20 September 2011
  • Summary: However, it has just enough quirks -- and a high enough price of just under $400 -- that I have a tough time giving it the highest possible rating. It just isn't going to be the perfect camera for everyone.

Olympus SZ-30MR Review

What Digital Camera
23 June 2011
  • Summary: On first look, images produced with the SZ-30MR appear generally good, if not a little flat. However, on closer inspection several flaws are revealed. Highlights have a tendency to blow out, whilst over sharpening is also present, combined with a softening towards the edges of the frame.
  • Pros: New MR technology is genuinely useful, large focal range is handy, body feels comfortable in the hand
  • Cons: Image quality is generally fairly average, general look won't be to everyone's taste

  • Summary: The Olympus SZ-30MR sells in India at a price of Rs. 22,000. The camera is a great when it comes to the design and build quality. It does pretty well in outdoor performance, too. Its compact size allows one to carry it around more easily, as compared to DSLRs or superzooms.

Olympus SZ-30MR review

  • Excerpt: It's strangely heartening to have our pessimistic preconceptions proved wrong. We regularly complain about the excessively high megapixel ratings of modern compact cameras, which add little more detail and lots more noise to photos. This year's move from 14- to 16-megapixels made our hearts sink.

  • Summary: In a sea of me-too compacts, the Olympus SZ-30MR stands out in more ways than one. Packing a 25-600mm equivalent zoom lens in a body that can be shoved into a front jeans pocket is a remarkable achievement in its own right, but the Olympus SZ-30MR doesn't stop there.

  • Conclusion: The Olympus SZ-30MR is a capable point and shoot camera, offering simple operation for the basic shooting modes that offer the best results. On the whole, iAuto is effective, returning great results with little tinkering, ideal for casual holiday photos and the like.
  • Pros: Huge lens in compact body, great quality video, simple to operate
  • Cons: Battery life isn't great, lacks fine detail in shots, controls easily knocked to different mode, multi recording features don't really get us excited

28 December 2012
  • Excerpt: L'atout du SZ-30 MR est indéniablement son zoom impressionnant (et encore plus pour un compact!) : un équivalent 25 - 600mm soit x24. Et l'ouverture n'a pas été trop sacrifiée à ce range impressionant puisque l'ouverture glissante est de f3 - 6.9.
  • Pros: Compacité - Puissance du zoom, Fonctionnalités MR
  • Cons: Lissage en haute sensibilité pour lutter contre le bruit, Un écran arrière manquant de lisibilité, Faiblesse en grand angle
