I am a 79 year old male who has been taking picture sense I was 12 years of age. I have taken thousands of pictures with many cameras. My Olympus SP-810UZ is the best camera I have ever owned. There is not a camera I have used that has given me brighter pictures. I now wish I could have owned my Olympus when I was on my trips to Africa taking pictures of many many animals.

While this could be a great camera, I am very frustrated due to software problems and a non-functional monitor, leaving the camera useless on the trip to Europe. Very dissatisfied. Have not had time to return the camera to the store where purchased for assistance.

I have a sp-565uz and its performance was outstanding knowing its limitation and only taking shots that were within it capability
I do the same with my new sp-810uz. The camera gives great photos if you just know its limitation.
What really surprised me was that this camera at full zoom still produced great photos
I really love this camera and would recommend it to everyone.
The only thing I miss is shooting raw photos..
The night or low light is not as good as I would like,
The flash is also not as good as I would like.
So I do bring an addition small camera with me to fill in these areas.

I'm sure it's a wonderful camera, but i can't get it to work. I have done everything in the manual but all I see when I hit the shutter is a message telling me to initialize the camera.

This is my first digital camera. I bought it because I needed a digital that had a macro feature. This camera has two macro features and many other really cool features. I love the dog/cat setting that will automatically take a photo of a dog/cat when they look at the camera. The video is great too. I also love all of the Scene settings. I had a difficult time trying to take a picture of my 3-day granddaughter in low light, so I switched to the candle light setting and the picture was fabulous.

The main reason for purchising the SP-810uz was the 36 power telefoto ability. But I have been a fan of the Olympus film camers for years and I still have four of them. My first one was an OM2n, purchased in 1972. I fell in love with it and enjoyed it tremendously! The SP-810 takes wonderful photos. Ihave not learned of all the features it contains, Ihave only had it for two weeks!

I have just started using my camera and for the most part things are going well. My only complaint is that I was at an important function and after using my camera at only one other event the battery died before I could get the most important shots. I surely thought it would last longer than it did. Do I have to use the rechargeable battery? I would prefer to be able to use a purchased battery in a pinch. I am looking forward to becoming proficient at using it well in all kinds of situatiions.
