16 megapixel CMOS sensor; 24x optical zoom with 25mm wide-angle; 1080p full HD video recording with stereo sound; Multi-recording function for stills and video simultaneously; 3-inch touchscreen LCD; Optical image stabilization; 7 fps continuous shooting; Lithium-ion battery
Announced alongside the SZ-12, the SZ-31MR has the same body and lens
range but contains a CMOS sensor rather than CCD. A bit bulkier than
your pocket, the SZ-31MR fits an impressive 24x zoom in a relatively small body. For an extra $200 the SZ-31MR adds a touch screen, 1080p video recording, that better sensor, 7fps continuous shooting, and the ability to record stills and video simultaneously. Is it worth the premium?
