This STYLUS XZ-2 iHS Digital Camera (Black) from Olympus is a compact camera that produces 12MP photos and Full HD 1080p video with its 1/1.7" backside illuminated (BSI) CMOS sensor. It's equipped with a wide-angle-to-telephoto 27-108mm (35mm equivalent) 4x optical zoom lens, with a fast aperture of f/1.8-2.5 for clear, detailed shots in low-light conditions. Using the 3.0" swiveling touchscreen with a 910k-dot resolution, you can compose and shoot photos with the tap of your finger, knowing that the dual image stabilization technology will keep your images clear and sharp.
Olympus' iHS Technology combines the BSI CMOS sensor with the XZ-2's TruePic VI Image Processor to deliver improved image quality, response time, and intelligent functions. Watch as the Track AF easily follows your subject throughout the frame. The camera's Dual image stabilization (IS) technology, a combination of high ISO sensitivity and sensor-shift IS, implements the best settings for any given scene so you don't end up with image blur. The XZ-2 employs a fast and bright f/1.8-2.5 i.ZUIKO lens and high ISO sensitivity up to 6400, both of which enable clear, detailed image capture under low-light conditions.
For more control over your images, the XZ-2 has a built-in mode dial and the ability to shoot images in RAW format. The mode dial allows you to quickly switch as your situation changes without having to navigate camera menus or change individual settings. Shooting RAW images allows you to capture, view and edit uncompressed, detail-rich files using editing software rather than letting the camera do it.
Eleven in-camera art filters give you creative options for your work, while the panorama mode allows you to capture ultra wide-angle vistas by simply shooting three pictures in succession as you slowly sweep the camera across the scene - no tripod required. The built-in accessory port allows you to attach optional flashes, lights, microphones and viewfinders.
