The SZ-31MR is a high-spec camera featuring multi-recording capability to record a still photo and movie at the same time, new "iHS" technology for high-quality low-light shooting and fast AF, plus an incredibly powerful 24X optical/48X super-resolution zoom. Together, these features let you capture the perfect moment under any light at any distance, with stunningly beautiful results.
"iHS" is the cutting-edge technology to record as you desire without fail. The powerful image processor, TruePic V (DUAL) realized high image quality and high-speed processing. The backlit CMOS sensor realized the fast drive as well as high sensitivity and less noise. With "iHS" technology provided by them, various scenes can be captured beautifully and reliably.
When you'll go to any extreme to get the perfect shot, you want a camera that'll go there with you. The newly developed super-resolution zoom will take you right where you want to go. With a total zoom ratio of 48X working in conjunction with the 24X optical zoom, this super zoom will take you where you want to go, bringing you face to face with distant subjects, while maintaining topnotch picture quality, free from the image degradation that mars conventional digital zooming.
The back-illuminated 16-megapixel CMOS sensor and the 3.0-inch, 920,000-dot high-definition touchscreen LCD help you record life's most fleeting and most beautiful moments in high quality that you will treasure forever. The high-performance DUAL IS mechanism prevents blurring due to camera shake, assuring the best-possible results every time.
Multi-recording captures two different kinds of images simultaneously using the Dual TruePic image processing engines. Available recording methods include "photo in movie" that records a full HD movie and full-sized still photo simultaneously and "multi-frame" that records wide and close-up photos simultaneously.
