Olympus SZ-10 Review

 

And on they come! Compact maxi zoom digicams.

This one has an 18x optical zoom, equating to a 28-504mm lens as 35 SLR equivalent, As I've said before, try to fit out a DSLR with an 18x zoom and you hit a brick wall!

Olympus SZ-10

 

Lots of features and a good zoom. Clear screen. Great value from a good manufacturer.

Viewing screen flimsy and may scratch easily. No separate viewfinder. Features are a bit confusing and difficult to learn.
