The SZ-20 Digital Camera (Silver) is an impressive lightweight zoom camera that won't break the bank. The SZ-20 gives you the power of a 12.5x optical zoom, a 24mm wide-angle lens, dual image stabilization, plus a 3D photo mode. Shooting your kid's soccer match or just trying to fit everyone in the group into a single shot, the SZ-20 has the tools you need. It's loaded with plenty of useful features that promote your creativity. Magic Art Filters give you 8 special effects to put creativity into your photos and videos, with options like Punk, Pop Art, Fish Eye and more. A Beauty Mode improves portraits by softening shadows, smoothing out wrinkles and blemishes, and allowing for in-camera edits after the picture is taken.
The SZ-20 also captures video - gorgeous 1080p HD video to be exact. A one-touch button lets you record without having to navigate through menus and the HDMI output and control makes playing back your videos on the big screen (talkin' 'bout your HDTV here) simple. You can also play your video back on the spacious 3.0" LCD monitor.
The SZ-20 has other impressive numbers to offer, including an ISO range of 80-3200, a shutter speed range of 1/2500-4 seconds, and two metering modes: Digital ESP and Spot. The 16MP 1/2.3" CMOS image sensor works together with the True Pic III+ image processor to create beautifully detailed images which look great, even when blown up to poster size.
