Here we are comparing SZ-31MR iHS and G16, two Compact cameras from Olympus and Canon. Olympus SZ-31MR iHS is a Small Sensor Superzoom class camera and Canon PowerShot G16 is a Small Sensor Compact class camera.
Olympus SZ-31MR iHS was introduced to market in February 2012 and Canon G16 was launched in November 2013.
