Compact travel zoom. The Olympus Stylus SH-2 is a compact long-zoom camera ideal for when you want something compact, light and with enough zoom power for your travels. It has a cool retro look, comes in all-black or black/silver and sports a 24x optical zoom lens in a compact body.

Movies are captured in Full HD video at 1080/60p. Use High-Speed Movie to stretch scenes in slow (120fps) or super-slow motion (240fps).
