Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point & shoot Black - Expert Reviews

Overall Review

Olympus Stylus SZ-16, is a long zoom camera sporting 1/2.3-inch, CMOS, and 16-megapixel sensor. CMOS sensors are the new generation camera sensors that are speedier and allow faster burst shoot performance and better and responsive AF. Its video frames rates are higher for achieving slow motion playback. The worries of noise and sensitivity have been removed by the invention of backside-illuminated CMOS sensor. Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point and Shoot sports the ISO sensitivity range of 100 to 6400. The image processor is TruePic VI that handles a second burst of three images. When you drop the burst speed over to 1.5fps, you can shoot 200 frames at one go. When you cut the resolution by three megapixels, you can capture 28 images at 30fps.
The camera covers all from 25 to 600mm-equivalents, thus justifying its 24x optical zoom, even though the maximum aperture is relatively dim. The wide angle starts at f/3.0 and the telephoto position falls over to f/6.9. The lens structuring involves 11 elements in 10 groups. At wide angle, the lens can focus at minimum 10cm normally, but when locked onto 79mm, it will focus to only 3cm, which is good for your macro shots. Resultantly, you get both, face detection and tracking functions. The sensor is mounted on a mobile platter that in turn gives out true mechanical stabilization. At the rear, you have three inches wide LCD with resolution of 460,000 dots. Exposure includes Program and Intelligent Auto. Unlike DSLRS, Manual and priority modes are missing.

The shutter speeds ambit begins from 1/4th of a second to 1/2000th of a second; it can even be raised to as high as four seconds under the night mode. At 3200 ISO, at wide angle, the built in flash has a working range of 13.2meters and at 5.7meters telephoto.
The camera comes with special modes that direct the user towards liberty of use and creativity. The HDR backlight adjustment mode combines serial, multiple shots to create a singular image with even greater dynamic range than it is possible with single exposure. The starlight mode in hand held position is similar but increases sensitivity to get smaller shutter speed. The exposure to remove noise levels is average here. The iAuto mode recognizes 34 different types of scenes. You also get selection of 11 magic filter effects, beauty mode that produces portraits and simulates blush makeup.

The smart panorama tool captures full circle scene wherein, all you need is to press the shutter and sweep the camera across. SZ16 catches videos in H.264 compressed .MOV format. All your work gets stored inside secure digital cards involving SDHC and SDXC and UHS-I cards. The camera is Wi-Fi capable. The internal memory of 43MB can be complemented with the memory cards. You can have high-def HDMI output directly to your TV. Data can be transferred over your PC with USB 2.0 high-speed data. The HDMI feature requires an HDMI CEC standard cable for controlling your camera via TV remote. The camera derives its power from an LI-50B proprietary lithium-ion rechargeable battery pack. The camera is available in two color options, Silver and White.

Design and Build Quality

The physical controls at the back of Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point and Shoot are quite accessible. The TFT LCD screen is 3inches wide, which helps to view clean pictures. The camera can easily sit in one hand with the thumb rest getting to sit at the top right hand corner. It switches on quickly. The menu display over the screen is intuitive and responsive as well. ISO settings and exposure compensation can be altered with ease, with a single button. The Menu system is also quite easy to handle and navigate through. The entire design is quite stylish and glossy. The choice of colors in which Olympus is selling the camera is remarkable; Silver and White.

Focus and Face Detection

With Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point and Shoot, you get three types of focusing namely, AF tracking, spot focusing, and face detection. Under face detection mode, the camera can detect up to eight faces in a single frame. Spot focusing stresses on the subject placed in the middle of the screen. The two types hardly take time and are quite easy to be used. When you come to AF tracking, the matter gets a little tricky. First, the camera locks onto the subject via focus square amidst screen by pressing OK button. After you have locked onto the subject, you would see the focus square move along with the subject. But capturing the image of a moving subject isn't possible. The AF point simply traces the subject on. When you press the shutter button, the camera will lock on to the subject at the particular instant where it was.

Lens and Image Stabilization

Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point and Shoot sports 24x wide-angle optical zoom lens of which, the 35mm equivalent focal length range is 25-600mm, which lets you take beautiful group and panorama shots. The wide-angle lets you take expensive vistas as well, the powerful telephoto on the other end lets you get close ups. The super macro mode offers clean close-ups, close to 1.18inches. The max aperture at wide-angle is f/3.0 that will gather enough light for clear dark lit scene photography. There is digital zoom available up to 4x and the super-resolution zoom goes up to 2x. The lens technology used here has been basically developed for professional SLRs. The technology actually lowers down the optical aberrations that appear in many other cameras with super zoom or long zoom. Image stabilization is also there with the camera. It is of dual type, combining sensor shift image stabilization with high ISO sensitivity to alleviate the blur effects of camera movement and providing you with clean images in low light and at long telephoto end.

Screen and Menus

Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point and Shoot screen is 3inches wide TFT LCD. Viewing the screen from different angles and in different situations is easy. The menu navigation is easy to pick the functions and play with them.

Your high-speed video recording can be achieved at 240fps (VGA) that lets you in turn, achieve super-slow motion video playback. There are up to 8 different types of Magic Filter video enhancement effects that can be applied to the movies. The videos can be shot at 1080p Full HD.


Olympus Stylus SZ-16 Point and Shoot brings together 16MP in the high-sensitivity CMOS sensor that delivers apt quality image with reduced noise for enhanced image detail, especially in dark lit conditions. The DSLR quality image processor along with the sensor makes AF fast and iAuto makes it even better by subject and scene recognition with the super-resolution zoom.
