Good specs and fast operation. Too bad the sensor cannot handle any high contrast situations. Too many blown out skies, even when the skies were cloudy. Underexposing would not help much. I have retired this camera..does anyone want to buy it?

Good Points: On the January 6-day Morris Tour I took on average 1 hour and a half of video plus stills each day, which needed 2 charged batteries each day (SZ-30MR the year before needed 3 charged batteries to finish the day). The 5-axis Image Stabilisation on flight and dance videos was highly appreciated. The annual radio club lecturer Gary Bold ZL1AN commented that my video had the best video AND audio quality compared to previous years. Post-processing on videos and stills is less than ...

I wanted it as an upgrade from my SZ-30MR, specifically for video stabilisation and more than 2 stills in each video clip.

Even at full zoom and/or in low light conditions the videos and images have little or no motion blurring compared to the slew of other point and shoot camera that I have owned. A ...

Beautiful form meets ultimate function in this camera and that's no exageration. I have had five digital cameras before this one, including an interchangeable lens micro 4/3rds Olympus that I liked very well. None has had the full features in a convenient size as this one does. The menus are intuative and easy to use, the buttons are comfortably and traditionally located and the anti-shake features are as good as Olympus claims. Best and most important of all the photos look extremely fine ...
