Olympus Stylus SP-100 Digital Camera Pairing a 16MP 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor with a 24x optical zoom ED f/3-6.9 lens, the Olympus silver or black Digital Stylus SH-2 Camera features RAW capture of the S-series and features a 35mm equivalent 25-600mm focal length for flexibility.

Built-in Wi-Fi connectability for review and monitoring and review, a 3.0" LCD 460k-dot touchscreen is built into the camera's design. Its touchscreen abilities are available as an intuitive avenue for navigating the menu system and for making use of a slew of camera features, including touch autofocus control, a built-in intervalometer, and fine-tuning of Live Guide settings

An array of nightscape modes are available to photographers for improved poor light photo capabilities. Included is Live Composite which compiles multiple images into a single image while Nightscape Video settings results in stable framing during handheld photography and when zooming. Also, it has voluminous Art Filters and the Photo Story capability.
