Stylish ultra-zoom that fits in your pocket

The Olympus SZ-10 covers a remarkably wide shooting range with focal lengths ranging from 28mm wide-angle to 504mm telephoto with the super-telephoto 22x optical zoom lens. It can capture big, up-close images of even the most distant subjects, creating high-impact pictures by capturing details that cannot be seen with the naked eye, such as the facial expressions of children in athletic or theatrical events or athletes in professional sport competitions.

14 megapixel CCD, 18x wide optical zoom, and powerful DUAL IS

Despite a powerful 18x zoom, the camera is incredibly compact. And easy to use.


Image Stabilization is an indispensable feature for the cameras with powerful zoom. To prevent the picture blur due to camera shake and subject motion, the SZ-10 features DUAL IS using a CCD-shift image stabilization mechanism and high-sensitivity image capturing, by an effect of up to 4 shutter speed steps.
