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.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
