OUTSTANDING IMAGE QUALITY
A powerful, DSLR-quality Image Processor and a cutting-edge BSI CMOS sensor come together to dramatically improve image quality with spectacular low-light performance, blazing fast autofocus, enhanced Intelligent Auto for spectacular scene and subject recognition and Super-Resolution Zoom.
24X WIDE-ANGLE OPTICAL ZOOM (25-600MM EQUIVALENT)
All the capabilities you need in one compact lens that wont weigh you down. The 24x optical zoom gets you amazingly close to the action while the 25mm Wide-Angle lens lets you capture breathtaking panoramas and large group shots even when there isnt room to back up.
3-AXIS IMAGE STABILIZATION
The SH-50 iHS is the first compact digital camera to be equipped with image stabilization that mechanically compensates for rotary shift as well as horizontal and vertical angular shift. The 3-axis Photo IS uses the same driver mechanism as the OM-D to also correct blur along the optical axis. Blur-free, stable autofocus thanks to the most powerful image stabilization in its class.
HAND-HELD STARLIGHT WITH FLASH
Even when shooting night scenes when blur is more likely to occur, you can shoot beautiful photos holding the camera in your hands. When the shutter is released, multiple images are shot simultaneously and merged into one photo with less noise in low light situations. When the flash is enabled, you get optimal exposure of both the foreground and background resulting in stunning low light images.
WORLD'S FIRST 5 AXIS VIDEO STABILIZATION ON A COMPACT CAMERA
The Olympus SH-50 iHS is the World's first digital compact camera to employ five-axis stabilization for video recording. This ground-breaking image stabilization technology that migrated down from the Olympus E-M5 system compensates for blur that occurs across 5 directions on three separate planes of motion: angular, transitional and rotary. By combining a powerful mechanical and electronic hybrid image stabilization, videos appear smooth and clear.
1080P FULL HD VIDEO WITH HDMI OUTPUT & CONTROL
A simple, one-touch button allows you shoot clear, crisp full HD videos in 1080p right from your camera.
ADVANCED MOVIE MODE

Control your frame rate, make white balance adjustments and even set the self timer right from easy-to-access menus.
HIGH-SPEED HD VIDEOS
For the first time on a digital compact camera, now you can record high-speed videos in high definition. At a frame rate of 120 frames per second in 720p HD, you'll enjoy slow motion playback of all your greatest action moments!
MULTI-MOTION MOVIE IS
The newly-developed image stabilization technique helps to reduce camera blur caused by walking or breathing when shooting videos.

Capture breathtaking panoramic views and vistas just as you remember them, all in one frame and at the touch of a button, by simply panning the camera across the scene. No computer necessary!
ADVANCED SHADOW ADJUSTMENT TECHNOLOGY
Automatically compensates for shadowed areas to minimize the differences in highlight and lowlight areas resulting in more uniform exposure across the image.
HAND-HELD STARLIGHT MODE WITH FLASH
Hand-Held Starlight with Flash automatically snaps several images and then stitches them together into a single, blur-free image with minimal noise resulting in stunning low light images.
HDR BACKLIGHT ADJUSTMENT
Shooting into backlight typically results in washed out, overly bright images. Backlight HDR Adjustment takes a collage of images at various exposure levels and blends them into one, perfectly exposed image.
