Olympus announced the new STYLUS SP-820UZ iHS, its flagship Ultra Zoom camera that features an impressive 40X optical zoom in a stylish and light body (485g). Thanks to the Super-Resolution Zoom, you can get up to 80x digital zoom magnification.
The 22.4 mm lens (equivalent to 22.4- 896mm on a 35mm camera) offers a super-wide angle which is great for shooting panoramas and urban photography. The camera looks great for high speed video capture, featuring 240 fps HSQVGA video recording alongside 1080p full HD video capture.
Other features includes a 14-Megapixel CMOS sensor, Dual Image Stabilization and Multi-Motion Movie Image Stabilization, enhanced audio recording, 3.0-inch LCD 460K display, and HDMI output.
