The new LS-20M is Olympus’ first recorder that captures and edits 1080p HD video while recording 24 bit/96 kHz Linear PCM stereo sound.
This compact camcorder may fit in your pocket, but it allows users to create home movies that look and sound like professional productions.
The camera lens, and microphone is located on top of the unit – you just have to point in the direction of the intended object, and hit record. The camcorder features a 2.0-inch color LCD on the front and it clearly displays the video as its being shot. Below the video LCD is a 1.46-inch LCD data screen that displays time, audio levels and battery life.
The HD video compression format makes it easy to upload videos to Facebook, YouTube, iTunes, Vimeo and other web-based content sharing sites, and the resolution offers remarkable detail on modern home theatre systems.
The camera features a 4.1mm autofocus lens, and 4x digital zoom delivering premium video no matter where you are shooting. The Olympus LS-20M also allows for low light recording.
