The Japanese digital camera maker Olympus will release a new superzoom model under the Stylus SH-2 brand name. The new camera, as the brand name suggests, is here to replace the SH-1 model but adds a few more features here and there.

The Stylus SH-2 will feature a retro-styled chassis that measures 109 x 63 x 42 mm and weighs 271 grams. The camera is based on a 16 MP 1/2.3-inch (6.17 x 4.55 mm) CMOS sensor and has a powerful TruePic VII image processor, 24x optical zoom (25 mm wide-angle to 600 mm telephoto), ISO 125-6400, 5-axis image stabilization that supports both still images and video capture, minimum shutter speed of 30 s, maximum shutter speed of 1/2000 s and more. The camera also has a fixed 3-inch display, 37 MB of internal memory, a SD/SDHC/SDXC memory card slot, 802.11n Wi-Fi, a microphone, a HDMI port and a USB port. The installed battery is good for up to 380 shots and there’s support for RAW files and video shooting at Full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels at 60p and 30p) and at HD resolution (1280 x 720 pixels at 30p).

The new Olympus SH-2 will be available in April 2015 for USD 399. There will be two color options – Black or Silver.
