The technology triple threat that conquers challenging shooting conditions. Significantly better performance and unmatched image quality. A high-sensitivity backlit CMOS sensor combines with the blazing fast TruePic™ VI image processor, high-speed autofocus, enhanced scene and subject recognition and super resolution zoom to produce jaw-dropping images locations that make even the most seasoned photographers cringe.

MULTI-RECORDING
Think of it as multi-tasking. The Multi-Recording feature lets you record a Full HD Video while simultaneously snapping still images at full resolution. Or shoot the same video with two different setting at the same time; wide-angle and close up, with and without Magic Filters, or record a Full HD Video for viewing and smaller VGA file for sharing— for the ultimate shooting experience.

I have had several Olympus cameras and had good luck with all of them. Received the SZ-31MR just before a trip to Victoria, BC in September. Beautiful weather and the city was still green with lots of flowers. This trip was really a great opportunity to test the versatility of the camera, macro for the flowers, various wide angle and telephoto for harbor scenes, legislative house by day and night, scenery pictures from a drive in the mountains, etc. etc. September is a beautiful time of the year to visit Victoria by the way. I tried out the "hand-held starlight" with impressive results. Obviously the results are better if the camera is supported, but did get some great night shots of lit buildings, street markets, etc. Impressed with the versatility of the camera, optical zoom is very impressive for something this small and light, even digital zoom is good in day light. For a fit in your pocket, light weight, pretty much do it all camera, I can't think of a better one. I have also used the "pet mode" to get some great pictures of our dogs!

I needed a camera with strong optical zoom, that could take decent lower light photos on cruises, about the neighaborhood, and sometimes pinch-hit with video. This is my second camera from Olympus, the last being a 1996 D-500L. (Which still works and for a .85 mega pixel unit does very well.) The optical zoom is quick. The ability to get around auto-focus and tap the video screen is one feature I consider key to enjoying it. Where some cameras struggle to focus, this one is able to lock onto whatever I touch, if it is stuck at all. The dial for primary modes is handy and prevents the need to deal with the menu most of the time. The secondary rotary dial helps speed through secondary menus and such. The video quality was surprisingly good, and though I will continue to use my dedicated camcorder for most video needs, this one provides an alternative I don't feel any hesitation to use. The ability to instantly start video recording from a secondary button is excellent. The burst photo modes are handy and work well. I can use this camera and have confidence that if I hit the shutter button the photo is there. There is some lag with displaying the results, however you quickly learn to ignore the lag and just shoot pictures. The camera is fast and powerful enough that you do not need to worry, you just shoot. Put a 16 GB SD card into this camera and just fire away. I found myself taking far more photos that turned out vastly better than a 10 mega pixel Kodak I replaced with this device.

No, this isn't as tiny as some pocket cameras nor as connected as phones. But if you seriously need to have why tiny cameras or phones are lousy for even slightly thoughtful photography, you don't need this camera or to read this review. I would buy this camera with high confidence, even some of the lesser models in the line. Though in this case, you get all features. I can see this camera working hard for fully three or four years.

A lot of research went into buying this camera and it was worth the time. We have a DSLR camera with multiple lenses, but it is never available when you need it. It is just too bulky to carry everywhere. The SZ31 is slightly bulkier that the basic point and shoot, but is an excellent size and wieght for everyday use. We compared the SZ31 with a basic Canon point and shoot with less zoom capability. Take into consideration that the Canon was $50 less and is a couple years older.

Picture comparisons. All pictures taken without a tripod:
View Finder: The Canon has a view finder as-well-as the LCD screen. However, the LCD screen must be turned off to preserve AA battery life. There is no on-board charger The Olympus has only the LCD screen, but has a stronger battery and on-board charging.The battery lasted through a day of shooting.
Sea plane at approx 1+ miles: Canon photos blurred-barely distinguish the plane. The Olympus was clear with mid zoom.
Outdoor group photos: Canon had some blurred photos. Olympus was sharper and more vivid even though the user was shaking.Flying stink bugs were very clear.
Distance group photos: All Canon shots were blurred. The Olympus was much sharper with better color.
Beach pebbles in/out of the water: The canon took a decent photo of the beach pebbles, but the pebbles in the water were washed out. The Olympus pictures appeared as though you were looking through Polaroid glasses. The pebbles in the water were very vivid.
Panoramas: The Canon could not take panorama. Individual shots had to be stitched on a computer program. The Olympus has a meter showing the progress of the spanning. The panoramas were excellent.

The photo software program that comes with this camera is excellent and relatively easy to use.

Just got it went out took pics. all the magic senes are great. I just know I'm going to have fun with this camera. FYI: Order an extra battery at least one. It uses the battery very fast with I guess all the features. I did and an extra charger both are inexpensive on amazon. The charger that comes with the camera has to plug in through the camera. The charger I got for extra battery just goes in charger much easier esp. if u were using one while charging the other. Love the camera. Hope this helps.
