Olympus SP-800UZ ‘Super Camera’

I enjoy finding these “classic” digicams from the early part of this century (it’s funny to say that) with CCD sensors and sharp mega-zoom lenses.

The lens dominates the camera body!
Olympus wide-angle optical 30x zoom lens with macro and super macro capabilities.
The camera features a large (3-inch) color LCD display. 14 megapixels is plenty of resolution for such a compact digital bridge camera.
Actually, it has dual stabilization. In super macro mode, the camera lens can focus as close as 1 cm!

The Olympus SP-800UZ Digital Camera lets you get close to the action with its 30x wide-angle 28mm zoom lens. This lens has an amazing 28-840mm range (equivalent in 35mm). If your subject is far away you can still get up close and personal with the telephoto end of the zoom, while the 28mm wide-angle lets you capture breathtaking panoramas. Considering these capabilities, this is still a very compact 14-megapixel camera. Composing photos is easy on the camera’s bright 3.0″ LCD screen, and it is easy to view even in the bright sun.

Intelligent Auto (iAuto) Mode analyzes your composition and automatically adjusts critical exposure settings for brilliant, hassle-free shooting. Other features including Shadow Adjustment Technology, AF Tracking, and Dual Image Stabilization, make it easy to take great photos. Take beautiful portraits, by softening shadows and smoothing wrinkles and blemishes on your subject’s face with the Beauty Mode feature. Edits can also be made inside the camera after taking the picture.

The camera allows you to create stylized looks for your photos with Creative Art Filters, and use the Panorama mode to create one large image. If you need to capture a moving subject, the camera shoots HD-quality movies with the touch of one button. You can store all of your images on the internal 2GB memory, or use SD/ SDHC media cards to better interface with computers, digital picture frames, and HDTVs.
