Great find, Edi. At that price it's worth it just to have as a second camera for the zoom alone. Some great reviews on the web as well.

I just bought the panasonic FZ8 for £150 on ebuyer.

how does this compare with it ??
From: http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/olympussp550uz/page17.asp

"Resolution isn't quite up with the best cameras in this class - the Panasonic FZ8 in particular knocks spots off it

You'll be pleased to read that, no doubt. :)
Nice find edi thanks i did look at this one in the Argos book so a big saving to be had.

I have been looking around for a decent camera as mine packed up on.........Xmas morning when the grandchildren came round to open their presents.

Not a bad camera. Anyone wanting to use this for movies will be disappointed by the fact that you can't have sound if you're using optical zoom mode.
Thats a damn good price, for what is an excellent camera.

Good Find Edi
Hi all.
This looks like a great camera. However I bought this one http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/128829/kodak-easyshare-v1253-digital-camer/all/all/hot/ after reading about it on here.
If you were me would you sent the kodak back and buy the Olympus? I need it for a present for the 9th so I have to make a decision very quickly!
Thanks for any help :)
Kodak far inferior
If it's for a woman, keep the kodak
If it's for a woman, keep the kodak

Oi whats that supposed to mean? :) Cant women work electricals then?
Actually no its for a man and i'm going to order the Olympus as it does seem the better of the two.
Thanks Mikeyw for your opinion.
I've got a point and shoot Canon IXUS but are keen to get into phtography a little more. Is this a good starting camera (i.e not just auto settings) or should i go for a DSLR?
get a dslr if you want to get into photography - without a doubt - there is so much more that you can do on them, and you can pick up a nikon d40 for £299 i know that seems like a lot more, but in the long run its worth it.

lol nothing to do with that

But women generally prefer smaller cameras

"To fit in their handbags"
It's a shame it doesn't have a rechargeable battery or take SD cards, still an amazing deal though...
I don't like the sound of the Autofocus problem otherwise I'd be interested.
How does it compare to Fuji Finepix S6500fd? The reviews on photographyblog & trustedreview have rated this Olympus not that good in image quality. But for this price it's not that bad.

Thats very true :-D
Mine came this morning and i'm about to send the kodak one back. Its a nice looking camera thats for sure :thumbsup:
I am awaiting delivery of mine, but I am struggling to find a good price for a memory card despite searching- I think I need the following Xd card;
Olympus Brand - Panorama mode only works with an Olympus card
Type H - Video record time cut to 4 mins max otherwise
1GB minimum (Not sure if there is a 2Gb Type H available or compatible)
If anyone can help I would be really grateful-
Had this camera now for a couple of days - 1st impressions are very good
Really pleased with purchase
