SZ-20

Rating: no rating

The SZ-20 is an impressive 12.5x super wide optical zoom. With this sort of zooming power it's easy to take exceptional shots, from the expressive face of a gargoyle high up on a church roof to an emotive movie close-up of battling athletes. The pixel-rich 1080p Full HD movie format ensures the best moving picture quality currently available in a compact camera - with breathtaking realism, clarity and colour when users play back on a large Full HD TV.
