Olympus Stylus SZ-16 iHS: 46 facts and highlights

1. megapixels

2. sensor size

The larger the sensor the more light the sensor captures yielding in better image quality.

3. continuous shooting at high resolution

Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.

4. weight

5. 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.

6. longer battery life

CIPA is an independent, standard measurement that determines how many shots a camera can take before the battery dies.

7. video recording

8. fastest shutter speed

A faster maximum shutter speed allows taking pictures of fast moving subjects without blur.

9. pixel density

10. width

11. has a built-in HDR mode

It can automatically shoot pictures with a higher dynamic range (HDR).

17. has built-in optical image stabilization

Optical image stabilization uses gyroscopic sensors to detect the vibrations of the camera. The lens adjusts the optical path accordingly, ensuring that any type of motion blur is corrected before the sensor captures the image.

18. has AF tracking

With AF tracking, once you choose the subject and press the shutter release part way down, as the subject moves, the autofocus will follow it. No more out of focus shots.

20. screen size

The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.

21. has sensor shift stabilization

With sensor shift, the image sensor (rather than the lens) moves to counterbalance any vibration of the camera. This means the image will be stabilised regardless of what lens is being used.

23. has an optical viewfinder

An optical viewfinder (or OVF) allows the photographer to compose a shot while seeing exactly what the lens sees. There is no time lag and they require no power - as opposed to electronic viewfinders which can drain battery life. They are also better in low light situations.

24. has a BSI sensor

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.
