With spectacular image quality and advanced video recording features, the SH-50 iHS is the only thing you'll need to capture truly amazing stills and videos. Equipped with a 24x wide-angle optical zoom lens (25-600 mm equivalent), you'll get super close to the action even if you can't move in any closer. And when you consider its low light performance, high-speed responsiveness, iHS technology, and the most sophisticated 5-axis video stabilization on the market in a point-and-shoot camera, your days of settling for cell phone pics or hauling around a dedicated camcorder are over.
The SH-50 iHS is the compact digital camera to be equipped with image stabilization that mechanically compensates for rotary shift as well as horizontal and vertical angular shift. The 3-axis Photo IS uses the same driver mechanism as the OM-D to also correct blur along the optical axis. Blur-free, stable autofocus thanks to the most powerful image stabilization in its class.
The Olympus SH-50 iHS is the digital compact camera to employ five-axis stabilization for video recording. This ground-breaking image stabilization technology that migrated down from the Olympus E-M5 system compensates for blur that occurs across 5 directions on three separate planes of motion: angular, transitional and rotary. By combining powerful mechanical and electronic hybrid image stabilization, videos appear smooth and clear.
