Olympus SZ-20

$299.00 Released March, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Great price for the features offered. Ergonomic hand grip makes for easier shooting. 3D and Smart Panorama shooting modes.

The Cons:Cheap feeling, slightly oversized plastic body. Inconsistent image quality - poor autofocus and metering.

The Olympus SZ-20 comes in the middle of the SZ range and is very similar to the SZ-30MR. It is a compact point-and-shoot camera packed with photo and video features, yet remains fully portable and small enough to fit in your pocket.

The SZ-20 comes equipped with a 3" LCD for easy viewing and playback of vidoes. The camera also features a 16 megapixel CMOS image sensor and a 12.5x optical zoom plus 4x digital zoom. The SZ-20 comes with 30 shooting modes, including 8 magic filters for artistic effects and smart panorama for capturing scenery. This camera also includes full HD movie recording which can be played back on a full HDTV.  This camera comes with Eye-Fi compatibility for uploading pictures straight to your computer or emailing them directly, making it easier to share your snaps with friends and family. Although the SZ-20 doesn't have the Multi-Recording feature of the SZ-30MR, and has only a 12.5x optical zoom rather than a 24x optical zoom, it is packed with enough technology to take great pictures.
