I have had my SP800UZ for about two years. I posted comments when I first got it. Was dissapointed then and still am. Admittedly it is chuck full of techo wonders but falls down in areas for actual use. lacking an eye level viewer is a big deficit in my opinion. The close up is not really much of a close up. Approaches macro but not quite. It will not focus at really close ranges. As a former long-time professional I take care of my equipment value a few features that help with that chore. One is the use of a UV filter a/k/a invisible lens cap. The lens on this camera is right up front and hightly vunerable to damage. Of course, other filters cannot be used either. e.g. pola. There is no means of attaching a lens hood. I believe a lens hood is as important for sharp pictures as good lenses. Meaning, pic quality is not up to what I achieve with my other cameras, even older models.
This is a no or one star rating. Do not buy.
