Kids’ Sports – Olympus Stylus SH-1

Kids’ Sports – Olympus Stylus SH-1


Despite its stylish good looks, this premium point & shoot camera is a high-tech machine that will deliver crisp, sharp photos of your child’s speed-skating feats plus smooth, pro-looking video. Advanced video capabilities, creative control options and intelligent shooting modes will take your photography where no smartphone can.

The SH-1’s built-in Wi-Fi connectivity for instant sharing, Full HD video recording, 24x optical zoom, and intelligent shooting modes will make it your go-to photography tool.

This is the first P&S camera with five-axis image stabilization for both video and stills, so you’ll always get clear images and smooth action sequences. In video mode, its image stabilization performance is superior to that of a digital camcorder! And you can record high-speed footage you can replay in frame-by-frame super-slow motion. Combine that with the SH-1’s wide-angle, 24x zoom (25–600mm equivalent) and you can shoot blur-free from any distance.

Plus, in Photo & Movie Capture mode, the camera simultaneously captures full-res, 16-megapixel still photos while recording video. Want more creativity in your videos? Time-lapse movie compresses up to five hours of action into a 20-second clip.

For those who want more control of the process, the SH-1 allows you to customize settings (ISO, shutter speed, aperture) in manual mode and use the live guide to adjust color and brightness on the fly. Plus, touch-screen controls make it easy to select autofocus points and trip the shutter.

Other great features include: continuous shooting at an impressive 11 frames per sec; interval shooting (up to 99 shots); backlight HDR that automatically combines multiple images to achieve the optimal brightness; handheld starlight mode for sharp night scenes without using a tripod; and panorama mode for easy panning.

With Wi-Fi built right in, the SH-1 is designed to complement your digital lifestyle. Download the free Olympus Image Share app to your smart device and share photo and movie files with a press of a button. You can also control and operate the camera remotely, geotag photos for locations, and apply custom signatures, creative art filters and fun stamps. $399.99.
