Digital Cameras Buyers' Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

The SZ-31MR is an extraordinary compact. Together with its outstanding 24x wide optical zoom lens (25-600mm), new iHS technologies give it the power and versatility to capture movies and stills in superb blur-free quality, often at the same time.

iHS draws on Olympus’ 16-Megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and two separate TruePic V image processors (originally developed for D-SLR cameras) to dramatically improve low-light performance, speed up camera response and enhance scene and subject recognition.
