These days it seems that all digital cameras look more or less the same. We get the modern appearance, but sometimes we need something different too. Something to remind us of the stylish old school cameras. You may call us nostalgic but we really loved our grandfather’s old cameras. Fortunately, our wishes have been heard and the new Olympus SH-1 camera comes with a stylish retro look, cool features and a really good price.
The new Olympus SH-1 features the interchangeable lens bodies, more specifically an image stabilization 5-axis on-sensor. It has a 16MP resolution, a 25-600mm f/3.0-6.3 lens and a ½.3 inch sensor. All these features give the camera a long 24x zoom.
The exterior looks superb with its faux-leather grip and metallic aluminum body. The interior features a TruePic VII processor, a Wi-Fi connectivity and the capacity to record full HD videos at 60 frames per second.
The great thing about the 5 axis image stabilization feature is that it allows you to take still images, corrects those annoying camera shakes and you’ll be able to take crisp pictures and videos even if you’re in a darker location with no flash or tripod. The cool Olympus SH-1 design seems to be inspired by the famous Olympus PEN cameras including the grips, barrel and buttons. Another great feature is the Interval Shooting option that allows you to take 99 shots. You can manually adjust the exposure and the colors using the helpful touch sliders.
Olympus SH-1 price and availability
The new Olympus SH-1 retro looking camera costs around $400 and it will be available this coming May.
All in all the Olympus SH-1 is a great camera that looks good, takes quality pictures and comes at a very affordable price. Professional photographers can say that they’ve seen better cameras but the amateur photographers will really enjoy it.
