Olympus is a virtually unnoticed move has rolled out a new ultrazoom camera in the US. The SZ-11 builds on its predecessor with a longer-reaching but potentially dimmer 20X, f3-6.9 lens. The more current entry gets a larger 16-megapixel sensor (up from 14) as well as a higher ISO 3,200 sensitivity.

Both share 720p video recording and a three-inch, 460,000-pixel LCD. The SZ-11 adds two new Art Filters and is also considerably faster than its predecessor, shooting full-size images twice as quickly at 1.7 frames per second, ranging up to 7FPS for a five-second burst. Dropping down to five megapixels also nets about 50 percent faster shooting at 15FPS.

The SZ-11 doesn’t have a definite release date but will cost $280 with black, red, and silver as color options.
