Every note played by the band, every word selected by the guest speaker and every giggle from the kids at a birthday party — the digital recording capabilities of the LS-20M help capture it all in rich, better-than-CD quality sound.

Full HD 1080P movie

The compact and highly portable LS-20M lets you capture all of life’s best moments in full 1080P at 30 frames per second. 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.

Shoot creative movies with Magic Movie Filters

Magic Movie special effects technology turns scenes of everyday life into extraordinary images that are distinctive and compelling. Express your creative vision in your HD videos using one of four Magic Filters: Rock, Pop, Sketch and Pin Hole.

Use the LS-20M as a web cam

SD Card Slot

Never run out of recording space again. The LS-20M is SD/SDHC card compatible so you can capture oodles of audio and video – and still have room to store documents or other files.

Electronic Image Stabilizer

Reduce the amount of recorder shake that can occur when shooting movies in low-light situations or when shooting with high magnification.

4x Digital Zoom

The recorder features a 4.1mm (16:9 at 49mm, 4:3 at 59mm) autofocus lens and 4x digital zoom delivering premium video no matter where you are shooting.

Charge how it suits you

Keep the LS-20M charged and ready to go with charging options availale via a USB cable or optional AC adaptor. You can also quickly transfer your files over to your Mac or PC via the USB cable.

Low-cut Filter and auto + manual recording level

The LS-20M features a switchable low-cut filter that enables users to eliminate low-frequency sounds and unwanted background noises. For your convenience, the Olympus LS-20M also offers manual or auto-level recording. The “auto” level is perfect if you are recording from the crowd. Thanks to the manual level, musicians can capture optimal sound checks and live performances.

Multitask with dual LCD's

The dual LCDs on the LS-20 allow you to frame your video while simultaneously checking your audio levels.
