Olympus SZ-30MR


$399.00 Released March, 2011

Product Shot 1 The Pros:24x optical zoom lens (24-600mm 35mm equivalent). Image stabilization - essential for such a long zoom. 1080p video recording with stereo audio.

The Cons:Lens is slow - f3-6.9, poor for shooting in low light. Slippery grip. Display lacks quality - despite being a higher resolution than your average point and shoot it is not very sharp, has poor viewing angles and is difficult to view in bright light.

The SZ-30MR comes from the S range of Olympus' compact point-and-shoot cameras. This comes at the top of the range having a Multi Recording function to go with its 24x superzoom and 16 megapixel CMOS sensor.
