The new Olympus SZ-12 is an ambitious addition to the company's S-series of cameras. Normally "travel-zoom" models of this type clock in at around 10 - 15x, but the SZ-12 pushes the envelope way out to an impressive 24x. This worries us, since image quality has a tendency to suffer as zoom increases, but we won't know for sure until we get this camera into the lab.
For now, the SZ-12 is an intriguing camera to watch.
