Olympus Stylus SH-2 with Olympus Stylus SH-1 Overview


Let's compare Stylus SH-1 with Stylus SH-2. Both cameras produced Olympus. These models are included in the Small Sensor Superzoom cameras. Olympus SH-1 was released in 2014, and Olympus SH-2 in 2015. Stylus SH-2 is newer, which is a plus. Stylus SH-1 1 years older.
These two cameras have the same sensor resolution - 16 MP. The more megapixels the camera has, the more detailed and clear the picture will be. The number of megapixels will also affect the maximum size of the photos, which then can be printed without loss of quality.
At the second camera (Stylus SH-2), the minimum ISO value is lower, which gives more opportunities for shooting in daylight. A larger maximum ISO allows you to take good pictures in the dark. Both cameras have 5-axis Sensor-shift image stabilization. Both cameras feature a 3-inch fixed screen.
Burst mode, also called continuous shooting mode, sports mode or continuous high speed mode, is a shooting mode in still cameras. Olympus Stylus SH-1 has 11.5 fps continuous shooting. Olympus Stylus SH-1 has 11.5 fps continuous shooting.
