About Olympus VR-340

The Olympus VR-340 Digital Camera (Gift Pack, White) is a wallet-friendly point-and-shoot with a number of respectable features. Chief among them is the VR-340's 16Mp image sensor which both captures high res stills and 720p HD video. Helping the sensor along of course is the 10x optical zoom 24-240mm (equivalent) lens. This lens gives you both the ability to get up close to your subject and far-out to ensure everyone in the group shot makes it into the photo.

Also helping you to record your memories with ease is the generous 3.0" LCD, a built-in flash and the dual image stabilization function to reduce blur, among other features. No matter what you shoot, however, the VR-340 records files to removable SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards. And when it comes time to edit and share, the camera's included software is compatible with both Windows and Mac computers.

Additional features include "Beauty Mode with Makeup Mode", a function that beautifies portraits by softening shadows and smoothing wrinkles and blemishes. Magic Art Filters come into play, helping you expand your creativity with 12 different special effects which can be added to photos and videos. Intelligent Auto + Shadow Adjustment works by automatically detecting what kind of scene you're shooting and adjusting the camera's settings for you. AF tracking tracks unpredictable, fast-moving subjects and face detection ensures every face in the frame looks great.

Close to what I wanted


from TN  -  Casual Photographer

I am still learning to use it. I had an Olympus Stylus 9000 I really loked but it got stolen. This camera does most of the same things, but I was disapointed to find the panorama photos have to be put together using the ib software instead of in the camera.
