Olympus 14-Megapixel 40x Optical-Zoom Digital Camera (SP-820)

With a 40x zoom lens focusing images onto its 14-megapixel sensor, this compact digital camera from Olympus captures distant action in high-resolution snaps or video. Aside from its impressive resolving power, the camera also uses digital wizardry—including a panorama mode ideal for sweeping landscapes and an HDR mode that maintains realistic color under harsh lighting conditions—to improve photo quality. A dual-image-stabilization system, meanwhile, ensures that photos have minimal blur, even when the camera is pointed at a sasquatch.

In the Box: Camera, camera strap, four AA alkaline batteries, USB cable, lens cap, lens-cap strap, warranty card, set-up and manual CD, quick-start guide, Olympus viewer software

It is a great little camera, especially at this price. I love all the special settings to take unusual photos, in the magic mode & the telescopic ability is better than some cameras I have paid much more money. If I had found this camera first, I wouldn't have purchased my big, bulky expensive model with all the interchangable lenses. I do wish it had come with a hard copy manual. I dislike having to look everything up on my downloaded manual. All the companies seem to be going to this method, however.

Love this camera! It has just enough user adjustment to make it interesting without too much to make it...well, too much. Great middle of the road camera with an impressive 40X optical zoom lens and image stabilization that is very effective. I can shoot handheld easily at the 40X level. Also, the effects settings are terrific. I use them a lot and have captured some great shots. I am pleased with it's use of AA batteries instead of a special battery. I bought eneloop rechargeables at Costco and have experienced great battery life using all settings with flash and zoom. Also, the price was very good through Groupon. I am very happy with this purchase! Thanks Groupon!

Camera is actually great, but I am having difficulty finding a memory card for it. Olympus won't respond to my emial. I ordered it for a very special occasion, expected to fully use it, until I realized it needed a memory card that I have yet to find. It was explained to me that the Olympus SP 820 needed a specific memory card. A local reatailer was unable to find a fit, so I ordered one from Olympus recommended by the website, paid rush shipping. Did not fit!!!! I have a camera that I can not use without having to apply "flinstone" procedures due to the memory card thatmay not exist! Very frustrating!!!

One of the BEST power zooms for excellent image quality, does macro very well, various scenes/filters, good battery life (AA are easy to get if needed), and a well designed and easy to navigate menu.

I have a slightly older model Canon with similar stats and I would say this Olympus outperforms on photo quality as well as video. I can't wait to really break it in!

Great camera / great price. Sure beats carrying extra lenses and can just set it on auto and click away. If you want to 'work' a little harder you can change various settings for various results.

I absolutely love this camera! I have no experience with cameras so; I look for a point and shoot. This camera is exceptional for lousy novices like me. If you are looking for a camera that will make your photos about as professional as they can be, this is the camera for you!

Great price compared to other online stores along with a accurate description of the camera. Shipping for the camera was 4 days earlier then promised. Will definitely come back to Groupon first for any electronic needs.
