Stay away from this camera.

  • Summary: I hate the product. The picture is no where near as good as I hoped. There are small cameras with amazing pictures but this is not it. I don't blame the seller, just the manufacturer.

GREED got to me.

  • Summary: Like the 24x zoom, so got it Bad: No manual control Good: Cheaper than the SZ16 and SZ31 - both also 24x zoom cameras Biggest quibble: The spot-metering doesn't seem as spot-on as the Nikon P310 I know the p310 has a much shorter zoom range But even when I spot-metered across the same lens range, the pictures do not have the kind of highlight/contrast I get with the p310 Also, the p310 has a small circle which you can point at the spots you want to meter The Sz14 doesn't...

Olympus SZ-14

Daz, Amazon

  • Summary: Nice looking well made camera battery is not as bad as some say. The issue I have is when in full zoom mode trying to take a picture is difficult with a moving object, Since I have my hands on both sides trying to steady things its just impossible to take a picture of a moving object like a aircraft, The other issue is with focus it takes ages to correct its focus so im having to go back to default zoom and slowly get to maximum zoom by which time whatever it was has...

poor picture quality

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: I do like it's 24x zoom but if it comes to a picture quality, my samsung galaxy s3 made better pictures in the same weather conditions than this camera. Perhaps android's software enhances the picture quality and my IPS monitor displays those enhancements very well. It happened so many times that now I use the camera only if I need to use a zoom.

dissapointed

  • Summary: I bought this camera a day before i went on a tiger watching holiday in India. perhaps not one of my better ideas. Pictures in bright sunlight are poor and when i zoomed in to focus on the tiger appearing from behind a bush, the camera automatically zoomed back out before i had chance to take the pic you can imagine the frustration! You dont get to see tiger everyday.

A little bit dissapointed

R. Cummings "Royboy", Amazon
5 April 2013
  • Summary: I consider myself to be a keen photographer and use mainly a DSLR camera, but sometimes you just dont want to lug around all that kit. I decided to upgrade my trusty Lumix FS10 and went for the olympus sz-14 the camera came the next day using Amazon prime brilliant,having fully charged the battery i took a total of 60 pictures and a 5 minute video i must say that the video quality was outstanding with the ability to zoom whilst recording.
