The Decisive Trifecta


Olympus SZ-15 Digital Camera The SZ-15 Digital Camera from Olympus is a compact point-and-shoot digital camera with a 16MP sensor, powerful 24x optical zoom lens and a host of assistive and creative features. The 16MP CCD sensor combined with the Truepic III+ Image Processor provides rich, detailed, colorful images and fast transfer and performance speeds. 720p HD video capture with a dedicated one-touch button and HDMI output is also supported by the SZ-15.

The lens on the SZ-15 is a 24x wide-angle optical zoom that provides the focal length equivalency of 25-600mm in the 35mm format. At 25mm, you have a true wide-angle lens that can shoot expansive vistas, interiors and inclusive group shots and 600mm is a super-telephoto length that can magnify distant subjects or shoot creative close-ups. A digital zoom function is also available for even further reach if necessary. And Dual Image Stabilization offers clearer images by reducing the blurring effects of camera shake when shooting at long telephoto lengths and in low light situations.

A 3.0" LCD screen with anti-glare technology provides composition and playback viewing and numerous assistive features make it easy to get the best shot possible. Intelligent Auto makes all camera adjustments to capture your images with their optimal settings and Scene Modes allow you to match the camera's settings to the scene you are shooting, whether it is Sports, Sunset, or Night Portrait, for example. 11 Creative Art Filters, such as Watercolor, Fisheye and Miniature are available to add special effects to your images and Beauty Mode lets you smooth out wrinkles, whiten teeth and add touch-ups for perfect portraiture.
