Optical zoom, that celebrated conqueror of crappy, nose-bleed seats at sporting events, reaches new levels of excellence with this pocket-sized titan from Olympus. The SZ-14 brings 24x optical wide zoom 25-600mm lens to the party which essentially takes you from the back-of-the-stand to back-of-the-net.
There’s also some top image stabilising and face detection tech on board as well as 720p HD video. All this for under £200. Who
says the iPhone 4S is the only camera you’ll need?
