Olympus VH-210 compact camera
Rounded edges and a metal surface give the Olympus VH-210 a simple elegance, but it’s the head-turning colours that really set it apart. The organic camera design was the inspiration for six colour versions named after six fruits: Apple Red, Grape Purple, Lychee White, Kiwi Green, Apricot Orange and Black Berry. The Olympus VH-210 digital camera combines its eye-catching contours and colours with advanced imaging aids, which is ideal if you like your imaging lively and light. Features like i-Auto and Beauty Mode automatically pick the right settings so you can capture quality photos and videos with none of the fuss.
Olympus VH-210 features
True to Olympus Smart Series vision, the Olympus VH 210 camera does away with everything you don’t really need, replacing switches and settings with automatic aids that do all the work. The result is a compact camera that’s quick and easy to use - plus pictures and videos that it’s a pleasure to share. Thanks to 14 Megapixels, 5x wide optical zoom lens and built-in Digital Image Stabilization, photographs come out sharp and colorful. For creative users, Macro Mode lets you zoom right in to capture detailed close-ups in radiant colour while 3D Red and Cyan generates dynamic 3D photos that you can even view on a regular TV. Furthermore, the Olympus budget camera is packed with nine Magic Filters to add special effects to both pictures and videos.
