Olympus SH-50 iHS vs Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40

Top Ten Reasons for the

Olympus SH-50 iHS

Compared to Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ40

anonymous
44
Sizably faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
11.5 fps
vs
10 fps
15% faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format. Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
anonymous
41
Significantly higher maximum light sensitivity
12400 ISO
vs
6400 ISO
1.94x higher maximum light sensitivity. With a higher light sensitivity (ISO level), the sensor absorbs more light. This can be used to capture moving objects using a fast shutter speed, or to take images in low light without using a flash.
anonymous
37
Marginally more battery power
1270 mAh
vs
1250 mAh
1.60% more battery power
anonymous
32
Has a BSI sensor
Yes
vs
No
A BSI (backside illuminated) sensor is a camera image sensor which captures better quality images in poor lighting conditions, and offers better overall sharpness and image quality.
anonymous
32
Explicitly greater zoom range
24 x
vs
20 x
4 x greater zoom range. The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
anonymous
30
Wider aperture at minimum focal length
3
vs
3.3
Wider aperture at minimum focal length. This is the widest aperture available at the minimum focal length. With a wider aperture the sensor can capture more light, helping to avoid blur by enabling a faster shutter speed. It also provides a shallow depth of field, allowing you to blur the background to focus attention on the subject.

28
Has manual exposure
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the exposure.
anonymous
28
Has manual shutter speed
Yes
vs
No
This allows to manually set the shutter speed.
anonymous
28
Sizably longer maximum focal length
600 mm
vs
480 mm
120 mm longer maximum focal length. A longer maximum focal length allows you to focus in on a small part of a scene, and offers a narrower angle of view than shorter focal lengths.
anonymous
26
Has an accelerometer
Yes
vs
No
An accelerometer is a sensor used to measure the linear acceleration of a device. A common application is detecting when a device changes from a vertical to a horizontal position.

31
Has GPS
Yes
vs
No
GPS enables global positioning, useful in map, geo-tagging or navigation apps.
anonymous
30
Has continuous autofocus when recording movies
Yes
vs
No
When recording movies they stay focussed and sharp.
anonymous
30
Shorter minimum focal length
24 mm
vs
25 mm
1 mm shorter minimum focal length. A shorter minimum focal length allows you to get more of the scene in the photo, and offers a wider angle of view than longer focal lengths.
anonymous
29
Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yes
vs
No
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
anonymous
28
Significantly less body volume
176.69 cm³
vs
301.82 cm³
1.71x less body volume
anonymous
27
Appreciably longer exposure time
30 s
vs
15 s
15 s longer exposure time. When the camera shutter is open for a long time, more light is absorbed by the sensor. You can use this slow shutter speed to produce vivid night time photography, or capture the trajectory of moving objects such as motorway traffic.
