Olympus SP-720UZ Review

 

Olympus recently reshaped the structure of their digital cameras to make it easier to understand. The SP-720UZ now falls under the Traveller range of cameras. This type of camera is a high zoom all-in-one model with easy functionality and lots of fun...

The Olympus SP-720UZ is a camera aimed squarely at the traveller who wants that little bit more out of their picture taking machine without all the hullabulloo of understanding shutter speeds and apertures. It offers point and shoot simplicity with the...

Poor image quality in low light

 

The SP-720UZ seems to use ISO 800 on low light photos which creates bad image quality.

Good photos in bright light. Good zoom range

Poor image quality in low light, such as indoors. My 10 year old Olympus C-700UZ takes better quality images in low light

Simply Amazing

 

For the price this camera is simply amazing, I picked it up on sale for $110 (rare deal) but I'd pay $200 for this outright it's that good

None I can think of, price per performance is amazing
