“At last a camera that proves you don’t have to spend a fortune to get a big kick out of great quality pictures. The new Olympus VR-310 offers unrivalled value for money – a combination of the newest technology, the most compact design and the easiest handling at a sensationally low price. This compact camera has what it takes for a fast-paced, high-tech lifestyle and in this price category it’s head and shoulders above the rest. None of the VR-310’s rivals comes close to its startling combination of features: a powerful optical zoom, ultra-slim dimensions, seven creative Magic Filter options and HD Movie capability. With this impressive spec, the VR-310 delivers more than just value-for-money. The quality of the stills and movies it captures is exceptional, thanks not least to the 10x super wide 24-240mm* zoom lens that defies the camera’s slim contours. With automatic features like Dual Image Stabilisation and Intelligent Automatic Mode (i-Auto), it’s the ideal standard-bearer for Olympus’ next-generation VR Series that makes easy-to-use, super smart, super zoom compacts available at an unbeatable price. The VR-310 is available for €129 from January 2011.”
