Olympus SZ-14 Review

Tech2
1 June 2012
  • 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. It is clearly the most affordable travel zoom camera with the maximum zoom range. However, don’t base your decision on this parameter.

Olympus SZ-14 Review

  • 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. The auto white balance is okay for most subjects with only mixed lighting causing some orange-looking colour casts but nothing dramatic so performance here is pretty good overall.
  • 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. Otherwise, the Olympus SZ-14 is delightfully small, which makes the rear 7.6cm LCD screen amazingly large by comparison. It’s also surprisingly light and slim, easily tucked into a shirt pocket.

Olympus SZ-14 Digital Camera Review

  • 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. The other side of the ledger is more about a price that actually represents the SZ-14’s truly great value for its price bracket. So with that in mind, Olympus have done extremely well with the new S-series model.

  • Excerpt: Following on from last Spring’s SZ-20 and SZ-30 models, which boasted 12.5x and 24x optical zooms respectively, the SZ-14 is Olympus’ new ‘Super Zoom’ on the block, the latest addition to what the company is calling its ‘traveller’ series. Unlike the SZ-30 it doesn’t feature a GPS antenna to appeal to those looking for the ultimate holiday/vacation camera perhaps, but it does match its 24x optical reach plus also retails for a very affordable £199.

Olympus SZ-14 review

  • 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. The 24x zoom speaks for itself, but the design is just as welcome, with a metal body and a raised handgrip that fits securely in the hand.

16 April 2012
  • 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. There is no getting away from the fact that picture quality could be better. How much of an issue that will be to you depends on the size of prints you wish to make.
