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.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
