Excellent camera, excellent price,
This review is from: Olympus SP350 Digital Camera [8MP, 3 x Optical Zoom] (Electronics)I'm no professional photographer but I've had some fantastic results with this camera, right from the first time I turned it on. It's comfortable to hold and it couldn't be easier to use. There are pre-set modes for just about every situation you can think of, and you can also adjust all the settings manually if you want/need to.
I'm planning on using this camera underwater (I have also purchased the Olympus PT-030 underwater housing) so an adjustable manual white balance was essential. The ability to shoot is RAW is also fantastic as you can edit the photos without them being compressed (as in a JPEG) and it's like getting a second chance at taking them. There are external lenses and strobes available as well, and with all settings able to be manually ajusted, this camera setup will still suit me as my needs develope and advance.
I thoroughly researched other cameras before settling on this one and found nothing but positive reviews for this camera. I've also seen other photographs taken with this camera and they are fantastic.
In my opinion, this camera represents a bridge between the compact point-and-shoot camera and the professional DSLR, at an extremely affordable price. Even when purchased with the underwater housing, this setup came in at under £400 - you can't get much better than that!
