Olympus SZ-10 Review

 

The Olympus SZ-10 is a pocketable 14-megapixel travelzoom camera offering 18x optical zoom, mechanical image stabilisation, HD movie capture, in-camera panorama stitching and a range of “Magic Filters”. Like a number of other recent compact cameras...

Olympus SZ-10 Review

 

And on they come! Compact maxi zoom digicams.

This one has an 18x optical zoom, equating to a 28-504mm lens as 35 SLR equivalent, As I've said before, try to fit out a DSLR with an 18x zoom and you hit a brick wall!

Not as good as described

 

I bought the Olympus SZ-10 to replace a damaged camera. However, I was surprised about the quality of camera I received. Although the camera is solid and compact, the quality of the pictures is way below what I would expect from a 14 mp camera. The...
