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.

This thing is simple to use it has an outstanding zoom and impeccable picture quality. You are able to go from still distance photos to HD move mode with only one button. I love it! It’s light not bulky and so much like having a SLR it’s scary! It is truly a highbred one lens does it all.

Have to say that I find this a lovely camera to work with.
I had wanted a “bridge” type and had looked at a lot of units before I made a purchase.
Still getting to grips with it and find that there is enough automatic control to ensure that my pictures turn out well and enough manual functions to let me feel in control.
Picture quality is excellent for most of the subjects that I want to work with. Ideal for garden photography and I have managed some very nice lunar shots too.
I would have liked the camera to have been capable of time-lapse continues delay shooting and for the format to be selectable between JPEG and RAW. But I had to make that trade off to get the other features that I wanted … If Olympus ever do a firmware upgrade, they may take that into account.
All in all .. a super camera and well worth the money

Without the telephoto lens on the camera (or without the use of binocculars) I would not have been visually able to identify the birds in the attached photos.
