HD video recorder

The new LS-20M is the first Olympus recorder that captures and edits 1080p HD video while recording 24-bit/96kHz Linear PCM stereo sound. Combined with four different optional Magic Movie special effects features, the LS-20M enables users to create movies that look and sound like professional productions in a device that's so compact it fits in a pocket. Users can capture full HD movies utilizing one of three video format settings up to 1080p. The camera lens and microphones are located on top of the unit -- just point the device in the direction of the intended object and hit record. A crisp, 2" color LCD on the front of the device clearly displays the video as its being shot. Below the video LCD is a1.46" LCD data screen that displays time, audio levels and battery life.
