In addition to the launch of the rather interesting OM1-like EM-5, Olympus Australia also announced three new digicams, the SZ-31MR, the SH-25MR and the TG-820.
The SZ-31MR is a new flagship model in the Traveller series and features a 24x wide angle zoom lens (25-600mm in 35mm format), 16 megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, ‘multi-recording’ capability, touch-screen control and new Intelligent High Speed/High Sensitivity technology (iHS). Response times in the new camera have been improved, enabling high-frame rate burst shooting at up to 60fps for stills or 240fps for video.
The SH-25MR is a super-slim camera with a 12.5x wide angle zoom lens, 16 megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, built-in GPS, Electronic Compass, Multi-Recording capability, touch-screen control and new Intelligent High Speed/High Sensitivity technology (iHS). Both cameras feature two TruePic V image processors that work in tandem, enabling the camera to capture two image data streams simultaneously to support simultaneous capture of stills and video recording.
The new Olympus Tough TG-820 features quicker response and focusing. It’s equipped with a 12-megapixel BSI-CMOS sensor, new generation TruePic VI image processor, and new iHS technology, and is waterproof to 10 metres, shockproof to two metres, freeze-proof, crushproof and dustproof. It has a reinforced 3-inch LCD with 1.03 million dot resolution and includes Full HD video recording. ISO ranges from 100 to 6400.
