Olympus SZ-30MR announcement clippings

With a jaw-dropping 24x wide optical zoom (25-600mm), the state-of-the-art SZ-30MR flagship breaks all the rules in the compact category. And it breaks records too. It's the first camera ever to offer simultaneous recording of beautiful 1080p Full HD movies and 16 Megapixel still photos. Thanks to Olympus' ingenious Multi Recording (MR) feature, you can shoot in high resolution with different combinations of recording modes all at the same time, then share your shots in the best format for different media. If you've ever shot a scene one way, then (when it was too late) wished you'd done everything differently, you'll appreciate how useful MR can be. For example, with the Photo with Movie Clip setting you can capture moving footage before and after taking a single photo, so you can post a video clip on a social media site and create a full-size print of the same scene. You can also record two different movies at once - in wide-angle and close-up; Full HD and lower resolution; or original and filtered (using one of the SZ-30MR's seven Magic Filters for movies). In addition to MR, the SZ-30MR lives up to the Super Zoom name with incredible zooming power, making it easy to take exceptional shots, from the expressive face of a gargoyle high up on a church roof to an emotive movie close-up of battling athletes. And as the series flagship, it's packed with the full range of SZ technical wizardry, from a backlit CMOS sensor (ideal for shooting in low light) to 3D photo shooting, Smart Panorama and wireless Eye-Fi card compatibility.
