Conclusion: After taking the XZ-10 out for a spin, the SH-50 comes across as a breath of fresh air. There is very little to complain about as far as features and ease of use is concerned, as it manages that quite well. However, the touchscreen continues to be a sour spot even now, and like all point and shoots this one also oversaturates colours, which is fine for sharing on the web.
Pros: Ultra Slow-mo video capture; Decent low-light shots; 24X optical zoom with IS.
Cons: Wi-Fi support only via Eye-Fi cards; Macro images lack detail; Over-saturtation of images.
Excerpt: We always like products that do something different, but we rate them for quality rather than novelty value. That's why it's a particular treat to find a camera that stands out from the crowd in ways that are genuinely useful, which the Olympus Stylus SH-50 does. The first thing to note is the enormous 24x zoom.
Excerpt: The Olympus SH-50 was announced at CES in January 2013. It has a 24x optical zoom lens and multiple-axis image stabilisation for both images and videos. It is available in black, silver and white for £249.99.
Pros: Full 1080p HD video recording, 3cm close focusing distance is good for macro shots, Excellent image stabilisation, Full manual controls, 11 fps continuous shooting, Solid, well-built metal body, Screen has an excellent resolution, Good detail in panoramas
Cons: No RAW shooting, No built-in Wi-Fi, Images are soft in the corners
Excerpt: For 2500 kroner får du et, efter vores mening, meget lækkert og gennemført kamera, der er meget ”ærligt”. Det basale er på plads: En lille programvælgerknap, en udløserknap med indbygget zoomknap. Få knapper bagpå og et godt, stort LCD-display. Der er også en blitz, som popper op, når det er nødvendigt, og det betyder, at designet er helt rent og kun har et lille håndgreb og et objektiv, som stikker frem.
