Olympus Stylus SP-820UZ iHS Review

 

This camera offers a big zoom for a low price. It tends to expose accurately and its flash is powerful. However, image quality is not tops, full-resolution burst is slow, and manual modes are lacking. But if rapid-fire low-res burst and 19 Beauty Fix...

OLYMPUS SP-820UZ iHS

 

Olympus has been my favorite camera for years and this one has not let me down. I love it!

Uses AA batteries so no charger necessary. Clear,crisp pictures. Videos are easy and clear. Takes pictures with windows in background, blocks out the extra light for a clear picture. Much more!!! Easy to use

None so far

This is an awesome camera and it works just as advertised. I really love it as I can take pictures of birds and they don't fly away.

Where's the view finder?

 

Great camera! Does everything exceptionally well! Very pleased with the results! The only thing missing that I would like to have is a view finder, so that I don't have to rely on the display on those sunny days when everything is so bright outside!...
