Olympus SZ-11

10 Reasons why Olympus SZ-11 is better

than the average

216gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
68.7mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
3.Measurably less body volume
289cm³vs 531cm³ (the average)
vs 65.29cm³ (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
39.5mmvs 50.8mm (the average)
vs 13mm (best: Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX55)
5.A bit bigger screen size
3"vs 3" (the average)
vs 4.8" (best: Samsung Galaxy Camera (Wi-Fi))
The bigger the screen size is, the better the user experience.
6.Has sensor shift stabilization
Yesvs No (83% don't have it)
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.
7.Has an optical viewfinder
Yesvs No (71% don't have it)
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.
8.Marginally wider aperture at minimum focal length
3vs 3 (the average)
vs 1 (best: Leica Q (Typ 116))
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.
9.Clearly longer maximum focal length
500mmvs 273mm (the average)
vs 2000mm (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
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.
10.Notably shorter minimum focal length
25mmvs 27mm (the average)
vs 1.18mm (best: HP Photosmart R937)
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.
