'The SP-800UZ's performance is just average for a superzoom camera.'
'The Olympus SP-800UZ shows poor metering reliability.'
'If we take issue it's that image-writing times are quite sluggish - the camera freezing for 5 seconds while a 14-megapixel JPEG file is being committed to SD card for example.'
'Purple/blue fringing around subjects in high-contrast areas is common to megazooms, but the Z981 produces above average amounts of it.'
'Kodak's EasyShare Z981 includes the company's face detection technology, capable of detecting up to five faces in a scene.'
