Olympus SZ-14 Review

What Digital Camera
12 April 2012
  • Summary: The SZ-14’s image quality is very good overall, you get decent colour capture; natural-looking and not too vibrant while the iESP, (backed up by spot) metering system does a good job of keeping things well exposed or providing a little more control if needed respectively.
  • Pros: Price, 24x optical zoom lens, Compact metal body, Magic filters, Fast high-speed shooting modes, Image quality, In-camera panorama stitching
  • Cons: HD Video recording limited to 720p, Noise at higher ISOs

Olympus SZ-14 Review

  • Excerpt: This review camera dropped out of the box — in bright red! Talk about making a statement! I’m not sure how you all feel about CICs — cameras in colours. It’s not that important to me, except for the benefit of making the control IDs more visible.

Olympus SZ-14 Digital Camera Review

Buy-n-Shoot.com
3 April 2012
  • Conclusion: At $349 it’s actually a tough segment to satisfy. On one side of the ledger you’ve got buyers wanting plenty of options, features that perform and an expectation that $349 of their hard earned must give them a good return.

  • Summary: The 14 megapixel, £199 Olympus SZ-14 comes up trumps for anyone wanting a very affordable big zoom camera that at the same time is compact enough to slip into a trouser or jacket pocket in its dormant state.

  • Summary: The Olympus SZ-14 retails with a 4GB SD card for Rs. 16,990, which is the MRP. Go out in the market and you should be able to buy it for a few hundred rupees less, along with a pouch. Some online shopping websites are selling this camera for less than Rs. 15,000.

  • Excerpt: A big zoom in a slim body makes for a versatile, convenient camera, and Olympus currently holds the record with this 24x zoom model. Its lens and overall shape is shared with the pricier Olympus SZ-31MR , and we're amazed to find these features in a camera that costs just £165.

  • Conclusion: The Olympus SZ-14 is likely to appeal to you if you are looking for lots of lens power without paying out for one of the top of the range cameras in this sector. By dropping some of the more advanced features Olympus have kept the price down.

Pocket Lint
6 April 2012
  • Conclusion: The 14 megapixel, 24x optical zoom Olympus SZ-14 has the double whammy of a broad focal range yet a value-added price tag with which to sell itself, and it largely succeeds on both points.
  • Pros: Broad focal range, relatively compact dimensions, good value pricing, reasonably consistent performance from shot to shot
  • Cons: Scroll wheel at the back is very slippery and it’s hard to arrive at the setting you want without much back and forth, battery life is so-so
