Olympus SP-810UZ review


Limited control and poor quality in low light, but for outdoor telephoto photography on a tight budget, it's a reasonable choice

Olympus SP-810UZ Compact Digital Camera Review


The Olympus SP-810UZ is a compact digital camera with a massive 36x optical zoom. Available for less than £200, it appears at first glance to be quite a bargain, Daniel Bell finds out if it is.

Good value for money; Decent image quality; Massive optical zoom range; Fast hi-speed shooting

Focusing can be a little slugglish when using lots of optical zoom

24-864mm). It's small, too, but this tiny stature means that buttons and dials have been kept to a minimum and there's no external mode dial. Shooting modes are instead adjusted via the on-screen menu, and it doesn't feature any manual or semi-auto...

Olympus SP-810UZ Review


Olympus has had a very successful 2011, wherein they introduced some really 'head turning' cameras. The PEN range of Micro Four Thirds and a one-of-its-kind, the SZ-30MR, a travel compact in an extremely slim frame camera, from their camera line-up,...

Olympus SP-810UZ


A compact ultrazoom that sacrifices image quality for size

Sharp lens for a superzoom

Noisy, even at low ISOs; Small size is hard to handle; Control over common variables is limited

For us, innovation is always welcome in the saturated ultrazoom market. Olympus’ SP series deserves credit here for trying something different. Their goal is to fit the same capabilities of a clunky superzoom camera into a smaller, more portable body....
