Care Plan
from £1.50 per month


Care Plan for Digital Cameras

A Care Plan protects your digital camera if it develops a fault or breaks down, even as the result of a mishap.

There are two ways to pay for your plan - monthly or fixed term. Paying monthly means you’ll only pay a small amount each month for as long as you want, whereas paying a fixed term is ideal if you just want to pay once and know your product is protected from then on.

Please note, customers selecting a monthly Care Plan will have the payment debited from their chosen card every month

Product details

With a sophisticated design, powerful zoom capability and advanced shooting features, the Olympus SH-1 Superzoom Compact Digital Camera delivers a refined shooting experience with endless creativity and exceptional image quality.

Intelligent shooting

At the heart of this mighty compact camera sits an amazing 16-megapixel high sensitivity CMOS image sensor that produces optimal image quality with less noise, even in low light situations. Enjoy impressive low-light photography and appreciate a cleaner and superior result across all scenes.

The SH-1 camera is built with a 5-axis image stabilisation system for stills and videos. The IS system effectively counteracts camera shake, ensuring your photos are crisp and blur-free from any distance.

Wide-angle optics

The muscular 24x optical zoom range gets you right up close to the action while the wide-angle lens fits more into the frame, making for great group shots and inspiring landscapes.

You can double the zoom range for an even closer shooting experience with the 48x Super Resolution Zoom, combining both optical and digital zooming for improved image quality.

Creative control

The Olympus SH-1 Superzoom can deliver a rapid burst of images at 11 frames per second; this can be extended to 99 at the expense of image detail. With a fast continuous shooting performance you can grab that perfect moment of that split-second moment.

Enjoy even more creative shooting with Backlight HDR, Panorama and Hand-Held Starlight mode which gives you sharp night scenes without the need of a tripod.

A Photo Story mode creates photo montages directly in the camera for a more exciting playback.

Built-in WiFi

Integrated WiFi lets you get more from your digital lifestyle. Download the free Olympus Image Share app to a smart device and share your photos and videos instantly. The app also lets you control the camera directly from your smartphone or tablet device, you can even geo-tag photos, and apply custom signatures, Art Filters and stamps.

Full HD shooting

Simple, one-touch recording gives you immediate video capture while the Full HD 60p resolution produces smooth, clear and crisp moments. The impressive quality gives you stunningly smooth action moments, even allowing frame-by-frame super-slow motion playback.

You can simultaneously shoot full resolution stills during video recording, so you don't miss a photo opportunity.

A time-lapse function compresses up to five hours of footage into a marvellous 20 second video.

The textured synthetic leather, brushed aluminium accents, and ergonomic grips give the Olympus SH-1 Superzoom Compact Digital Camera a classic styling that's designed to accommodate every shooting style.
