Olympus SZ-14

CNET
24 May 2012
  • Summary: The SZ-14 represents great value for money for a camera with so long a zoom. Image quality is good, colours are bright and the build quality and menus are excellent. The panorama mode is a little fiddly, but otherwise it's a good job well done.
  • Cons: 720p maximum video resolution; Some minor noise and fringing on images; Fiddly panorama mode.

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. 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.

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.

Olympus SZ-14 review

Pocket Lint
6 April 2012
  • Excerpt: The travel zoom compact is still proving popular and Olympus is building a raft of small-bodied, big-zoom, low-cost cameras for 2012. Setting sail in the wake of the SP-620UZ ‘Ultra Zoom’ we reviewed a few weeks back (16 megapixels and 21x optical zoom) comes the more slender SZ-14 ‘Super Zoom’.
  • 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
