This camera just looks flat out stupid.

At this price range, quality is really OK. Olympus impresses me a lot with their products. SZ series looks even better in terms of dynamic range (SZ-10, SZ-30) but they are a little more expensive, but I would buy them.

I would really like to see a review of the 720UZ, it’s far more attractive because of the CMOS sensor.

I have this camera and I must say as an entry level unit its actually a very competent piece of kit. you certainly get a lot of snap for your cash as this is a perfect travel companion and could quite possibly win a competition or two, although it wont win awards in the david baily world it will certainly not disappoint when the inlaws pop over and you show them your weekend away snaps. if I had to rate this camera I would give it a respectable 7/10. for the price tag? well lets just say you could do far worse.

BOTH our cameras have malfunctioned within (thankfully) our 2 yr warranty..both our cameras crap out..put in brand new batteries, mine wont even open lense, my hubby’s acts like it will take a pic, then says battery empty. We have always used “Rayovac” betteries, as they have always lasted longer than any on the market.Good thing we got the extended warranty, hopefully wont have any issues returning them. The battery compartment is WEAK with tiny plastic tabs that threaten to break. Especially since thats where the memory card is, & accessing the card every couple weeks to download pics..weakens the already poorly designed battery compartment tabs. It does take decent pics, but for the price paid, was expecting a LOT longer life expectancy..not too happy :(

My first camera is a Canon EOS 600, I use the Olympus SP-620UZ as a back up. I must say that it has never let me down.Its easy to use and you can get very good results if you take care.I would recommend it.

I own this camera and I am highly impressed with the super macro mode. I got this camera for this reason alone and its proved amazing…However I am now into bird watching and the full zoom and image quality just isn’t good enough for what I require. Its very easy to use but the lens cap is a complete design flaw!
I would give this camera an 8/10 and I will not be getting rid of it as too good for butterflies

I bought this Camera on sale for $100.00. Allways worked like it should have. I wish it had a view finder. had to see e subject in the bright sun light. Other than that it is a champ.
