High visibility screen
The large 3-inch 460K-dot LCD screen display frames your photos in exceptional detail. Reviewing everything is simple too thanks to straightforward controls.
Optical image stabiliser
Capture crisp images and videos. Blurring image due to handshake often occurs in shooting using high zoom, however, the Optical Image Stabiliser minimises it without causing deterioration of image quality.
The DMC-SZ8 records dynamic HD video in 1280 x 720p. Recording motion image can be started with a press of an independent motion picture button on the top of the camera - convenient for switching between photo and video shooting on the fly.
