Pleasing images, quality build, high resolution screen makes for an excellent camera


Olympus SZ-31MR iHS 24x superzoom Olympus gives you the photographic tools to produce photos and videos that express your own creativity. A 16MP CMOS sensor captures details in a high-resolution format, while the amazing 24x zoom lens can handle pretty much any sort of photographic situation--from the very wide-angle 25mm for landscapes and interiors all the way up to 600mm (equivalents in 35mm format) long telephoto that captures wildlife or sports shots far from the the subject. A 3" high-resolution 920,000-dot touch-panel monitor is ideal for composing and reviewing your photos and videos, and you can even use the touch panel for some camera controls.

Beautiful full HD 1080p video is available at the touch of a button, and Magic Filter effects can be used with video as well as still photos. High-speed shooting at up to 7 frames per second at full resolution is on tap as well. Smart Panorama and 3D Photo modes provide more ways to express yourself creatively. The SZ-31MR is compatible with Eye-Fi wireless memory cards. - Feb 8, 2012
