I found the youtube feature on the video settings. It offers different video quality settings and some optimized ofr youtube. ALso, the burst feature is amazin, yesterday I tok a burst of 35 photos in the space of 5 seconds! Amazing.....
First off, I own several "digital" cameras and have also previously had a few long zoom cameras.I don't like "big" cameras because I don't like lugging them around. So when I have owned long zoom cameras in the past, though I have liked them, tended to not use them much because I didn't like carrying them around, thus always ended up selling them.
I have been keeping an eye out for a small point and shoot with a 20+ optical zoom and stumbled upon this one by chance on the Olympus web-site.
I was impressed by what I saw, read a few reviews and ordered it off amazon.com (of course!) and received it the very next day. Right out of the box, the quality of the build stood out, it was also well laid out and I was delighted to find the battery was almost fully charged.
I headed over to a nearby park and snapped off some photos and a few video clips.
The quality of the photos and video were excellent, I used some of the "magic" settings which are special effects, I usually dismiss these types of effects as gimmicks but found some of them to be impressive.
The photos have really nice colors and look very life-like (which is what a camera should be capable of!)
The zoom is quiet and smooth
Zoom works with HD and sound (the SP800UZ did not and went straight back!)
You can take photos while shooting HD video (though not sure yet where it saves them)
It can shoot HD video and say, 480 x 640 video (great for youtube etc or emailing) at the same time which is very impressive.Read more ›
You can operate the zoom while shooting video. Not all cameras do this.
You can take full res snap shots while recording video. Again, the Multi-Recording is why I bought this.
You can shoot multi sized photos or videos simultaneously. This is great for a having a lower res copy ready for upload instantly.
The zoom is 24x optical and it fits in my pocket. The speed of the glass is very good considering the focal range of this unit.
You can capture about 29 minutes continuos video at full 1080 (4GB limit on file size for SD cards)
I was concerned about not having a view finder, but so far I can see the display well enough in daylight.
The noise of the zoom and auto-focus motor is picked up when recording video, not very noticeable when there are other sounds being recorded, but very noticeable when there's relative silence.(my old canon camera produced a constant high pitch whine throughout all videos. This is only when zooming and focus and less noticable.(Again, this is not a true replcement for a dedicated camcorder.)
There seems to be a 2 snapshot limit of still pics while recording video. I'm not certain if that is a setting I can change or what the deal is.Read more ›
