As far as the wide angled shots are concerned, the SP-620UZ offers f/3.1 aperture opening while it is f/3.0 in case of SZ-14, but the image produced by the latter is brighter. Moreover, f/6.9 of SZ-14 is certainly superior to f/5.8 of SP-620UZ when it comes to full telephoto.
Besides the longer zooming option, the Olympus SP-620UZ Super-zoom Digital Camera will also offer an excellent viewing acreage measuring 3 inches diagonally, located at its rear end. Accompanied by the extra pixel counts for the sensor, you can easily crop the shots to compensate for the shorter zoom. However, it is definitely going to benefit the users with brighter outputs even under lower sensitivities and shorter exposures.
The super-macro mode of the Olympus SP-620UZ Super-zoom Digital Camera gets you as close as 1 cm from your subject. The iAuto regular macro setting offers 20 cm for the wide angle and 1.8 m for the full telephoto shots.
The high performance of the device is well evident from the distance shots that revealed original colours, distinct surface textures and sharp contrasts even at 100 percent zoom. The rainbow effect upon the water surface and the washing out of colours under the subdued conditions like overcast skies are the primary drawbacks of the shooter.

For a shallow depth field you can set sensitivity level at ISO 200 and the aperture at f/3.8 to get a decent indoor shot with balanced colours and sharp contrasts. From ISO 400 noise gradually creeps in. If you activate the flash the sensitivity level will automatically drop down to ISO 100 and the background will get quite darkened. Hence, in order to maintain an overall evenness the ambient light condition is highly recommended.
The Olympus SP-620UZ Super-zoom Digital Camera is capable of shooting 720p videos at 30 fps frame speed. You will also get to shoot at 640 x 480 pixels and 160 x 120 pixels resolutions which are quite appropriate for web footages.
Though the camera is embedded with a sensitive microphone and a noise cancellation option, but you cannot zoom in while recording a video.
