Olympus SZ-20 digital camera : Just after launching the Olympus SZ-10 last month, Olympus already announces it's latest digital camera model, the Olympus SZ-20. The new Olympus SZ-20 is astonishingly slender for a digital camera with a large zoom lens. The super-slim design makes the Olympus SZ-20 camera ideal for people who like to travel light but insist on the very best spec. With a backlit CMOS sensor for excellent pictures in low light, 3D photo shooting and Eye-Fi card compatibility, the new Olympus SZ-20 digital camera combines practicality with beauty and sheer imaging power. The new Olympus SZ-20 will be available for an estimated retail price of €219, from March 2011.|
Olympus SZ-20 camera with 12.5x zoom lens
The Super Zoom SZ-Series lives up to its name with the new Olympus SZ-20 offering a 12.5x super wide optical zoom. With this sort of zooming possibilities it becomes easy to take great photos, from the expressive face of a gargoyle high up on a church roof to an emotive movie close-up of battling athletes.
Olympus SZ-20 video in HD
The 1080p Full HD movie feature on the Olympus SZ-20 ensures the best video quality currently available in a compact digital camera. With Full HD, video footage is realistic, smooth, bright and clear. Movies become a fascinating window on real life when viewed on a Full HDTV.
Olympus SZ-20 Image Stabilisation
Providing two-fold dual image stabilisation, this special function helps to avoid image blur caused by camera shake or fast-moving subjects. The dual image stabilisation on the Olympus SZ-20 combines high ISO values with a sensor-based mechanical image stabiliser, where a built-in gyro sensor detects camera movement and adjusts the sensor accordingly.
Olympus SZ-20 3D photo shooting
The Olympus SZ-20 offers a 3D photo mode, which captures two shots of a scene from two different angles to create still pictures that can be viewed with the added excitement and realism of 3D (on a 3D-compatible display). The Olympus SZ-20 offers two 3D settings: Manual and Automatic.
Olympus SZ20 3D settings
In both 3D settings, the Olympus camera indicates when it is time to pan. In Automatic, when the camera is panned horizontally after the first photo, it automatically takes the second shot at the ideal moment. Manual is for 3D experts - the user decides when to take the second shot.
Olympus SZ20 Magic filters
The Olympus SZ-20 camera offers 8 Magic Filters, including the new Sparkle and Watercolour options. Pet Detection mode automatically snaps dog or cat faces just as they look up, while with Smart Panorama, users simply pan from side to side to get a sweeping panorama picture.
