Fed up of pressing buttons to find the feature you want and long for a camera that is more intuitive? Olympus’ compact VH-410 touch screen model is that camera. Choose the subject you want to focus on simply by touching the portion of the screen on which it appears, and then fire the shutter with a further screen tap.
As well as being a pleasure to handle, the affordable 16 megapixel resolution VH-410 is also very easy on the eye, thanks to a lack of buttons prompting a more stylish design. This is one metal-bodied camera that photographers of all skill sets will definitely want to pick up and try for themselves. Great results are delivered automatically, and for a fantastic price.
Although compact in size and looking a treat, performance and image quality hasn’t been compromised. An extremely versatile wide 26mm to 130mm equivalent zoom lens in 35mm film terms enables the VH-410 to stay true to Olympus’ remarkable photographic pedigree and deliver beautiful pictures. For those looking to capture action shots, up to 15fps is offered at 3 megapixels.
The Olympus VH-410 offers a large 3-inch size, 460,000-dot high-resolution touch panel LCD screen for framing and reviewing your photos. With two levels of brightness adjustment offered, this means that sharing shots on the spot with family and friends is not only a possibility but also a real pleasure.
Unexpected in this eminently affordable price category is a slender design at just 20.5mm in depth with the lens retracted. This enables the Olympus VH-410 to deliver both style and substance in one desirable package.
Connectivity is also enhanced by the VH-410 being compatible with widely available SD and SDHC media cards. It also features the useful back up of a 64MB internal memory.
Taking a great picture with the Olympus VH-410 is as easy as pointing and shooting, thanks to i-Auto mode. This compares common scenes and subjects with on board settings and automatically selects the most appropriate to deliver stunning results that optimize the impact of said subject.
What’s more an intelligently ergonomic control layout means that it’ s easier than ever to capture photos and videos free from worry.
A bugbear of zoom cameras is the propensity for camera shake at longer focal lengths, when shooting handheld or in lower lighting conditions. Olympus therefore offers digital image stabilisation to minimise the potentially damaging effects of image blur.
As a further help, light sensitivity settings between ISO100-1600 are also manually selectable. Alternatively, turn on the built-in flash.
The Olympus VH-410 doesn’t just deliver the goods on paper. In practice too, with a 16-megapixel top photo resolution and 720p High Definition video recording in AVI Motion JPEG format, the manufacturer’s trademark pixel rich image quality is very much in evidence; even when pictures are viewed on a large screen television via the camera’s mini HDMI output.
Thanks to picture enhancing aids such as Shadow Adjustment Technology, AF tracking, Advanced Face Detection Technology, in-camera panorama, Beauty Make-Up mode, a 5cm closest macro mode, plus a smattering of 14 scene modes to ensure perfect focus and exposure for any given subject, slip the Olympus VH-410 in your pocket and you’re all set for photo excellence.
Specifically designed to expand the creative potential of digital photography, this impressive function of the VH-410 utilises in-camera image processing technology to effortlessly transform the everyday into extraordinary scenes. Simple to operate, the filters allow users to create entirely new worlds with their images. From vibrant colours and pencil drawings to mysterious or rounded perspectives, artistic spirits can magically turn ideas into reality.
Users can choose from Punk, Pop Art, Pin Hole, Drawing, Fish Eye, Soft Focus, Watercolour, Reflection, Miniature and new addition Sparkle (photos only).
Connect the camera to a computer and let the battery charge while you save and organise your images. The supplied super-compact AC adaptor also makes it easy to charge the battery in-camera while you're travelling.
Thanks to [ib] software images can be browsed, organized, and viewed by person, place, location or event.
The Olympus VH-410 is available in blue, black, pink and silver.
