Olympus announced the 16-megapixel VR-340 digital camera with 10x super wide optical zoom lens (24-240mm equivalent) and advanced digital technology all packed into an exquisitely attractive slim metal casing.
The Olympus VR-340 includes all the technology you'd expect from more expensive compact cameras, including a standout 16-megapixel sensor, AF Illuminator and higher ISO for shooting in low light, designed to enhance your shots.
Add style and artistic flair to your photos with nine Magic Art Filters that work with videos and still photos alike. The new Beauty Make-up mode enhances the look of faces in your shots. Laid out like a cosmetic toolbox, it lets you apply everything from eyeliner and eye shadow to rouge for skin blemishes. You can even lift cheekbones and morph your subjects to give them a cover-model look.
A simple, one-touch button allows you to record video clips with amazing clarity in high-definition, right from your camera. With sophisticated AF tracking, you can have confidence in capturing fast moving subjects like kids and pets. Simply preview and share all of your images on the Olympus VR-340's large 3.0-inch, high-resolution LCD for proof that this camera's beauty is more than skin deep.
