Summary: The SZ-12 also features a 14-megapixel CCD image sensor capable of recording 720p HD video and high-speed sequential shooting at various resolutions. Ten Magic Filters are built-in to spruce up even the blandest still image and thanks to the camera's built in Eye-Fi capabilities, loading your images and videos to your computer and/or social networking media sites is a snap with an optional Eye-Fi SD card.
Pros: Powerful 24x (25mm - 600mm) zoom lens, Dedicated movie record button, Accurate exposures, Records high-definition video, Zoom operates during video recording, Fast high-speed burst modes, Controls are small but well placed, Sensor-shift anti-shake, Helpful guide system with dedicated button
Cons: Auto focus could be better, Photos in low light tend to be blurry, Thumb wheel navigation can be clumsy, Slow burst mode at full resolution
Conclusion: At just under $200, the compact Olympus SZ-12 is an excellent value. Its 24x lens can capture wide landscapes and distant objects, but it doesn't perform as quickly or as well in low light as more-expensive superzooms.
Pros: Inexpensive. Long zoom range. Compact design. Useful Help mode.
Cons: Plastic body. So-so high ISO performance. Unimpressive shot to shot time. Video captured limited to 720p.
