This digital camera has some good features, but is also missing a couple of features:
Bigger than average optical zoom
Has an image stabilizer
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.\<br>\\with telephoto macro, you can zoom in for larger-than-life close-ups from up to 40cm 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. you can also film high-speed HD movies at 120 frames per second, which gives you the option to play back fast-action scenes in dramatic slow-motion. other creative options include photo with movie clip that automatically records video before or after taking A shot, or the smart panorama feature, which stitches together multiple photos when you pan the camera. sharing your images on social media or the web is easy via an external flashair card and your familiar smartphone interface.\<br>\\the sz-16 makes everything beautifully simple, be it shooting or sharing, up close or far away.\<br>\<br> 24x wide optical zoom \
\\Benefit from an incredibly high-powered zoom and boost it to 48x with the super resolution feature for remarkable detail at a distance.\<br>\<br> intelligence, high-sensitivity and high-speed \
\\Equipped with the truepic V processor and CMOS sensor, the sz-16 delivers superb image quality, even in low light.\<br>\<br> full HD movies & high-speed HD movies \
\\Enjoy full HD movie quality, and high-speed shooting capabilities up to 240 frames per second with the sz-16.\<br>\<br> bring far-away close up \
