    • Ultra-wide optical zoom lenses
    A compact as cute as the SZ-15 really has no right to a 24x super wide optical zoom lens. Most cameras of this size just can't find room for that sort of magnifying power, let alone the flexibility to shoot in 16-megapixel quality at super-wide angles. And they certainly don't have space for super-resolution zoom, which doubles still photo magnification to 48x with none of the pixilation that usually makes digital zooms so ineffective. One of the reasons to get a camera with this sort of magnifying capability is to capture macros with those eye-popping colors and details that mostly go unseen. But macro shooting isn't always easy. If you get too close, the camera casts a shadow. Or you startle tiny creatures and before you get the shot. That's why the SZ-15 has telephoto macro. This clever feature lets you shoot macros up to 40 cm from your subject - with all the power of a 600 mm telephoto (35 mm equivalent). And in case you're worried about blur, don't be. Dual image stabilization takes care of that. For getting creative on-camera, the SZ-15 gives you 11 magic filters. Plus a great canvas: HD movies or stills captured close-up. And blur-free.

    Product Features

    • 24x wide optical zoom and 48x with super resolution
      Compact and lightweight, the 24x optical zoom has an impressive focal length range of 25-600 mm, giving you superb flexibility. With super resolution zoom you can double zooming power to 48x and get exceptionally close to far-away subjects without any remarkable loss of image quality.
    • 16-megapixel CCD sensor for high quality
      Engineered to produce an image resolution of 16-megapixels so you can reproduce your stills in large, high-quality formats and use digital zoom to crop photos to the perfect size.
    • HD movies AVI motion JPEG
      Dual image stabilization combines sensor-shift image stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds, so you can capture crisp, clear images, even if the subject is moving.
    • Get close up - even far away
      Complementing the ultra-powerful 24x zoom, the SZ-15 lens lets you zoom in on detail and get as close as 40 cm to your subject without disturbing it - for amazing, blur-free macro shots.
    • Truepic processor
      This powerful image processor forms a part of the in-built iHS technologies dedicated to high overall image quality. Not only does it offer image processing capabilities with high resolution while maintaining high-level color reproduction. It also provides improved color controllability in specific colors such as emerald green and yellow. The image processing speed are also increased, along with startup and shooting speeds.
    • Super-resolution zoom
      Unlike normal digital zooms, which trade off image resolution and sharpness against zooming power, Olympus' super- resolution zoom digitally extends the range of the optical zoom. For example, it can boost a 12.5x optical zoom to 25x without any noticeable loss of image quality.
    • 3" display
      Olympus 3" displays are the first choice for easy framing, reviewing and sharing of photos and movies. The imaging power of these monitors is characterized by vivid color reproduction and high levels of contrast with improved resolution up to 1030k dots and great technologies like OLED for even further improved viewing and framing possibilities.
    • Face Detection technology
      A technology that searches for faces in a composition and recognizes them as the main subject. It then automatically puts them in focus and optimally adjusts exposure to create an image that's sharp in the right places and ideally exposed. Available for photos and videos, Advanced Face Detection technology can detect up to 8 faces.
    • AF tracking
      This system tracks a moving subject automatically and keeps it continuously in focus for optimally exposed pictures. It even memorizes the subject when it goes out of frame and resumes tracking when it reappears.
    • Beauty make-up mode
      Apply different facial effects to the people's faces in your photos, almost instantly, before even taking their picture. Choose from 18 different effects including eyeliner, lipstick, eye brightening, cheek lift and soft focus. Up to three different faces, for each photo, can have facial effects.
    • Dual image stabilization
      Providing two-fold protection, this special function helps to avoid image blur caused by camera shake. It combines high ISO values with a sensor- or lens based mechanical image stabilizer, where a built-in sensor detects camera movement and adjusts the image sensor or lens accordingly.
    • Ultra-wide optical zoom lenses
      Compact and portable, yet extremely powerful, Olympus zooms in up to 40x for extremely dramatic close-ups and backs out for sweeping wide-angle panoramas. Wide-angle lenses from 24 mm to 28 mm combine incredible tele-zoom performances of up to 896 mm without any digital zoom effects.
