  • Low price, Vivid colours, Good menus, Highquality video mode
  • Noise in some images, Chunky design
  • A great inexpensive choice, the Olympus SH-21 is well suited to travellers who need a versatile snapper that feels like it could take a knock. The well thought-out quick-access menus are a boon. All in all, it's a great little package....

  • Pleasant handling, 1080p HD video with zoom, Picture quality at wideangle settings
  • Picture quality could be better from 800 ISO upwards, Lens quality at telephoto settings, TN screen (looks black when viewed from below), Touchscreen interface is incomplete (not active in menus)
  • The Olympus SH-21 is a basic but nicely designed camera with a promising set of tech specs. Unfortunately, picture quality isn't quite up to scratch—mainly because lens quality is just too variable between models. Even if you do happen to get an SH-21 ...

  • The Olympus SH-21 packs a great range of features and is compact with an impressive zoom range. The camera takes a decent image but detail isn't as strong as you'd hope for from a 16 megapixel sensor, but where the SH-21 does excel is noise at higher ISO...

  • Déjà bon dans les appareils photo hybrides, Olympus fait progresser la qualité de ses compacts : ce SH-21 gère mieux les hautes ISO que la génération précédente, la vidéo est de meilleure tenue, etc. Mais la qualité de l'optique, la faiblesse de l'aut...

  • Prise en mains agréable, Vidéo HD 1080p et zoom actif, Qualité d'image au grandangle.
  • Qualité d'image perfectible passés 800 ISO, Qualité optique au télé, Écran TN (illisible vu d'endessous), Interface tactile incomplète (inactive dans les menus).
  • Sous une présentation basique mais agréable, le SH-21 propose une fiche technique intéressante. Malheureusement, la qualité d'image n'est pas totalement au rendez-vous, faute d'homogénéité de l'objectif. Mais même avec un bon exemplaire de l'optique, l...
