Olympus SP-820UZ iHS Digital Camera (Black)

Olympus SP-820uz IHS Digital Camera Features:

  • Power. Performance. Portability.
    From the plains to the mountains, the stadiums to the backyard, the SP-820UZ iHS is the ideal camera for all your photography needs. With a staggering 40x optical zoom you can get incredibly close to your subjects, while the 22.4mm - 896mm ultra wide-angle lens lets you capture breathtaking panoramas and group shots. And thanks to iHS Technology, you'll be able to capture Full HD Video in 1080p, spectacular low light images and fast action subjects. Whether you're taking in a game or quietly snapping images of wildlife from afar, the SP-820UZ packs all the versatility you need to capture your stories.

  • 40x, 22.3 Ultra Wide-Angle Optical Zoom Lens
    Get into range with this staggering 40x optical zoom - Olympus' longest optical zoom to date. It propels you into the action when you can't get closer, like at a concert or a sports arena, and it's perfect for snapping skittish wildlife.

  • iHS Technology, 14MP CMOS Sensor & TruePic V Image Processor
    A powerful, DSLR-quality TruePic V Image Processor and a CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and Super-Resolution Zoom. It's Intelligent. It's High Speed. It's High Sensitivity. It's iHS.

  • Full HD Video with HDMI and Multi-Motion Movie IS
    A simple, one-touch button allows you to record videos with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera. Thanks to the newly-developed Multi-Motion Movie Image Stabilization that minimizes blur caused by large and small movements alike such as walking, breathing or panning across your subject matter, you'll get clear, smooth videos. And with Linear PCM recording, the same technology used in Olympus's professional voice recorders, your HD Videos will be accompanied by higher-than-CD quality audio. HDMI output and control makes playing back videos on your HDTV a breeze. Want high speed recording for slow motion playback? The SP-820 is equipped with HSQVGA recording up to 240 frames per second.

  • High-Speed Sequential Shooting
    Shoot like a pro. With 3 fps high-speed burst shooting at full resolution, nail the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence at the touch of a button. Still afraid you'll miss the moment? At 3MP, the frame rate increases to an astounding 30 shots per second. You'll have so many great shots, you won't be able to share just one.

  • Hand-Held Starlight
    Shoot like a pro. With 3 fps high-speed burst shooting at full resolution, nail the perfect shot by taking a quick sequence at the touch of a button. Still afraid you'll miss the moment? At 3MP, the frame rate increases to an astounding 30 shots per second. You'll have so many great shots, you won't be able to share just one.

  • Smart Panorama
    Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!

  • HDR Backlight
    Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.

  • iAUTO
    Automatically identifies the scene you're shooting—up to 30 different scene including Portrait, Landscape, Night + Portrait, Macro or Sports—and adjusts the settings for ideal results.

  • Dual Image Stabilization
    Dual Image Stabilization combines Sensor-Shift Image Stabilization with high ISO sensitivity and fast shutter speeds to capture crisp, clear images in any situation.

  • Magic Art Filters (Still & Movie)
    Express your creativity with 12 special effects for your photos & HD Videos. Olympus' Magic Art Filters infuse familiar scenes with new and unexpected moods ranging from the exciting to the serene and from the whimsical to the mysterious. Choose from Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, Soft Focus, Punk, Watercolor, Miniature, Reflection, Sparkle, Fragmented, and Dramatic. (Effects may reduce image size. Not all effects are compatible with video recording.)

  • Beauty Mode
    Look like a star! Let the camera soften shadows and smooth wrinkles and blemishes on your subject's face with Beauty Mode. Or, digitally apply enhancements to your portraits like eyeshadow, whitening teeth and lifting cheek bones with Beauty Make-Up mode.

  • 3.0 Inch High-Resolution LCD
    The huge 3.0 inch LCD features an extra-wide viewing angle for easier composing and shooting, and perfect for watching the high-definition movies you capture.

  • Photo With Video Clip
    Catch all the action before and after your shot! When the Photo with Video Clip mode is enabled on the dial, the camera automatically captures a short video before and after the shutter button is released.

    This is a great camera for the wanna be photographer. Great zoom. Great stability. Great color. If you mess around with all of the features, it can be a little overwhelming.
