  • CENTER VALLEY, P.A., March 31, 2014 – Olympus introduces a breakthrough in the long zoom category, the STYLUS SH-1, the first compact camera equipped with optical2 5-axis image stabilization for both still images and videos. The STYLUS SH-1’s 5-axis mechanical image stabilization, originally developed for the Olympus OM-D E-M5 interchangeable lens camera, combined with a powerful 24x, high-powered optical zoom lens, full 1080 60p HD video and built-in Wi-Fi3, delivers outstanding performance in a body with an elegant look and feel.

    Advanced technology, including a 16-megapixel backlit CMOS sensor and the TruePic VII image processor, the same found in Olympus’ award-winning OM-D series of interchangeable lens cameras, work in connection with the Olympus STYLUS SH-1’s impressive 24x optical long zoom lens, (48x4 super-resolution zoom) which covers 25mm to 600mm5 telephoto. This combination delivers beautiful image quality with high resolution, superior color reproduction and high sensitivity.

    The in-body 5-axis sensor-shift image stabilization, now enhanced to support still images, corrects for various types of camera shake to deliver crisp images and video even when shooting in dark locations without a flash or tripod. The Olympus STYLUS SH-1 also incorporates a new hybrid image stabilization that electronically stabilizes movie shooting to easily create natural-looking recordings of children and other active subjects, even when the user is walking.

    The design of the Olympus STYLUS SH-1 is inherited from the popular Olympus PEN interchangeable lens system cameras. The top and main controls are built with aluminum alloy, and superior craftsmanship extends to every detail of the camera components, including the lens barrel, dials and grip.

    Built-in Wi-Fi is easy to set up. Sync with the Wi-Fi network created by the camera by quickly scanning the QR code displayed on the camera’s 3-inch, high-resolution 460,000-dot rear touch LCD monitor with a smart device. The complimentary Olympus Image Share app synchronizes a user’s iOS or Android mobile device and the Olympus STYLUS SH-1 so the camera’s Live View is displayed on the phone. The camera can be fully controlled remotely by touching the Smartphone display, as if it were the camera itself, and users can send selected images directly to websites and social media.

    The Olympus STYLUS SH-1 is equipped with an updated Advanced Movie Mode for powerful video recording functions, including fast 240 fps6 (or 120 fps in 720p) High-Speed Movie, which allows users to capture subjects that move at split-second speeds, and 60-frames-per-second HD recording7 for smoother images of moving subjects. Photo & Movie Capture allows users to simultaneously capture full-res still photos while recording Full HD video. The Time-Lapse Movie*8 feature compresses up to five hours of action into a 20-second time-lapse video.

    Expanded creative capabilities include an Interval Shooting function for a maximum of 99 shots; High-speed burst shooting for capturing up to 11 fps in full resolution; Manual Mode for adjusting exposure parameters; Live Guide for adjusting color and brightness via touch sliders; an electronic Level Gauge for perfectly aligned photos; Touch screen controls for selecting the autofocus area and tripping the shutter and multiple Art Filters and Photo Story.

  • Anyone know what the data rates are for the video modes?

    EM1's IBIS with higher framerates at this price makes me very curious.
