Written by | Gadgets

Olympus, a technology leader in making high-end digital cameras recently announced the new Stylus SP-820UZ iHS (iHS stands for Intelligent, High-Sensitivity and High-Speed) , its flagship Ultra Zoom compact camera that has most powerful optical zoom ever!


With Stylus SP-820UZ iHS, objects can magnify up to 40x, enough to capture and focus on a level of detail and emotion. Its Super-Resolution Zoom can also doubled the focus objects enabling up to 80x magnification! Check out the following specs below:


  • 22.4mm (equivalent to 22.4- 896mm on a 35mm camera) super wide-angle lens
  • 14-Megapixel CMOS sensor with TruePic V image processor
  • 1080p Full HD and High-Speed Video (240fps HSQVGA)
  • Dual Image Stabilization and Multi-Motion Movie Image Stabilization
  • HDMI output and control
  • Audio recording (Linear PCM )
  • Smart Panorama
  • Magic Art Filters
  • Eye-Fi® card compatibility
  • 3.0″ High-Resolution LCD

Like most of the high-end cameras out there in the market, Stylus SP-820UZ iHS is powerful enough to overcome challenging shooting situations such as night and in low-light, where image blur is more likely to occur. Stylus SP-820UZ iHS though has a lower CMOS sensor with only 14-Megapixel compared to the 18-Megapixel of  Canon EOS M which was also recently announced. The Hand-Held Starlight mode captures multiple images and stitches them together into a single, crisp, breathtaking photo without the use of a tripod. Its HDR Backlight Adjustment enables you to capture a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image. The Beauty Make-up mode is a fascinating feature where you will be able to apply everything from eyeliner to eye shadow and blush! And just like the Sony CyberShot WX100, you can enhance your captured images by applying a number of filters such as Pin Hole and Pop Art to make your photo come to life!

Stylus SP-820UZ iHS will be available starting September, 2012. Along with the camera also a Camera Strap, Protective Lens Cap, USB Cable, 4 AA Batteries, Quick Start Guide, Instruction Manual CD, Olympus Viewer Software and a Warranty Card.

It will be available in two colors (Black and Silver) and the estimated price is $329.99 or about Php14,000 only!
