camera is everything we wanted and more!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Olympus SP-820UZ iHS Digital Camera (Black) (Old Model) (Electronics)
My wife and I were looking for a camera for Christmas and really wanted a Cannon SLR because of how quickly they took pictures and the view finder. However my wife told me she use to own an olympus and how great it was... it sure does live up to its name. The pictures take very quickly to where you don't have to wait forever long for it to load up. Zoom is great of course ( that is a given) but I'd say this camera takes pictures about as fast as the Cannon SLR's we were looking at in the stores and for a cheaper price. Trust me you wont regret this purchase. Also takes pictures very steadily even if your hand isn't steady! We love this product!!

I was just wondering if you still like the camera. How are the low-light indoor pictures? Is there a viewfinder? I had the Canon SX40 that I returned several months back and did not replace it yet. Now I am looking again. Anything you could add? I realize you have not had it long, but just wondering?

Yes I still love this camera. It takes time to sit down and get use to the settings but it does amazing with low-light indoor pictures. It also does great with low light outdoor as well. I would recommend a tripod with low light outdoors as it can become blurry, but it allows so much light in without needing a flash most of the time. It doesn't have a view finder which is one thing I wish it did have. We just took it to yellowstone last week and took some amazing wildlife pictures. It zooms in really close and is well worth the money.
