A Compact PEN: Olympus Stylus SH-2 Hands-on
Olympus Stylus SH-2 hands-on
The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a compact long-zoom camera that bears a remarkable resemblance to the company's PEN series of mirrorless cameras. While it takes some design cues from the PEN models and also offers 5-axis image stabilization, the similarities end there, as the SH-2 is very much a point-and-shoot camera.
It features a 16MP, 1/2.3" BSI CMOS sensor, 24-600m equivalent lens, 5-axis image stabilization, 1080/60p video, and built-in Wi-Fi.
The SH-2 replaces the Stylus SH-1, which was introduced less than a year ago. New features include Raw support, nightscape and time-lapse movie modes, and a 'live composite' feature, which is designed for capturing star trails, fireworks, or any type of photograph that benefits from long exposure techniques.
The Stylus SH-2 is priced at $399 in the US.
