The OLYMPUS SZ-14 DX “Big Telephoto Set” includes the OLYMPUS SZ-14 compact digital camera, equipped with a 24x optical zoom that fits in the palm of your hand, as well as an 8x pair of binoculars. With the combination of the camera’s high-power lens and the binoculars, users can enjoy the double zoom, allowing them to capture the expressions on children’s faces at school games and events, as well as the action of athletes at sporting events, with a level of detail not visible to the naked eye. Because the zoom of camera and binoculars can be used separately, this is a family set, perfect for travel, sporting events, museums and much more.

Sensor shift image stabilization and DUAL IS for high-sensitivity shooting provides compensates for camera shake when zooming. Additionally, the multi-motion supported image stabilization function reduces camera shake when shooting while walking or following a subject, enabling easy shooting of high-grade movies. Because the included binoculars are a compact, lightweight foldable-type, they are perfect for keeping baggage light and convenient during family outings.

*1 The intended shooting mode may not be used depending on the scene. When the camera cannot determine an optimal mode, shooting will switch to Program Auto.
