Product details

The Olympus SZ-17 Superzoom Compact Digital Camera offers outstanding image quality, next-level zooming and a responsive performance for amazing everyday digital photography.

Masses of detail

With iHS technology the Olympus SZ-17 delivers exceptional image quality for both stills and movies. A 16 megapixel sensor produces optimal image quality across all shooting occasions.

The intelligent iHS technology combines a high-speed TruPic V image processor with the high sensitivity CMOS image sensor, delivering a faster image response and a dramatically improved low-light shooting performance.   The powerful image processor also ensures high-levels of detail, natural colour tones and enhanced colour controllability.

Optical prowess

A 24x wide optical zoom with 48x super resolution allows you to achieve spectacular close-ups and detailed shots from distance. A focal length of 25-600 mm gives you suburb scope for creativity - you have control over each photograph, and can frame and shoot quickly.

The super resolution zoom doubles the zoom power to 48x so you can capture distant subjects without loss of image quality. Thanks to the Telephoto Macro you can zoom in for extreme close-up shots with stunning background blur.

With AF tracking you can keep unpredictable subject in sharp focus, great for shooting pets or active kids.

Creative shooting

Capture breathtaking panoramic views in one frame, all at a simple touch. The Smart Panorama mode works by sweeping across the scene, automatically knitting individual stills into one stunning image.

There is a host of scene modes to help you achieve the best results, along with a handy iAuto function that scans the scene, automatically selecting the best settings for you.

Movie mode

Shoot striking high definition movies on the Olympus SZ-17 Compact Digital Camera, capable of capturing video in Full HD (1080p) resolution at 30 fps. You can also maximise the frame-by-frame quality for high-speed shooting, and at 240 fps you are able to slow the shot down and view in brilliant slow-motion on an HDTV. A one-touch record button allows you to start shooting movies instantly.

Thanks to the advanced TruePic V image processing engine you can capture stills and movies simultaneously, so you'll never miss that one-off moment.

Capture your special moments with the Olympus SZ-17 Superzoom Compact Digital Camera.
