My Olympus SP-820UZ Digital Camera Review
Design and Handle
For beating the predecessor Olympus SP-810 UZ, The SP-820UZ Digital Camera comes with the 40x 22.4-896mm Ultra Wide-Angle which makes this camera looked more like a DSLR, And the dimension also looks larger than the old one. But don’t worry the weight, I think it is easy to carry like other light weight camera. There are two skin options black and silver, I will recommend the silver which i fell in love at first sight with it.
The camera has a 3.0 inch LCD screen which is sharp, And it is hard to find any useless buttons in the surface that you can control all the functions in the system menu.
The 14MP CMOS sensor in this camera has the support from IHS tech, Which can not only help sharp your images, But also do well in video shooting, People love the 1080p video recording more than the 720P videos as the 1080P can produce the high quality scene and audio.Of course we can’t forget The effort of TruePic V Image Processor, which has the double Anti-Shaking feature can maintain the shooting state, Besides, The face detection function in this processor is also very useful.
The weakness of the Olympus SP-820UZ is not in image quality but control, For beginners, The auto mode would has a good benefits but if you are an professional photographer, you will be mad with it that you can’t find the manual control in this camera, And for traveler, The NO GPS setting would be a problem too.
Verdict and Price
“Olympus haven’t changed much with regards to the body, but image quality is much better, clearly an improved sensor has been used on this new model. Although it’s a more expensive model than the SP-810UZ, the SP-820UZ is a camera we are happy to recommend.” – ephotozine
All in all, For people who start to learn the photography and want to get a quality digi camera, I think this is a good choice for you. What’s more, The price is as low as they can go.
