Katie, Spalding Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Excellent lenses, good sharp photos, fantastic zoom. Have taken great shots on full zoom even without a tripod. Great selection of settings, with main choices on a dial with further selections on the display screen. Like that the flash has to be raised if you want to use it, rather than having to turn it off if you don't. Great step up from a compact.
Bad points:
Haven't found any.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Solid construction, feels substantial but is still small enough to carry easily. Picture quality very good. At this point I haven't explored all its functions but am confident that this provides everything that I had hoped for.
Bad points:

Mike, Kingston upon Hull Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A good 'in between' camera, better equipped than a compact, with many useful 'magic' features and a very useful zoom capability.

Bad points:
Not found any so far, as have only had the camera a short while. Am investigating why an 8gb card from a previous camera was rejected by this one, but a new 4gb was OK. Nothing in the documentation to suggest a max. card size...

Horace, Chard Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
14mp 26-676mm zoom 5mp full hdd, a remarkable bit of kit I say that because it is small, light in weight & packs a great punch, very little blur even in super-fast burst mode.

An Olympus Ultra Zoom ‘Traveller’ camera wears its class on its sleeve – there’s no mistaking the huge optical zoom lens on the front, nor the extraordinary character and quality of the images it delivers. That’s what makes the new SP-720UZ Traveller the camera of choice for anyone with the ambition to step up from a pint-sized point-and-shoot to a powerful, great-value, go-anywhere compact that can capture genuinely challenging shots. It offers impressive wide-angle capability for shooting landscapes, interiors and crowds. But it’s the extreme telephoto potential that really stands out. Notwithstanding its super-slim, compact design, the SP-720UZ delivers fully 26x optical magnification. That gives you the flexibility to zoom in and capture the expressive energy of wildlife, competitive sports and other unapproachable subjects without having to carry interchangeable lenses. On top the latest generation is again packed with technical wizardry like Full HD Movie and HDR Backlight Adjustment to mention just a few.

*Equivalent to a 35mm camera
