Olympus SZ-31MR iHS

 

Olympus gives the SZ-30 a light update, resulting in a solid but expensive travel-zoom.

Accurate colors; Fast burst mode

Poor sharpness; Annoying handling quirk

The Olympus SZ-31MR iHS is a competent, feature-rich travel-zoom, but too few improvements have been made since the SZ-30 to earn our complete recommendation. Given this model’s problems with sharpness, distortion, and noise reduction, we think $400 is...

Puts the Super in super zoom.

 

I wanted a lightweight super zoom compact for use on expeditions and this has all that I could wish for. The absence of gps is of no worry for me, I would sooner have the increased battery life that comes with not having this power hungry device.

Olympus SZ-31MR review

 

Olympus has packed an incredible amount into this little camera. Top billing goes to the 24x zoom, which puts it in competition with bulky SLR-styled ultra-zoom cameras. Videos are recorded at up to 1080p and 60fps, which is twice the frame rate of...

Not the best for image quality, but it’s packed with impressive features, including simultaneous photo and video capture

Olympus SZ-31MR

 

With its blend of pleasing photos, quality build, compact body and high-res screen, this Olympus is an excellent camera.

Lovely images ; High speed photography ; Relatively compact ; High-res screen

Multi-recording is mostly a gimmick ; Soft details at 10x-plus

With its blend of pleasing photos (at lower zoom levels), quality build, compact body and high-res screen, this Olympus is an excellent camera, although most of the SZ-31MR's multi-record functions are needless gimmicks.

Olympus SZ-31MR

 

The Olympus SZ-MR31 is up against some pretty stiff competition in this category. It appears to be a good camera, but it does not really stand out, especially at the price. It is most likely to appeal to you if you are looking for a camera with extra...
