16 Reasons For

Olympus Has Good Reviews for Its Digital Cameras

We checked 1,704 expert and owner reviews for Olympus digital cameras and found that on average Olympus has good reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Olympus has good reviews specifically within its compact camera digital cameras range.

Good Size

One Olympus VR-350 owner who bought the product wrote that it was compact. Steves-Digicams.com wrote on expert website Steve's Digicams “For 2012, Olympus has introduced three almost identical models in their V-Series line of compact, point-and-shoot digital still cameras; the VR-340, VR-350”.

CCD Sensor Type

This camera has a CCD sensor type, which is the most frequently found sensor type on compact camera digital cameras that have been on the market for around the same time as 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 compared all the other digital cameras that have a CCD sensor to this camera and we think the Coolpix L120, and the Coolpix L320 both from Nikon which has better reviews is also worth considering.

At 3 inches, the Olympus VR-350 has a quite large screen size compared to most of the other digital cameras of this age and spec. Compact camera digital cameras that are a comparable age to the VR-350 have screen sizes of between 1" and 4.8".

It may also be worth also looking at one of the alternative 3" screen digital cameras currently available including the Nikon Coolpix L120 which has better reviews.

If you are looking for a larger screen size then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix P520 ($349.00) (3.2"), or the Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX77 (3.5") which also has a higher rating.
