Olympus SP-720UZ Review

 

Olympus recently reshaped the structure of their digital cameras to make it easier to understand. The SP-720UZ now falls under the Traveller range of cameras. This type of camera is a high zoom all-in-one model with easy functionality and lots of fun...

The Olympus SP-720UZ is a camera aimed squarely at the traveller who wants that little bit more out of their picture taking machine without all the hullabulloo of understanding shutter speeds and apertures. It offers point and shoot simplicity with the...

14mp 26-676mm zoom 5mp full hdd, a remarkable bit of kit I say that because it is small, light in weight & packs a great punch, very little blur even in super-fast burst mode.

Excellent lenses, good sharp photos, fantastic zoom. Have taken great shots on full zoom even without a tripod. Great selection of settings, with main choices on a dial with further selections on the display screen. Like that the flash has to be raised...

Haven't found any.

Olympus SP-720UZ

 

Solid construction, feels substantial but is still small enough to carry easily. Picture quality very good. At this point I haven't explored all its functions but am confident that this provides everything that I had hoped for.

None yet.

This is my first 'proper' camera and I was able to take good pics with it immediately. I'm looking forward to learning its more intimate details.

Haven't found any so far.

Olympus SP-720UZ

 

A good 'in between' camera, better equipped than a compact, with many useful 'magic' features and a very useful zoom capability.

Not found any so far, as have only had the camera a short while. Am investigating why an 8gb card from a previous camera was rejected by this one, but a new 4gb was OK. Nothing in the documentation to suggest a max. card size...
