I am quite pleased with my SP-620UZ. The zoom is fantastic. I'm also pleased with many features the camera provides. My old Olympus SP-550UZ utilized an XD card with a max of only 2G, and requied an XD adapter inorder to insert the SD card into some computer USB ports. My SP-620-UZ utilized most SD cards and I could not be happier with my purchase. Another great feature of my new camera is its light weight:-).

It is a good camera for under $100.00 but I would think as a reputable company, you would have listened to your customers and fixed the lens cap! It won't stay on at all!

This is an excellent camera for a beginning photographer! The only thing the lens cap won't stay on. The online booklet could tell a little more though, but the picture quality is excellent and it is not hard to figure out how to work the camera.

I haven't had a chance to use the camera a lot, but so far it works great. The lens cover is bad. It will not stay on. It would be nice I could get a new lens cover to protect my lens. The bag that came with the camera needs a strap so you can carry it on your shoulder. The bag that came with it has just a small handle.

I love this camera! I bought it because I wanted a more up-to-date camera to use at my grandson's graduation. I found the features:zoom, videos, as well as still pics very good quality. I do find on annoying feature--the lens cap is very inadequate, it keeps falling off. It needs to snap on and off... Design a new cap and send me one, that would make the camera about perfect!

I got this camera from an Olympus email . deal was camera, case, corel paint program for $99.00. This camera lacks a lot of bells and whistles which is good for me. I am not a buff. I bought it for the zoom because I work at sea and things can be far away at times.
So far it has been just what I wanted. Good mega pixels and zoom.
The one problem I have is the lens cap. It seems like an afterthought. I am in a rough environment and need to protect the lens. I have not come up with a way to retrofit a lens cap. If someone has an idea please post

After going through years of great simple point & shoot cameras I decided to take a small leap. I picked this camera because of all the features it comes with at an extremely low price. I printed the owner's manual from the included disc. Someone here says no owner's manual was included. It's on the disc ! Anyway I printed it then took it to my local Office Depot & had them cut the pages in half. Then I purchased the correct size 3 ring binder (the small one). Punched the holes & there is the owner's manual. Our printed does print on "both" sides of the sheet of paper which helps. I practiced using the camera around the yard, flowers, trees, birds, the horses & dogs. I was amazed on how clear the pictures are. The menu dial is very functional, but takes a few tries. I also purchased a larger memory card this time, it's worth the extra $10 over the small one. The regular zoom to the digital zoom is incredible. This camera also has a multiple picture setting by simply holding the button longer, no recovery time in between. I don't want to upset some on here, but, taking extra time to read ALL of the owner's manual would prevent almost all the negatives posted here. My wife has an expensive Nikon. I like simple easy cameras. Also the styling of this model looks like it would cost twice as much. I shopped around and purchased this camera & paid $129 + tax & got the case for free. This camera also has a video feature & it is perfect for short takes. Purchase a AA Battery charger system to carry 4 back ups at all times, it's worth being prepared. Have Fun ! !

Only had this camera for a week and, so far, love it. Exactly what I expected and more. As an old film camera guy, I have tried a few other digitals, and didn't like them. This camera has many good features and is a joy to use. The only fault I have found so far is the lens cap. As others have reported, it falls off easily. I fixed it by putting a small dab of epoxy adhesive inside the rim. Provides just enough resistance to keep it on. Problem solved. Don't think that you can get a better value than the 620. It's a lot of camera for the money.

This camera offers many features but is not too complicated to work out. Good value camera, definitely recommended. Only fault the lens cap does not fit properly and keeps falling off.

The selection of the items in the on screen menu is problematic. Some times it works and other it jumps a selection.
