The Olympus Stylus SH-50 is an iHS Digital Camera which costs between $300 and $350. It has a 24x Optical Zoom as well as a 3-Inch LCD screen. You can get it in color black. This product is noted for its amazing image quality which is created using a 3-Axis image stabilization format together with the standard 24x wide-angle zoom facility. In some ways this product is is a pioneer because it is the first to include a 5-Axis video stabilization facility within what can be described as a compact camera. You also get 1080P full HD video recording specifications. The manual code allows you to get even more control when you are working with the product. The touchscreen is particularly responsive. Likewise the tele-macro brings new experiences to your recording activity. The live guide is there to keep you grounded.

Olympus Stylus SH-50MR Product Specifications

The Olympus Stylus SH-50MR weighs 7.8oz and is ensconced within the following dimensions: 1.7” by 4.4” by 2.5”. That works out at an effective shipping weight of 1lbs. The advanced video recording features mean that this camera can always produce spectacular imagery regardless of the user’s practical experience in this type of work. In that way this camera can work equally well for amateurs and professionals. The 24x wide-angle optical zoom lens is equivalent to 25-600mm. That means that close action is not out of bounds when capturing images. In fact this is an area where many manufacturers have gone wrong because they do not seem to product workable technology without complicating things.

The low light performance specification for the Olympus Stylus SH-50MR is a testament to the fact that this product was made for use rather than show. There is nothing that is not maximized and whose usage is not optimized when constructing the camera. The use of iHS technology is an inspired choice. Likewise the 5-axis video stabilization adds new levels of sophistication to a product that is already in the premium category by all standards. Other people might be equally impressed by the Enhanced Intelligent Auto or iAUTO mode which gives the user an option to create realistic images. The High Speed Sequential Shooting feature allows you to capture up to 10 frames per second and the best thing is that they are always in full resolution. The Live Guide allows you to change tone and color so as to improve the appearance of the image as it is being captured and stored.

The performance statistics of the Olympus Stylus SH-50MR do not come about as a coincidence. They are a consequence of its technological prowess including features such as the DSLR-quality Image Processor and the BSI CMOS sensor. All these come together to create an unforgettable shooting experience which will have you playing with the camera time and again. It is a testament to the resourcefulness of the Olympus brand.

Although it is not at the top of the entire chain, the Olympus Stylus SH-50MR makes its mark with emphasis on technology. This is a product that you should definitely consider if you are buying a digital camera in 2013.
