New Olympus 3D camera to feature 12.5x zoom, metal design

The new Olympus VR-330 compact digital camera will have a 24-300mm lens

In April, Olympus will release its VR-330 compact camera, which will pack a massive 12.5x zoom and a 14-megapixel sensor. The new camera will be made of metal and be small enough to fit in your pocket.

Its lens will have a range of 24-300mm, which should make it perfect for travellers. In addition to a huge lens, the Olympus VR-330 camera will have the ability to capture 3D photos in any mode. The 3D photos in .MPO files which can then be played back on a 3D television or laptop.

Like most recent Olympus cameras, the VR-330 will feature Art modes, which Olympus has billed as 'Magic Art Filters' for this camera. They include Pop Art, Pin Hole, Fish-Eye, Soft Focus, Drawing, Punk and Sparkle filters.

See some of the Olympus Art filters in action in our picture gallery for the Olympus PEN E-P2 camera.

The VR-330 will have a sparse control layout with only essential menu buttons located on the rear next to the 3in LCD display, and a dedicated button for initiating HD video recordings.

Pricing for the new camera is yet to be set.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
