comparing Olympus sp-800uz and Fuji HS10

10 years 1 month ago #3149 by peepingthomas
The Olympus SP-800UZ is the newest camera with 30x zoom. Another brand which just came out with 30x zoom is the Fuji HS10. Unfortunately, I did not see very much info about the SP-800UZ. I wonder whether the camera is not well received. I manage to browse quickly at a local camera store. It looks nicely built and quick shots look OK on the viewer. Would anyone who owns one like to comment on its image quality?

Sorry to see this question go unanswered for so long. I have one, use it alot and love it. I shoot racecars alot and the 30X zoom and small size make it ideal for me. The picture quality has been better than I could have hoped for in such an inexpensive camera. I do some cropping of my photos and still get good quality 8x10 prints.

I have this olympus model and absolutely love it!

this was my first digital bridge camera and the quality of photos are great, it has fun stuff for the "creatively challenged", but the deal breaker for me was that excellent macros it offers ( i do a lot of close-up photos) for the price- ( i could not afford a dslr at the time)

only neg about the 30x zoom for me anywya is that i ned the tripod as i have little luck with no blurr unless it is a quick shot.

i know nothing about the fugi to compare-
