SZ-31MR

Rating: no rating

Lowest Price: £402.00

Brilliant stills, full HD movies and a zoom that goes from "wow, look at this valley" all the way to "oh, what a beautiful butterfly!" - without you moving.

The SZ-31MR is an extraordinary compact. Together with its outstanding 24x wide optical zoom lens (25-600mm*), new iHS technologies give it the power and versatility to capture movies and stills in superb blur-free quality, often at the same time. iHS draws on Olympusí 16-Megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and two separate TruePic V image processors (originally developed for D-SLR cameras) to dramatically improve low-light performance, speed up camera response and enhance scene and subject recognition. Combined with high-speed sequential shooting and high-speed autofocus, iHS cuts down picture noise and enhances resolution and colour gradation with fast-moving subjects, night scenes and other tricky shots. Multi-motion Movie IS and Dual Image Stabilisation all but eliminate blur, even when youíre walking and shooting at the same time. IS is crucial with macros or close-ups of inaccessible subjects, when even the slightest wobble might otherwise ruin stand-out shots that regular lightweight compacts, with their weaker zoom lenses, simply canít deliver.
