Compact bridge camera for families

  • “I love the stylish design! Its compact size is perfect for our family travels and provides us advanced functions too.“

    The SH-2’s premium design in classic silver or elegant black feels good in your hand and complements any modern family photography. The enhanced leather-like texture and metal body add a refined touch.

  • “Now we can take sharp stills and movies, even in low light, thanks to great image stabilisation.”

    Powerful optical 5-axis image stabilisation with the SH-2 compensates for all types of camera shake to deliver sharp, blur-free scenes without the need for a tripod. It’s the best compact camera for photography while travelling and for family celebrations.

  • “Capturing beautiful scenes with children at centre stage has never been easier, even in the evening or at night.”

    With Nightscape Mode for your portrait photography or landscape photography style, you can capture beautiful night-time scenes in clear quality: fireworks are spectacular, starry skies amazing and candlelight scenes gorgeous. Use Live Composite to take dynamic photos featuring both city lights and stars.


Must-have SH-2 features

  • SH-2: Get closer to the scene

    Despite its compact, slim design, the SH-2 features a high-power 24x optical zoom (48x Super Resolution Zoom) that gets you closer to the most distant subjects. You can even magnify tiny objects from just 40 cm away.

  • SH-2: Make movie magic

    Enjoy your family-time even more and make a movie together with this video camera. Use any one of the
    SH-2’s four advanced functions: 120/240 fps high-speed Movie, Photo & Movie Capture, Time Lapse/Night Scene Time Lapse Movie and last but not least the Full HD 30p/60p Movie which lets you record smooth films that look amazing when viewed on your large-screen Full HD TV.

  • SH-2: Share on the spot

    Share your latest pictures with family and friends. Built-in Wi-Fi and OI.Share let you easily connect the SH-2 to your smartphone and upload images. Or use your mobile as a remote to shoot blur-free nightscapes.
