  • Excellent audio recorder at a budget price. 1080p HD video recording is a nice bonus, and image quality is on par with iPhone 4 and better Flip cameras. Nice variety of features, including tripod mount and 1/8-inch mic and headphone jacks.


  • Top-mounted camera lens limits video shooting in many situations. A few too many buttons. Recording video requires extra button press to switch to camera mode.

Con quel suo look in stile Transformers, refrattario alla moda del minimale, il nuovo registratore portatile di Olympus lo dice subito chiaro e tondo: "Non sono un gingillo per ragazzine". E infatti l' LS-20M si dimostra tutt'altro: permette la...
