The 24x super wide optical zoom lens on the SZ-16 takes you from "Wow, look at this valley" all the way to "Oh, what a beautiful butterfly! ", without you moving at all. What's more: you can capture the butterfly in just as much detail as the valley thanks to super-resolution zoom that boosts still-photo magnification to 48x without any loss of image quality. Another clever feature makes sure you don't disturb the butterfly before you get your shot. With telephoto macro, you can zoom in for larger-than-life close-ups from up to 40 cm away so there's no risk of scaring off your subject. The SZ-16 gives you the power to capture brilliant stills and Full HD movies with excellent frame-by-frame clarity - thanks to the high-sensitivity CMOS sensor and high-speed processor that come with next-generation iHS technologies. The SZ-16 makes everything beautifully simple, be it shooting or sharing, up close or far away.
