Overview
  • 1Description

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.

16 Megapixel
An amazing 16 million pixels in the high sensitivity CMOS sensor gains better image quality with less noise for improved image detail, especially in low-light situations.
12.5X Super Wide-Angle Optical Zoom (24-300mm Equivalent)
The 12.5x zoom lets you get incredibly close to your subject while the 24mm wide-angle lens lets you zoom out for panoramas, group shots and portraitures.
3.0 Inch LCD
This huge 3" LCD features an extra-wide viewing angle and anti-glare technology for easier composing and shooting even in direct, bright sunlight.
1080p HD Video with HDMI Output and Control
The high-resolution 1080p HD movie capability allows you to capture high-quality full HD video for viewing on your HDTV.
Dual Image Stabilization
Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation
3D Photos
Discover the depth of 3D stills. From macro shots to landscapes, Olympus' 3D technology shoots two pictures and combines them into one image for a dramatic effect when viewed on a 3D device. Perfect for bringing your memories to life.

No need for cables or even a computer. Upload or email images directly from your camera with an optional Eye-Fi card.
Smart Panorama
Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remembered them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene.
AF Tracking
AF Tracking automatically tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects such as kids and pets, and continuously adjusts the focus and brightness so you can capture these photogenic whirlwinds with ease.
Face Detection
Face Detection automatically focuses on your subjects' faces and optimizes exposure for sharp, brilliant portrait pictures.
Beauty Mode
Beauty Mode lets you smooth a person's skin, removing unwanted wrinkles or blemishes. Additionally, make subtle edits, such as slightly emphasizing and brightening the eyes, with the post-capture feature: Beauty Fix.
Magic Art Filters - Still and Movie
Add style and artistic flair to stills and movies with Olympus' Magic Art Filters. Joining Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, and Soft Focus are the new Punk, which creates a two tone image with a classic punk rock feel, Watercolor, which transforms images into frame-worthy paintings, and Sparkle, which adds a twinkle to your photos. (Effects vary by model)
