I found this excellent to use, Very easy to set up, fun to play with and each individual setting proved itself worthy.
Full screen is ideal however i still have the habit of bringing it up to my eye, its so easy to operate and so easy to use!! Runs off 4 batteries and they last a long time, and setting up on the computer to transfer your pictures is the easiest thing i have done. I was expecting lots of mumbo jumbo and difficult settings, however it was easy and my photo's were transferred in minutes.
The only problem i had, was somehow i set automatic settings for when it was switched on - and its not the setting i wanted! This means i have to play around before taking a picture!
I would completely recommend this to anyone, beginner wanting to start with a bit of photography, to a professional who wants a little something to carry around.
Firstly i would like to say that this camera is extremely good value for what it is, the 12 megapixels mean that photos taken are extremely vivid, and zooming is possible to quite a large extent, because when zooming in on a photo taken it will not blur. It is very aesthetically pleasing, with grip being provided so there is not much fear of dropping you camera when taking pictures on the beach! One feature that i also like is that it takes AA batteries, which are readily available. This camera also has a very large zoom (420mm) which is good for nature photos and animal shots. The only downside i've found with this camera is that you can't zoom in movie taking mode, unless you mute the camera, a little strange... All in all, if you want a camera with good zoom, crisp photos and handy features this is it, but don't buy if you want to use mainly for movies.
Light and more impressive design, equipped with a small and powerful wide optical zoom, the Olympus SP-600UZ makes other contenders pale in comparison. Whether snapping photos or trying out the HD movie shooting option, a colossal internal memory gives you the freedom to capture more. A built-in dual image stabilization provides rendering clean, sharp images and high-speed shooting let you get extra-close and shoot extra-fast - just what you need to get that once in a lifetime shot. The sheer variety of SP series features lets you take your very best shots, for example AF tracking follows your subject even when in motion, and i-Auto identifies your shooting environment, automatically adjusting your camera settings.
Little sister SP-600UZ packs a punch with a 15x optical wide zoom, 2.7" LCD and SD slot. The 12-megapixel edition shares most of the family traits, including dual image stabilization, HD movie capability and HDMI technology.
