While it doesn't offer the longest zoom out of all the travel cameras, the SH-25MR brings a great touchscreen and enough shooting options to satisfy most users.

Able to take full-resolution stills during video capture ; Well made and easy to use ; Great range of art filters ; Extensive range of in-camera options

Images look fuzzy at full magnification ; No manual exposure controls

Olympus SH-25MR Review

 

Olympus' SH-25MR is another digital camera aimed at the ‘traveller-class' according to the makers, designed to offer a balance between budget and shooting kit. Does it achieve this balance?

Zoom range, High-speed shooting, Touch screen AF. GPS and Compass system, Battery life, Colour capture performance, Low ISO image quality

Grip needs a rubberised, grippier surface, Soft images at corners and image edges, Skin tones in portraits, Odd flash control, Display visibility in bright conditions
