and Pricing in India The Olympus SZ-14 retails with a 4GB SD card for Rs. 16,990, which is the MRP. Go out in the market and you should be able to buy it for a few hundred rupees less, along with a pouch. Some online shopping websites are selling this...

While the Olympus SZ-30 MR was a pleasant camera with good performances, our tests merely confirmed our suspicions about this mid-range version with its scaled-down specs: it's not as good. You're therefore better off looking for a cut-price...

A massive 24x zoom and an extremely competitive price, but the sensor doesn't pull its weight and image quality suffers...

Although there may be a few issues that could be improved upon, such as the non-standard USB interface and the iESP metering system's propensity for overexposure, the Olympus SZ-14 still represents good value for the price. Point and shoot...

The SZ-14 is a fun camera to shoot with, offering a long, 24x optical zoom lens and plenty of creative filters to boot, but it doesn't offer the best image quality for your...

Olympus' Super Zoom series combines 14-megpaixel resolution and a long optical zoom lens that gives the (35mm film equivalent) focal length of 25-600mm, so more than enough range to cover almost any shooting task from landscapes to wildlife and bird...

User friendly budget-priced travel zoom omits the higher-end rival likes of GPS and Full HD video, but offers most features that casual snappers would want and for a value added price tag that won’t bust a...

At $349 it’s actually a tough segment to satisfy. On one side of the ledger you’ve got buyers wanting plenty of options, features that perform and an expectation that $349 of their hard earned must give them a good return. The other side of...

This review camera dropped out of the box — in bright red! Talk about making a statement!I’m not sure how you all feel about CICs — cameras in colours. It’s not that important to me, except for the benefit of making the control...

The Olympus SZ-14 boasts a remarkable amount of optical zoom for a camera which you can carry around in your pocket. Negatives of note are the lack of rubber grip on the front of the camera which is found on other SZ models, movies are restricted to...

The SZ-14 represents great value for money for a camera with so long a zoom. Image quality is good, colours are bright and the build quality and menus are excellent. The panorama mode is a little fiddly, but otherwise it's a good job well...

Si l'Olympus SZ-30 était agréable et performant ; la fiche technique de sa version « light » nous donnait déjà une idée et le test nous l'a confirmé : le SZ-14 est nettement inférieur. On...

International Review By 01Net on 80

Techniquement, ce SZ14 mérite 3/5 face à des appareils aussi performants que le nouveau Sony HX20v. Seulement le HX20 coûte 420 € tandis que le SZ14 se négocie déjà à 200 € de moins. Alors, si vous...
