Olympus SZ-12

17 Reasons why Olympus SZ-12 is better

than the average

1.Explicitly faster shooting at highest resolution with AF as JPEG format
10fpsvs 7fps (the average)
vs 60fps (best: Nikon DL18-50)
Fast continuous shooting is useful for catching action shots.
216gvs 376g (the average)
vs 65.5g (best: HTC Re)
68.7mmvs 95.2mm (the average)
vs 26.2mm (best: DxO One)
4.Significantly 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)
6.Has built-in optical image stabilization
Yesvs No (54% don't have it)
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.
7.Can create panoramas in-camera
Yesvs No (64% don't have it)
It allows you to take multiple photos capturing different parts of the scene, and then joins them together into a single photo.
8.A little 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.
9.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.
10.Distinctly less shutter lag
0.2svs 16.3s (the average)
vs 0.00025s (best: Leica M Typ 240)
The amount of time it takes the camera to take a photo, without having to focus.
11.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.
12.Substantially less startup delay
1.9svs 34.8s (the average)
vs 0.01s (best: Nikon D70)
It takes less time for the camera to turn on and take a first picture.
13.Notably greater zoom range
24xvs 12x (the average)
vs 83.3x (best: Nikon Coolpix P900)
The zoom range is the ratio between the longest and shortest focal lengths. A higher zoom range means that the lens is more versatile.
14.Modestly 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.
15.Noticeably longer maximum focal length
600mmvs 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.
16.Appreciably 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.
17.Has 3D photo/video recording capabilities
Yesvs No (90% don't have it)
The device captures 3D still photos and/or 3D videos due to two separate lenses.
