Marketing Information
A compact as cute as the SZ-15 really has no right to a 24x super wide optical zoom lens. Most cameras of this size just can't find room for that sort of magnifying power, let alone the flexibility to shoot in 16-Megapixel quality at super-wide angles. And they certainly don't have space for Super-resolution Zoom, which doubles still photo magnification to 48x with none of the pixilation that usually makes digital zooms so ineffective. One of the reasons to get a camera with this sort of magnifying capability is to capture macros with those eye-popping colours and details that mostly go unseen. But macro shooting isn't always easy. If you get too close, the camera casts a shadow. Or you startle tiny creatures and before you get the shot. That's why the SZ-15 has Telephoto Macro. This clever feature lets you shoot macros up to 40cm from your subject - with all the power of a 600mm telephoto (35mm equivalent). And in case you're worried about blur, don't be. Dual Image Stabilisation takes care of that. For getting creative on-camera, the SZ-15 gives you 11 Magic Filters. Plus a great canvas: HD movies or stills captured close-up. And blur-free.
