Olympus Stylus SH-2

 

The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a stylish compact camera with a 24x zoom. It's a solid performer when shooting Raw, but its JPG output is disappointing.

Sharp lens. Raw capture support. 24x zoom range. Excellent build quality. 5-axis image stabilization. Touch-screen LCD. Photo Story and Art Filter modes. 10.4fps burst shooting. Snappy focus. 1080p60 video. Wi-Fi.

Waxy JPG output. Doesn't include external battery charger.

Performance and Conclusions The SH-2 is quick to start and shoot for a superzoom, requiring just about 1.6 seconds to do so. Its focus speed is minimal at the wide angle, locking on to targets and firing a photo in less than 0.05-second. It does slow a...

Olympus SH-2 Review

 

The Olympus SH-2 is a raw-capable compact camera with a 16-megapixel imager and 24x optical zoom. Other highlights include a highly effective 5-axis image stabiliser, a brand new Nightscape Mode, 11.5fps continuous shooting, 120/240fps high-speed...

Back in 2014 when we reviewed the Olympus Stylus SH-1, we really wanted to like that camera. After all, it was a beautifully crafted product with a great feature set, responsive operation and a versatile lens. However, we were somewhat let down by its...

Olympus SH-2 Review

 

In early 2014, Olympus brought its much-praised five-axis image stabilization system to a fixed-lens, compact camera body for the first time with the Stylus SH-1 long-zoom digital camera. A year later, it follows up with the Olympus SH-2, a...

Available from April 2015, the Olympus SH-2 ships in black or silver versions, but unlike the earlier camera, there's no longer a white option available. List pricing is unchanged from that of the SH-1: The Olympus SH-2 will carry a US$400 list when it...

Olympus SH-2 review

 

With raw shooting, a long zoom, manual control and a host of fun features, the SH-2 could be the perfect travel camera

Touchscreen ; Inbuilt Wi-Fi ; Raw format shooting

Fixed screen ; No shutter-priority or aperture-priority modes ; Only two aperture settings in Manual

Overall a nice, fun and pretty capable camera. It's by no means perfect, but if you're looking for something stylish and a little bit quirky for your next holiday, it's worth taking a look. The Olympus SH-2 should find fans amongst those who like the...

This 24x zoom camera from Olympus is made for the night

 

Photographers of nighttime skies and the poorly lit, Olympus has a new compact camera for you.

Look for the Olympus Stylus SH-2 in April for $399.99. Pricing and availability wasn't available for UK and Australia, but the price converts to roughly £265 and AU$525.

Olympus Stylus SH-2 Review

 

Reviewed, the Olympus Stylus SH-2 a compact camera with a 24x optical zoom lens, and classic styling, but with modern features like built in Wi-Fi and a 3inch touch screen.

Good colour reproduction ; 2 year warranty ; Dual axis electronic level ; Good battery life ; Effective 5-axis image stabilisation system ; 3inch touch-screen ; Built in Wi-Fi ; Live composite shooting ; Super macro mode

Image quality at the telephoto end disappointing ; Competitors offer more zoom in similar size ; Noise reduces image quality

The Olympus Stylus SH-2 will appeal to those people who are looking for a travel camera that looks more interesting than the usual rectangular black box. The camera has a 3inch touch-screen which should appeal, and the built-in Wi-Fi means you can...

great little camera

 

Olympus Stylus SH-2 has exceeded my expectations. It is very intuitive to use. Love the styling which is like a 35m Olympus film camera I used to have. Very light, which is exactly what I need for taking on walks/cycle rides. Zoom is good for wildlife....
