for my purposes if it had worked better)
Also worth a mention is the auto focus on video recording which is very slow, too slow for me.
Really excellent quality build, this camera will last for years!!! (if you don't end up returning it)
Excellent 30x optical zoom capability
Great looking design, compact and light
Long battery life, I still have not charge the battery yet and have taken 100 photos and 20 minutes of video.Read more ›
