Marketing Information

Vivid movies and close-ups bring memories of holidays and other trips to life. That's why the latest star of Olympus' compact SZ 'Super Zoom' Series comes with Multi-motion Movie Image Stabilisation (Movie IS) and a massive 24x wide optical zoom lens (25-600mm*). With this powerful new compact, you can zoom right in to shoot close-ups without capturing your own shadow or disturbing your subject. Cutting-edge Multi-motion Movie IS complements it's High Definition Movie capability by reducing blur. It delivers HD movies that are crisp and vivid, even when you're filming moving subjects while walking yourself, for example on the beach with friends and family. With a host of creative Magic Filters you can add a whole range of special effects to your images directly on-camera. The SZ-14 even offers the new Fragmented filter.
