Olympus SZ-30 overview

  • 1Description

The Olympus SZ-30MR Digital Camera boasts an array of features from a 16Mp CMOS sensor to 1080p HD video to 3D photo capture, and then some. In addition to the impressive resolution, Olympus gave the SZ-30MR a number of helpful functions that give you real flexibility when shooting. Let's start with the basics.

The camera has a 24x optical zoom for high-quality close-ups of your subjects, a generous 3.0" LCD display for composition and playback, and the TruePic III+ image processor for quick processing of files, just for starters. The 30MR also has an ISO up to 3200, Dual Image Stabilization, and various other settings, including exposure metering selections, a wide choice of shutter speeds, and white balance controls.

The SZ-30MR, along with taking 16Mp still images and 1080p HD video, gives you the option of capturing both at once with a feature Olympus calls multi-recording. No matter what you're documenting, however, all of your files can be stored to SD/SDHC or SDXC memory cards. The camera is even Wi-Fi compatible when using an Eye-Fi card. That means you can email or upload images straight from the SZ-30MR when using an optional Eye-Fi card.

Other useful features include Smart Panorama, which as the name implies, captures panoramic shots, Magic Art Filter which give your photos and movies a fun and creative feel, and the 3D photo mode which gives your images an eye-popping effect, by combining two pictures. Additional features include AF tracking and face detection.

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

3.0" LCD Display
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 Movie and HDMI Control

Magic Filter Still and Movie
Add style and artistic flair to stills and movies with Olympus' Magic Art Filters.

3D Photos

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
