Olympus SP-600UZ review

 

As with many things in life, expectations play a big part in whether you'll like the Olympus SP-600UZ. The two main attractions are its wide-angle lens with 15x zoom and its price; it can easily be found for less than $200. The rest of its features,...

Nice features, design for its price; 1GB of built-in storage; one-touch movie recording.

Soft, noisy photos above ISO 200; long shutter lag; ineffective image stabilization.

The Olympus SP-600UZ is easy on your wallet for a megazoom, but its photos and performance require a lot of compromise.

Olympus SP600 UZ

 

A budget-priced long-zoom digicam for everyday snapshooters who want to record 720p HD video clips.The 12-megapixel SP-600 UZ is the lower-priced model of two super-zoom digicams announced by Olympus in February. Built and priced to attract bargain...

As in the SP-800 UZ, the maximum resolution for video clips is 1280 x 720 pixels and scanning is progressive. The widely-used MPEG-4 compression and AVC/H.264 codec are the format of choice. Movie capture is triggered by pressing the Movie button on...

Olympus SP-600UZ

 

This is one of the cheaper digital cameras offering extra zoom power. As you might expect I found some picture quality issues as Olympus have pushed the boundaries and kept the price down.

"Amazing... Except for the batteries."

 

Its a really good camera, don't get me wrong. I love it and wouldn't change it for a different one, It's perfect for what I use it for (pictures of my tort) but the batteries thing REALLY gets me down about it.

Amazingly detailed pictures, Epic zoom proportion.

It takes batteries. I absolutely hate the fact that it takes batteries, I don't know about anybody else, but mine eats batteries alive. Hubby says get the rechargeable batteries, but it doesn't matter, my camera will go through 4 batteries a week.

Great Specs, Lousy Execution

 

Wanting a step-up in features from our old point and shoot, I purchased this camera as a Christmas present for my wife in Dec 2011. Year and a half later, she is thoroughly demoralized and frustrated. She uses the Auto-picture mode with consistently...

Zoom lens ; Reading about product features before using the camera ; Average 720p cam-corder funtion

Grainy indoor shots with awful color composition ; Grainy low-light shots ; Fussy autoflash mode ; Poor image stabilization ; Hit or miss outdoor shots ; Unreliable Auto picture mode
