SZ-30MR is the world’s first point and shoot digital to be able to record 1080p Full HD and take decent 16-megapixel photos at the same time – thanks to an ingenious Olympus function called Multi Recording or MR.
For anyone who has photographed an image in a certain way and then (when it was too late) wanted to used a completely different function, MR is absolutely necessary. Dual Engine TruePic III+ image processor can give the SZ-30MR model simultaneous recording power in multiple ways and in a variety of combinations.
Users can record two movies at once: one wide and one in the foreground, full HD resolution and smaller, original or effects (using one of the seven Magic Filters for SZ-30MR films). In addition, with the Clip Video Photo setting, it is now possible to record movie clips before and after shooting. All these innovations present flexibility to users, recording can take place in a variety of media styles – from posters to full screen video-size pages to your favourite social networks.
To be released this month, the SZ-30MR will cost about Euro 329 which is approximately £283.
