Brains and beauty, the VG-160 has them all


Olympus VG-160 stylish compact A dutiful companion for capturing life's fleeting moments. Budget-friendly, yet packed with respectable specs, the VG-160 helps you capture your photos with ease and clarity.

The camera boasts a 14Mp CCD imaging sensor that takes both detailed photos and 720p HD video. A 3.0" LCD screen gives you a generous platform on which to compose and review images, while the 5x wide-angle zoom lens gets close to your subjects and gives you a wide view of the scene, allowing everyone to get into the shot.

Additional features like digital image stabilization ensure that your shots are blur-free. Intelligent Auto + Shadow Adjustment automatically identifies the type of scene you're shooting and adjusts the camera's settings for the best result possible. Magic Art Filters gives you the latitude to use up to 12 special effects for your photos or videos to add a creative touch your memories. AF Tracking gives you a leg up on capturing unpredictable, fast-moving subjects, and face detection ensures that every face in the frame looks great. Jan 9, 2012
