2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great for zoom in shots, awesome photo features, light, easy to hold

Cons: cant shoot at night, or as sun is setting at all. all pictures become blurry and shaky.

Other Thoughts: overall this camera is good, especially for the price, however if your trying to take pictures in the evening it Is HORRIBLE, easier to just use your cell phone,

5 out of 5 eggshaving fun with this camera

Pros: I bought this primarily because I did not like the cheaper point and shoot I had, and I was going to Vermont for a week. Before going, as I practiced, I was surprised at how good the Portrait setting shots were coming out. The camera made me look good. I find myself seeking out river walks, state forests, and wetlands, becoming addicted to the great landscape pictures I am getting. One shot will be a 26X zoom to a golden evergreen in a glade, the next a Super Macro on a flower with a bee or butterfly, and so forth.

Cons: The only can think of is that it does not serve a hot breakfast. But anything I need a camera to do, it does, and it is not that difficult for me to figure out how.

Other Thoughts: Whenever I see people along the way with my Olympus around my neck, I take their pictures, and get their e-mail to send it to them. Like I say, I am not a good photographer, up until now anyway, and I am proud to send these photos to people. It's a great way and a good excuse for meeting people.

4 out of 5 eggsPoor image quality in low light

Pros: Good photos in bright light. Good zoom range.

Cons: Poor image quality in low light, such as indoors. My 10 year old Olympus C-700UZ takes better quality images in low light.

Other Thoughts: The SP-720UZ seems to use ISO 800 on low light photos which creates bad image quality.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply Amazing

Pros: For the price this camera is simply amazing, I picked it up on sale for $110 (rare deal) but I'd pay $200 for this outright it's that good.

Cons: None I can think of, price per performance is amazing!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat camera

Pros: small enough to carry and still feel like a mans camera when using.. with 14 MP along with the 26X optical zoom and setting features allows this camera to take some brilliant photos for a great price

Cons: battery life should be longer or offer an extended life battery.. but then again if you turn off eye-fi and set to power saver mode it holds up allot longer..
so I ordered extra batteries

Other Thoughts: wil like to have an optional extended life battery

Cons: None very happy with this purchase

Other Thoughts: Would not hesitate to buy this camera again. First Olympus I have tried . Glad I found this one on the egg.
