Meet The New Olympus SZ-30MR Digital Camera - SZ-10's Smarter, Cooler, Hunkier Big Brother

"Psst SZ-30MR...Nice Specs!"

Olympus finishes their compact digital camera spring line with a bang after announcing the launch of the SZ-30MR – their newest and final compact digital camera. The SZ-30MR is the smarter, cooler and hunkier big brother of the SZ-10 - the pride and joy of what Olympus calls their “Super Camera.” 

The SZ-30MR has the same style as the SZ-10 but comes packed with every feature you’ve ever seen and liked on a competitor’s camera and even some features you’ve only dreamed about.

With an outstanding 24x wide optical zoom (28-670mm), this state-of-the-art flagship breaks all the rules in the compact category – and it breaks records too (and who doesn't love a bad boy?)- The SZ-30MR is the first camera ever to offer simultaneous recording of 1080p Full HD movies and 16 Megapixel still photos. So with the SZ-30MR, users can shoot in high resolution with different combos of recording modes at once, and then share their shots in the format of their choice. 

For example, as a movie and digital still or a wide-angle shot and a close-up.  The super-slim design makes both SZ models ideal for people who like to travel light but insist on the very best spec. With a backlit CMOS sensor for excellent pictures in low light, 3D photo shooting and Eye-Fi card compatibility, these cameras combine practicality with beauty and sheer imaging power.

Can't remember what the SZ-30MR has to offer? - It says it right in the name 

S is for state-of-the-art

The SZ-30MR is chock full of the smartest technology the compact camera world has to offer, giving users a host of features that make it easy to get creative, transfer movies or photos wirelessly and capture just the shot they want in excellent quality. This camera offers 3D still photo shooting and eight Magic Filters, including the new Sparkle and Watercolour options. Pet Detection mode automatically snaps dog or cat faces just as they look up, while with Smart Panorama, users simply pan from side to side to get a sweeping panorama picture. 

SZ is for Super Zoom
The Super Zoom SZ Series lives up to its name with a 24x wide optical zoom on the SZ-30MR. With this sort of zooming power it’s easy to take exceptional shots, from the expressive face of a gargoyle high up on a church roof to an emotive movie close-up of battling athletes. The pixel-rich 1080p Full HD movie format ensures the best moving picture quality currently available in a compact camera – with breathtaking realism, clarity and colour when users play back on a large Full HD TV. 

MR is for a Multi Recording
The SZ-30MR is the world’s first camera to record 1080p Full HD movie and 16 Megapixel stills at the same time – thanks to an ingenious feature Olympus calls Multi Recording. For anyone who’s ever shot a scene one way, then (when it was too late) wished they’d done everything differently, MR is a must. Dual Engine TruePic III+ image processors give the SZ-30MR the power to record simultaneously in more than one mode, and in a variety of combinations. Users can record two different movies at once: in wide-angle and close-up; Full HD and lower resolution; or original and filtered (using one of the SZ-30MR’s seven Magic Filters for movies). In addition, with the Photo with Movie Clip setting, it’s now possible to capture moving footage before and after taking a single photo. These innovations give users the fun and flexibility of sharing their shots in a variety of media – from full-size prints to video clips for their favorite social media website. Both new models come with wireless Eye-Fi compatibility, so they can upload photos automatically to the Web – no cables required.

A List of the Features:
  • 16 MP
  • 24x (28-670mm) Optical Zoom Lens
