23 Reasons For

Good Brand

On average Olympus compact camera digital cameras have good reviews compared to other brands as do all digital cameras produced by Olympus.

CCD Sensor Type

This digital camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most commonly found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to it. CCD sensors produce high quality, low-noise images but consume a lot more power than CMOS sensors. CCD is the most common image sensor type used in digital cameras.

We think you might also be interested in some of the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor currently available including because of it's better review score, the Coolpix L120 ($299.50), or the Coolpix L320 ($179.99) both from Nikon.

With a screen size of 3 inches, the Olympus VH-210 has one of the larger screen sizes amongst compact camera digital cameras of this age.

We compared this digital camera to all the other 3" screen digital cameras and we think the Nikon Coolpix L120 ($299.50), the Fujifilm Finepix F800, and the Samsung WB800F which has better reviews is also worth considering.

If this Olympus digital camera screen size is too small for you then you might want to consider the Nikon Coolpix P520 (3.2"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.
