Super zoom at a super price,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Olympus SP-810UZ Compact Digital Camera - Black (14.0MP, 3.0 inch TFT, 36 x Wide Optical Zoom) (Electronics)I have owned this for two weeks now and I have put it through it's paces,I have been a photographer for over 30 years now and still enjoy the hobby, I own several compact cameras and a couple of Nikon digital cameras the thing that I always crave for is more reach to get this reach with SLR cameras you have got too pay big bucks for big lenses I suffer from chronic back pain and it has left me disabled there is nothing like getting on my motability scooter with camera(s) to hand ,the Olympus is quite outstanding you can take a photograph of the moon and you can see the craters on the moon!
There are features on it that I have not seen on other cameras is the mirror effect it's so funny , I don't use my SLR cameras any more as they are heavy and cumbersome , the Olympus is so small and light and the price is very reasonable compared to Panasonic and Fuji.To sum up I would say this is a fabulous camera.

what settings are you using to get decent moon shots, I get nothing but camera shake? I'm having real difficulties with this camera.

Hi Sally I hope you are well, first of all get yourself a monopod this will allow you too support the camera so you don't start getting the terrible trembles! connect your camera to your monopod if you wait until it goes really dark all you will get is a shiny plate effect , the best time to take a picture of the moon is dusk if you can see the moon zoom in to it and try to support your back against a wall / solid object , zoom in and don't zoom all the way in do it a little bit of the time ( Don't forget you can get a small picture of the moon and then crop it in camera remember you have got 14 MP to use) and just keep trying you will get there in the end.I have been a photographer for a long time now and there is still lots to learn,I hope this and other readers benefit.Kind regards Martin.
