Olympus VG-170 review

 

New 14MP compact camera offers premium features at bargain price

Packed with features ; Cheap ; Easy to use ; Large, high resolution screen ; Wide 26mm lens

Basic image quality isn't great ; Many images have cold colour cast ; Few Magic Filters add value ; Needs fewer features but better execution

The new Olympus VG-170 packs a host of features into an affordable, compact camera body. With a recommended UK price of £100 and available to buy for just £80 if you shop around, this camera falls firmly into budget compact territory - but comes with...

Olympus VG-170 Review

 

As part of the Smart series of cameras, the Olympus VG-170 is a dapper looking digital compact camera with a 14 megapixel CCD sensor, 5x optical zoom and a 3 inch LCD screen. The main addition to the VG-170 is the massive flash that sits in the top...

What a surprise the little Olympus VG-170 has turned out to be. Not only is it a sexy little number but it also takes cracking pictures, and on top of that it's great fun to use. The design won't be for everyone because of the enormous flash that the...

For the price of a point and click it is an exceptionally good camera. The flash is spot on. I use this every day for work

Olympus VG-170

 

Easy to use and works well. Best flash in a small camera I have used - but also works well in low lighting without a flash.
