Sophisticated AF Features and Interval Shooting
Getting sharp images of moving subjects is no problem thanks to the SH-1’s touch-screen shutter operation, super high-speed FAST AF technology and ability to fire off up to 11 frames per second in full resolution. Interval Shooting is another tool for channeling your creativity; you can select any number of frames from 1 to 99, establish intervals from 10 seconds to an hour and set the timer at up to 60 minutes – great for changing weather, flower blooming and other fixed-point observations of movement.
Go Old School with Manual Controls
The many automatic features of the SH-1 make it easy to take great photos and video. But sometimes you want to take matters into your own hands and apply your knowledge of just how a camera works. The SH-1’s Manual Exposure mode lets you do just that; you can customize ISO, shutter speed and aperture settings to achieve the specific effects you envision, and check out the results on the LCD monitor before you snap the shutter. You can also use Live Guide to adjust color and brightness on the fly.
Olympus iHS Technology – Intelligent High Speed
All the bells and whistles in the world don’t matter if a camera doesn’t have the right “guts.” The SH-1 most definitely does, sporting Olympus’s best-in-class 16-megapixel BSI CMOS sensor and the same TruePic VII image processor found on the acclaimed OM-D series cameras. This killer combo powers the camera’s enhanced Intelligent Auto – which recognizes subject matter and chooses the right settings almost instantaneously – and high-speed autofocus, enabling you to get the shots you want, when you want them.
The Photos Are Only the Beginning
Clear, sharp, colorful images are great – but sometimes you want to mess around with them a little bit. The SH-1 makes doing so easy thanks to eleven in-camera Art Filters that you can apply for effects like Pin Hole, Grainy Film and Soft Focus – no computer required! Another creative tool is Photo Story, which allows you to create a multi-perspective narrative within a single image – for example, an establishing shot and several close-ups; multiple templates are available for you to experiment with.
