Featured on the SP-800UZ is the massive 30x wide optical zoom lens with a 35mm equivalent of 28-840mm. When the camera is off the lens retracts into the body, keeping it rather small for the size of the lens. Its maximum aperture of F2.8-F5.6 allows for good low-light shooting. The sensor-shift image stabilization helps steady the camera when using the telephoto end of the zoom with the camera in your hands. To help protect the lens, Olympus has provided a lens cap that fits over the lens, but pops off if the camera is turned on, just in case you forget.

Focus Range:
Normal:             Wide: 3.9" - infinity (0.1m - infinity)
                           Tele: 70.9" - infinity (1.8m - infinity)
Macro:               Wide: 3.9" - infinity (0.1m - infinity)
                           Tele: 70.9" - infinity (1.8m - infinity)
Super Macro:   0.39" - 4.72" (0.01m - 0.12m)

Well concealed under a flap, the I/O ports shown here include a multi-connector on top and an HDMI output on the bottom. The multi-connector allows you to connect to a computer or standard TV with the included cables. With the HDMI port, you can view your images and HD Videos on a HDTV, but you will need to purchase the optional HDMI cable.

Although the camera features 2GB of internal memory, it also accepts SD/SDHC memory cards. These cards range up to 32GB in storage and give you endless space for more shooting. The SP-800UZ is shown here with a spacious 16GB ADATA Class 6 SDHC card.

Powering the SP-800UZ is a 3.7V, 925mAh rechargeable Li-Ion battery. Olympus claims that this battery is powerful enough to provide approx. 200 shots on a single charge. Also included is an external quick charger with foldout prongs. This allows you to take with you easily and also allows you to keep a spare battery charged and on hand at all times.
