Question about Olympus SP800UZ Digital Camera

1 Answer

My old camera was an Olympus Camedia c-765 digital. My new one is an Olypmus SP-800UZ 14 megapixel. The more I use the SP-8OOuz the more disappointed with the pictures I take. None of them seem sharply in focus like they were with the Camedia camera. Am I doing something wrong or is it a failing in the camera? I have tried most of the multiple settings but I am just not satisified. I thought with having more megapixels I would get a better picture. Am I wrong? Thank you

No, you are not wrong. When there are more pixels, the picture must be more clearly and you can zoom it more. Because you have experience with another Olympus camera, I'm inclined to believe that
something is wrong with your new camera. Try to put it on AUTO mode and see the difference.If everything will be ok, it means that you are wrong when you set the manual parameters.

I bought an Olympus SP -800Uz in Las Vegas U.S.A. Should it have had seperate software in the box, Joan U.K.


No, the Olympus SP-800uz has the PC Software on its internal memory.

The quickstart guide does tell the procedure to follow: Initialize camera
and installing the ib software. If you did format the internal memory of the
camera, the software setup is lost. You can find alternative and better
Olympus software here. The ib software you can find here.

The Olympus SP-800uz digital camera does not come with a CD.
All PC software is delivered on the cameras internal memory (setup.exe).

When you need software, you can also use the better and free
Olympus Viewer 2 program for PC and Mac.

I can not do initialation program with my new camera sp-800uz. dont have cd for doeing it, and my computer gives me oceania and asia distric. how shall i go on furter to continue with programs?


The Olympus SP-800uz camera does not come with a CDROM.

The software for Windows is available on the internal memory of the camera, if you did not format / delete it! If you are using Windows, the software should popup a message to install it, when there is no SD-card installed in the camera (only internal memory), if you connect the camera to the computer.

As an alternative, you can download another free and much better Olympus software program, the Olympus Viewer 2. See here (you need to put in your cameras serial number to download it):

Just got olympus sp-800uz but get 2 black lines down side screen can i make it full screen


Are you talking about the camera's LED screen, or your computer monitor screen?
Anyway, the Olympus SP-800uz camera has 4:3 image sizes and widescreen 16:9.
Just set your camera to the size you need to get your images shown fullscreen.
An alternative is to use a graphic (or tool) program that is able to crop your images.

Installed the Olympus sp-800uz to my computer, the program was running ok at first but when i click on the icon to open to view photos it does not open. What should i do to correct this problem?


If you have installed the [ib] software from the camera, this program seems to be very unstable and buggy. I would recommend to use the new Olympus Viewer 2 software instead. De-install the [ib] software and download and install the (free) Olympus Viewer 2 software. It supports the SP-800uz.
See: http://support.olympus-imaging.com/ov2download/index/?Lang=ENU
You need to put in your camera serialnumber to be able to download it.
